Lovely video of how the elderly dog, Roxy adopted the baby raccoon, Jonathan after his mom died.
They have all the affection of a mother and baby. Jonathan, a 4-month-old raccoon, lost his mom when he was just a baby, but after a loving family took him in, he quickly clung to their 10-year-old dog, Roxy.
“Roxy always wanted babies,” owner Shannon Calvert told InsideEdition.com. “Every time she sees a baby, she’s so happy, so we introduced her to Jonathan.” Immediately, Calvert said the dog took the baby raccoon under her wing.
Now, the two are inseparable.
The raccoon climbs all over Roxy and the dog doesn’t even flinch.
And it’s so sweet to see the way that Jonathon always seems to be trying to get just a little bit closer to Roxy.
