Unlike many celebrities with pets who open new Instagram accounts for their companions, Captain America, a.k.a. Chris Evans, dedicates his personal account to his. The 1 million-plus followers on his page know that it's difficult to tell who the actual owner/principal of the account is, considering he and his Boxer Mix, Dodger, have an almost equal online presence on the picture app. Since he rescued the pup while filming Gifted in 2017, they've become inseparable.

Hello Friday

In a weekend celebration, Evans posted Dodger's picture saying, "Happy Friday," although the pup didn't look enthused. The Help actress Octavia Spencer, noticed this too and highlighted it in the comment section saying, "Clearly he misses me," and asking, "Are you back?"

Another Instagram user said, "Why is Dodger always a mood? I LOVE HIM 🖤"

When Evans met Dodger at the shelter, he thought he was hired as an actor but soon discovered otherwise.

Evans also revealed that his inspiration for the name Dodger came from the classic 1988 Disney movie Oliver and Company. Essentially, the Boxer-mix shares a name with Billy Joel's voice character, who drew inspiration from Charles Dickens's Artful Dodger character from the classic book Oliver Twist. Once Evans entered the shelter to film the last scene, it was love at first sight with the pet, and they sealed their relationship with a big tattoo impression of Dodger's name on his left chest.

Dodger Got A Hip Replacement

Last year, Evans announced that Dodger underwent a hip replacement surgery and was recovering nicely. He added that the Boxer-mix's favorite stuffed toy, a Lion, also underwent surgery under his untrained hands in comic relief.

In his words,

Yesterday while he was in surgery, so was his favorite lion(which had been on IR since November after a nasty tear). I’ve never sewn anything before but I’m pretty proud of my hack job. They’re both happily recovering in each other’s company.
