These Tough As Nails NFL Players Have A Furry Weakness...

Even the toughest and most fearless NFL players have a soft spot - their furry companions!

They may be known for their toughness on the field, but when it comes to their dogs, they become just like the rest of us - a bundle of love and adoration.

It doesn't matter how strong or big you are, when your pup looks at you with those big puppy dog eyes, there is no defense against that cuteness.

We present to you, our favorite NFL players and their adorable doggos. It's a heartwarming reminder that even the toughest guys have a soft spot for their furry friends.

Patrick Mahomes II

The star quarterback of the reigning Super Bowl champions has a heart of gold, not only when it comes to his game but also when it comes to animals. He is a huge animal lover, and his love for dogs is undeniable! Not only does he love dogs, but he also shares his home with two precious Pit Bulls, Steel and Silver. He's been Steel's loving dad since 2017 and welcomed Silver to the family in 2019. It's amazing how he overcame his fear of dogs as a kid and now he is a proud dad of two adorable pups.

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and they are currently headed to the AFC championship. The team is a strong contender for the 2023 Super Bowl title and we're rooting for him all the way! But Kelce's love for animals doesn't stop on the field, he's also a proud dad of two adorable designer breeds, Rambo and Chauncey. Rambo is a Goldendoodle and Chauncey is a Pomsky. 

Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz is currently a quarterback for the Washington Commanders and he's also a passionate hunter. As you might expect, he has a profound love for hunting dog breeds. Wentz is also a proud dad of three adorable Golden Retrievers, and they're even social media stars. These furry friends have their own social media accounts, and we can't help but love them. Wentz's love for his hunting dog breeds is undeniable, and it's clear that they have a special place in his heart.

JJ Watt

Even though his last season in the NFL is behind him, this future Hall-of-Famer has plenty to look forward to, including his two adorable furry companions! He's the proud dad of a Golden Retriever and a Goldendoodle, Tex and Houston. It's pretty clear where he got the inspiration for their names, as he has always been open about his love for his former city.

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins is not only a quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, but also a loving and responsible dog owner. He's the proud dad of an adorable Goldendoodle named Bentley. A few years ago, Bentley was a bit of a chonker and needed to get in shape. With a regular fitness regime and a balanced diet, Cousins helped his furry friend get back to a healthy weight. Not only is he a responsible owner, but he is also a huge dog lover. Recently, he fostered seven dogs and helped them find their forever homes.

JuJu Smith-Schuster

JuJu Smith-Schuster is a wide receiver for the Kansas City Cheifs and also a proud dog dad. He's the owner of an adorable French Bulldog named Boujee, who's not just any ordinary dog, but an emotional support dog that helps Smith-Schuster get through stressful situations in life. Just like Mahomes, Smith-Schuster was also afraid of dogs when he was young, but Boujee changed his life. He's stated that he cannot go anywhere without his beloved pet. It's clear that Boujee has a special place in his heart and has helped him overcome his fear of dogs.

Ezekiel Elliot

Elliot is the proud dad of three beautiful dogs, one of which is a Rottweiler named Ace. Rottweilers make amazing pets that are not only loyal but also affectionate and loving towards their owners. They are also known for being protective of their owners and their property, which is why Elliot had a slight legal dispute after his dogs protected their home against an alleged trespasser. Elliot's lawyer argued that the person was trespassing and the dogs were simply doing what comes naturally to them - guarding their home. Rottweilers are known for their loyalty and protectiveness, and Ace is no exception.
