Elephant and Dog
Posted by Byron Movement on 2013-10-22 14:58:06.0

Bubbles and Bella are the very best of friends, and neither seems to care about their difference in size — or species.

 

The unlikely pair lives together at the Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina and can often be seen walking, playing and splashing together on the 50-acre preserve.

 

Bella and BubblesBubbles, a 32-year-old African elephant, came to the animal sanctuary in 1983 after ivory poachers left her orphaned.

 

In 2007, a contractor was hired to build a pool at the Myrtle Beach Safari, and when he abandoned his black Labrador at the preserve, Bubbles and the dog formed a bond.
