Dogs love their owners a lot, and it is not strange that we call them men's best friends. For actress and singer Julianne Hough, it is her King Charles Spaniel, Lexi, who offers support for whatever life may throw at her.

Julianne Hough is an incredible performer and dancer. Probably, you remember her as the two-time professional champion of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. In 2015, she received the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography. Recently, she played the role of Sandy on Grease: Live television special on Fox.

Her struggle with endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition that affects 1 out of 10 women in the world. Most often, it causes sharp pain in the pelvic region. Julianne has had two laparoscopic surgeries, but unfortunately, she continues to suffer from this unpleasant condition. In an interview for the Health magazine, Hough talked about her symptoms.

For me it’s an immediate sharp pain, like a stabbing sensation. It hurts so bad. It’s ongoing. But the thing that’s great about it is a few things happened: Dancing knew about it, so then I didn’t feel as guilty or bad or like I was a weak little woman, or like, Oh I need to be strong.

Lexi as a loving support

Julianne posted a photo on her Instagram that depicts her recuperation after the surgery. And, of course, by her side is her adorable dog, Lexi. Once again, dogs proved that they indeed have a therapeutic influence on humans, allowing the dancer to overcome her chronic condition.
