Popeye: Το αδέσποτο πεινασμένο σκυλάκι που διασώθηκε και σήμερα είναι ένας σταρ στο Instagram

O Popeye ήταν κάποτε ένας αδέσποτος σκύλος που λιμοκτονούσε και έτρωγε ό,τι μπορούσε να βρει στους δρόμους. Σήμερα είναι όμως ευτυχισμένος, πεντακάθαρος και συχνός θαμώνας των καλύτερων εστιατορίων του Λος Άντζελες μαζί με την ιδιοκτήτριά του, Ivy Diep.

«Τον βρήκα ως αδέσποτο,», είπε η Ivy στο Bored Panda. «Ήταν χάλια – πάρα πολύ αδύνατος, με μπλεγμένο τρίχωμα, βρώμικος». Αν και η ίδια αρχικά δεν είχε την πρόθεση να τον κρατήσει, καθώς είχε ήδη σκυλιά, τελικά το έκανε επειδή κανείς δεν τον ήθελε. Σύντομα, όπως λέει η ίδια, το σκυλάκι άρχισε να νιώθει άνετα και έγινε φίλος με τα άλλα σκυλιά της.

«Εγώ και ο άνδρας μου τον ερωτευτήκαμε. Μία φίλη μου πρότεινε να δημιουργήσω έναν λογαριασμό στο Instagram επειδή είναι πολύ χαριτωμένος», εξηγεί η σωτήρας του Popeye.

Και πραγματικά, η λέξη «χαριτωμένος» είναι λίγη για το πόσο όμορφο είναι το σκυλάκι. «Είναι πολύ φρόνιμος, δεν ορμάει στο φαγητό. Δοκιμάζει λίγο από οτιδήποτε είναι ασφαλές για εκείνον».

Αυτή τη στιγμή έχει πάνω από 109.000 ακόλουθους στο Instagram και όχι άδικα, αφού η μία φωτογραφία είναι πιο ωραία από την άλλη.

Σήμα κατατεθέν σίγουρα τα αυτάκια του, αφού τον κάνουν να μοιάζει με λούτρινο. Απολαύστε τον!

Popeye looked a lil nervous and rightfully so as this strawberry volcano dessert from @ohmypan in Pasadena toppled over shortly after. Part of it went into his carrier where he tried to lick it off. 🙈 #popeyethefoodie

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!
