Meet Juniper, a pet fox whose adorable photos are sure to steal your heart. Her human calls her “the happiest fox,” and her joyful nature is made overly apparent through her popular Instagram account (@juniperfoxx).
Grinning ear to ear, getting cuddly with a canine friend, standing at the counter, and even taking a bubble bath are all things you wouldn’t expect from a species that’s often described as aloof, but Juniper defies the stereotypes with her warm, photogenic presence. She’s often compared to having similarities to the naturally friendly and playful personality of a dog, particularly after a video of the adorable fox trying to dig her way through white bed sheets (which you can view below) was published.
Juniper has a lovably playful side at all times. Even when she’s destroyed a couch cushion she radiates an incredibly charming glow. Though, as Juniper’s human explains, this furry creature isn’t for everyone.
Foxes are wild animals and need to be cared for accordingly, which includes a diet made of raw meat and bone content. “They require an extensive amount of time and care to get them to the point where they are even sociable,” her caretaker explains. “Juniper takes up 90% of my day.” So while most of us can’t own our own fox, we can still live vicariously through Juniper’s antics.
