One day, as he was wandering the streets of Brooklyn, New York, a stray Pit Bull named Brinks came across a human named Jon, who was out walking his dog, Demo.

Reportedly, Brinks saw the human and his dog and walked over to greet them. The two dogs got along, and Jon took Brinks home with him. After a month of posting flyers and checking missing and lost dog reports, the decision was made to officially make Brinks a part of the family.

Brinks has been smiling ever since.

“The most amazing thing is how Brinks grins like a human frequently in response to situations he enjoys, especially around the house,” Jon, whose last name was not revealed, told BarkPost. “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.”

Take a look at the many smiles of Brinks.
