Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews’ Adorable Cane Corso and Pit Bull Have Nearly 216K Instagram Followers

If you’re into football, you’re probably aware of Patrick Mahomes. Currently the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Mahomes was responsible for the Chiefs winning their first Super Bowl in 50 years, and he’s also the youngest quarterback to be chosen as the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. If you’re the type of football fan that likes to follow players off the field as well, you may also know about his fiancée, Brittany Matthews, who Mahomes has dated since the two were in high school together. Finally, the most intense fans might know about their daughter and their dogs. But did you know that Mahomes and Matthews’ pet dogs have an Instagram account with a massive amount of followers?

On the 21st of February 2021, Mahomes and Matthews had their first child together: a baby girl named Sterling Skye Mahomes. Mahomes posted a photo of his daughter’s hand on her birthdate, but the couple waited a while before showing their daughter to the world. At the same time, they showed themselves as proud dog parents of a pit bull, Steel, and a Cane Corso, Silver. Steel and Silver helped welcome Sterling with flower crowns and pink paw prints.

According to NBC Sports, Mahomes was afraid of dogs when he was younger, but he’s since had a change of heart and become quite attached to his pets. The couple adopted Steel in 2017, and two years later adopted Silver as well. Perhaps caring for two dogs together helped Mahomes and Matthews gain some useful experience before

Steel and Silver’s Instagram account has 216k followers as of April 2021 and shows just how much Mahomes and Matthews dote on their pets. The couple has uploaded photos of the dogs flying in a private jet, decked out in Chiefs gear, and on the front of a box of Milk-Bone dog treats. That’s right — just like their sports superstar owner, Steel and Silver have gotten their own sponsorships. It’s clear why this Instagram account is so popular. The dogs are quite striking in appearance, and the photos on the account are top quality. On top of this, it’s an insight into the life of this charismatic and talented football star. Who wouldn’t want to follow such an account?

Pit bulls must be popular with football players, because Tom Brady, previously quarterback for the New England Patriots, current quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and perhaps one of the biggest names of all time in football, has his own pit bull mix named Lua. Lua was adopted by the Brady family at some point in 2014 and appears to have become beloved by both the family and Brady’s fans. The couple has two other dogs: a beagle named Scooby, and a black-and-white mixed breed named Fluffy.

Lua is the oldest, though, and seems to hold a very special place in Brady’s heart. Brady captioned a photo of Lua on Instagram with “Yes Lua, I still love you most…”, demonstrating his deep care and love for her. The couple also has two children, a son, and a daughter. Nonetheless, the Brady couple, as well as Mahomes and Matthews, have not wavered with how much they love and pamper their dogs.
