The video below features a pair of unlikely friends that have managed to form an incredible bond amongst themselves. The rescuers call the tiny elephant “baby Ellie” and he lives in an orphanage in South Africa. Most animals that are the victims of poaching are often accepted and cared for by their herd – but this was not the case for baby Ellie.

When Ellie was found and brought to the vet, they discovered that he was suffering from a serious condition that affected the blood supply in his body. It looked like he would not make it.

His health was improving, but life was still lonely for the little one. But that’s when Duma, a former sniffer dog, came into his life.
