Chris met Dodger during the final shoot of one of his films. He was curious as to whether the dogs on the set were “actor” dogs or actual “up-for-adoption” dogs. He unassumingly walked into the shelter and found Dodger, a cute Yorkie-Cairn-Terrier mix, staring at him with hopeful eyes.

Dodger jumped excitedly from behind the gate of his kennel, begging Chris for some love. That very moment, Chris knew that he had to take the adorable baby home! He feels that it was Dodger who chose him, and not the other way around.

Today, Dodger and Chris are an inseparable duo. He still acts like a little puppy, and is always up for games with Chris. No wonder Dodger is Chris’ favorite exercise buddy! Dodger prefers to cuddle with his dad, as it allows him to lick Dad’s face first thing when he wakes up!
