The Puppy Bowl is something a lot of pet owners look forward to during the Super Bowl. This year, Animal Planet will be holding the annual event once again with its 13th iteration of the event, Puppy Bowl XIII on February 5th, while Super Bowl LI is in progress. The 360 VR video above shows the cute little puppies in a small football field where they are welcomed by a bunch of toys.
The puppies will be divided in to two teams where Team Fluff takes on Team Ruff for the coveted Lombarky Trophy. All of this effort by Animal Planet is to find some of these puppies a new home. These dogs all have unique stories and reasons why they’re featured in this year’s Puppy Bowl
