A dog named after a character from ‘Pete’s Dragon’ is inseparable from his favourite toy dragon she’s grown up with.
Elliot Mae is three-year-old Merle Great Dane named after a character from the Disney film ‘Pete’s Dragon’.
The pictures show she’s had her favourite toy dragon also named Elliott her entire life.
The amazing image set shows Elliott Mae and her favourite dragon growing up together from 2017 all the way up to 2020.
Elliot’s owner Mandy Helwege, 33 is from Denver, Colorado.
She said: “I got Elliott from a breeder in May of 2017 when she was eight-weeks-old.
”I’d dreamed of owning a Great Dane growing up and waited over 15 years to finally be able to own one.
“My Elliott was named after Elliot the Dragon, I had her name picked out shortly after she was born.
”I ordered the dragon toy off of Amazon so her breeder could use it in a photoshoot with her that I paid her to do when she was four-weeks-old.
“We have kept it with her old collars as a keepsake for close to three years.
“Elliott is full of life, energetic, loving and independent.
”She’s the best hiking partner and loves to adventure and explore the mountains we have surrounding us…maybe as much as she LOVES being in front of the camera and the center of attention.
“She’s not the brightest crayon in the box sometimes but she makes us laugh constantly and is my best friend.
”I’d often heard the phrase of people referring to one of their dogs as their ‘heart dog’ and I can’t say I understood that sentiment until Elliott came into my life.”
“We have a connection unlike anything I’ve ever experienced or even could’ve imagined the first time I laid eyes on her.”
