Who is playing in the 2024 Puppy Bowl?


This year’s adorable list of competitors in the 2024 Puppy Bowl include Sweetpea the teeny tiny cavapoo, Levi, a 70-pound Great Dane, and Cronut the Shar Pei. There are also many disabled pups competing on the field this Super Bowl Sunday, like Moosh, a deaf Australian Shepherd mix and Mr. Bean, a Papillon mix born without front legs.

Is the Puppy Bowl live?

Unfortunately, no. The Puppy Bowl is prerecorded, and by the time you watch the game on Super Bowl Sunday, many of the precious players will have already been adopted. But that shouldn’t stop you from heading to your local animal shelter to find your own PAW-vis Kelce to adopt.
