Odd couple: Rottweiler and fox are fast friends

Who says a fox and hound can’t be friends? Clearly, there’s no bloodsport at this British animal rescue facility.

Such is the case of Spartan, a Rottweiler, who is best buddies with Ruby, a rescued fox. Ray Allibone, who operates Swampys Wildlife Rescue in Sheerness, has posted some amazing photos and a delightful video of the playmates on his Facebook page.


They play together, even groom each other and are all around adorable. Ruby was orphaned four years ago and hand-raised by Allibone, who for the record, doesn’t recommend keeping foxes as pets.
