Chris Evans Shares the Bad Haircut He Gave His Dog

Allow the Terrible Haircut Chris Evans Gave His Dog to Serve as a Hilarious Warning to Pet Owners

Just because Chris Evans plays Captain America in the movies doesn't necessarily mean that his superpowers translate into real life! While doing an interview for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, he shamelessly explained how he recently botched his rescue dog Dodger's haircut at home, and we feel seen.

"I had done it once before, right when quarantine began," explained Chris. "I gave him just a little bit of a trim, just with a little bit of timidity. And it went great, and so I got a little confident and put on a shorter attachment, and it just exploded in my face! And I kept trying to fix it, and eventually, I was like, alright, I just gotta cut my losses." (Pun intended?)

To help people avoid making the same mistake he did, the 38-year-old actor encouraged fellow pet owners to only get out the clippers after their pup is good and tired, like right after a walk. "You gotta go with the hair," he said. "You don't go against it. But then the next time I did it, it was first thing in the morning, and he had a lot of energy, and he kept — as you're bringing the clippers down — he kept twisting his body, and the skin would crunch up." Of course, Dodger had absolutely no clue what was going on. Ah, to be a dog!

Ahead, find Chris's hilarious hack job, which proves dog parents should step away from the clippers!
