Chris Evans is a dog person. He loves dogs, probably more than Lainey. Like seriously, major, major dog lover. He loves dogs so much that Dodger, the stray he adopted, is his Twitter header.
Dodger is also a frequent co-star of Evans’ Twitter posts. Here he is singing:
This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press it’s paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in. pic.twitter.com/CuH53VNVtF— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) November 7, 2017
Here they are cuddling.
Here is a moment of adulation:
Man….my dog's energy level in the morning puts me in the greatest mood. He's a beautiful, fresh, new soul so happy to be alive.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) September 14, 2016
And here is the moment they met.
In honor of #LoveYourPetDay here’s some extremely rare footage of me calling Dodger ‘Benny’. That’s the name the shelter gave him when he came in as a stray. He was there for about a month. I can’t believe no one snagged him sooner! This is our first ‘hangout’ at the shelter. pic.twitter.com/DvXXmGiSfD— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) February 20, 2019
But Evans love for doggos is too big for just Dodger. He loves them so much he often retweets dog content.
What did we do to deserve dogs? https://t.co/JbVPd3eeZ1— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) September 23, 2017
And we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed.

He even narrated a documentary about dogs.
What did we do to deserve dogs??? So honored to be a part of this. These dogs are truly amazing. https://t.co/ca9qrpn9wl— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) January 25, 2019
Because of course he did.
However, in his new movie Knives Out, Evans plays very against type. In the first trailer for this critically heralded Rian Johnson murder-mystery, we see Best Chris playing a jerk who hates dogs. They bark and jump about him, and his scowling playboy Ransom Thrombey has no time for their sweet faces or want of cuddles. How did he do it? Acting! How did Johnson and his team get dogs to act like they hate a man whose charm is so doggone delightful there’s a whole Twitter account comparing him to Golden Retrievers?
Today, Evans shared the secret. And it’s adorable.
Those dogs were amazing and so sweet! I had their toys hidden in my pockets. Nothing was more satisfying than handing them over once they yelled ‘cut’ https://t.co/hNw26ZNh9A— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) November 8, 2019
Knives Out opens November 27. And yes, the dogs are unharmed throughout.
