Should I get a pet fox in the future?

Pros:
Uses litter boxes
Very playful
Intelligent
Can learn commands like "sit" "shake" etc. like a dog
Shows affection like a cat
... It's a fox. Enough said.

Cons:
Prone to biting and destructive behavior
They smell really bad
Cannot be sent to a "doggy daycare"
house broken foxes might still mark
skittish
It's critical to have a vet and most vets don't treat foxes

Having a fox is a big responsibility. I know that. I know that they aren't 100% domestic. I know they are not as easy as a dog or cat. But I love foxes so much and I would be completely willing to put in all the work to be a good fox owner πŸΎπŸ‚

I can't get one right now because I'm broke lol.
and you need a house with a yard, which I don't have. But in the future I will.

  • Yes if you really think you can handle it and your up for the challenge then yeah get one. I'm going to get a wolf in maybe 3 years or so, so a fox would be easier taken care of but more work than your average dog. Just try to get a vet close to you that will treat it or look or a exotic vet.

  • They're not domestic animals. They really don't belong in a home.

  • If the fox smells, give it a bath.
    Simple!
    Every dog needs a couple of baths every week.
    A shampoo and a blow dry would get the fox's coat looking floof.

  • Having a fox around could be risky.
    I'd get a dog, if it's the look you like, then maybe a breed similar to a fox. You'll get just as much love and companionship, if not more, and you can easily buy dog supplies and take it to the vet, etc.

  • Depends on where you are.

    If you live in a country where foxes aren't native, then NO. Feral foxes have caused havoc in Australia, for example.
