Do fox dog hybrids exist? A fox cannot breed with a dog. They do not share a compatible number of chromosome pairs, or genetic materials needed to interbreed. Science has not documented a single case of hybridization between a fox and a dog.
Can a dog be part fox? Short answer: no, they can’t. They simply don’t have compatible parts. (Of course, that doesn’t mean they can’t be friends: witness Juniper the Fox and Moose the Dog, above). The longer answer to why dog-fox hybrids can’t exist has to do with the two species having vastly different numbers of chromosomes.
