The world can be a cruel place sometimes, especially in the animal kingdom where survival of the fittest is law. When this baby elephant was born with an umbilical hernia that had become severely infected, his herd left him to fend for himself. He desperately tried to follow the herd and reunite with his family, but to no avail.
Luckily, some good humans — and one very special dog — were there to help!
Dogs truly have the capacity to love anybody, regardless of who or what they are. But really, how can you not love a baby elephant?
