Juniper has never been a fan of my brother's pup, Chewy. When we first introduced them in April we were hopeful that she would love him the way she loves Moose and our family's dog Oliver.
🐶
After introducing Chewy as a puppy we realized that was not the case. She greeted him excitedly, but the excitement soon turned to aggression/wanting to assert her dominance in the house. Since their initial few introductions they have had to be kept separate because of Juniper's unpredictable nature when he's around.
🐶
That was until recently! Since we've moved, my brother has been visiting rather frequently to help with building the foxes new enclosure. It hasn't been feasible to keep Juniper and Chewy separated for such long durations so I began working on "positivity training" with her!
🐶
I started slowly by allowing her to come sniff Chewy while I held him in my lap for his safety. (Chewy can be rather playful and I didn't want him to run up to her causing her to see him as a threat and attack). After this she would only stand him being in her presence for brief durations of time, but in those time frames I began to heavily reward her with treats and positive reinforcement whenever she would show calm body language around Chewy. While foxes and dogs don't exactly have the same body language or vocal queues, Chewy seems to understand that her squeaks mean to stay away. Which has also helped tremendously during this process.
🐶
This has been working wonders and while she still screams at him if he looks at her too long, she doesn't charge or feel threatened in any way by him. In fact, they've actually began being able to both sleep in the same room unsupervised!

You may have noticed in our recent videos that Juniper is starting to look at little plump. Well, you're not wrong! North American red foxes grow dense winter coats that they usually begin working on in the late fall. These coats are generally soft, silky and relatively long. Quite the contrast from her short corse summer coat.
🌲
Juniper may have gotten a little excited about her new seamstress skills this year. She made an extremely thick coat for this winter! This is due to her wanting to spend more time outside during the chilly nights coupled with the fact that she is from a line of foxes that were originally bred for fur. Her relatives were bred to have the thicker coats than their wild counterparts and this is a trait that was eventually passed down to Juniper.
🌲
So if Juniper looks like she's gained thirty pounds don't be alarmed, she's actually just sporting her own hard work, which looks much better on her than on the hood of someone's jacket.

@Regrann from @juniperfoxx - 🌲Exercise🌲
Foxes are extremely energetic, intelligent animals. Which means walks are incredibly important for us. Without proper exercise and mental stimulation foxes can easily get bored and take that boredom out on objects, animals or people around them. This could lead to aggression, depression, or lethargy.
🌲
In the wild foxes can travel up to five miles a day. To keep Juniper's nose, brain, and body active we walk her daily. These trips through the woods provide lots of mental stimulation and kind of work like a reset button. We all feel good connecting to our roots, right?
🌲
We get a lot of comments regarding her leash. Juniper does need to be leashed when we walk, this is mostly for her safety. Foxes, being inherently wild mannered do not have great "recall". Recall is a term that's used to describe the tendencies of how well an animal returns when called. Juniper may not stray far when off leash, but the leash comes in handy for cases of another animal approaching us, (or when she tries to climb into another animals burrow). It is also required by law for her to be leashed when she isn't home, this is also for her safety and the safety of others.

@Regrann from @juniperfoxx - 🌿Possession/Aggression🌿
((Listen for fox vocals)). This was a topic I was planning on posting about without video because we normally avoid provoking Juniper into aggressive states. However, we got her a new toy today and she immediately became very possessive of it and started attacking the swiffer sitting next to the couch (which she made a den out of). So I figured this would be he perfect opportunity to show you guys the worst of the worst.
Also guys, I was not poking her with this.. I was trying to get it back from her. The motions you see are me tugging on it and her not letting go/trying to take it into the couch.
Foxes can be extremely possessive over certain toys or food. This is a normal behavior and it's best to just let them be once they're in this state of mind. "There is no real way to train a fox to not be dominant over some items"-livingwithfoxes.weebly.com.
This behavior is why I advised foxes and children are not a good mixture. This is also partly why I advised they are not like cats or dogs. Granted there are always exceptions to every rule. I've seen foxes that may not display aggression toward anything, or foxes that are fine with children. No one should get a fox expecting it to be the exception, this is natural behavior. This is what should be expected. ✨
Note: I am not attempting to encourage anyone to get a fox as a pet, but the reality is that they are sold as pets.I hope that my posts can at least inform of the actuality that is living with such a rambunctious little life and stop the misinformation that will ultimately lead to foxes being the next novelty pet

