Critically ill, with umbilical cord infection and intolerant to any kind of milk, this baby elephant had no chance surviving in the wild. And so his herd rejected him. When he was found, Ellie was perishing, in pain, both physically and mentally and his rescuers struggled to find anything that would make him happy again. Several attempts to reunite him with his herd have failed, but when they thought there was nothing to be done, one dog changed everything.
For the moment this baby met his surrogate brother, they’ve been inseparable and watching them play is the most incredible thing ever. An elephant and a canine, even though they behave differently, somehow they managed to make it work.
