Orphaned Rescued Raccoon Being Raised Alongside Two Dogs Becomes Instagram Hit

This Orphaned Baby Raccoon Is Being Happily Raised Alongside Two Dogs

An orphaned baby raccoon named Pumpkin has warmed the hearts of millions after forming an adorable friendship with two dogs.

Pumpkin was rescued last year after she fell out of a tree in Nassau, the Bahamas at only a month old. When her mother didn't return, she was taken in Laura and William Young.

The couple nursed her back to health and allowed her to stay in their home along with their dogs, Toffee and Oreo.

The pet 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."

Despite the happy ending with orphaned Pumpkin, the pair warned that raccoons aren't pets and should be left alone in their natural habitats.

The couple regularly upload pictures of the trio and their newly formed friendships on Instagram:
