Video of Chris Evans reuniting with his dog is pure joy

LOS ANGELES — When work forced actor Chris Evans to be away from his best friend for 10 weeks, the superhero superstar showed his softer side.

Earlier this month, Evans started counting down the days until he could be back with his fur baby, Dodger.

Evans adopted Dodger while filming the movie “Gifted.”

“One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel. I foolishly walked in and I thought, ‘Are these actor dogs or are these real up for adoption dogs?’” Peopel quoted Evans as saying.

“And sure enough they were, so I was walking up and down the aisles and saw this one dude and he didn’t belong there. I snagged him and he’s such a good dog.”

Now Evans struggles with being separated from Dodger.

But on Sunday, the wait was finally over.

Evans got to see his beloved dog and it looks like Dodger was pretty happy to see him, too.
