    From an ex boyfriend. He is an arctic x red fox. I ended up developing allergies to him though so my mother has him now. Spoiled and fat

    That is so cool! Are they easily domesticated? We have one in our neighborhood that I've seen maybe once a year, and every time I do, I slam on the brakes and stare until it runs away, ha ha!

    Ok. Got him from a girl who purchased him from a breeder (yes people breed foxes of all types). He was harder to work with then most 'house' foxes as he was older and had been neglected. The best thing to do if you want a fox is to get one from a breeder that does what they call bottle babies. Those are domestic home bred foxes that are handled from birth and bottle fed along with being with mom. They usually sell them to you when they are on a mix of real food and the bottle that way they bond with you.

    Wow! That is beyond cool! We had a litter of red foxes several years ago take up residence at our farm. They hung around my house at night and the young ones would play on the porch and pounce on bugs. They were so much fun to watch~ wish I could have one as a pet. Although I did have a baby possum once, named Roadkill~ but that's another story