Update:Fig has started to become much more comfortable in the house. Juniper constantly reassures him that there's nothing to be afraid of. She's still taking her mothering roll seriously and I've seen a drastic change in her personality since Fig arrived. Has anyone else noticed how calm and affectionate she's become over the last few months?
💕
Figs personality could not be more opposite from Juniper's. He's very lazy and laid back, almost nothing seems to phase him. His favorite thing to do is sleep and if he's not sleeping he's busy lounging. He's not possessive of toys or food. He loves being kissed and held. He doesn't bite or nip at all and when Juniper was his age she was a heathen. Because of his gentle nature, I'm hoping that we will be able to do educational programs with him in the future. Which means you guys would have the opportunity to meet Fig and learn more about Ranched foxes, animal orthotics, and the fur industry! (Juniper and her spit-fire personality make her unpredictable and she can't always be trusted around new people. She would probably still accompany us to these programs, but she would not be able to be handled by others.)
💕
I would like to personally thank everyone who has donated or purchased an item from us to help us raise money for Figs new foot. We're very close to meeting our goal and I cannot wait to share the rest of this journey with all of you!

"Sleeping Habits"
🌙
Juniper does sleep in the bed with us most nights. Moose likes to sleep in between my boyfriend and I, and Juniper likes to sleep on top of Moose.


Foxes are nocturnal animals so they're most active at night. Some nights end up with her pouncing on us, nibbling on toes, or running around crazily, but she eventually settles down and sleeps.


Like most puppies Juniper was kennel trained from a young age. This means we would place her in a kennel at night before bed. This helped a lot with regulating her schedule and also provided her with her own "den" or "safe place". Foxes and most other animals feel comfortable when they have their own space to go to hide or sleep. Juniper still sleeps in her kennel every now and again and treats it like she would a den.

🌿Q & A🌿
If you're new to this page this is just a general post we make every so often just to go over some information. Please remember that foxes are inherently wild mannered and while they do portray characteristics similar to cats and dogs, they are still a fox. So to those of you who "want one" please remember..
🌿
Foxes smell horrible. You can smell Juniper the moment you pull into my drive way. Their urine and feces smell like skunk mixed with ammonia. There is no way to “de-scent” a fox.
🌿
Foxes can't just be kept in your back yard. Or in your home. They need their own space to be able to do fox stuff. They're avid diggers and will most likely destroy your flooring at some point or another. They can dig under any fence or climb over it.. Easily.
🌿
Foxes need a special diet and must be fed some raw meats and bone content. They also need taurine, or they can go blind, suffer from seizures, and even die. Simply giving them dog or cat food will not do.
🌿
Foxes are illegal to own in many areas. Just because they are legal in your state, does not mean the same is true for your city. Legality depends on permit regulations. You do need a permit.
🌿
Foxes pee on things they think is theirs. This is a marking behavior and nearly impossible to break them of and remember their pee stinks. So having a fox means having almost everything you own smell awful.
🌿

Foxes are easily stressed by new situations and people. They usually bond to one person and find exposure to new people and loud noises to be frightening.
🌿
Foxes do not always get along with dogs, and in fact, dogs are pretty likely to hate them.
🌿
Foxes naturally guard their resources, this means they are prone to biting when you're near something they find valuable and don't want you to take.
🌿
We love Juniper dearly and while there are just as many upsides to her living with us (she's obviously adorable) it's important to remember she's a fox, not a dog and to respect her as such.
🌿

(Volume up for some weird vocals) Juniper was pretty upset about Olive watching her hide a treat. We get a lot of questions regarding how Juniper gets along with Olive and it's really mixed reactions. Because of Juniper's wild nature and the fact that Olive is much smaller we keep them separated. We have a screened in porch that acts as a catio while Juniper is inside and while Juniper generally ignores Olive, you can see she's sometimes in no mood for feline company.

