The Bat Out Of Hell singer had finished a rehearsal for the start of his North American tour in Albuquerque, New Mexico when several crew members spotted someone dumping the pooch behind a large trash bin.

The dog, dubbed Little Miss Karma, was looked after as the tour moved on to Phoenix, Arizona over the weekend (17-18Oct15), receiving check-ups from veterinarians, and Meat Loaf and his entourage have now found a permanent home for the hound on a ranch.

"Some of you already know that the other night after our rehearsal, our crew saw someone dumping this beautiful baby girl behind a dumpster," Meat Loaf wrote on, posting a picture of himself cuddling the puppy.

"They scooped her up and after a couple days of Vet visits, sleeping, lots of cuddles and settling into life on the road, Little Ms Karma, left us last night to go to her new forever home. We'll miss her but she's on her way to her new momma and sisters and a big ole ranch to run around and we're even more excited that she's staying a part of the extended Meat Loaf family forever!!!"
