Ryan Lochte shares photos, videos of adorable new puppy Yeezy

The summer games in Rio are still a couple of months away, but Team U.S.A swimmer and five-time gold medalist Ryan Lochte already has something to celebrate — a new puppy.

And it's absolutely adorable!

But Lochte's not just an animal lover — he's equally enthusiastic about shoes. So, it's no surprise that the man who owns over 130 pairs and once had his very own Speedo shoe collection was quick to put his pup with alongside a pair of his favorite sneaks — Kanye West's Adidas Yeezy Boost 350s — for a photo.

New addition to the fam...... He named himself "YEEZY" @miamifrenchies #YeezyLochte #stud

Nor is it a surprise to learn the name he gave his tiny French bulldog.

Yes, this little guy is officially called Yeezy Lochte.

It's clear Lochte's girlfriend, model Kayla Rae Reid, loves the new addition. But she's not quite as thrilled with one of the Olympian's old favorites — his beloved mouth bling.
