Maple Leafs Introduce Team Dog ‘BUD’ During Next-Gen Game Against Flyers

The service dog in training will be a member of the team until he’s ready to go to a person in need.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have an official team dog.

The club introduced ‘BUD’, during Toronto’s 4-3 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.

During the introduction, many members of the Leafs were seen greeting their newest teammate.

Many different members of the Leafs have their own dogs and they have been useful in helping the players unwind away from the rink, but this is the first time Toronto has had a dog that belongs to the team.

More information on BUD, including breed and how he has come to join the team as it develops…
