Orphaned Raccoon Befriends Two Rescued Dogs... and Thinks She's One of Them

Pumpkin the raccoon was just one month old when she was abandoned by her mother - but one year on, and she's part of a whole new family.

After she fell from a tree in the Bahamas - leaving her with a broken hind leg - her mother didn't return and the local shelter was unable to take her. So nearby residents Laura and William Young took her in and nursed her back to health.

Within weeks, Pumpkin had formed a bond with the couple's two rescue dogs, Toffee and Oreo. The three have a ball together.

The owners told Inside Edition: "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!"

The owners added that she is very intelligent and entertaining, and loves to play with the pups.
