Rumble / Unreal AnimalsThese interspecies friendships is what we love most about our job here. Watching endless hours of videos with all sorts of different animals cuddling and playing in harmony warms our hearts and makes us wish we had such pets around. Seeing how even sworn natural enemies can learn to love and respect each other really makes you put a finger to your forehead and think some things through.

Now, this might not be your run of the mill friendship, but we would like to think that this rare breed of dog that looks very much like a wolf will eventually grow on to this uninvited guest.

Sparta the Northern Inuit has always wanted to befriend the neighborhood raccoon, but the trash panda has always stayed on the roof... Until today. The chubby masked bandit decided to come a bit closer today, so he perched himself on the balcony railing, right across the door, where good old Sparta was waiting.

We can see the coon wagging his tail outside and our immediate response would be that the wild animal is happy to see Sparta, but raccoons are more like cats that dogs when it comes to wagging their tail. Sorry Sparta, this guy doesn’t want to be your friend, he just wants your kibble!

Not all coons are scared of dogs though! In this adorable video, <a href="https://rumble.com/v3wl55-dawson-and-gracie-playing.html" target="_blank">the raccoon really loves to play wrestle with the dog</a>. Every coin has two sides and these two are the opposite of Sparta and her un-buddy.
