Brinkley's mom says: We rescued Brinkley in September of 2005. He looked so sadly pathetic at the pound. It did not take long for him to find his voice (he is very talkative) and become part of our home. He usually has a more serious look to him, but when he smiles it brightens up the room. We call him 'Little Man' because he tries to act grown-up, but really he is all puppy most of the time. He loves to be chased around and his energy is boundless. Considering he was returned back to the pound two times before we adopted him, I can say that third time was a charm for us and Brinkley.
