First, it was Pugs, then it was Frenchies. Now it’s all about the miniature Dachshund.

Manchester’s not short of adorable pups, but it’s a rare treat to find (and meet) so many in one place.

Fortunately for dog lovers, then, a pop-up sausage dog cafe is coming to Manchester next month where you can tickle tummies and scratch behind ears ’til your heart’s content. No need to accost random dogs in the street anymore.

The ‘pup-up’ cafe will be open to dog owners and dog lovers alike and will have a heap of activities going on throughout the day from doggy ball pits and treats to a special doggy photo booth.

There’ll be free personalised puppucinos (an espresso-shot-sized paper cup filled with whipped cream) and hand-wrapped dog treats and pupcakes – not to mention plenty of new butts to sniff, so the dogs should be in their element.

There will also be a donation pot for The Red Foundation, a registered Dachshund charity that rescues hard-up Dachshunds and helps them find their forever homes.

The first event took place in Exeter, with a whopping 200 Dachshunds (and their accompanying humans). Now it’s coming to Manchester, due to popular demand.

The day will be split into two sessions, with the first part dedicated solely to sausages, and the second open to a variety of toy and mini breeds from 2.30pm.

It takes place at Revolution, Parsonage Gardens on Sunday 18th August from 10am to 4pm. Tickets are live now via Facebook.
