The 17th Annual Animal Planet Puppy Bowl Included The First Dogs
The 17th Puppy Bowl ended with Team Ruff defeating Team Fluff in a final score of 73-69 to win Puppy Bowl XVII.
CNN reports that Sunday’s (2/7) event featured 70 puppies from 22 different shelters. Pups were split up into two teams and placed in a canine-sized football stadium to compete for “touchdowns.” The event also featured a national anthem performance, a halftime show, play-by-play commentary and a “rufferee.”
For the past 16 events, 100% of the puppies and kittens featured were adopted.
Also featured during the event was first lady Jill Biden, who filmed a public service announcement featuring the two first dogs, Champ and Major. Major is believed to be the first shelter dog to live at the White House.
