Chris Evans had to apologise to his fans on the Internet after tweeting a snap of his dog with a caption that read: "Really missing this guy right now," leading people to believe that his pet pooch had passed away. The Captain America actor then clarified his comments, writing: "To be clear, he's alive and well, just thousands of miles away for the next couple months." Twitter users had a hilarious reaction to the misleading tweet, with celebrities including Seth Rogen and the popular Twitter account 'We Rate Dogs' among those to jokily scolding Chris.

I actually think the dog may be the one to save us all."

Chris opened up about adopting his pet dog in an interview with Elle magazine back in April. Speaking about taking a break from work, he said: "I took the last year off and moved home to Massachusetts. To be honest, I didn't do a whole lot. My sister has three kids. I spent a lot of time with them, just really hanging out. I got a dog a year ago. She's become a huge part of my life. I felt very normal, like a regular human. I felt like my 12-year-old self. And I was really full of a lot of joy."
