Everyone loves The Avengers, right? It's probably one of the most unifying film franchises of all time, with legions of almost absurdly loyal fans. But if there's one thing even more unifying than a superhero franchise, well, it has to be a cute dog, right?
This story combines both, so you can understand why the internet is so obsessed with it. Chris Evans, known for playing Captain America and being an all around good guy, was speaking on a panel at the ACE Comic Con in Seattle. But he was interrupted - not by a crazed fan, but by a crazily cute dog.
Showing that he's only human, Evans left the stage to interact with this cute pup. And, as you can probably imagine, Twitter has gone wild for the heart-melting vid.
American actor, Chris Evans, is known for many things.
The first of which, let's face it, is being an absolute heartthrob. Is it just us, or is he topless an inordinate amount of the time?
Just look at him.Here he is, casually pulling bits of wood apart, for your viewing pleasure. What a great guy.
He's best known for his superhero roles.And, to be fair, he's something of a superhero himself. He rose to fame playing the Human Torch in The Fantastic Four franchise.
But now, there's one role that he's best known for.Evans plays Steve Rodgers (perhaps better known as Captain America) in the Avengers franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Avengers movies are incredibly popular.But the whole of the story is based on events from the Marvel Comics - making the movies something of an adaptation. This means that they have a firm place in the hearts of comic book fans.
And the stars are welcomed at any Comic Con event.

He wasn't alone on the panel.

Images from Evans' appearance were already pretty cute.

And fans of the franchise were overjoyed.But if there's one thing that Evans seems to love more than talking Endgame and interacting with his fans and his co-stars?
Well, it has to be dogs.Evans has been open about his canine obsession in the past, saying "God, dogs, they're such great animals. I really can't say enough about dogs, I'm a dog lunatic."
We have to agree.Dogs are something that we can pretty much universally rely upon to cheer us up - and that makes them very special indeed.
And, this week, Evans proved his love.
via: Getty ImagesIn the middle of speaking, he spied a cutie in the audience - in costume, of course. So Evans did what any reasonable man would do - he leaped off stage to pet the little guy.
Fans couldn't believe their eyes.Many filmed the incredible moment to share it with the world - and, for that, we have to say "thank you!"
Just look at Evans' face.

Evans has been open about his doggy love before.

And the internet is obsessed with this story.Honestly, just when you thought that Chris Evans couldn't get any more perfect, it turns out he also loves dogs. Incredible scenes.
He's spoken about his love for his own dog many times."He's up for anything," Evans revealed about his own pet, Dodger. "He sleeps on my pillow, you wake up face-to-face."
It's clear that he's pretty besotted."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."
And now his status as a dog lover has been cemented.

The internet is clearly impressed.
@voiidmarvel The way he jumped to the stage 🥰🥰 #chrisevanshassuperserum— Jean Achilles (@Jean Achilles)1561956582.0
Although many had a pretty simple reaction.This video basically contains two of the world's cutest creatures in one - Chris Evans, and a dog dressed as a superhero.
It's no wonder thatthe internet has lost its collective mind.

Which is a pretty hard thing not to feel warm and fuzzy about.In a moment that can only be described as "pure," Evans hugs the dog, while softly saying, "hey, pal," into his ear.
Oh, and that's not the only cute thing that Evans did at Comic Con.

There is one downside, though.As one Twitter user pointed out, we'll all just have to hope that Dodger understands and that it doesn't affect their relationship.
Here's the first part of the video.
