Pumpkin the Raccoon

About Pumpkin the Raccoon

The orphan that thinks she’s just one of the dogs, Pumpkin the Raccoon has captivated the internet with her charm and unique adaptation. Abandoned with a broken leg after falling from a tree, the Bahamian cub was nursed back to health and forged an instant bond with the caring family and their two rescue dogs. Pumpkin’s acclimation to a life of comfort, play, cuddle, and canine companionship has accorded her affection and celebrity, with 1M+ Instagram fans, a hardcover illustrated book, wall calendar, and top billing in a 2016 Vanity Fair profile piece including pets of designers Karl Lagerfeld and Marc Jacobs.
