January 4, 2018 – Baltimore Humane Society is doggone thrilled to announce we have a doggie player in this year’s DOG BOWL II. Everyone’s favorite pup-to-pup competition airs during the ROAD TO PUPPY BOWL XV Saturday, February 2nd at 8pm ET/PT on Animal Planet. This one-hour special is hosted by award-winning animal advocate, Jill Rappaport.
Cheyenne is one of 63 competing in DOG BOWL, where the dogs range in ages from 2-16 years old and there are a variety of breeds and mixed breeds represented including a cocker spaniel, pug, german shepherd, basset hound, pomeranian, chihuahua, bulldog, pekingese, boxer, american eskimo and many more!
The two teams have brand new names, TEAM GOLDIES and TEAM OLDIES and they’ll compete to win the day – and your hearts.
Cheyenne (pictured left) came to the Baltimore Humane Society from an open admission municipal shelter when she was 13 years old. Luckily, she was adopted within 10 days of being pulled. Since then, Cheyenne enjoys walks, playing with her favorite toys and going for car rides.
This year’s halftime show will feature DC Humane Alliance’s ‘Barktoberfest’ with senior wiener dog races and Jill Rappaport reporting on amazing dog adoption stories.
Dog Bowl II also includes several special needs dogs including Sutty a (three-legged Pomeranian / Border Collie mix), Anneliese (a three-legged Beagle mix), Wilma(a partially blind Chihuahua), Captain Will (a one-eyed Chihuahua / Shih Tzu mix), Mr. Bojangles (a Poodle/Shih Tzu mic who is also our first wheelchair player!), Elijah (a straight-legged German Shepherd), Gizmo (a partially blind Papillon Mix) and Audrey (a deaf Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix).
The Olate performing dogs who won the seventh season of America’s Got Talent will be the featured tail-gaters as they root for their favorite team and players.
