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!

Elephant looks upset...tail is up, trying to kick dog, throwing trunk trying to hit the dog....doesn't look good.

Didn't look like love to me. It looked to me that the elephant was a bit annoyed with the dog. I think the post is wrong in its assessment of what is actually going on there. Totally misleading post.

I loved this sanctuary. No bull hooks, chains and no riding them either. They have a rescue centre for dogs too, obviously I spent time with them too, highly recommend.

It's great, isn't it? I went there last Summer.

That's annoyance, not love.

No love lost there, the elephant did not appreciate the dog one little bit.

Don't think it fell in love, think it sees it as a predator and is trying to chase it away.

This elephant looks pretty pissed off to me. This baby is doing exactly what adult elephants do when they want dogs to leave them alone.
