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.

Today, Brinks is a remarkable 13 years old and still as happy as the day they found each other.
