Stray dogs are often found in the streets desperate for scraps to eat. Popeye used to be one of those dogs, before he was rescued into his fur-ever home by Ivy Diep. She describes him as being a mess when she found him and was “super skinny, heavily matted, dirty.”
Diep wasn’t looking for a new dog at the time, but no one else wanted him. She took him in and immediately fell in love with him. She named him Popeye, and he quickly fit in with the other dogs in her home. The once starving Popeye now has the opportunity to eat well every day.
