ABOUT

Meet Riot

Much of what we know of Riot’s background before his last owner surrendered him to us is unknown. It is thought that he was being kept in an illegal state and when the USDA went out confiscate him the original owners said he had run away. He was later found at a farm that the USDA went to on an unrelated confiscation of abused animals and found poor Riot in a cage on the back of the property. This is when Havoc’s owner got custody of him. She took him because she knew he would be destroyed. She traveled across State lines to bring him to her home. It is believed that riot spent about 6 months on the run in Colorado where it is illegal to keep Red Foxes. He somehow was able to care for himself for those months in the wild probably by any means necessary to stay alive! We believe, at times that that is why he has a slight food aggression.

RIOT’S FOXYNALITY

Personality

Riot is a sweet old soul. We don’t know much about his background but know he must have had a good upbringing as he has never offered to bite or be aggressive in any way.

It seems to be he is overexcited about food rather than aggressive as He will jump to grab food out of your hand if he can. Though he doesn’t bite or make any threatening moves ever. He has since calmed a bit but is very excited to get his treats and dinner at night! He is an awesome eater and eats everything in his bowl as well as enjoys his fruits and veggies.

He is sweet and carefree in the run yard entertaining himself by running then flopping down. He loves to be scratched by his people and has been walked on a leash but prefers the safety of what he already knows. Riot could be described as shy with other foxes that are over exuberant.  He gets along with dogs that aren’t overly interested. We couldn’t be more pleased with Riot as he is such a sweet loving boy.
