This Adorable Foodie Pup Shares the Best Dog-Friendly Restaurants in L.A.

|

We are known to cover the best dog-friendly places in local areas, but a dog in Los Angeles is giving us a run for our money.

Named Popeye, the adorable rescue pup has been making his way all across Los Angeles, providing fans on Instagram a glimpse inside of some of his favorite pet-friendly spots in the area. Everywhere from In-N-Out to The Griddle Café and True Food Kitchen have been visited by this tiny pup.

While he doesn’t have a favorite spot, his “momma” Ivy Diep tells This Dog’s Life he does love McDonald’s chicken nuggets.

Diep decided to begin documenting Popeye’s adventures after realizing he was a complete gentleman around people food.

“We eat out quite often and would take pictures of our food. When Popeye joined our family, we realized that he preferred to be out and would always beg to go out with us,” Diep tells us. “We would bring Popeye to any of the pet-friendly places, and we realized how good he was around food.  He would sit still for photos.  And that’s when I started his account.”

Just as getting him to pose is no big deal, neither is worrying about him scarfing down the food, with Diep telling us, “He mostly more interested in his dog treats, which we always carry.”

Perhaps his good behavior can be explained because Popeye knows just how lucky he is.

Popeye was found as a stray, with long, matted hair, was dirty and super skinny. Not being able to find his owner or anyone who wanted to bring him into their home, Diep decided to keep him.

“It didn’t take long for him to make himself comfortable at our home with our other pups and for us to fall in love, “she says. “He’s now neutered, microchipped and 50 percent heavier.”

Here are some of our favorite Popeye adventures:
