Ian Somerhalder is one seriously AH-mazing guy.
He's smart, sexy, funny, talented and cares a whole hell of a lot!
He cares so much, he started his own foundation: The Ian Somerhalder Foundation!
The IS Foundation "aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures."
He's all about conservation, green energy, education/awareness, animals and all sorts of other good causes!
He recently spoke about his foundation to Icon magazine's 2013 men's issue, saying:
Ian Somerhalder has the cutest doggy ever named Nietzsche, and boy, does he loves his pup sooooooo much!
Well he better get ready to spread that love around… because his doggy is about to have some pups!!
He posted an adorbz pic (above) of himself, his piercing blue eyes, and Nietzsche, saying:
"Im a GRANDPA! Am I too young???My Nietzsche with a little belly full babies-about to reek havoc in our house…"
Awww! His doggy is pregnant and he's loving it! And look how he's holding his dog's belly! He's truly proud! If only he'd hold us like that! Ha!
Can't wait to get updates and see all the little pupsters once they're born!

Ian Somerhalder is a seriously caring, seriously delicious hunk of man meat.
He cares a heck of a lot about tons of things, but one thing he truly loves are animals.
After hearing about a girl who threatened to kill her dog, he was obviously upset.
She even posted pictures of her strangling a dog!! Though they turned out to be faked.
In response, he said:
This is just so AH-mazing!
We previously mentioned Nina posted a pic of her cutie kitty… well Ian did the same but with his 'dorable doggy!
He Instagrammed a pic (above) and wrote:
"Pls send some positive vibes for my little girl, Nietzsche who goes under the knife to be Spayed in a few minutes!STOP OVERPOPULATION-SPAY AND NEUTER Thank you!"
Aww! Good luck, Nietzsche!
What's great is Nina also tweeted out her support, saying:
Ian Somerhalder, our fave smokin' hot vampire from CW's The Vampire Diaries, was vamping it up at Comic-Con over the weekend.
While there, we're sure he was mobbed by fans whilst also enjoying himself…hanging out with giant robots and costumed heroes, and all that good stuff!
All of that seems fun and ahmayzing, but our favorite moment is when Ian got some kisses from a super cute fan!
A super cute, furry little fan! It was a little doggy named Copper!
Copper was sitting on motorcycle, like the badass cutie he is, and Ian just couldn't resist going over for a quick make out sesh. LOLz!
They are one CUUUTE couple! That's one lucky dog!!
