Chris Evans might be known for his famous role starring as superhero and member of the Avengers Captain America, but he’s not just a hero onscreen – in the eyes of Dodger the dog, he’s a real life superhero.
Evans loves sharing photos of him and the pup on social media, but a recent video that Evans posted of Dodger for National Pet Day has made the world love both the actor and the dog even more!
Dodger had been living at a local animal shelter for a while before Evans came around to take him in. The video Evans shared shows what happened when he first met the pup. He was on location for a film shooting and hadn’t been planning to adopt, but the two fell in love with each other the moment they met!
In the video, the pup tries so hard to sit still and behave, but is clearly so excited and wants to get out of the gate. He gives Evans lots of kisses on his hands and happily basks in the pets and attention. The moment Evans saw Dodger, he knew he would be adopting him.
Evans added that rescue dogs are the best, advocating for the “adopt, don’t shop” policy. And he’s right – rescued pets are incredible and are only too happy to receive second chances at a better life. It’s no secret that Evans and Dodger are best friends, and they’re super cute together!
