The baby raccoons who had lost their mommy had taken refuge in the backyard of a house in Canada. That had been the turning point of their lives. The three raccoon babies namely Rain, Storm, and Hailey were taken in by the family. Then at first, they had hand-fed them but later had thought that their pit bull Ashlyn would be a good mom to them.

Hoping so they had introduced them to Ashlyn. At first, even she had not been so sure of how to be a good mom but later things have changed. Her motherly love had filled the hearts of the babies raccoons and they are now happy with her. Even Ashlyn’s human mom Katie has shared on Instagram that at first Ashlyn had not been sure but later they had got along. She had loved the babies thinking of them as her own puppies.

They might be well adapted to Ashlyn now but still, they belong to the wild. Therefore they would be sent to the wild soon. Katie had said on a video shared by The Dodo on Facebook that they would teach the raccoons the skills they need to survive in the wild. Thanks to Katie and Ashlyn the babies are safe and happy.
