Ian Somerhalder finally has a new love in his life and took to Twitter to share the good news with his followers.
The Vampire Dairies actor split from girlfriend Nina Dobrev earlier this year but has already found a replacement for the brunette beauty with a new furry friend.

"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," the actor wrote on his Instagram account.
Clearly the two have formed an instant bond with the 34-year-old accompanying a photo of the cute pup and himself along with the tweet.
According to MSN, the actor's new addition to the family came about after he rescued the dog, which was found wandering around the set of his popular TV show Vampire Diaries.
Only in April Ian, who is an avid animal lover, revealed that he is working on plans to open a centre for abused dogs.
"We're building an animal sanctuary that's also going to double as a sustainable agriculture farm and triple as a youth education camp. When a young person comes to that farm, they leave with a different understanding of compassion," he previously said.
"If you have compassion for an animal, ultimately you will have compassion for people."
We're still deciding who's cuter between the pair.
