An orphaned raccoon was adopted by a family with dogs. Now it also thinks it’s a dog

Last year in the Bahamas, in the town of Nassau, Rosie Kemp found a small raccoon that fell from a tree. She couldn’t find it’s mother anywhere, so she decided to take it with her. Her small daughter, Laura was delighted that they’ve got a new friend and named it “Pumpkin”.

Finally, Pumpkin moved in with them and befriended their dogs. Rosie said: “She immediately connected with us and our two rescue dogs. She follows me and sometimes the dogs.” And her daughter added: “She now thinks that she’s a dog… she can play with them, but sometimes she has to rest.”
