The dancer is obsessed with his new puppy EyBoi and frequently shares photos of himself (shirtless!) with the dog on Twitter. “I feel so lucky,” he wrote. “This dog is incredible. Everything I’ve taught him he’s applied within two days Genius animal!”
After he and partner Martina Navratilova were booted the first week of competition last season, the Dancing pro surprised his family with a Pekapoo puppy. “He looks at you and gauges his mood based on yours,” he told PEOPLE of dog Louie.
