Surviving the streets of Brooklyn New York City is no easy feat for a human, let alone a dog. Such was the case for Brinks, until he met a special human named Jon, who happened to be out walking his own dog Demo one day when his life would change forever. Brinks, an outgoing pup, went over to the two of them to say hi, and all three hit it off instantly.

Jon took Brinks home with him, and went out aggressively searching for his owners, posting missing dog flyers, canvassing his neighborhood. After he was unable to successfully locate Brinks owners, he adopted him into his home, at 11 months of age. Today, Brinks is a remarkable 13 years old and still as happy as the day they found each other.

“The most amazing thing is how Brinks grins like a human frequently in response to situations he enjoys, especially in the house. 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.”

    what an awesome dog!

    That’s a submissive grin, not a smile. The dog is signaling it is submissive and absolutely accepts that the person behind the camera is in a higher status.

    Depending on the scenario it also means *please don’t harass me, I’m no threat* to varying degrees of intensity.

    In this situation the dog is probably intending it as total supplication, and I enjoy what I have got going here, no hassle.

    Dogs don’t smile or frown. They show their feelings in completely different ways. It’s humans that need to anthropomorphize everything. That’s why ‘aliens’ have eyes, nose, mouth, etc. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t recognize them. His tail wag is much more indicative of his happiness. I have an adoptee, he hugs everyone’s leg, very affectionate, but probably a ‘please protect me’ after what he went through on the streets.

    he is genuinely smiling. don’t buy the “no, dogs don’t really smile” mumbo jumbo. he’s a super happy dude because he’s a lucky, lucky dog. i rescued a pit bull from the skidrow streets of downtown L.A. and found him a home with a very wealthy family. he was lucky as well. many never have a chance to have a good life. i’m happy for this happy, smiley boy. <3 you Brinks!
