This saved raccoon shares home with two dogs and believes she is a dog too!

A year ago a tiny fluffy coon dropped from a tree onto Rosie Camp’s head, a girl from Nassau, Bahamas. The cute baby animal was only a month old then and one of its rear legs was broken.


It was clear that the mother wouldn’t be back for the injured cub and Rosie made a brave decision to adopt the poor thing.

Now the funny and clever coon by the name of Pumpkin lives together with Rosie’s two pet dogs and seems to be perfectly happy! Pumpkin has become attached to all the family members and follows her mistress and two dogs everywhere.

Rosie says the coon really thinks herself to be a dog: she very often behaves like a dog and even tries to become a leader of the other two pets.

I had a pet racoon, he was great and we had a lot of fun. At 5 years of age he went wild though, no one told me I should have had him fixed to prevent that. When I took him for walks on his leash people would say "what is that"well I figured if they were to dumb to recognize a racoon, I'd give them an answer. Masked ringtaled spaniel

We have "Millions" (or so it seems) of 'coons where I live, I can tell by the amount of "Road Kill" along with the "Bumper Crop" of road kill Deer. Racoons aren't bad, it's just the Thumb thingy that gets to me.

They "LOVE WITHOUT BORDERS" because they aren't sentenant beings and do not realize there are different Nationalities and traditions that come along with them.

Had a raccoon as a pet when I was a child. His name was Pat and when he was young he was a good pet but when he got older he became mean and we had to get rid of him.
