Fox playing “Tag” with a dog. Adorable friendship!!!
Dogs and foxes in normal circumstances would usually be enemies, being separated by thousands of years of domestication, but these two ignore all that and share an unlikely strong bond. Tinni’s owner, Torgeir Berge, noted how similar his dog and Sniffer were. He says sometimes it appears that the two are fighting, but it only looks like that, they never hurt each other. Tinni found a great friend and a wonderful workout buddy. German Shepherds do require a lot of exercise. Because of similarities in behavior, Berge calls the fox, the ‘dog of the forest’ and now he is campaigning to ban Norway’s controversial fox-fur trade. He believes that it is very cruel to keep wild animals in tiny cages and later kill them, so that people would look good in a coat made out of their fur. Berge will donate a large portion of the proceeds from his book to help his conservation and sponsor the anti-fur trade campaign.
