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. It's time to meet....


Puppy Bowl VIII contender Aberdeen


Breed(s): Australian Shepherd Mix

Sex: Male

Age: 10 weeks

Cuteness scale: 9 Awws

Tail wag: 188 wpms (wags per minute)

With his Australian Shepherd background, Aberdeen has a reputation as a team player with a lot of energy who excels at competition. He’s hoping he can distract his opponents with his fluff and lull them into a false sense of security with his friendly nature. Once he’s fluffed and friended them, he plans to grab that ball and take it all the way.

Come back tomorrow for a look at a new Puppy Bowl contender! And don't forget to watch the Puppy Bowl, February 5th at 3pm on Animal Planet.
