Chris Evans and his rescue dog, Dodger, are inseparable.
But it was fate that led them to each other.
The doting dad took to Instagram to honor his best friend for National Rescue Dog Day.
On Thursday, Evans posted a video of the first time he met his beloved dog at the shelter.
He wrote, “This is the moment I met Dodger. I was filming a movie in Savannah and the scene took place at a shelter. I had no intention of rescuing a dog that day, but the minute I saw him I knew he was coming home w me.”
It was love at first sight.
In the video, the cute pup came up wagging his tail to Evans and licked his hand. The two locked eyes and it was the start of a great love story.
Evans adopted Dodger in 2017 while filming Gifted.

The Captain America star has over 10 million followers on Instagram and many are thanks to his adorable rescue dog.
Dodger loves to cuddle on the couch and hog the bed, but Evans doesn’t mind. He’s a total “sucker” and will do anything for his sweet dog.
“Sometimes he uses my hand as a headrest knowing full well that I’ll stay there until he’s ready to get up,” shared Evans.
Dogs are a constant source of entertainment and the most loyal friend you will ever have.
Evans couldn’t imagine life without Dodger and encourages his fans to adopt. “There are so many loving animals at shelters who are in desperate need of a home. Visit a shelter and leave with a best friend.”
