There were unlimited dog treats available, free ‘puppuccino’ drinks and prizes for best dressed dog at the event at Lost and Found.
Love was in the air at the Lost and Found pub in Birmingham city centre as dachshunds descended on the popular bar for a pup up café. We headed there to check out the event and ended up not wanting to leave as the little legs puppies made our heart swell with cuteness.
The Valentine’s Day special event, held on February 26, saw as many as 50 of the little dogs in attendance – all mingling together, although some were a bit nervous and preferred staying on their own.
There were unlimited dog treats available, free ‘puppuccino’ drinks and prizes for best dressed dog, it was a true paradise for all those adorable pooches.
The Pup Up Café hosted three sessions on Sunday, each focused on a different breed. There was one specifically for dachshunds – the one we attended – while there was also events for pugs and Frenchies, and doodles.
Not only there were ball-pits, tunnels, dog party hats other things for these pint-sized pooches to enjoy. But also competitions at each session for dogs to win prizes.
Each session was an hour and a half long and it was free entry for children under eight and for pups, although dogs still needed a ticket. A number of stalls were also set up selling local treats and goodies, such as dogs clothing, for people to buy while the pups played.
Pup Up Cafés are held across England and Wales, celebrating breeds like pugs and French bulldogs, as well as dachshunds and the Valentine’s Special event was not the first event on its kind in Birmingham. They visited Revolucion De Cuba, a short walk from New Street, in September 2022.
