Chris Evans Shares Moment He Saw His Beloved Shelter Dog For 1st Time.

chris evans meets dodger

Friends, love at first sight does exist, and we have proof.

Captain America himself, aka actor Chris Evans, shared a very special video to his Twitter feed in honor of National Pet Day. Chris is an advocate for many charitable causes, but one that’s especially near and dear to the Cap’s heart is pet adoption. To draw attention to the many pets who live in shelters, waiting for their forever homes, Chris shared the moment he met his best canine friend, Dodger.


“This is the moment we met,” Chris captioned the video. “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!!”


In the video, you can hear Chris making sweet, soothing noises as he reaches through the cage to pet Dodger for the first time. The little dog can’t stop wagging his tail. He’s so excited to see Chris, it’s almost as if he knew that he was meant to go home to live with him forever.

This was just the beginning of a beautiful love story. Chris doesn’t post pictures on Twitter very often, but when he does, they’re almost always of Dodger.


In fact, when Chris is away, shooting on location, he literally counts the days until he can return home to see his dog.


His Twitter feed is a love letter to Dodger. They seem to do everything together; playing, singing, and even working on the computer.

Although Dodger would prefer that he stop working and go outside with him, instead.


Dodger is definitely looking a lot healthier and happier these days. He sure cleans up well, doesn’t he?



These two make our hearts sing with happiness! This is what makes pet adoption such a blessing for all involved.

Oh, and who else wouldn’t mind getting adopted by this guy?


Not too shabby, Dodger! You won the doggy adoption jackpot!

Then again, it seems that Chris won big, too.


We literally can’t handle how cute these two are together. Doesn’t it make you want to rush to your local animal shelter to find your very own Dodger? If so, then Chris accomplished his goal with the tweet. Don’t shop, adopt!

Watch the emotional moment when Chris and Dodger first met below, and don’t forget to share this message of love and joy far and wide.
