National Pet Day falls in the month of April and it seems like Captain America is well aware of this. Actor and celeb dog daddy, Chris Evans, took to Twitter last week to share one of his home videos of when he met his pup, Dodger.
“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,” wrote Evans in the heartfelt post.
Evans originally adopted the mixed boxer breed during the filming of Gifted.
“One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel,” Evans tells PEOPLE. “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.”
Celebs, they’re truly just like us!
