Orphaned Raccoon Rescued By Family With Dogs Thinks She’s A Dog, Too

We all love those fuzzy heart-warming stories about dogs who adopt other animals as their babies when they are in need.  Well, Pumpkin the raccoon is here to give you another one!  Found with a broken leg and abandoned at the base of a tree, Rosie Kemp and her daughter brought this baby animal into their home to nurse it back to health.  This adorable creature bonded with their own dogs and soon she was a member of the family.  Kemp says that, while she is a handful, she is intelligent and thinks she’s a dog, acting like the animals around her and playing just like a dog would.  She is now a beloved member of the family and they can’t imagine their life without this adorable raccoon.  It proves that love knows no bounds!
