Elephants are one of the most intelligent and social animals on the planet. The video below features a story about an Asian elephant called Tarra. This elephant from Tennessee’s Elephant Sanctuary became famous on the internet for befriending a dog named Bella. Now this might not come as a big surprise, but Tarra and Bella’s story is unlike anything you have heard before.

Bella showed up at the sanctuary one day and the duo was inseparable ever since. Despite the differences between them, they did almost everything together. Tarra and Bella had been friends for around 10 years when Bella suffered a horrible back injury. She was kept indoors in the sanctuary’s office, but in the course those three weeks, Tarra visited the dog every single day. She stood near the office every time. The video below shows a touching moment where she gets to meet Bella once again. Sadly, Bella passed away in 2011 and Tarra was heartbroken. However, other elephants didn’t give up on her and stepped in to comfort her during the sad time.
