BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Pit Bull Brinks was only 11-months-old when Jon and his dog, Demo, found him wandering the streets as a stray. The dog was looking for a place to call his own, when he crossed paths with the duo who instantly took a liking to him. That same day, Jon brought Brinks home with them, while they searched for his owner. Yet, after a month of posting flyers and looking to see if anyone had posted about Brinks, Jon realized the pup was here to stay.
Now 12-years-later, Brinks is still living with Jon and he is as happy as ever. Since being rescued, Brinks has had a permanent smile on his face, which has worked wonders in dispelling any misconceptions people may have about the breed. Jon reveals, “The most amazing thing is how Brinks grins like a human frequently in response to situations he enjoys.” The dog is a true optimist who just goes to show what a wonderful addition a Pit Bull can be to a home.
Jon also adds, “He smiles for treats, he smiles when you greet him in the morning and when he’s sleeping. He grins when he rides in the car, when he lies in the sun (or in front of the fire) and whenever he generally seems happy.” Brinks is one of the many dogs that was lucky enough to find a great owner but not every dog is so lucky.
