Puppy Bowl Contender To Watch — Abilene [PHOTO]

Ready for the big game? Of course we’re referring to The Puppy Bowl! Recently, we offered a sneak peek at Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl starting line-up. Now we’re giving you a closer look at each contender.

The pups have been chosen and are working on their game already. Every one of them is hoping to chew up the competition, or at least a squeaky toy or two. But who will take the title of puppy champ? We’ve got stats and odds on each of the contenders.

It’s time to meet….


Puppy Bowl VIII contender Abilene
Animal Planet


Breed(s): Australian Shepherd Mix

Sex: Female

Age: 10 weeks

Cuteness Scale: 10 Awwws

Tail wag: 138 wpms (wags per minute)

Abilene plans to prove it’s possible to be endearingly sweet and a tough competitor at the same time. Because she’s a highly trainable Australian Shepherd, she already knows all the plays by heart and has been watching film of the other dogs for weeks to learn their weaknesses and chew toy preferences. She’s full of energy and the drive it takes to hit those yards hard and wag the ball home.

Don’t forget to watch the Puppy Bowl, February 5th at 3pm on Animal Planet.
