Chris Evans is no stranger to playing a superhero character in movies; however, the actor made his big screen persona into reality when decided to adopt a sweet shelter dog named Dodger.
Evans and his beloved dog Dodger!
The adorable pup was just like any other homeless dogs desperate to be picked up at the shelter. Now, a year later, the dog is already a big Internet celebrity as Evans continued to post updates of his beloved dog on social media.
They are clearly made for each other! Evans considers Dodger as his best friend.
The actor, who played “Captain America” in the movie, first saw Dodger at the local shelter when he was on a location to shoot a film. According to him, it was love at first sight and promised to give the dog everything he needed. Evans knew he wasn’t going anywhere without Dodger, so he decided to bring him home.
In honor of National Pet Day, Chris Evans paid homage to his beloved dog, Dodger, by sharing a video showing the instant that both of their lives changed for the better.
“This is the moment we met,” Evans tweeted. “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.”
