The Boston native has owned the canine for four-and-a-half years, as he adopted the dog amid production on his movie Gifted in April of 2017. Speaking to People that month, the A-list actor explained the circumstances unto which he came upon adopting Dodger.
‘One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel,’ Evans told the outlet. ‘I foolishly walked in and I thought, “Are these actor dogs or are these real up for adoption dogs?” 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.’
The Knives Out star continued: ‘I snagged him and he’s such a good dog. They aged him at about one, he acts like a puppy, he’s got the energy of a puppy, he’s just such a sweetheart, he’s such a good boy. He loves dogs, he loves kids, he’s full of love.’
Evans said that his time with the dog proved to be ‘exhausting,’ as ‘playing with him is exercise’ and ‘he’s up for anything.’
