USA Network’s American Ninja Warrior has a new batch of competitors and we think they are the furriest, most fierce they’ve ever had!

Even though true ninjas move through the day without a trace, the USA Network’s newest version of the American Ninja Warrior competition has landed on the radar of every puppy lover around, as it features the most adorable (and furrrrocious, of course!) warriors we’ve seen.

American Ninja Warrior: Puppy vs. Puppy sadly isn’t a real new version, but they know where it’s at by sure whetting our appetite for one in the future! On their site, you can learn all about the pups of The Ruff Ruff Riders and Barking Mad teams, and see what makes them ready to be the ultimate ninja puppies.

In addition to some adorable videos, you’ll easily (and happily) kill quite a good bit of time watching the pups after the competition–running around with the spoils of their victory, and you can even go through the bios of all the players to decide who will get your support as the ultimate ninja pup!

American Ninja Warrior: Ninja vs. Ninja airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. and this fantastic puppy version is part of the USA Network’s promotion to garner some support. In the puppy version, hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila, Pancho, Preston, Remy, Laxer, Truffles and Loki compete in a mini obstacle course, and even get to dodge a baby doggy-sized Warped Wall.

But mostly, those dogs are gonna sneak right up on you and steal your heart. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so!
