Ruff-ness is totally necessary among this crowd of adorable rescue pups competing in the big game, airing Feb. 1 on Animal Planet

1. Pepper

This 16-week-old terrier mix is destined to be the brightest star of Animal Planet’s 11th annual furry faceoff (in which team Fluff and Ruff go head-to-head)! So the fact that a press release says the pup “can’t wait for the Star Wars movie” totally makes sense.

2. Drew Carey

Named for The Price Is Right host, this 12-week-old cocker spaniel was clearly born TV-ready (those waves are all natural, people).

3. Falcor

As you can see, the 14-week-old Clumber Spaniel has practiced so hard, he can do this stuff with his eyes closed. This is sometimes misdiagnosed as sleep-walking.

4. Cara

This 14-week-old Shih Tzu is wide open – for pass plays and/or dog treats, whichever comes first!

5. Izzy & Marley

We know what you’re thinking: “Are we about to witness a catfight of Real Housewives proportions?” Nope, just one fur pal straightening her opposing teammate’s bandana before the big game. All together now: Aww!

6. Lewis

This pint-sized Shar-Pei is fast as lightning on the field and smart as a whip off of it: Animal Planet says he can name every state capitol.

7. Roscoe & Crimson

At Puppy Bowl XI – airing Feb. 1 at 3 p.m. ET/PT on Animal Planet – dances aren’t just reserved for the end zone. With goat cheerleaders on the sidelines and Katty Furry taking the stage during the Kitty Half-time Show, there are a ton of reasons to spontaneously break it down like these two.
