I was just curious...what dog looks most like a Fox?

Here's a Korean Jindo Dog.

And a Finnish Spitz.

There's the Shiba Inu as well...

Some Corgis kinda look like fat, stubby-legged, sometimes tailless Foxes. :happyfox:

alaskan klee kai some of them look a lot like marble foxes. I saw a couple light silver looking ones at a pet fair and at first from a distance I did mistake them for foxes.

Those have the facial features.

These are closer marking wise

Volpino Italiano even means "little italian fox". A bit too fluffy and with a screw-tail, but still worth the recognition.

It would be my breed of choice if I were to get a small dog.
Healthy as can be, they frequently make it into their 20s. :shock:

Some chihuahuas look fennec-like to me. ;) With the tiny bodies and big ol ears.

The closest known breed (in terms of looking like a fox) would be the Icelandic Sheepdog

My old Chihuahua resembled a fennec fox, same colouring and being the runt he had a tiny face but large ears.
Funny thing he was.

The computer guy saw Ikigai as my wallpaper and thought he was a chihuahua.
