Joker

 
Joker (male)

Joker is a silver fox — really a silver-phase red fox — who was found under a porch. It was clear from his behavior (he was not afraid of humans) that he was not a wild fox. He was clearly an escaped (or dumped) pet fox.

Joker ended up at a wildlife rehabilitator, and from there was referred to us in April of 2015. Since our female red fox Scarlette was currently without boyfriend we thought we would give him a try. More specifically, we introduced him to Scarlette, and let her decide if she should keep him. She thinks she will! (Joker will be vasectomized prior to breeding season in January, so there will be no offspring from this happy union.)

Joker is not as social as Scarlette but he willingly visits with humans for treats and poses for photos.
