There are happy dogs and then there's Meaty.
“Meaty” The Pit Bull Mix Has A Smile As Big As His Heart
This pit bull mix exudes happiness, but his life wasn't always rainbows and smiles. Before his adoption, the happy pooch was waiting for his forever home at a no-kill shelter in California.
The Fresno Bully Rescue posted a photo of Meaty aka "Meatball" that caught Lisa Reilly's eye. She adopted the chunky pit, and he joined her other rescue dogs to make one big, happy family — as evidenced by the perpetual grin on Meaty's sweet face.
His photogenic looks led to 103,000 followers on Lisa's Instagram account and fans can't get enough of the happy-go-lucky fur baby.
Here is a collection of some of Meaty's happiest moments.
His versatile style - from pjs to wigs to tuxes and even a Princess Leia costume- continues to melt hearts but it's that ear to ear smile that keeps people coming back for more.