Personality Update: In the wild red foxes only have their young between the months of February through May. This year Juniper's instincts took over and because she was unable to have her own babies, she adopted these two balls as her own. She's been an excellent ball mother and they'll definitely grow up to be strong independent squeaky toys.
ЛИСА ,не имеющая возможность иметь детёнышей,приняла мячики за своих детей.Материнский инстинкт иногда больше развит у зверей,чем у людей😱❤️😇
🎾
I do my best to give Juniper the most natural life I possibly can and I wish I could give her a baby to care for while she's feeling so motherly. Maybe it's time to adopt another 😭
#AreYouMyMother #livingwithjuni

This is not he most exciting or the cutest video, but it's a pretty important one! 👉🏼 A few months ago I posted a similar video of Juniper eating her meal and showing signs of being slightly aggressive. We had been working on her food aggression issues since she was six weeks old, when she began attacking us during every meal.
🍔
Foxes are notorious for aggressively guarding their resources. (A retained wild trait). While I normally allow Juniper to display all of her wild tendencies, this was something that we needed to work on, so I began training her to understand that guarding her food and toys was okay, but being aggressive and biting while guarding was not.
🍔
Since that last video she has not only shown zero signs of food aggression with myself or Moose, but also allows baby Fig to eat right of of the bowl with her. @reelraw

Sometimes the helping is a necessity and sometimes it's mistake..but more worse when this is intentional act!

🌿"What should I do if I find a baby fox in the wild?"🌿
🦊
After receiving about 40 different emails this week about people finding young red foxes, I thought making a post to address this would be important.
Baby foxes are referred to as "kits", if you find a fox kit alone it doesn't always mean that they're an orphan. Many times you may be taking a perfectly healthy young fox out of its environment, unknowingly. Mother foxes do leave their young periodically to hunt. If you find a fox kit, it is best to leave it alone unless it is injured or clearly malnourished. If you have to ability to keep an eye on the baby take some time to see if mom comes back. If there are no signs of a mother for at least 48 hours, the next step is to contact your local wildlife rehabilitator. Which you can find by contacting the department of natural resources or even a quick google search.
🦊
If you need to house a kit, here are a few things to keep in mind. Try not to feed the baby, a lot of times by offering the wrong food you can make the situation much worse. Many times people have great intentions, but by offering a non species appropriate diet they often do more damage. Changing from mother's milk to a milk replacement can also be very hard on a baby's stomach and can often times cause them to go downhill fast due to diarrhea and vomiting. If feeding is necessary (life or death) give pedialyte. Also be sure to give the fox a nice dark, warm, and quite place to settle. Even at a young age they can easily be over stressed which can, in some cases, also lead to death.
🦊
Many countries have different laws when it comes to keeping wildlife. In the US it is illegal to keep animals that are found in the wild. Often times keeping wild animals leads to their confiscation and heavy fines. If I have any wildlife rehabbers out there feel free to comment any additional advice. I hope you guys find this at least a little helpful, I know many of you have nothing but the best intentions!

"Why does Juniper's butt look weird?"
"How do you groom her?"
🌵
You guys, Juniper has been excessively shedding for months now. Red foxes grow thick winter coats and instead of shedding all year like most animals they shed their entire coat over the course of a few months in the spring and summer.
🌵
Juniper almost never gets baths, her coat is extremely silky most of the year and dirt seems to just slide right off. She also does a great job of keeping herself clean, but in the summer she needs a little help with that back end...
🍑
Currently she's brushed at least twice a day, and we have to vacuum the carpets twice a day as well! The fur is never ending around here.

Update: Juniper has completely taken on the roll of being Fig's mother. She has gone so far, in fact, that she stole my dinner off of my plate and took it to Fig for him to eat. Which he immediately did and I was left with my mouth hanging open.. dinnerless.
🍌
If you turn your volume up you can hear the calls that she makes to him. They're very soft and sweet. She's been extremely gentle, constantly watching over him and grooming him. In this video she continually tries to bring him her Banana to play with.
🍌
I couldn't have asked for a better situation for either fox. Some of you may recall Juniper's instincts compelling her to care for her two Toy balls as if they were babies. Fig satisfies her need to mother a kit and in turn he is going to live a more natural life by having a fox companion to grow up with.

Fig or Fumble? Help me pick his name!

Q&A
•This baby is considered a "fire and ice fox" he will not get darker or turn orange. In fact, he'll actually get lighter the older he gets. He will be mostly a cream color with blue/grey stockings. He will look similar to the second picture on this post (Image from google).
👇🏼
•He is from a fur farm. For those of you who don't know a fur farm is a place where foxes are bred to become pelts for things like coats, hats, and jacket trim.
👇🏼
•He is six weeks old and his missing eye, foot and toes are due to a bacterial infection that took place while he was living on the fur farm.
👇🏼
•He will be getting a prosthetic foot in just a few months. While animals can adapt to live fine with missing limbs, he will need a prosthetic because of the fact that he's only missing his foot. This causes him to put pressure on his wrist when he walks. This can be stressful to the bone and the prosthetic will act as a cushion.

