Dog Bowl III Preview
Sixty-four dogs are competing in the Dog Bowl III, Animal Planet shared. The only requirement to compete in this competition is that the adult dog must be a rescue dog. Other than that, there is no breed, age, or size restriction, 1067 The Eagle reported. Some animals are special needs, but all are special rescues.
You can see the full lineup here for today. The dogs range in age from 3 to 14 and are on two teams: Team Oldies and Team Goldies. The dogs hail from 32 rescues. They’ve been training and getting ready for the big game and are ready to run to the end zone with their plush toys. It’ll be a great night for dog fans everywhere.
Here’s a sneak peek at Mack, who represents Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary and will be competing tonight.
Animal Planet describes the Dog Bowl this way: “(A) furry football competition created for adult dogs living in rescues and shelters who are frequently passed over for their younger counterparts. … The one-hour special will feature all adoptable adult dogs in need of their forever homes.”
According to Animal Planet, Dog Bowl works with shelters and rescues to fill their rosters for the big day, where dogs go “nose-to-nose for touchdowns, furry fumbles, and ultimately the win.” The goal is to promote adoption so adult dogs can find their forever (or “furever”) homes too.
