Actor Chris Evans is well known as superhero Captain America, but he’s also a vocal champion of rescue, devoting myriad social media posts to his dog, Dodger, whom he rescued while filming on location. Awhile back he shared a sweet reunion, as well, having returned home from working abroad. And for National Pet Day, the actor tweeted a heartwarming video of the very moment he and Dodger met.

The caption read:

“This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello. Rescue dogs are the best dogs!! #NationalPetDay ”
