A photo of Chris Evans' dog Dodger cheek-to-cheek with the smiling actor has caused a frenzy amongst his fans who aren’t quite sure which one of the pair is cuter. 

In an adorable selfie shared by the actor on Instagram earlier this week that he captioned with the question ‘Twins?’, Evans can be seen sporting a plain white tee shirt as he poses with his rescue pup who he adopted in April 2017 while filming the movie Gifted. 

"One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel," Evans said in an interview after adopting Dodger. "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 Boxer mix features heavily on Evans Instagram account, which is mostly taken up with snaps of his beloved boy, interspersed with the odd shot of the actor himself. And if comments on this latest photo are anything to go by, his fans don’t mind one bit.

"I don't know who is more adorable. But look at that handsome face...sorry but I gotta go with Dodger," one fan wrote, while another said, "The guy on the right is definitely the cute one. Sorry not sorry.”

Evans says he was lucky to snag Dodger, gushing about what a good boy the four-year-old is. "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."

Resisting joining Instagram until May 2020, Evans said he finally caved to the pressure. "I feel like such an old man. I'm so late to the party," he says. "You know what it is? I had too many good pictures of my dog. I was like, they're being wasted in my phone. I need to put these somewhere."
