A woman in China who believed she owned a dog was shocked to learn it was a fox.
They do say that dogs and foxes are relatives, but how did this one go unnoticed? A woman in China had purchased what she believed was a Japanese Spitz, but as it grew she learned that it was actually a domesticated fox. The woman, identified as Ms. Wang, bought the dog from a pet shop for $190 in China, but eventually noticed weird behaviors.
For starters, her three-month-old pooch had no bark. At one point it even refused to eat dog food, but if that wasn’t enough the physical signs started to catch up with it. Ms. Wang says, "The fur got thicker when it reached three months old. Its face became pointy and its tail grew longer than that of a normal dog.” She notes that around the same time she noticed other dogs seemed to be scared of hers, too. She eventually took her pet to see expert, Sun Letian at the Taiyuan Zoo.
"Based on the size, it is a domesticated fox,” says Letian. “It carries a smell in their body and the smell can get stronger as it grows older.” And as it grows older it will get bigger, and it’s already 12-inches long.
Unfortunately after learning her dog was a fox, Ms. Wang gave her pet up to the zoo so it could have a better diet and living environment. It will be placed under quarantine for a month before being put in a zoo enclosure.

A man has ditched countless dates over three-years with the check to dinner.
Paul Gonzales is not the first and probably not the last man to ditch a new date and leave her with the restaurant bill, but he is definitely the most notorious and prolific dine-and-dash dater in recent history. According to news reports, the Pasadena man has been leaving his dates with the bill for over three years.
Gonzales first made headlines in March of last year, after ditching two women on separate dates in Pasadena, California, and leaving them with expensive restaurant bills. One of victims told news reporters that she had checked online and had discovered stories of at least two other women conned by the same man, going back one year. The bad publicity he got last year, following extensive media coverage of his exploits, doesn’t seem to have bothered the dine-and-dash dater too much, as just a few days ago two more women came forward to complain about being left with the bill.
One of Gonzales’ most recent victims, who preferred to remain anonymous, told CNN affiliate KCAL that she had met the man on a dating app and agreed to go on a date with him. After enjoying a scrumptious dinner and two cups of coffee, the man reportedly started talking about his sick aunt and how worried he was about her. Then he excused himself to get the charger for his phone from the car, but never came back, leaving her to cover the $130 bill.
A California attorney is urging dine-and-dash victims to file police reports, as this behavior is a crime in the state of California.
“You can be jailed for up to six months or fined up to $1,000 if your dine-and-dash bill was under $950,” Kelly Chang Rickert said.
