Kellan Lutz has a new fan -- and he's likely never seen New Moon!

"I just adopted a new dog, Kevin," Lutz, 24, told at the Art of Progress event in Miami on Monday. "I found a stray on the street. He's like a little Chihuahua that all the neighbors were into."

How did the star -- who told Us that Eclipse, the upcoming third installment in the Twilight Saga, is "better than the ones before" -- find Kevin?

"I don't know why, but he just lay on the street and acted dead and all these cars drove around him," he told Us.

Next up for the star is a trip back home with his new pet.

"I'm going home to Arizona, which I only get to do once a year," he said. "So I'm taking him to Arizona, too."
