Ms Wang, from Jinzhong in China’s Shanxi province, told Shanxi Network Television she bought the ‘puppy’ from a pet shop in July last year.
he said: “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.”
Ms Wang told Chinese media she fed the ‘pooch’ fruit, chicken breasts and dog food, which the pet stopped eating when it reached three months old
Sun Letian, an expert in animal epidemic prevention at Taiyuan Zoo, confirmed Ms Wang’s pet is a fox after she brought her pet in for advice.
He said: “Based on the size, it is a domesticated fox. It carries a smell in their body and the smell can get stronger as it grows older.”
