Nina Dobrev has an emotional support dog. The actress, who stars in the upcoming film ‘Flatliners’ was spotted with her pup Maverick while she was out and about in New York City over the weekend.
Eyewitnesses say that Nina looked both happy and relaxed while she was running errands in the Big Apple with her emotional support dog. Nina introduced her rescue pup Maverick back in April. She’s been spotted with the dog everywhere in the last few months, making it pretty clear that she needs him by her side.
A lot of her fans can’t help but wonder why she would have an emotional support dog to begin with. One theory is that Nina might be struggling to cope with the pressure to become a huge star in Hollywood. She’s made it no secret that she’s looking to transition from television to big screen work. Plus, Nina wants to be an A-list action movie star. The only way she’ll be able to achieve her goal is if she remains determined and focused on what she wants.
For many of Nina’s fans though, they are not surprised that she’s taking the right steps to make sure she stays sane in the industry. After all, Nina is young, she’s beautiful and she’s in her prime as far as her career is concerned. And she wants to keep it that way. Even though she has plenty of friends like Julianne Hough that she can rely on, it’s not enough.
Many emotional support dogs provide the kind of affection and companionship that people like Nina look for. Plus, they also help individuals who suffer from mental and emotional conditions. And clearly, that’s what Nina wants to avoid. The last thing she wants to do is make headlines for drinking in clubs or acting erratically in public like many other celebrities out there.
Nina has been in this business long enough to know that the pressures of fame can get to just about anyone. Plus, Nina wants to work in the entertainment industry for years to come. She doesn’t want to become another forgettable television actress. That’s why she’s taking care of both her mind and her body. She doesn’t want to end up like some actors in the industry who end up making the wrong decisions at the worst times.
