Recently, Nayte took the time to appreciate his dog with a post dedicated to him.

Nayte and Percy posed for several smiley photos together in the sweet post.

Nayte’s Bachelor Nation friends also reacted to the post and expressed being fans of Percy.

Nayte Olukoya was at the center of Bachelor Nation dating rumors after split from Michelle Young 

Not too long after Nayte and Michell confirmed their breakup, rumors began to swirl that Nayte had quickly moved on to a new Bachelor Nation lady.

Fans began to notice Nayte at many of the same locations as Deandra Kanu from The Bachelor Season 24 and Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 star. 

Deandra was in attendance at Nayte’s birthday party, they appeared to also party on the same boat with fellow Bachelor Nation stars, and a video saw the two looking cozy on a couch during a night out. 

While there has been much speculation about Nayte and Deandra, sources have declared that their relationship and jewelry sharing are platonic. Nayte has also spoken out to clear up rumors that he may have allegedly cheated on Michelle. 

Nayte denounced cheating accusations and expressed he’s a good guy. 

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
