Steve MacBeth of 1787 Brewing Company served an unusual dinner guest during the pub’s Friends and Family Night on May 11.
Safyre, a rescue dog diagnosed with terminal cancer, was served a doggie plate of chicken. Eating out at a restaurant is part of her bucket list.
Foster Mom Carrie Castner, from Easton, of Outcast Rescue based in Lehigh Valley, explained that the 2-year-old mixed breed dog was rescued from an actively high-kill shelter in Philadelphia.
“She was brought there in horrible condition. She had a severe skin infection. Pretty much no hair. She looked like a burn victim,” said Castner.
Safyre was diagnosed with cancer. Surgery removed a large mass from her back but it returned. Diagnosed an aggressive form of cancer, Safyre has been given at most three months to live.
“We’re trying to fit a lot of fun into her life,” said Castner, explaining that eating out a restaurant is part of Safyre’s bucket list.
Obviously happy to be eating out on the patio of 1787, Safyre greeted people with kisses, a big doggie smile and a wagging tail.
“She walked through hell and came out an angel,” said Castner. “She is a fighter.”
