The big game is finally coming up on Sunday. For some, it's not a football game it's the annual Puppy Bowl game held on Animal Planet! The game is in its 15th year and once again this year's teams will include dogs from Iowa!

Puppy Bowl features 93 puppies from 51 different shelters in the United States, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico. There are three dozen starting 'players'. Breeds in the game include everything from a Corgi, a Shar Pei, Labrador Retriever, and a German Shephard.

There are three Iowa dogs in this year's game and they all are from the AHeinz 57 Pet Rescue and Transport in DeSoto, Iowa. All three dogs have found forever homes since the special was filmed last fall. Here are your Iowa dogs to watch for on Sunday!

  • Brooklyn - A Neopolitan Mastiff, American Staffordshire terrier mix, with big droopy ears and big paws. She was just three months old when they taped the special!
  • Gallager - An 18 week old St. Bernard with a cute face and a huge frame!
  • Ziggy - This dog puts the tail in tailgate! Ziggy is 15 week old Boston Terrier who is ready to tear up the field!

This year's Puppy Bowl happens at 2 p.m. Iowa time on Animal Planet.
