Chihuahuas are often owned by femalesSure, girls swoon over his manly physique in the Twilight saga movies, but actor Kellan Lutz just might have more bark than his bite, recently adopting a Chihuahua.

The pup, named Kevin, joins Lutz’s other dog, Kola, after wandering around Lutz’s neighborhood as a stray, according to PeoplePets.com. Lutz tried to lure Kevin and another small Chihuahua to his home in hopes of catching them to bring to a shelter.

Although the smaller dog managed to squeeze through a fence never to be seen again, Lutz decided to keep Kevin as a new addition to the family.

After a few days of staying with Lutz, Kevin was showing signs of poor dog health, refusing to eat. Lutz brought the pup to the veterinarian, where he was determined to help the dog get healthy again.

"They [the emergency veterinarians] told us he had parvo," Lutz explained to the news provider. "So I decided to get this cute pup healthy!"

Parvo is a dangerous disease that is caused by a virus attacking the gastrointestinal tract of dogs, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.ADNFCR-2720-ID-19585470-ADNFCR
