Family’s rescued puppy turns out not to be a puppy at all


Family’s rescued puppy turns out not to be a puppy at all



A family in Whitehorse, Canada found a small abandoned puppy in the woods and rescued the baby animal. At least, that’s what they thought they had found. But it turns out the tiny fuzzy baby was definitely not a dog.

Ralph Shopland and his family found the hurt animal alone near Marsh Lake. “I just defaulted to thinking it was a dog,” Ralph Shopland told CBC News in 2014 when they found it. The family turned to Facebook to ask for help and a wetnurse.

Here’s a news video made a month after the fox’s initial rescue, by which time they definitely knew he was a fox!
