Rescue dog's Instagram will melt your heart and make you hungry

Popeye The Dog's Instagram will make your heart melt an mouth water.

Once you meet Popeye, your eyes and your heart won't let you forget him.

A rescue mutt from the Los Angeles area is now Instagram famous because of his love for dining with his humans.

We first stumbled upon this story from our friends at Bored Panda who spoke with Popeye's owner. 

Ivy Diep tells Bored Panda that she found Popeye as a stray. She says he was skinny, heavily matted and dirty.

She wasn't looking for another dog, but she couldn't find anyone to take Popeye in so she decided to care for him herself.

Diep says her and her friend like to go on "Instagram dates" and take pictures of their food and of course she brings Popeye along.

"He [Popeye] doesn't lunge for food or really even care for it. He just likes to be out." Diep told Bored Panda. "He'll get nibbles of anything that's safe for him."

Because of Popeye's behavior around food and the obvious fact that he is cute as a button, Diep's friend suggested she make an Instagram account just for him.

With almost 131K followers on the picture sharing app, it's safe to say Popeye is Instagram famous now.
