Sorry, ladies, but it looks like sexy Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is off the market.

That’s right, the Smolderhalder has found himself a girl that he can definitely take home to Mom. He posted a photo of them on Instagram on Monday, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about Nietzsche. But don’t worry, this girl is furry and has four legs and a tail.

“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,” he wrote along with the picture.

We can’t get over how cute this picture is of Ian and his new best friend. Is Nietzsche enough to fill the spot in Ian’s heart where Nina Dobrev used to be? Only time will tell, but for now Ian is head-over-heels for his canine buddy.

What do you think of Ian’s new girl? Are you totally jealous or is it too cute? Hit the comments and let us know!
