Chris Evans has an extremely strong bond with his Boxer-mix rescue dog, Dodger. In fact, he’s said his relationship with Dodger is “probably one of the purest” he has, and even has a tattoo in honor of the adorable pup. Since adopting Dodger in 2017, Evans has blessed the internet with tons of photos of himself and his sweet boy, and we seriously can’t get enough – especially on Aug. 26th’s International Dog Day. Dodger makes up the majority of Evans’s Instagram account, and we’re certainly not complaining about that.
Evans opened up about adopting Dodger in a 2021 Instagram post. “I was filming a movie in Savannah and the scene took place at a shelter,” he wrote. “I had no intention of rescuing a dog that day, but the minute I saw him I knew he was coming home w me.” He went on to encourage 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.”
Now that Evans has been named People’s latest Sexiest Man Alive, he and his dog have plenty to celebrate. Keep reading to learn everything we know about Dodger and see his cutest pictures — he’s such a photogenic pup!
