Many personalities regularly speak out for the adoption of animals living in shelters. The American actor Chris Evans, especially known for playing the superhero Captain America on the big screen, is one of them. Last year, the native of Sudbury, Massachusetts, introduced his dog Dodger to his many followers through a tweet.
Dodger was living in a shelter when Chris Evans saw him for the first time. The latter was then in full filming.
Since adopting it, Dodger has appeared on most of his Twitter posts. He holds a prominent place in his life and the artist never fails to make it known.
This year, on the occasion of the National Pet Day, celebrated on April 11th, Chris Evans posted a very special video for him: it immortalizes, indeed, the moment he meets Dodger for the first time.
The video shows Dodger wagging his tail. He knew right away” the dog was coming home with me, Evans says.

- Among the different varieties of Dachshunds, the short-haired “Smooth” is the oldest, giving rise later to the long-haired and wire-haired ones.
- The breed was brought to America in 1885 but increased in popularity in the 30 and 40s.
- Dachshunds are known for their long and low bodies.
- They come in two sizes: Standard and Miniature.
- The breed comes in three coat type:
All three coat types come in a variety of colors and marking.

- The miniature adult has a height of 5 to 6 inches and weight of 1 to 11 pounds.
- Dachshunds are active, loving dogs.
- They are typically friendly and curious by nature.
- This breed takes time to get comfortable with new people and is good as a watchdog.
- Can get whiny and depressed if left alone.
- They are good family dogs, especially if they grow up with children.
- It always important to supervise play in case your child doesn’t hold him in the right way.
- A dachshund is a hyper-alert and he has a big, deep bark, the reason why he is a superb watchdog.
While the long-haired Dachshunds do require extra care, the smooth is absolutely easy care “do not require much grooming”.
– Wiping a Smooth Dachshund down with a wet wipe or a damp washcloth can keep him looking shiny between baths.
-Require more frequent bathing.
-To remove dead fur the coat needs to be stripped two to three times per year.
Longhaired Dachshunds require regular bathing and must be blow-dried in order to look their best.
-We recommend daily brushing to keep the hair free of mats and debris.
The frequency of brushing does not depend only on the hair length. Dogs with shorter hair can also be frequent shedders.
– Nail trimming, ear cleaning, and teeth brushing need to be regular.
- Dachshund is a clever dog, but its stubborn nature can make training it a tough task.
The dog can be difficult to housebreak and requires patience.
It is generally a highly energetic dog and requires a moderate walk or a good game of fetch.

Dachshunds come in so many varieties so if you want to adopt one make sure to find one that matches your tastes, and remember in order to have a well balanced confident dog it is important to socialize him at a younger age, especially with the introduction to strangers.
With to correct training they can be excellent loyal family members, they will entertain you and provide you with a lifetime of love and cuddles.
Animal rescues from Humane Society International HSI rescued more than 170 dogs from a dog meat farm in Namyangjui in South Korea.
The dog meat farm in Namyangjui is one of 17,000 in South Korea that breed more than 2,5 million dogs a year for human consumption.
Pete Wicks, from The Only Way Is Essex English reality TV show, joined the rescue team in South Korea. He visited the slaughterhouse in Namyangju. The man was shocked when he enters these structures: “Nothing had prepared me for such a horrible vision,” he said. He remembers seeing “entire corridors of dogs shaking behind metal bars with so much despair in their eyes. ”
The dogs were suffering from eye infections, skin diseases and painful legs and paws sores from standing and sitting on wire mesh.
These dogs were flying to shelters across the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.
Days after the rescue, Pete Wicks went to London Heathrow Airport to welcome the dogs he helped save.
Among the dogs that were held there, 150 were saved through this initiative. 13 of them made the trip to London and the rest were taken to the United States and Canada.
Pete Wicks wanted to be present when they arrived at Heathrow Airport in London. Jack the Beagle, who is in the picture, Henry the Labrador Retriever, and the Crusaders Lucie, George, Tory, Rock, Bella, Chris, Adam, Mocha, Abbie, Lucy, and Leila are now 9000 km from death row. They are all going to join their new families in England soon.
