A year ago, the pictures and videos you’re about to see wouldn’t have existed. Meatball, a Pit Bull, was chained up to a fence in Chicago during that time. Now? Well, let’s just say he’s one happy boy with a wonderful family!
One night in Chicago, someone spotted Meatball chained up in horrible condition. The poor dog’s head was extremely swollen, he had puncture wounds all over his face, and there were terrible cuts behind his ears and on his chest.
“He was in bad shape and he needed us,” Kimberly Koster, Meatball’s new mom says. She and her husband Kevin already have three dogs but they decided to take the 10-year-old Pit Bull in as a foster dog.
When they first took Meatball into their family, they knew it was going to be a long road of recovery to get the pooch back to health. That’s how they spent their first two months with the rescued dog.
“Caring for his wounds, giving him antibiotics, vitamins, medicated baths, etc,” Koster says. They just wanted to make sure that the senior dog had at least 5 more good years left with them.
