Duke The Dog Bio



What’s up Dogs :)

My name is Duke The Dog, but you can call me Duke for short. I am proud and honoured to be the official mascot of the Toronto Marlies. Throughout the year, I have the PAWleasure of attending and cheering on the Toronto Marlies at every home game and at hundreds of community events across Ontario. The best part of all is that I even get to spend quality time with you, the coolest fans in hockey!

So next time your celebrating a special event, charity event or even if you just looking for a dog on fun time, make sure to email me at duke@torontomarlies.com I’m all EARS and remember fans without you, my tail would have no wag!
