Puppy Bowl XVI

Back by “pawpular” demand is Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XVI on Sunday, February 2 and the Blue Water Area Humane Society has announced one local pup has made the final roster in the adorable competition taking place on football’s biggest day. 

Blue Water Area Humane Society’s puppy, alongside dozens of other puppies from animal shelters across the country, will enter the GEICO stadium vying for the CHEWY “Lombarky” Trophy.

The special pup, Logan, was one of six brothers that were seized from a puppy mill by St. Clair County animal control. When Logan and his brothers arrived at the shelter, the boys had next to no hair and were unbelievably itchy, but after lots of love and medical treatments, the dogs were in the clear. Logan went on to be adopted to a wonderful home with his brother.

Logan will compete with other dogs representing rescues and shelters from across the country, on #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff. Dogs will represent 61 animal shelters and rescue organizations from over 25 states and with 96 adoptable puppies.

Tune in to Animal Planet at 3 p.m. before the Superbowl to catch Logan represent St. Clair County.
