Andre the Seal
The seal was adopted by Harry Goodridge, who was then a tree surgeon and the Harbormaster of Rockport, Maine. Harry raised the pup, hoping the seal would become his scuba diving companion, and expecting that the seal would eventually return to the wild when given the opportunity. Instead, Andre chose to stay with Harry in Rockport until his death in 1986.
