This Bar Lets Customers Adopt A Dog While They Enjoy A Drink

It's been a good month for dog news.

Tickets went on sale for a Valentine's cockapoo and pug café.

The Canine Crew, a group of therapy dogs to help nervous flyers, started working at Southampton Airport.

And Team Tyla lost its mind over images of The American Rescue Dog Show, which shines a spotlight on all the beautiful, loving rescue pooches out there.

In more doggo-related news, an innovative animal lover has created the first ever tap house where boozers can 'adopt' a dog while they enjoy a bevvy.

Sipping a cold drink at the end of a long, hard day - all while stroking a rescue dog? Heaven.

Scott Porter, 57, is on a mission to promote the vital work that dog charities do, and to get more animals adopted in the process.

His idea? Fido's, claimed to be the World's First Dog Tap House, located in Tigard, Oregon.

Working in partnership with Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, the bar fosters rescue dogs in need of a loving home.

The dogs then live at the tap house until they are adopted.

While punters enjoy snacks and drinks, they also have the option to pet and peruse the resident pooches who are on offer to be adopted.

Talking about the venture, Scott said: "So far Fido's have got 74 dogs adopted - and I cry for nearly every dog that gets adopted.

"Since we opened in January 2018, people have shown both their contained and un-contained excitement at seeing rescue dogs living inside our bar.

"We had to design the floor plan of the bar to separate our rescue dogs from the food and beverage dining area to follow the legalities.

"When people come to visit Fido's they are able to enjoy craft beer, cider, wine, mixed drinks and great food whilst helping us to get these amazing dogs adopted!"
