An Anne Arundel County dog is set to make his family proud this Sunday in the second-best national event airing on cable TV.

The Patch reports King, previously named Striker, will take the field against several dozen other dogs in the Animal Planet’s 13th Puppy Bowl. He’s an 18-week-old Miniature Pinscher-Shih Tzu who will play on Team Ruff, according to Animal Planet.

King has come a long way since he was first discovered late last year behind a bowling alley in Scott County, Va. The Patch says Operation Paws for Homes in Virginia rescued him and his siblings, and that they were eventually taken in by a foster mom in Parsonsburg, Wicomico County. He was then adopted away by a family in Glen Burnie, where he lives now.

He may not look that big – and he’s not – but he could prove tenacious in the chaotic gridiron showcase, which mainly consists of puppies climbing over each other in pursuit of endless numbers of chew toys. He’ll join three other dogs that were also rescued by Operation Paws for Homes in Virginia. All 78 of the dogs playing in the Puppy Bowl are rescues.

King takes the field this Sunday at 3 p.m. on the Animal Planet.
