Fox Is Orphaned As A Baby, So Large Dog Steps In To Become His Surrogate Mother

There is no such thing as one type of friendship.

Like the saying goes, you cant always pick who you love, whether it’s a romantic or platonic relationship. Sometimes you gravitate toward someonewhocould not be any more different than you (like this cat and bunnywho formed an inseparable bond), while other times you’re inclinedto hang out with someonewhocouldbe yourlong-lost twin.

And sometimes, it can be a combination of both.

When Oscar the baby fox was rescued and introduced to Dublin, a German shepherd, not only did he gain a best friend, he also gained a surrogate mother, aunique situation that couldnt have worked out more perfectly. And since bothfoxes and German shepherds have extremely energetic natures, these two hit it off without a hitch from the get-go.

Its weird to see a wild animal like a fox and a domesticated dog, you know, kind of have that friendship and get along, said Jordyn Blackmon, a fan of the fox-dog friendship. She also pointed outthat Oscar doesnt even notice hes different from the group.

And what shared hobbybrings the two very different animals even closer together? A good game of hide-and-seek.

Allison Hedgecoth, Dublin and Oscars owner, said: Oscar loves to bury his prized toys. Hell run and hell bury it, like a fox in the wild would, and then Dublin loves to come up behind him, dig the toy up, and run off with it.
