Tarra and Bella
Tarra, a 35-year-old Asian elephant, surprised every elephant and human at the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee, by choosing a rescued guard dog named Bella as her best friend. Since they met, these two have been inseparable. "When it's time to eat, they both eat together. They drink together. They sleep together. They play together," says Carol Buckley, the sanctuary's co-founder.
Today, Tarra and Bella are still besties. They've even added a new buddy to the mix, a 62-year-old elephant named Shirley.
