Puppy Bowl 2017

Puppy Bowl 2017 Photos: Meet the Adorable, Adoptable Starting Lineup

Hours before the Falcons sink their talons into the Patriots at Super Bowl LI, another type of ferocious beast will be leaving its mark on the field.

Puppy Bowl XIII is set to kick off at 3/2c on Animal Planet, once again pitting longtime rivals Team Ruff and Team Fluff against one another for bragging rights — and, hopefully, a few adoptions along the way. (Information about adopting dogs, including some featured in this year’s game, can be found here.)

But you don’t have to wait for the game to get up close and personal with this year’s starting lineup; all of the players (including my personal favorite, a Pug/Shih Tzu mix named Wilma!) can be seen in our Puppy Bowl gallery.

This year’s halftime performer is none other than controversial songstress Kitty Gaga, who’s taking the field with The Rock Cats for what I imagine will be an unforgettable — and likely provocative — performance. Here’s an early taste of the musical action:

    Love the puppy bowl,l gets better every year. This year I especially like “Kitty GAGA”

  6. Team Fluff looked good this year, that extra training really paid off. Though Nikita looked good scouring 3 TD’S and one field goal, using the refs flag should have been a penalty.

    I would adopt 2 or 10 of these adorable sweethearts if I wouldn’t have to get a dog sitter for them while I’m off dog sitting for any one of my dog sitting clients.

    I really enjoy the puppy bowl but this year there is way too much talking and replay
    I want to see them playing not so much jump around from the couch. I hope it will not stay like this.
