The dog was hesitant to go swimming – but her raccoon buddy motivates her to take a dive


As you know, we have already written beautiful stories about special friendships between animal species, which are not expected. Because, of course, it’s always amazing to see two animal species, which you would never imagine together, become the best friends in the world.

There are many examples: dogs that become friends with monkeys, elephants or even dolphins. Or a rabbit who becomes a friend with a bird. We wanted to share another of these unusual friendships with you today.

A relaxing afternoon at the pool is a great way to pass the time. Sunbathe and end the day with a delicious barbecue for example. That sounds nice to imagine. Not only for humans, but this is also true for animals.

The raccoon named Tito and the labrador named Penny know very well what we are talking about. The two animals became the best friends in the world after Tito found himself in the family. Tito was saved from a bad situation, and was adopted by this family where Penny already lived. They quickly became inseparable despite their differences.

One thing they both love is swimming. Watch them for yourself in the video below. And if you find this video fun, don’t forget to share it with your friends and family on Facebook!
