Doe-eyed Link is a blue heeler/Lab mix located at the Best Friends Animal Society in Houston, Tex. He's only a few months old, but apparently already has a big personality (and the quality friendships to match)! The shelter writes: "Link is a very sweet puppy who loves to play fetch and has never met a toy he didn't love! He loves holding squeaky toys and prancing around his home. He loves his foster sibling kitty Chorizo and is often found cuddling with him, sharing a bed!

Even the Puppy Bowl needs some halftime entertainment. Enter the adorable Jill. She's a fluffball, first and foremost, but the shelter describes her as a Siamese mix. She arrived at the Virginia Beach SPCA as a stray along with her brother Jack at 16 weeks of age.

This sweet little terrier girl came to Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue in Sunderland, Md., while her mama was still pregnant with a litter of pups. Another of the rescue organization's dogs—a member of Team Ruff named Tank—is leading his pack in the final round of the Puppy Bowl's most pup-ular participants. Sounds like a couple of winners to us!

This blue-eyed angel is a Turkish Angora from Citizens for Animal Protection in Houston, Tex. Entertainment Weekly shared that the kitten was found along with her siblings just days after they'd been born, with an inattentive mama cat who had left them "laying in the cold dirt with fleas all over them." As you can see from that fluffy white fur, she's doing much better now! Even better—the organization is waiving adoption fees for dogs and cats the weekend of the Puppy Bowl!

This precious pink snoot is a catahoula/Aussie mix who was surrendered to the Double J Dog Ranch in Hauser, Idaho. Esther landed at the ranch, a sanctuary and re-homing center for dogs with special needs, after her owners realized she was deaf. She's a "little firecracker" who would do well in an active household. We can't wait to see where this incredible girl makes her forever home!

This little scruff nugget may have had a very different start to life if it weren't for the kind hearts at Shaggy Dog Rescue in Houston, Texas. Not to be deterred by bigger pups in the spotlight, the Chihuahua-terrier mix is ready to wow Puppy Bowl fans with her playtime skills this Sunday.

Oh, sweet Sadie. Those eyes could get you into trouble! Especially when paired with such a complementary sweater. If you think we didn't notice that the color brings out your best asset, you were wrong. She's a terrier/schnauzer mix, but quite frankly, she's gorgeous and that's all that matters.

This little roly-poly is only five and a half weeks old. Rose's mom was pregnant when she entered the Delaware Humane Association's care, the same shelter where President Biden adopted his German shepherd, Major! Entertainment Weekly writes that the pup's mom went into labor "the day her foster picked her up and the moment she made it into the foster room, her first puppy arrived!" Rose has five other siblings that are just as cute, too!
