Foxed!

By Lloyd Lugsden

An owner was shocked to discover that her pet dog was not a dog!

The woman bought what she thought to be a Japanese Spitz puppy for £140 from a pet shop last year. When the ‘puppy’ was three months old, it stopped eating dog food and grew a long fluffy tail.

She took her dog to the local zoo and a staff member confirmed her dog was in fact a domesticated white coat fox, according to Newshub. She has since decided to give up her ‘pet’, giving it to the zoo for a better living environment.
