A dog named Pancake has been an important part of an elephant sanctuary in Thailand ever since she was found as a stray three years ago.
"She was a stray on the beach who was picked on by other dogs," Katherine Connor, founder and CEO of Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary (BLES), told The Dodo.
When a supporter of the sanctuary found Pancake, she asked Connor if she would take the dog. "Of course I said yes!" Connor said. "Pancake has been my shadow ever since."
