Elephants are adorably quirky and extremely smart. They can use tools, imitate and understand human speech (to an extent), and have even been shown to practice complex principles like altruism and generosity. Baby elephants are even more gifted than their older kin in the quirkiness department – they are insatiably playful and have unlimited energy!

If there’s any animal that can match them in the playfulness department, it’s dogs. Put the two together and you have the makings of a fantastic friendship.

The video shows Yindee the rescued elephant’s first time meeting a dog. You’d expect her to be a little afraid, but she jumps up and starts playing with the dog right away. The video is only a few minutes long, but I’d bet that the two were inseparable for the rest of the day.

Yindee is one of the residents of Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for orphaned or formerly abused elephants that allows their animals access to wide open spaces and plenty of sunshine.

Enjoy your play time, friends!

Looks like she's trying to hunt the dog away & also trying to kick back at the lady that's going behind her, not a wise move! Poor baby being put through this trauma after getting rescued, most likely she's already been through something horriffic before her rescue.

You have got to be kidding!!! This does NOT look like love at first sight. The baby elephant is trying to kick the dog and running away from it. Nothing cute about this!

We have sheep. If a dog was behaving like this with them we would say it was "worrying the sheep" not good. Also I notice the little elephants back leg going out a few times ..Classic in trying to kick something out if the way. Sorry not convinced by this one!

Glenn Bennett thanks. The elephant looks harassed to me. Keep the dogs away and let the elephants be elephants.

who is the idiot that wrote the title to this video? "Falls in Love" ??? you must be joking; the elephant is playing and the dog would like to but he's scared stiff. They are simply gauging each other, love has absolutely nothing to do with this behaviour. Pls stop thinking that viewers are stupid.
