Twilight’s Kellan Lutz and pooch Kola on the cover of Doggie Aficionado

By Kim Palacios Fans were already rich in reasons to fall in love with Kellan Lutz, and this month he’s given us another: his cover feature in this season’s issue of Doggie Aficionado. If you thought his teddy bear image was an extension of his Emmett character—or worse, just for show—the Doggie Aficionado article will quickly change your mind.

In the interview, Lutz answers all manner of question on pet parenting, including the heart-warming story of how he found his pup, Kola. Says Lutz of his trip to an animal shelter three years ago in Compton, Los Angeles, “I saw this dog hiding in the corner in the same cage as this really aggressive dog who was growling by the door. I saw a real sadness in this beautiful dog in the back of the cage and called the dog out from hiding.” Lutz goes on to recount how Kola “looked [him] in the eyes and slowly and softly licked [his] open hand…I knew she was the one.” Cue the sounds of hearts breaking as Lutz transforms from an untouchable superstar to a boy who just loves his dog.

The interview only gets better: Lutz speaks about the joys of his relationship with Kola and the challenges of keeping her happy despite his hectic schedule. Topping it off are adorable photos of a tuxedo-clad Lutz, along with Kola, playing with one of her toys.
