Cheyenne is a red fox who was orphaned when she only a month old when her mother was hit by a car in Illinois. Upon being rescued, she was only given a 40 percent chance of survival. But thanks to medications, a healthy diet and lots of love and care, she was able to recover.
Cheyenne enjoys spending her time sunning herself on top of her den during warm afternoons. You can usually catch her running around with a dog rope toy in her mouth, looking for a new hiding place for her favorite toy. On occasion, she catches birds and tries to hide them before her den mate Oreo discovers them.
Cheyenne has been with us for 11 years.
About Red Foxes
Red Foxes can be found throughout the U.S., and in the wild tend to live in families with shared territories. They are the largest of the fox species, with males being slightly larger in size than females. Their red coats vary in coloration, which sometimes cause them to be confused with grey foxes. Their lower legs are black and their tail may have a white or black tip.
They breed once a year with litters ranging anywhere from one to 13 pups. Although considered a canine species, red foxes have very cat-like behaviors. Foxes communicate by both scent and using their tails. There have been 28 discovered distinctive fox vocalizations. Foxes love the winter weather and can be commonly spotted running or playing out in the open during the colder months.
