Raccoon Dogs Are A Real Animal—And The Internet Is Officially Obsessed

Although the name implies it's a dog, the Racoon Dog is most definitely not a dog. It is also not a racoon. It belongs to the canid family which includes wolves foxes, and yes, dogs, but it is not a dog. In other words, don't go looking for one to keep as a pet.


The internet has become obsessed with these adorable animals that come from East Asia and Europe. Writer, Molly Priddy posted some photos on the cute little guys, ( although she incorrectly labeled it a do) and Twitter can't get enough. With those faces we can see why.
