Special needs dogs starring in Puppy Bowl will melt your heart

By Sean Dowling, Buzz60

If your team doesn't win the Super Bowl, it can be a real heartbreaker.

But here to win the hearts of people across America are the 78 puppies "competing" in the 13th annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet; airing February 5th.

Something notable about this year's game.

Three special-needs players will be featured, including the three-legged dog.

Her front right leg was amputated after a horrific accident, but she's not going to let it stop her from trying to score a few touchdowns.

Next on the roster is Winston, who has hearing and vision impairments, but has a sixth sense for the end zone, according to the Puppy Bowl announcer.

Rounding out the list is Doobert, who's deaf.

Each of the 78 adoptable dogs is split up into two teams; Ruff and Fluff.

The dogs represent 34 rescue organizations across 22 states.

Since the show was taped in October, several dogs have already been adopted, which is the ultimate touchdown for the event organizers.

With so many dogs, you can be sure there will be plenty of people on hand to pick up any two point conversions if you know what I mean.
