Uggie Shills for Dog Killers

Uggie is  a now 11-year old Jack Russell Terrier famous for his roles in Water for Elephants and The Artist. His memoir Uggie, My Story was published in October of 2012.
Uggie, a typically fearless and energetic male Jack Russell Terrier, was too much for his first two owners to handle, and he ended up in rescue before being fostered, and the permanently acquired, by animal trainer Omar Von Muller.
Ironically, the talented dog trainer Omar Von Muller now has Uggie shilling for PETA in an adoption campaign, despite the fact that PETA itself kills over 90 percent of the dogs turned over to it , the vast majority of them perfectly healthy animals. While the poster is nice, and the message sterling, almost any humane organization's brand would have been a better flag to fly under than PETA's.
