Eventually, an employee from a local zoo revealed that Ms. Wang's 'Japanese spitz' was actually a domesticated fox. That was the point all the problems were coming from.

Before Ms. Wang discovered the truth, she said other dog owners walking with their pets in the park told her that her animal resembled a fox! What's more, it scared all other pets, so Mx. Wang needed to walk it with a leash.

Measuring 12 inches (30 centimeters) long, the white-coated pet is expected to grow even bigger. Ms. Wang decided to leave her fox in the zoo, where the animal can receive better living conditions and more suitable nutrition.

Zoo worker said that the fox will be living in a quarantine zone for 1 month, as health checkups need to be done during this period.

After 1 month in the quarantine zone, the white-coated fox will join its friends in the fox enclosure. Fortunately, Ms. Wang can visit her four-legged pet when she misses it.
