(WFSB) – In nearly a month, the annual Puppy Bowl takes place, and a handful of lucky dogs from Connecticut made the team.

The adorable lineup this year is made up of puppies from several local rescues.

Playing for ‘Team Ruff’ is:

  • Sweet Lulu, a Shih Tzu, Pomeranian mix form Pack Leads Rescue of CT in East Hartford.
  • Scout, a Pitbull, Norwegian Elkhound mix from Paws CT in Norwalk
  • Luna, a beagle basset hound mix from the Danbury Animal Welfare Society

The opposing team, ‘Team Fluff’ features:

  • Sky, a cattle dog, golden retriever mix from Roar Animal Rescue in Ridgefield

These dogs are joining the roster of rescues from around the country who are looking to score their forever home.

This year’s Puppy Bowl will feature 118 adoptable dogs that have been drafted from 67 shelters and rescues across 33 different states.

You can catch the action between ‘Team Ruff’ and ‘Team Fluff’ on Sunday, February 13th at 2:00pm on Discovery+ and Animal Planet.
