Introduction

Foxes are pawsitively gorgeous animals that are similar to dogs in many ways. After all, they are part of the canine family just like wolves, jackals, and dogs. They’re about the same size as a medium-sized pooch, have a long soft coat, a narrow snout, perky pointed ears, and a bushy tail. Although foxes do not typically make good pets, there are many canine companions that look like or act like foxes. Some of these include the Shiba or Akita Inu, Samoyed, Spitz, Norwegian Elkhound, Keeshond, Pomeranian, and the Schipperke. Whichever pooch you choose, next you need to pick a suitable name for your new furbaby.

Dog Name Meaning Fox Considerations

Even if you get a dawg that looks like a fox or a breed with fox in their name like a Foxhound or Fox Terrier, they are not really foxes, and they will need some creature comforts to make them happy. For example, they need some fun doggy toys, a cozy bed, yummy treats, healthy kibble, a collar and leash, a veterinarian, and the perfect name to fit them. For instance, if your canine kid looks like a red fox, you can name them Russhell, which is Old Greek for red fox; Kayuktuk, which is Intuit for red fox; or Rusty, which is French for red-headed fox. 

If you have a petite poochie, you can name them Conan, which means little fox in Irish; Cub, which is another name for a young fox; or Lapsa, which is Latvian for young fox. If your new doggo has a dark coat, you could name them Dawaco, which means dark fox in Somal. Soro is good for a white furbaby because it is a Filipino word for white fox, and Nikita is Igbo for yellow fox and excellent for a gold dog. Whichever moniker you pick, make sure you like it because you will be using it often over the next decade or so. Here are our favorite dog names that mean fox.
