I have found my next pet!

Raccoon Dog

This animal may look like a raccoon with long legs, but it’s actually not closely related to raccoons. Racoon dogs belong to the canid family, which also includes dogs, wolves, and foxes. These interesting-looking animals have been around for millions of years.

My apologies as I didn't believe you so I looked it up:

The raccoon dog, also known as the mangut, tanuki or neoguri, is a canid indigenous to East Asia. It is the only extant species in the genus Nyctereutes. Despite its name, its closest relatives are the true foxes, and not the American raccoons.
[@423488,curiosi] haha that's why I post these obscure facts and yes it does state that it really is more a part of the canine family.
