Ryan Lochte adopted a French bulldog puppy, named the puppy ‘Yeezy’


Did you know that Ryan Lochte is heading back to the Olympics this year? It’s true. Rio will be his fourth Olympic games. He’s 31 years old and he’s going to try to medal again. But Ryan Lochte – who was Gronk before Gronk – is trying to make us believe in him again. He’s trying to get us interested. He wants us on TEAM JEAH. So Ryan Lochte has adopted a small puppy. The puppy is a French bulldog. And Lochte has named him Yeezy. Yeezy Lochte. Bless. Here’s the introduction photo of Yeezy. Ryan says he named the Frenchie that because the dog liked to sit with his Yeezy shoes.

Here’s Yeezy with his big brother, Carter Lochte. Did Ryan name the big dog after Shawn Carter?

Here’s video of Yeezy in his daddy’s arms. Yeezy seems like a happy little dog.

And this has nothing to do with the dog, but I was just creeping on Lochte’s Twitter and I noticed his amazing hashtag game. #shirleytemple!!!!!!!!!

    What a cute dog.

  2. Amelia says:

    You know they say dogs take after their owners?
    That little pup with his legs all over the place and his tongue sticking out next to the shoes? If ever there was a dog to sum up Ryan Lochte – that’s the one.

    (Just to clarify, that’s meant affectionately.)

    • Erinn says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking, Amelia. It has such a sweet little derpy face. It’s endearing.

      • Sabrine says:

        What an adorable puppy! I hope he’s a responsible pet owner and doesn’t let it run around in the heat. These dogs cannot take too much of that.

    • Esmom says:

      I thought the same thing! When he said he liked to sit next to his Yeezy shoes, I was thinking aw, just like Ryan, I’m sure. 🙂

    Yeezy, lol.
    What a cute little doggy.

  4. Abigail says:

    Two cute dogs! Hurray for Carter too!

  5. wendy woo says:

    Carter’s not feelin’ it.

    He *bought a puppy. ‘Adopted’ is a term usually reserved for dogs that are rescued/rehomed.

    Cute dogs though! If he’s trying to get our attention, it’s working!!

      Thank you. One of my biggest pet-peeves.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I can’t stand that self-righteous attitude. There is nothing wrong with getting a puppy from a respectable breeder. I would choose to adopt from a shelter, because I like mixed breeds and giving a dog who needs one a home, but if someone wants a specific breed and they want to call it adoption because they are getting a new family member, that’s perfectly fine.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I NEVER use the word “bought” around my Cavaliers. They are all adopted, just like their rescue siblings. When I paid their breeder, I did not pay her to own them. I paid her to cover all the time, expenses, love, and nurturing she had provided them and which made them into wonderful, special, loving dogs.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Cavvies! Those eyes, omg, how do you ever say no to them?

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        They jolly well do not hear “no” nearly enough. One of them routinely refers to me as “the help” or her “alleged human mother” on her Facebook page too. This is life with Cavaliers.

    • laura in LA says:

      Thank you, MeaganL! This is also one of my pet peeves.

      GNAT, this is not about shaming “respectable breeders”, but even they’ll tell you that they are too few and far between. It’s about calling a spade-a-spade; buying is buying, but adopting is saving a life.

      If you saw the daily running list of cute, good, purebred young dogs and even puppies waiting in municipal shelters vs. everytime another person buys from a for-profit breeder instead, you’d die a little bit inside, too.

      Does that makes me self-righteous? Well, then so be it.

    God, I want to snuggle that puppy. I can smell his sweet little puppy breath and hear his sweet little puppy yawns and feel his sweet little puppy nips. So cute.

  8. kiki says:

    Ryan Lochte really got my attention. He’s cute, the dog Carter is cute and Yeezy the puppy is so adorable. I love it. TEAM JEAH

    • Andrea says:

      +1 Agree totally. He comes off as one of the nicest guys in sports! I hope he wins many golds!

  9. Alex says:

    Ryan’s an idiot tool but those dogs are cute.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      LOL, nicely summed up. He does seem…less than brilliant?

    • Steph O says:

      His appearance in 30 Rock is still my favorite. “This is my sex idiot!”

    • Andrea says:

      I don’t believe it – he isn’t dumb. The man is seriously athletically driven and that comes from his brain. He’s not great with words, but he has definitely got some sort of intelligences or he won’t be were he is. Not everyone is a PhD but that doesn’t make those of us without PhDs dumb. GO RYAN!

    That puppy is too damn adorable. I wanna snuggle him so bad.
