Rescue raccoon believes she is a dog

A rescue raccoon believes she is a dog after being adopted by a family with two pooches.


A raccoon is convinced she is a dog after being rescued.

The Young family took Pumpkin in and raised her with their pet pooches, Toffee and Oreo, after she fell from a tree and broke her leg and now the animal believes she is also a dog.

Pumpkin was found in the Bahamas where it is legal to have raccoons as pets and she quickly became part of the family.

Daughter Laura told CBS News: "Pumpkin considers the dogs her mums.

"She respects them when they have had enough rough play and she loves to cuddle next to them when she is tired."
