Re: Cinnamon, Amber, or Something Else?

I just wanted to pop in and say I got my Roulette from David Keener as well. I saw those particular kits when they were just itty bitty little things. Kinda kicking myself now for not getting one. Yours is certainly a beauty! I do recall he was quite surprised when he saw them, and didn't know what ...

Re: A bad bite

I feel your pain. My Roulette has broken 2 fangs doing something similar! Only he bit the fork and broke them on the metal of it, whilst attempting to steal something someone was eating. They broke extremely close to the gums, and I've kept a close watch on them. Foxes are stubborn, often trying ani...

Re: Noctural face pouncing

Ah face pouncing. The cutest, yet rudest way, I have ever been woken up by any animal. Mine was, and still is, a shameless face pouncer. He does it when I'm trying to take a nap during the day as well. Aside from crating at night, a stern no and a spray bottle do work wonders. At least until your ki...

Re: I need resources!

My goodness, your babies are beautiful! Thank you for providing photos that demonstrate how the coat color changes. I prefer the wolfish look, but more of the dog personality. So mid to low grade is my best bet then. I'll definitely have the animal altered. I was looking over breeders, and they ment...

Re: don't laugh-he won't stop humping

So the stuffed dog is a bust. He won't have anything to do with it. He'll stop after put on the stuffed dog, then go right back to my dog's head. It seems my dog's head is his chosen thing, and I guess as long as he isn't hurting my dog or my dog isn't trying to eat him for the offense, it's all goo...

I need resources!

I've finally decided to purchase a wolf dog hybrid. I'll be doing this a few years down the road, but want to begin reading up on everything I need to know before hand. Does anyone have any information/personal experience and knowledge you'd like to impart? I'm not wholly unfamiliar with the hybrids...

Re: Fox biting

At least it was only your fingers! Roulette hauled off and bit me on the face tonight. I totally sympathize with the ouch factor. It's very surprising, especially when they just do it, with seemingly no provocation. Roulette is a very good kit, but he has his moods. I think he's a bipolar weirdo, bu...

Re: don't laugh-he won't stop humping

Hmm. I do have an old stuffed dog that's about fox sized. Bigger than him, but if my dog is anything to go by, size isn't an issue to the little furry menace. Almost the same color as my dog too. I never thought I would ever have to get a special friend for my fox. I'm glad I have this forum to go t...

Re: don't laugh-he won't stop humping

So I tried clapping and saying his name when I see him getting ready to do his dirty foxy dance, and two things are happening. One, the clapping and shouting does nothing. He just stares at me while doing it. Two, he stops, pounces the heck out of my dog, then he humps. I think I'm just going to cou...

don't laugh-he won't stop humping

Specifically, the back of my dog's head. My poor victimized dog can't even lay down anymore, without a courtesy hump. Is it normal for foxes to hump this early? He's only two months old! I'm stuck between finding it obscenely funny, and frustrated for my dog. He handles the situation well, but occas...

Re: Traveling in-state with a fox?

That's horrible! They seized the dogs of people who weren't even residents? That's low. Poor pitties :( Roulette loves car rides. He does exceptionally well, and will either chill on the seat, playing with a toy, nap, or he's looking out the window. I'll definitely check into the county laws. I'm no...

Traveling in-state with a fox?

I'm going to be traveling a lot soon, in-state only, and was wondering how well my Roulette would handle the travel. I'll be using an 18 foot, pull along travel trailer to stay in. I've already let him hang out inside it, and have fox proofed it. No cords he can get to, no little bits and pieces he ...

Re: What food?

Taste of the wild for dogs, chicken giblets, with fruit and veg thrown in, is what Roulette gets. He also gets the occassional egg. He no longer gets weird poops, and doesn't eat his poop anymore either. He's thriving on that mix. Don't know how good earthborn for dogs is, but my cat hated it when I...

Re: There's a furry goblin after my feet!

I've had Roulette for almost a month now, and every week, it seems he finds another way to be a furry menace :lol: He was nippy the first couple days and cried constantly. Now, he only nips if he's trying to steal food, and will bite if you try to bother him while eating. The foot thing is super ann...

Re: There's a furry goblin after my feet!

From my understanding, foxes do not learn the same way dogs do. While saying No accompanied with a scruffing might work for a dog, the only thing that has accomplished with Roulette, is for him to just be quicker with his foot ambushes. Doing that doesn't even work with my cat :/ She just ignores it...
