There appear to be stages for the new dungeon. It does seem to be providing some clarity/finality? to the story of the pet dungeons dating back to WC. Several new named tamers (comprising most of the fights).

The First Challenger: Defeat Horu Cloudwatcher in a pet battle.
Uncaged: Defeat the uncaged beast.
Futile Resistance: Defeat Therin Skysong in a pet battle.
Desperate Measures: Defeat the uncaged creatures.
They Have a New Plan: Defeat Alran Heartshade in a pet battle.
Smash it Up: Defeat Zuna Skullcrush in a pet battle.
The Final Countdown: Defeat Tasha Riley in a pet battle.
They Spent Years on That?: Battle against Pixy Wizzle and defeat their "powerful weapon".

Surprised this hadn't been posted about at all here yet. One of the recent PTR builds added more to the BRD pet dungeon. They have a whole write-up of the additions and how it works (so far). Quick notes:

-It takes place entirely in the Arena at the beginning of BRD
-It's all boss/tamer fights. No random wild pets or "trash"
-The shadowy figures from WC, DM, Gnomer and Stratholme are all present/named/not shadowy
-The rewards for completing both BRD and completing all 5 pet dungeons are toys, not pets (one makes you appear shadowy like the shadowy figures, the other allows you to control your pet for 30 seconds)
-There are 3 pets on the vendor for 1, 2 and 3 currency items, respectively (a lasher, a mech bear and a mech saber cat)

Full details along with screenshots can be found here:

Elune be praised! As fun as Deadmines is, I'd rather gnaw my own legs off than do a full instance run again.
