Keep your nose to the FW for a sneak peek at Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl line-up. 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. It's time to meet...

Leroy Brown!

Puppy Bowl VIII contender Leroy Brown


Breed(s): Chihuahua/Terrier Mix

Sex: Male

Age: 10 1/2 weeks

Cuteness Scale: 8 Awwwws

Tail wag: 125 wpms (wags per minute)

The other dogs are a little nervous about seeing this guy in the line-up. His reputation for being “meaner than a junkyard dog” has preceded him, but his camp says the rumors are untrue. Clearly, his big, sweet eyes tell the real story. He’s another Chihuahua/Terrier in the mix, which means he’ll play fair, he’ll move fast, he’ll go by the rules, but he won’t stop until he’s named the baddest dog in the whole … well, you know.
