About the design:

I am a dog person and have three highly active rat terriers. So, I am also partial to all canines. This design is a fox taking a break in some tall grass. I’ve often seen my dogs take this pose, all stretched out with their bellies flat to ground to shed heat, so it seems reasonable to expect that a fox might also do so after a long day of hunting. Foxes hunt small prey (mice, rats, voles, etc) and are more catlike in their behavior than their larger cousins. Except for coyotes, foxes are also more adaptable to living around humans than most other wild canids. This does not mean that a wild fox would make a good pet. No wild animal should be turned into a pet. Any “abandoned” cubs that are found should be turned into your local wildlife rehabilitator.
