The Sea Dog Pirates were a pirate crew from East Blue captained by Ward Samuel until they were apprehended at Loguetown by Portgas D. Noir and Smoker. They are minor recurring antagonists in Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
The only named member of the Sea Dogs is the captain, Ward Samuel.
The overall strength of the crew is unknown. Based on the bounty of the captain, the crew seems to be one of the stronger crews in East Blue. However, they were no match for higher ranking Marines, as they were easily arrested by Smoker and Noir.
- 'Sea dog' has two different meanings:
