Although the term dog generally refers to tame and domesticated pet dogs (Canis lupus familiaris), it can also be used for any other mammal of the Canidae ("the dog family") including foxes, wolves, coyotes etc. Furthermore Male foxes are called Dogs or Reynard.
Domestic dogs were classified as a separate species Canis familiaris in 1758 but were reclassified in 1993 as a subspecies of the gray wolf. The dog family was thus divided into "foxes" and "true dogs". However, this subdivision may not actually be in accordance with their relations

The fox can be classified as a rather small omnivorous canine. There are different species of fox on almost every continent but the most common is the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes).According to recent genetic fossil research, it is probable that Dogs were domesticated from wolves. This would have happened anywhere between 15,000 and 100,000 years ago. A female fox is called a vixen and her young are called cubs or kits. The collective noun for a group of foxes is a Skulk.

A fox is definitely a dog. Many of us think that a dog only means a house dog. A fox is a dog who is better left in the wild.

I think that technically speaking, dogs are the furry little fellows that follow you around and beg you to play with them and pet them all the time. Foxes are the sneaky little animals that, like raccoons, get into your trash or fall into your chimney.
