Here we love an unusual but beautiful friendship, and what could be better than an elephant and a dog become best friends?
Dogs and elephants are my two favorite animals, so seeing them becoming friends is like a dream come true.
Elephants are known to be very intelligent animals and have quite good social skills. We all know dogs are adorable and friendly. So it seems only suitable when an elephant and a dog become friends.
At the Tennessee Elephant Reserve, sick and elderly female elephants have a suitable environment to roam and live for the rest of their lives. There are currently ten female elephants living in reserve, and they all have their own special fellow.
But the 35-year-old elephant Tara has an unusual friendship with someone different from the other elephants. She is best friends with the dog Bella.
The couple does everything together and really loves each other. This friendship has proven when Bella’s back is injured, and she has to rest for three weeks in a treatment center.
The elephant Tara waits for her injured special friend.
Tara couldn’t rest while seeing her friend suffer, and she refused to leave her. For three weeks, without wandering around 1800 acres, Tara stood outside the treatment center. She waited for Bella until her health improved again to go out to play.
Fortunately, after weeks of waiting, the couple were reunited. Watch the moment Bella was brought in by a best friend in the video below. Animals are really amazing!
What an amazing story about how the Tara Elephant waited for his wounded best friend to get well. Did you know of any unusual friendships between different species? We want to hear your thoughts, so feel free to leave your comments in the section below.
