Attention dog lovers — pug cafe is opening in London for one day only.

The pop-up will open on Saturday 9 September at The Book Club in Shoreditch, when proud pug owners will come together to let the public play with their pets.

The cafe will offer the usual refreshments for humans, including sandwiches and cakes, but the dogs will have their own menu featuring treats and "puggacinos".

Tickets for pug owners are £5 and £10 for pug lovers.

A proportion of the booking fee will be donated to The French & Pug Dog Foundation, which helps rescue and home dogs.

How do I get tickets?

Spaces for the event will no doubt fill up quickly, so it's advised to book your spot in advance.

You can book a place from 11am on Saturday 19 August at
