The fluffiest and, dare we say, best sporting event all year just announced their roster. Seventy-eight different puppies from thirty-four shelters across America will be either a part of Team Ruff or Team Fluff in Puppy Bowl 2017. However, this year holds a first in Puppy Bowl history. Three adorable puppies joining the line up have special needs.

Lucky, a Terrier mix might only have three legs, but don’t let that fool you! He’s fast, strong, and determined to win.

Winston, an Australian Shepherd, is sight and hearing impaired. However, he will sniff out those treats and toys in order to score.

Doober, an English Pointer, is deaf, but has an eagle-eye to see a pass.

The rest of the puppies can be seen on Who will bark their way to glory and extra treats? Find out Sunday, February 5 from 3-5 PM ET/PT on Animal Planet!
