Chris Evans and Olympian Aly Raisman host 'energetic' play date for their rescue dogs
Raisman introduced her new puppy Mylo to Evan’s rescue dog, Dodger during a recent quarantine play date. The canines played in the backyard, while the Captain America star ensured Dodger wasn't too rough with the much younger dog.
“Be gentle, be gentle,” Evans tells Dodger about his rambunctious little playmate. “You got a new buddy?”
Raisman can be heard cooing in the background, “So cute!”
Evans was later seen getting one-on-one time with young Milo in a second video, the latter of which found a soft spot on the Marvel superstar’s shoulder while John Parr’s “St. Elmo’s Fire” played in the background. Fans noticed the actor was wearing a cream cable knit sweater in the clip that was similar to the one he wore in Knives Out.
“Best buds @ChrisEvans,” Raisman captioned the Twitter video.
The Olympian announced the adorable blue-eyed brown dog was joining the family on Oct. 31 with a special Twitter post.
"Meet Mylo," she wrote. "I rescued Mylo yesterday from Heart of RI shelter. He was born July 16, 2020. I’m so excited to be his mom. I’ve already cried a few times because I feel so lucky. He’s currently napping on my chest. I can’t wait to get to know him."
Evans met Dodger while shooting the movie Gifted in 2015 and they've been inseparable ever since. The proud dog poppa credits his best friend as being the driving force behind him finally joining Instagram. And if that isn't enough, Evans also had the good boy's name tattooed on his chest.
