Imagine a world where raccoons were domesticated instead of wolves and we got the raccoon equivalent of a dog

Note that this was done in a relatively short time with foxes, see the Domesticated Silver Fox en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic

They had to kill a lot of foxes to "evolve" them in such a short period of time though..
