Providence Animal Center is pawsitively thrilled to announce we have a puppy player in this year’s PUPPY BOWL XIV. The cutest competition in sports history airs Sunday, February 4th at 3:00pm ET/12:00pm PT on Animal Planet.
Dragonfly, a female Beagle blend, storms the GEICO gridiron and makes the cutest ear pulls and tail tugs as part of Team Ruff as they compete to win the CHEWY.COM Lombarky Trophy.
Dragonfly was one of eight puppies born in the care of Providence Animal Center after her mom was rescued as a pregnant dog by Animal Aid USA from an overcrowded shelter in Georgia, deemed to be euthanized. In the fall, Dragonfly and her siblings were adopted out to loving homes, as was their doting mom. Dragonfly now lives in the Big Apple with her mom, who is model Justine LeGault. Dragonfly’s adopted name is Uma. Check her out on Instagram!
Dragonfly, along with 90 puppies from 48 shelters and rescues across the country, go paw-to-paw and nose-to-nose for the in the ultimate matchup between “Team Ruff” vs. “Team Fluff.”
For the last 13 year, Animal Planet’s PUPPY BOWL has owned the world’s cutest sporting event on TV. Every Super Bowl Sunday, two teams of the fluffiest and cuddliest line barkers and wide retrievers take to the gridiron for a playful game of terrier touchdown, puppy penalties and furry fumbles. Representing rescues and shelters from across the country, these adoptable or adopted four-legged players that make up #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff are serious when it comes to winning the Most Valuable Puppy title, and importantly, their forever homes.
Providence Animal Center will host a Puppy and Kitten Bowl adoption event the big weekend of Feb. 3. Stop by to adopt a new best friend, and tune in to see if Dragonfly wins the trophy!
