He may play bad boy Damon Salvatore on “The Vampire Diaries” but in real life, Ian Somerhalder’s actions prove he is way more Buffy than he is vampire.

On Monday the actor wrote, “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… Photo by the one and only @thejram”

Then, he posted this totally adorable picture on his Instagram.

Going from the streets to the home of an animal lover like Somerhalder means this pup hit the jackpot. The actor has been a longtime advocate of animal rescue and adoption.

Nietzsche will be among friends at her new house. Somerhalder already has a few rescue animals, both cat and dog, who enjoy his daily cuddles and love. Lucky guys!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
