Puppy Bowl's 'Adoption Tails' Prove The Event Is About Way More Than Cuteness

On Sunday, Animal Planet aired Puppy Bowl X -- a delightfully furry tradition that this year arguably saw more excitement than the Super Bowl did.

If you tuned in, you witnessed new levels of adorableness. But you may have missed the moving adoption stories that came with each puppy.

For example, meet Arya, a pit bull who was rescued by a woman named Brielle, according to Animal Planet. She now lives with her forever family in Atlanta, Ga.


"People think [pit bulls] are people-aggressive," Brielle says in the video above. "They're not. They're very, very friendly. They love children."

Arya is just one of many "adoption tails" that came from the Puppy Bowl. To see more, visit
