Meet Popeye, the adorable dog who literally went from rags to riches.

Ivy Diep first met Popeye when he was a stray dog roaming the street of Los Angeles. The dog was struggling to find food and now thanks to Diep he is eating the finest cuisine.

β€œI found him as a stray,” Diep shared with Bored Panda. “He was such a mess – super skinny, heavily matted, dirty.”

Although Diep wasn’t looking to add another dog to her family at the time, she couldn’t let PopeyeΒ continue living onΒ the streets.

“It wasn’t long before he made himself at home at my place with my other dogs,” she explained. β€œAnd of course, my husband and I fell in love [with him].”

After giving Popeye a little makeover and a warm home, one of Diep’s friends suggested she make an Instagram account for Popeye.

“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,” Diep said. β€œI’d bring Popeye any time I can, and we realized he was really good around food.”

She continued, β€œHe 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.”

Diep took the advice and Popeye quickly rose to fame. The dog’s Instagram account went viral fast and currently has over 111K followers.
