Yes! We absolutely love pug mixes just as much as pugs. If your pug is a mix, please ensure you tell us what mix in your email.

We love all dogs, but as this event is Pug Cafe we can only accommodate pugs or pug crosses. We’re very sorry about that, but we hope to do events for other breeds soon.
My pug has never been to a coffee shop or cafe before – I don’t know how they will react?
We recommend taking your pug to a dog-friendly coffee shop or café prior to the event to ensure they are OK in this environment. If your dog finds it stressful in any way, please do not bring them to the event and let us know as soon as possible.
