The Game and Fetty Wap are related ... through their dogs.
Game just dropped $5k on a male American Bully puppy from Different Breed Kennels, the same Cali breeder where Fetty Wap picked up his little girl pooch, Trap Queen.
Owner Tyrone Carter says Game and Fetty Wap's dogs are from the same litter. He says he approached Game about the pooch when they met in an L.A. strip club.
We're told the name is Makaveli ... an homage to Tupac. Game hasn't picked up the 3-month-old pup yet -- he's still prepping his house. We're guessing that means hiding his Jordans.
