Fox Rescued And Raised By Humans Thinks He Is A Dog

ADVERTISEMENT

After being rescued as a young fox cub, Todd the 11-month-old fox is getting along just fine as a domestic pet together with his owner, Emma D’Sylva.

Todd goes for walks on a leash, plays with D’Sylva’s two other dogs, and wags his tail when it’s time to eat. He was rescued by D’Sylva when he was 4 months old from other owners who could no longer care for him. Read on for more of his story, with quotes from Dailymail.

(h/t: dailymail)

Todd came to Emma when he was 4 months old

Now 11 months old, he acts just like her dogs

“He will run up to me wagging his tail when I go to feed him and roll over to have his belly tickled”

“He tries to do what the dogs do but I can’t let him off the lead because he’s deaf so I can’t shout him to come back”

ADVERTISEMENT

“He gets on with my two dogs, and wants to play with them all the time”

“He’s really getting used to things now and I’m looking forward to letting more and more people meet him”

ADVERTISEMENT

“Todd went out on his first school visit the other week and the children really enjoyed stroking him while he was in my arms”

There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw

He's lovely. He resembles the Russian foxes that were bred to be friendly. Wonder if he was one of those.

I think that's a Belyaev fox - they are domesticated and that that non-standard colouring pattern. Article should have mentioned that though
