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.
