“I immediately fell in love and I KNEW I had to have him,” Strugala told The Dodo. “I was looking at him for over a month with no hope of even getting him because I lived with other people and couldn’t get another dog. Well, some things changed and we moved out the next month and our new landlord not only let us have one pit bull, she let us have two! So, the first day we moved in, I applied for him.”
As soon as their living situation changed, the couple jumped at the chance to welcome Meatloaf into their family — and only five days after they moved into their new place, Meatloaf arrived in his new home.
