Chris Evans' Adorable Reunion With His Dog After Months Apart Will Warm Your Heart

"This is the purest thing I've ever seen."

The internet had major heart eyes on Sunday when Chris Evans tweeted a positively precious video of himself and his dog Dodger reuniting "after 10 long weeks" apart.

According to E! News, Evans had to be away from his furry friend this summer for work, and has been posting frequently about how much he misses him. In fact, one such tweet, in which Evans posted a photo of Dodger and wrote that he was "missing this guy," worried fans into thinking the pup had passed away. But the actor assured them he was "alive and well, just thousands of miles away for the next couple months."


Those couple months came to a close this weekend, when Evans and Dodger had their happy reunion. In the Twitter clip, Evans lies on the floor laughing as his pal excitedly licks his BFF's face and wags his tail. It may only be 14 seconds long but you're sure to watch it a few times.

Twitter obviously fell head over heels for the video, with one user calling it "the purest thing I've ever seen," and another counting it as a "reason to live." As of this writing, the video has received 87,000 retweets and more than 300,000 likes.

Even the popular account We Rate Dogs responded to clip, declaring that 10 weeks is "like 700,000 dog minutes." It's a good thing they're back together, then.

Evans told People earlier this year that he adopted Dodger while filming in a pound for his film Gifted, and he couldn't stop gushing about his new friend.

"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," Evans told the magazine. "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."
