A woman who thought she'd purchased a dog from a pet shop recently learned that her 'canine' friend is, in fact, a fox. According to Yahoo, the woman paid about $190 for what she thought was a Japanese Spitz-- a breed known for its resemblance to foxes.
After a few weeks of owning her pet, however, the woman, whom outlets are referring to as Ms. Wang, began to notice that it didn't bark. After three months, it it also did not want to continue eating dog food. Yahoo UK quotes Ms. Wang as saying, "The fur got thicker when it reached three months old. Its face became pointy and its tail grew longer than that of a normal dog. Other pet dogs seemed to be scared by my pet so I walked it with a leash.”
