Local Dogs Featured In Puppy Bowl XIV

Local Dogs Featured In Puppy Bowl XIV

No, not the Super Bowl, [VIDEO] the Puppy Bowl.

This year a record 90 adoptable puppies will be featured, including rescue dogs from the areas affected by natural disasters in 2017. The "athletes", all between 12 and 21 weeks old, will tackle, bite, and wrestle for toys, treats, and bones.

You can. But most will have been adopted by the time the puppy bowl airs. Penalties can result from "painter-fur-rence", "unnecessary ruffness", or anything the referee deems as unsportsmanlike conduct. The Puppy Bowl is great for drawing attention to this growing pet population problem, and this one game always helps to boost dog adoptions at this time of the year.

Houston has a big problem to tackle, with one of the highest stray populations in the country made even worse last summer after Harvey.

Of course, no championship would be complete without celebrities.
