There's a new girl in Ian Somerhalder's life!
The Vampire Diaries star, who split with his co-star and longtime girlfriend Nina Dobrev in May, has finally found someone to share his bed with - an adorable rescue dog named Nietzsche.
Ian, 34, is a longtime champion of animal rights causes and has even talked about opening up an animal sanctuary and dog rescue center. He has even started the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which raises awareness for animal-related causes.
And he's clearly starting his charity work right at home.
The actor posted an Instagram photo of himself with his new love this afternoon, writing, "My new girl. Rescued from traffic near the Vampire Diaries stages just a few hours ago - so smart, so beautiful & charming - all a man could ask for in a girl. So happy together. Her name is Nietzsche." Nietzsche is named after Friedrich Nietzsche, a Swiss-born philosopher.
