Steel and Silver are becoming celebrities in their own right; the pups Instagram page, @steel_silver_mahomes, already has 200,000 Instagram followers (and counting)!

During an Instagram Live interview with former Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu, Mahomes confessed that Steel is his "spirit animal." The KC quarterback said, "Honestly my chosen spirit animal is my dog Steel, because me and my dog Steel are exactly the same person, except he's a dog. His mannerisms, like the stuff he does, is literally exactly the same as me."
