THEY’RE small, they’re cute and they’re feisty, and 150 attended Glasgow’s first Dachshund Cafe in Glasgow.
The event was a sell out success, and saw a huge variety of sausage dogs grace Pie & Brew in Glasgow’s city centre.
Set up by Anushka Fernando, event organiser at the Pug Cafe group, the event highlighted the growing trend of sausage dogs in the UK, with a 40% surge in numbers the last two years.
She said: “Dachshund Cafe came about because we’d been doing Pug Cafe which was incredibly popular.
“We did that for about a year and then we had a huge amount of dachshund owners asking us to do a cafe for their breed.
“We knew they were really popular in Glasgow so we thought it made sense to bring the cafe here.”
The Dachshund Cafe gave the short legged dogs the chance to meet others of the same breed and gave their owners the opportunity to bond over mutual sausage dog affection.
The cafe was also open to those without dogs, who simply wanted to come, meet and play with the pooches.
The dogs were drooling over the canine cuisine provided, including wine for dogs, aptly named Paw-secco, and pup-cakes.
The Pug Cafe group are set to return to Glasgow with a French bulldog cafe in the near future, so if you missed out this time, keep your doggy senses alert for another chance to meet the city’s cute canines.
