45 Names for Pet Foxes, From Pop Culture to Our Favorites!

Ever wanted a pet fox? Obviously, it all starts with a good name!

Foxes are extremely opportunistic and will eat anything (like my chickens) they can find! Wild foxes can eat a large variety of different foods, ranging from mushrooms, berries, fruit and, of course, small animals depending on the season. While they seem incapable of domestication at the surface, there are tons of friendly pet foxes that exist, with many garnering huge followings on social media. They require a bit of maintenance, including exercise, space to roam, and finding a specialized veterinarian who can help keep them healthy, but owning foxes as pets is proven to be incredibly rewarding for the right owner and circumstance.
