Formerly Starving Homeless Dog Now Eats At Pet-Friendly Restaurants Every Day

If you live in LA, you may have already heard about Popeye, the dog. Because while he was once a starving stray who have to scavenge for food, he now dines on the best food in town along with his owner Ivy Diep.

“I found him as a stray.” “He was such a mess – super skinny, heavily matted, dirty.” Ivy wasn’t looking for another dog, she already had a full-house, but she could not resist Popeye and decided to keep him. “It wasn’t long before he made himself at home at my place with my other dogs. And of course, my husband and I fell in love [with him].”

“One of my friends, Jen, suggested that I create an Instagram account for Popeye because he was cute. Jen and I liked to go on what we call ‘Instagram dates’ and take pics of our food. I’d bring Popeye anytime I can, and we realized he was really good around food. He doesn’t lunge for food or really even care for it. He just liked to be out. He’ll get nibbles of anything that’s safe for him. I also carry a bag of treats for him, in case there’s nothing he can have.”

Popeye now has over 108k followers on Instagram!
