At Boris & Horton, dog owners will no longer have to tie up their pooch to a random street pole when they're jonesing for a coffee or beer, or dodge the look of sad abandonment from their furry friend's eyes.

Because after filling out all the paperwork, the café has become the city's first Department of Health-approved dog-friendly café, where customers are welcome to take their dogs inside.

Unlike cat cafes, which are home to rescue cats and cats up for adoption, the dog café will not have any permanent canine residents. It will, however, host adoption events and fundraisers.
