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!

f the dog had been, as you said aggressive, he would have been barking and trying to bite the young elephant\'s legs. The dog isn\'t exhibiting malice and neither is the elephant. Baby elephants and dogs do not play the same way. When baby elephants play, they often charge. If he truly had been annoyed, all he had to do was: rejoin the group.

Looks to me as if the elephant is practising mock charges. The dog has the behaviour of predators in at least an African elephant\'s environment, not sure about Indian elephants, but it does not look playful they way I\'ve seen the actually playl.

Haha I don't speak elephant but walking backwards away from the dog and then charging and swinging it's trunk around doesn't look like the elephants up for playing

Are you watching the same video as me? That elephant looked annoyed, not in love.

"Falls in love?" These click bait false/misleading titles are annoying.

Actually not the first time Yindee met a dog as the park has over 400 rescued dogs living there too! This dog is owned by one of the mahouts (elephant carers) Yindee and him are often playing around :-)

And I'm pretty sure Yindee still tries to kick them with a back leg. Lol.

NOT love at first sight. Dog harassing/sort of playing. Elephant not happy about it at all. Trunk swinging, charging, kicking out at dog. Pretty clear.
