Rescued seal pup brought to New England Aquarium

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -  A young boy and a seal pup at the New England Aquarium are now friends forever.

The 12-year-old from Alaska named the northern fur seal Chiidax when it was found left in a box in his remote fishing village.

Chiidax means "small young animal" in his native language.

The orphaned pup couldn't survive on its own and was flown here to Boston, where it's been doing very well.
