Hollywood actor Chris Evans is more than just a hero on the big screen. “Captain America” also played hero a real life hero when he adopted Dodger – his adorable rescue dog.
On last Wednesday ― National Pet Day ― Evans shared a video of when he and Dodger first met. Evans had shared a lot of tweets, pictures, GIFs and videos of him and Dodger before, but this video was obviously something special, since he posted it only now.
The video’s caption read:
“This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello. Rescue dogs are the best dogs!! #NationalPetDay”
Evans met Dodger when he was filming his movie “Gifted”, because the movie needed a canine co-star alongside Evans.
“One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel. I foolishly walked in and I thought, ‘Are these actor dogs or are these real up for adoption dogs?’ And sure enough they were, so I was walking up and down the aisles and saw this one dude and he didn’t belong there. I snagged him and he’s such a good dog. They aged him at about one, he acts like a puppy, he’s got the energy of a puppy, he’s just such a sweetheart, he’s such a good boy. He loves dogs, he loves kids, he’s full of love.”
Here are some of the other stories the two Hollywood co-stars have shared since they first met:
Nov 8, 2017: “This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press its paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in.”
Aug 25, 2017: “The dangers of playing with your food. One more week. Also yes, I was watching Kindergarten Cop.”
Jul 15, 2017: “’Excuse me, are u busy? Could I interest u in chasing squirrels with me outside? Or perhaps u could toss the frisbee? I have no plans today’”
