Lopez, 33, told ABC News she spoils her dog, which she got in 2015, so much because he helped her get over a devastating breakup. The British Columbia, Canada, woman had split with her boyfriend of eight years one year before.
"I was going through a very bad depression," she explained. "I wanted a dog. I wanted company."
Thanks to Diesel, Lopez said her entire life has changed and she's in a much better place. "I'm happy," she added.
