brain damage would suggest head trauma, like a fall or something. if he were inbred, the walking in circles would imply he's mentally handicapped. which isn't anything to get upset about right now, it just means you're going to need a lot of patience w/training and what not. take it slow and use a lot of positive association for everything. no reprimands, lots of socialization. but your vet will probably want to do some tests to make sure it's not a trauma of some kind.
