Dogs are domesticated animals, are referred to as man’s best friend, and are typically loyal and loving. They are glad to see you when you come home from work, and they run up to you and say hello. Foxes, on the other hand, usually stay away from humans, and they are wild animals. They are beautiful to look at, which is why the term “fox” is often used to describe a good looking female.

Female foxes are called vixens. Foxes come in a wide array of colors, but the most familiar one to the human being is the red fox. They also have a long muzzle and a bushy tail, are much smaller than dogs, and also weigh less. The physical characteristics of a dog differs based on the breed, height, or type. Dogs need to be taken out for walks, as that is how they expel energy and waste.

Dogs need to be walked with a leash while the human guides the dog in the right direction. Dogs in the wild usually live in large packs, and they will hunt in these packs. Dogs can also serve specific purposes, such as service dogs or drug-sniffing dogs. The average lifespan is sixteen years, while foxes tend to live for about ten years.

Dogs usually come in different breeds, so their appearance may not always look similar to the fox. Dogs are known to be domesticated, which means that they will be able to live with humans and their households. Foxes are not domesticated, which means that they can cause havoc when humans force foxes to live with them. Foxes usually have markings found on their ears that will let you know that you have a fox in your midst. Look for black-tipped ears to be sure.
