A smile can mean a lot of things. For this dog, a simple smile kick-started a whirlwind friendship with his new owner.
“He was running loose on my street. He was right across from my apartment at a schoolyard, milling about, sniffing some teachers’ butts,” Jon Bozak recalls of the day he found his new buddy.
Brinks didn’t have a home, but he did have something unique to offer: his smile.
Jon went and retrieved the dog. When he brought Brinks to his car, the dog sat on the front seat of the vehicle and nestled himself into a comfortable position. He looked out the window with a pleasant smile. That was the first time his new owner noticed his dog’s humanesque facial expression.
Brinks’ wide smile is vibrant and joyful. Jon quickly took a liking to the stray dog.
“I really didn’t want to get a second dog, but as soon as I saw him smiling at the world passing by my car, it pretty much was a non-decision. The best decision I made,” Jon explains in the video posted on December 11, 2016.
It has been a long time since Jon made his decision to welcome the stray into his home, but it was never one he regretted.
After 12 years of staring at Brinks’ adorable, smiley face, he “can’t help but be happy.”
