This year marked the 17th year of the adorably-competitive Puppy Bowl tournament. For those of you wondering who won Puppy Bowl 2021, first and foremost, the end was as dramatic as ever with the classic come-from-behind move that led the losing team to win last minute. What was even more exciting was first lady Jill Biden's appearance during the event as she was seen with her two first dogs Champ and Major while filming a public service announcement. Catch up on last night's prosperous event.
With under a minute left, Team Ruff's Big Boss Paulie (Dutch Shepherd and American Staffordshire Terrier Mix) caught up on the act as he quickly sprinted from behind for a touchdown. Team Ruff eventually defeated their opponents with a 73-69 score. The winning team were showered with applause as the captain was decorated with a "Chewy Lombarky Trophy". The dramatic end quickly became a hot topic on Twitter as users praised both the teams and hoped that the dogs would get adopted soon. Here are some priceless tweets -
As of today, every dog and kitten that have featured in the event have been adopted. This year, 70 puppies from 22 different shelters made their presence felt and are hoping to be adopted too. While the MVP of the event may be Team Fluff's Marshall, Chunky Monkey (Chow Chow/Irish Red and White Setter Mix) and tripod dog Jett definitely stole the show, with Chunky Monkey even becoming Twitter's break-out star.
This year's tournament was hosted by Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart while Dan Schachner reprised his role as the "rufferee". The show made quite some changes this time owing to the pandemic with a venue shift to a hockey arena in upstate Glens Falls, New York. The event was also extended by 1 hour as the new hosts were introduced for the play-by-play, which is usually taken forward by actual sportscasters. Just like Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl also featured a national anthem performance and a halftime show with kittens gracing the floor. Puppy Bowl 2021 replay is available to stream on Discovery+.
