Evans originally adopted Dodger after filming a scene for his 2017 film Gifted.
“One of the last scenes we were shooting was at a pound, a kennel,” the actor told People in an interview shortly after adopting Dodger. “I stupidly walked in and thought, ‘Are they actors’ dogs or are they really foster dogs? And of course they were, so I was walking down the aisles and I saw this guy and he didn’t belong there.
He continued: “I caught him and he’s such a good dog. They aged him to about a year, he acts like a puppy, he has the energy of a puppy, he’s so adorable, he’s such a good boy. He loves dogs, he loves children, he is full of love.
A mainstay: Dodger has since become a mainstay on Captain America: The First Avenger star’s Instagram in subsequent years
Annual message: Evans shared a message on National Rescue Dog Day last year where he showed a video of the first time he adopted Dodger
Dodger has since become a mainstay on Captain America: The First Avenger star’s Instagram in subsequent years.
He shared a post on National Rescue Dog Day last year where he showed a video of when he first adopted Dodger.
As Evans approached the fence that separated him from Dodger, the dog began wagging its tail wildly before sniffing and licking the movie star’s hand.
“I had no intention of saving a dog that day, but as soon as I saw him I knew he was coming home with me,” the star wrote in the caption.
