Once a homeless and starving canine, Popeye the dog now eats at some of the top hotels in Los Angeles.

The cute little dog was rescued by Ivy Diep, and now eats expensive meals alongside its owner.

"I found him as a stray," Ivy told Bored Panda. "He was such a mess - super skinny, heavily matted, dirty."

Ivy was not even looking for another dog at the time, but the sight of the poor creature made her decide 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" she said.

And then the idea of an Instagram page was born.

"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 any time 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 The Foodie as he's popular known now has over 160k followers on Instagram. Check out some of his best pics.
