Puppy Bowl XV: Starting lineup who's who

Which of these pups will “paw-fect” the game-winning spiral? You can be the “ruff-eree” of that.

Animal Planet’s 15th annual Puppy Bowl premieres on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. Puppy Bowl XV will feature adorable, adoptable pups from around the U.S. and Costa Rica. Per tradition, Team Fluff and Team Ruff will compete for the CHEWY.COM “Lombarky” trophy.

Among the furry lineup, some standouts include Will, a three-legged Doodle mix, Violet, who was rescued by “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and animal advocate Lisa Vanderpump, and Bumble, a blind and hearing-impaired Australian Shepherd Mix.

Get ready to meet the players participating in this year’s competition, from a pup with a “tele-pawthic” gift to a pooch who’s still trying to make “fetch” happen.

To learn more about the dogs up for adoption and to keep up with all the highlights visit AnimalPlanet.com.
