Whoever thought ‘The Fox and the Hound’ was just fiction better think again. This rottweiler and fox are the best of friends.
All this video is missing is Big Mama, the owl from “The Fox and the Hound.”
The fox, Ruby, was rescued by Swampy’s Wildlife rescue, a rescue operation run out of Ray Allibone’s home in Sheerness, England. Ruby was raised by Spartan the rottweiler and they have been best buds ever since.
Allibone hoped to release Ruby with the rest of her litter but she was more domesticated than her siblings.
She now lives at Allibone’s home and “pesters him [Spartan] a bit because she likes her face washed. They’re extremely friendly.”
Ruby and Spartan simply have a symbiotic relationship. I lick your face, you like mine.
