Moose is an Australian Shepherd Mix, and Juniper is a fox who was rescued as a pup. The first time Moose laid eyes on Juniper, he became her guardian angel.
The two do everything together; eat, sleep, and even play. Juniper behaves like a girl with a crush whenever she is around Moose.
“Juniper is in love with Moose and spends all day trying to get as much of his attention as possible,” says her mom, Jessika. “I brought Juniper home when she was only five weeks old. Moose was raised around all kinds of animals so when she ran up to him tail wagging and crying they were instantly friends.”
“Foxes put their butts on things they want to own or think is theirs. Moose gets sat on daily. I’ll often walk into the room and see Moose laying down with such a glum look on his face while Juniper is there just sitting on his head, smiling.”
Even though they get along, Juniper’s mom warns everyone on her Instagram that having a pet fox is not like having a dog or a cat:
“Foxes smell. Bad. Their urine and feces smell like skunk mixed with ammonia. There is no way to ‘de-scent’ a fox. Foxes are destructive, they will destroy things in your house. They also need taurine, or they can go blind, suffer from seizures, and even die…”
There are many things to consider before taking a fox in as a pet!
