Species: Red Fox
Age: 2 years
We found Griffin being sold on Craigslist with a concerning low price. It became clear to us that he was poorly cared for, and we made the decision to purchase him in an effort to insure he wound up safe. When we picked up Griffin he weighed only 6 lbs. He was malnourished, missing fur, and was covered in fleas.
Despite his rough start to life, Griffin has an exceptional personality! In fact, his friendliness towards all people is arguably bizarre. He greets everyone with a wagging tail and a big goofy grin. His favorite things are playing with toys (particularly tennis balls), being pet, and getting attention.
About Domestic Red Foxes:
Many people hear the term, 'domestic fox' and think that means these foxes are pets like a cat or a dog. This notion is absolutely false. While domestic foxes do have different personalities than their wild cousins, they are still wild animals at heart. They are flighty, skittish, destructive, and are prone to bite. Like a wild fox, they have a strong predatory instinct and unpredictable behavior.
