Příběhy zatoulaných mazlíčků, ze kterých se z různých důvodů stali bezdomovci, mívají dobré i špatné konce. Nemějte však obavy – příběh, který vám představíme nyní, patří k těm s dobrým.

Popeye, malý roztomilý pejsek a hlavní postava tohoto příběhu, kdysi býval bez domova. Toulal se ulicemi amerického Los Angeles a při životě ho udržovaly jen zbytky jídel, které vyštrachal v popelnicích nebo našel pohozené někde na zemi. Až do dne, než ho našla laskavá žena jménem Ivy Diep, která se zatoulaného psíka ujala.

Jak sama prozradila, našla jej špinavého a vyzáblého. V tu dobu už měla tato žena psů plný dům, ale protože tohoto nikdy jiný nechtěl, ponechala si ho.

Poté přišel nápad se založením instagramového profiluThe Foodie Dog – ve volném překladu tedy něco jako „Pes labužník“– jak je Popeye na instagramu známý, se stal rychle populárním. Jeho pánička si ho začala vodit s sebou do restaurací, kde ho fotí i s jídlem.

Going all out with the seasonal pumpkin cheesecake, sweet potato pie, and more at @urthcaffe to celebrate 100k! 😆😭 thank you so much!!! So grateful for all the love. Since the humans are incapable of responding to all the comments and questions, it’s probably a good time to answer some common questions, again. 1. What breed is Popeye? We know he’s a mixed breed, but no one knows for certain what mix. Some guesses are pomapoo or Pom yorkie. He’s 11.5 lbs and neutered. 2. How old is Popeye? We think he’s about 4 years old. 3. Where did you adopt him? We found him as a stray over two years ago. He was only 7 lbs when we found him. 😢 Could not find his previous owners and at the time, couldn’t find him new owners. Plenty of takers now! 4. Does he get to eat? We feed him bits of anything that is safe for him. We also carry his favorite snacks. 5. How do we get him to sit in front of food without lunging at it? He’s always been well behaved around food. He’s more interested in his dog snacks. 6. How overweight are his humans and what are their cholesterol levels? Just a lil bit more since 50k. Momma’s level is normal, papa is a lil higher than normal. 7. Are his ears always like that? Yes. 8. Where do you get his clothes and accessories? Anywhere, usually Amazon or other store. We try to tag when we can. 9. Is he a service dog? Nope. We look for restaurants with a pet friendly patio (#petfriendlydininginla). He has attended some media events where he was indoor. We also like to keep him in his pet carrier (from @wagwear, another common ask) 10. Do the humans work? Yes, we have our own jobs, including a family restaurant, @dipsgrill in Alhambra. Come check it out! 11. What camera do you use for his pics? iphone camera. 12. What is his favorite human food? We think it’s McDonald’s chicken nuggets. He loves it! . Thanks again and we hope you continue to enjoy his food adventures as much as we enjoy going on them. 😊 🐶 puppy cuddles for all!
