I hope they kept the receipt for that Coonhound.
Most people will tell you that keeping a rescued raccoon as a pet is a bad idea. But if you're going to welcome one into your home, it's a good idea to have some backup in the form of a Coonhound. This one's name is Rock, and it's hard to tell if he's good at being a Coonhound or terrible at it. Technically, his job is just to track raccoons. Even if Rock doesn't have the heart to kill it, he should at least be able to beat him at wrestling.
Maybe his bloodline has been specifically bred to make friends with and occupy critters until the family decides if they're going to to skin it, or name him Ringo and fix him a bed. Either way, it seems to be working out, as Rock and Ringo clearly have a good thing going.
