Species: Red Fox
Age: 1 year
Soul was purchased as a kit from a breeder that sold foxes both as pets and as pelts. His owner loved him, but quickly realized foxes do not make good house pets. She built him a large outdoor enclosure, but because of the strong odor that red foxes emit she received numerous complaints. Eventually, legal action was taken against her and she had no choice but to find Soul a new home or have him taken and euthanized.
Luckily, he was able to find a home with us! Soul is a very shy but very sweet boy. He LOVES other animals, particularly dogs. He also loves playing with stuffed animals, burying his treats, and having his belly rubbed.
About Ranch Foxes:
You may notice that Soul doesn't look like the average red fox. His all-white coloration is a result of years of captive breeding. For generations upon generations, foxes have been bred in captivity for their fur. Through that various color morphs have arisen including Soul's, "white marbled". Most ranch foxes aren't lucky enough to escape their fate. We hope that Soul can be a reminder to everyone that no one should die in the name of fashion.
