Abandoned Baby Elephant Makes Unlikely Best Friend In German Shepherd (VIDEO)
Meet Ellie – the baby elephant rejected by its herd and rescued by the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa. He was critically ill when he arrived but after round-the-clock care from the sanctuary staff and companionship from Duma the German Shepherd dog, he is now recovering.
Ellie had an umbilical hernia which was operated on. However elephants need to be in a herd, and he was very depressed and disinterested in life.
Thankfully, Duma was there to cheer him up and play with him every day. They are now inseparable.
I love this story so much! I really hope Ellie makes a full recovery.
