I had read of this incident somewhere years ago. I was reminded of that due to the puppy inciddnce.

It is concerning the previous births of Lord Buddha.

The story went thus : There was a fire in the jungle and all animals were running for their lives. There was this one elephant on the run too. Suddenly a rabbit came under it's feet.
Now this rabbit feeling shade, stopped there itself. The elephant saw it and thought if he put down the leg, the rabbit would die that instant.

The elephant waited on three legs for the rabbit to move away, but the rabbit stayed put.

The fire grew and the elephant died trying to save the rabbit.

The truth behind the story may be questionable, but I saw just the compassion of the elephant.
