Baby Elephant Forms Unlikely Bond with German Shepherd

Earth Touch News reports on the touching story of how a rescued baby elephant named Ubuntu (Ellie for short) developed a special friendship with a German shepherd named Duma.

“Everyone loves a canine companion, and this baby elephant is no exception! The tiny pachyderm arrived at the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa after being rejected by his herd. Critically ill, the youngster had very little chance of survival. But thanks to round-the-clock care from sanctuary staff, and a bit of help from a special canine companion, the baby elephant is on the road to a full recovery.”
