Meatball’s Unending Smile is Simply Contagious

Many people will attest to the fact that sometimes you fall so much in love with a dog that you want to give him more than one name. His name is Meatball or Meaty for short, but we’re sure he’s been christened many other names especially by his now 52k followers on Instagram.

To cut this long story short, Meatball has been wearing an irresistible long smile from the moment he met a family that was prepared to forever give him the love he’d always craved for. It all began when Lisa Reilly met the plump pit-bull mix dog and instantly fell in love with him, thanks to his endearing nonstop smile.

“As soon as I met him, Meatball flashed the brightest smile I’d ever seen and it completely cracked me up!” Lisa said.

Before meeting his loving family and achieving all that internet glory, Meatball’s life wasn’t anywhere near a bed of roses. He’d been spending his days in a dog shelter in Fresno, California, hoping that a loving family would come for him. So things took a positive turn when Lisa decided to adopt him and the gentle giant of a dog hasn’t stopped grinning ever since!

And because he’s never one to miss a meal, Meatball’s love for food is evident in his 70 pounds weight.

“He actually looks like a real meatball because he has neither a neck nor a waist,” Lisa said.

“He goes super crazy whenever his treats come out,” she added.

As is shown in these pictures and many others on Instagram, Meatball can’t just stop smiling perhaps because he’s got more than he could have hoped for. And who doesn’t love a crazy Meatball.
