Despite that, Meatloaf showed signs of friendliness. He kept wagging his tail as if he was delighted that he was finally safe. He was trying his best to overcome his anxiety.

His mom was worried that she might not find a family that she’d feel comfortable handing Meatloaf over to. Then, his foster mom met Brittney Strugala. Brittney was searching for a dog for her friend when she saw Meatloaf’s picture. Suddenly, she felt a strong need to adopt him.

Brittney and her fiancé had been thinking of getting a friend for Sky, their pit bull. Brittney knew that Meatloaf is that perfect friend. However, they weren’t allowed to have another dog in their apartment. So, the couple decided to move.

During their first day at their new apartment, Brittney immediately applied for Meatloaf’s adoption. Five days later, Meatloaf moved in with his new family. Meatloaf’s health has already improved at that time. However, he was still suffering from anxiety, so his new family did everything to help him out.

Sky also helped a lot in Meatloaf’s recovery. He helped him overcome his fears. Now, Meatloaf has become the goofiest pit bull he can be. With his family by his side, he knows there’s nothing that he can’t conquer.
