A Raccoon Was Rescued By Dogs And Thinks She Is One Of Them

About a year ago Rosie Kemp, who lives in Nassau, Bahamas, found a baby raccoon that had fallen out of a tree. The raccoon was incredibly weak and in need of medical attention.

They adopted the baby

The small, defenseless creature had suffered from a broken leg. Unable to find the raccoon’s mother, Kemp and her daughter Laura Young decided to adopt the young animal.  

She eventually recovered from her broken leg

They named her Pumpkin and nursed her back to health. “They are so unbelievably intelligent, very aware, and I would say they are even able to express emotions.” Laura said.


And she got a new family

A year has passed and she has long recovered from her wounds. She now lives with Young and her husband.

Once she moved in, she met the family of dogs



Pumpkin instantly bonded with the humans, as well as their two rescue dogs.

They got so close, she thinks she is one of them

“She now thinks she is a dog…” Young says.

They are best friends

“She is able to play and be rough with them and she respects them when they have had enough.”

They are inseparable

Pumpkin follows her human parents and her dog friends everywhere they go. She likes to nap and play with them.


She can be a handful

Young admits that “raising her…is a full-time job.”

She is very smart

Pumpkin is smart and loves to explore everything.

And she is a curious little thing

Like most babies, Pumpkin manages to get into everything.

They are also emotional

Young believes they are so intelligent that they are able to express their emotions.

Let’s hope their friendship lasts a long time

So we can get even more adorable pictures like these.