Introducing Juniper to the new baby
🦊
To be completely honest I've been very nervous about introducing our new addition to Juniper. She generally doesn't like animals that are similar or smaller in size to her and only prefers the company of large dogs. For that reason I thought she may reject the baby.
🦊
After speaking with others who housed multiple foxes they reassured me and explained that foxes generally love babies and out of everyone I spoke with no one had ever had a problem with introductions. They let me know it may be an especially good introduction since Juniper "mothers" her toys (two blue squeezer balls we call the Wilson sisters).
🦊
If you listen closely at the beginning of the video you can hear Juniper make a gurgling sound. This is a noise that foxes use toward babies! She immediately knew it was a baby fox and even though she was unsure of how she felt about their first introduction, it's a great sign that she made this sound!
🦊
Juniper has never seen another fox before so everything about him is very new to her. We're taking introductions slowly, but it looks like it's going to be smooth sailing very soon.
#livingwithjuni

So excited. Car rides haven’t always been an easy task. Some days they’re a breeze, others they’re a complete nightmare. Recently @MyPuppyLove_ sent me their M7 Back Seat Cover which has been amazing. Foxes produce hormones that raise their stress levels tremendously in unknown situations. Even though Juniper loves to get in the car and ride to our favorite hiking spot, there can be an occasional bump in the road, or a branch that rubs the top of the Jeep. These things can be incredibly frightening which cause her to speed under the seats and hide, making it difficult to get her to calm down when we get to our final destination. The cover not only keeps Juniper from running to the floorboards, but also has a leash attachment that acts like a little seatbelt for her. I’ve seen these in the stores before and I’ve always wanted to try one, but this one is really more than I could have expected, its well made, padded, and keeps our backseat super clean. Ever since we started using it Juniper has been calm and content on our rides together. Making me a happy mum and her the happiest fox.
You can grab one in the @MyPuppyLove_ Bio (they're 40% off until midnight!) 🚙

🍃Sometimes it's easy to forget that Juniper is an inherently wild animal🍃

In this video I went outside to say good morning to Juniper before giving her an egg for breakfast. Being nocturnal she's normally pretty grouchy in the morning, but generally doesn't mind a couple minutes of interaction. On this particular day, she decided to let me know she preferred some space, which is perfectly fine and I let her go back to sleep. What's important to remember is that this behavior isn't "bad behavior", but a display of her wild nature.
🍃
Everyday I get comments, DM's, and emails saying "I found foxes for sale online and I'm planning on getting one.. what should I know about them?" While I can't respond to everyone, I can make a post about it. I want our Instagram to be an educational resource. While Juniper and I are very close, and she seems very well behaved this isn't always the case. She's still a fox, and acts like a fox and in this video she's demonstrating typical fox behavior.
🍃
Every year I see so many foxes rehomed or perish within their first year because of assumptions that they act like a dog or cat. Coupled by the lack of information readily available. Dogs and cats have been domesticated for so much longer, they want to please people, to be close to people. Foxes one the other hand are prone to biting (badly) and destructive behavior. They require an extensive amount of time and attention to get them to the point where they are even sociable. They require permits to own and are illegal in most places. Most vets will not treat them and they usually require an exotic vet which can be costly. It's usually illegal to walk them in public places. They need an outdoor enclosure and cannot be kept indoors constantly. They're skittish, they smell, and they are almost never able to be fully house broken.

These are the things you don't see floating around online, the reality of living with one of these inherently wild creatures. Foxes can live between 9-15 years in captivity. 9-15 years of permits, costly vet bills, raw diets, and pee.. on everything, but also love. A lot of it.

Personality Update: In the wild red foxes only have their young between the months of February through May. This year Juniper's instincts took over and because she was unable to have her own babies, she adopted these two balls as her own. She's been an excellent ball mother and they'll definitely grow up to be strong independent squeaky toys.
ЛИСА ,не имеющая возможность иметь детёнышей,приняла мячики за своих детей.Материнский инстинкт иногда больше развит у зверей,чем у людей😱❤️😇

I do my best to give Juniper the most natural life I possibly can and I wish I could give her a baby to care for while she's feeling so motherly. Maybe it's time to adopt another 😭
