Los Angeles, Apr 12 (PTI) Chris Evans has shared a sweet video of the time when he first met Dodger, the dog he rescued.

The 36-year-old star took to Twitter where the Captain America actor shared the clip on National Pet Day to encourage adoption among his fans and followers.

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, Evans wrote alongside the video.

In the clip, Dodger can be seen eager to get out of its cage the moment the actor approaches him and starts licking his hand through the confines.

Evans often keeps on sharing the dog’s pictures and videos on social media.
