This Tiny Abandoned Baby Fox Has Become Besties With A Teddy Bear

Puggle’s carer, Martin Hemmington, said the fox takes his “beloved teddy bear with him absolutely everywhere”.

Puggle was taken to the National Fox Welfare Society – where abandoned fox cubs are nursed back to health.


Hemmington, who is also the director of the National Fox Welfare Society, said that when an orphaned cub comes in on its own he always gives them a soft teddy for company.

Hemmington, who has been running the voluntary organisation for almost 30 years, also gives orphaned foxes a hot water bottle and a clock, which ticks like the heartbeat of their mum.

"When foxes come in a group, they've got each other for company but when they're on their own it's nice to give them something to cuddle up to," he told the SWNS news agency.

"One minute he'll cuddle up to it, then he'll go to the toilet on it, and the next minute he's throwing it around and playing with it," he added.


"He first went to two of our rescuers and both of them were saying he won't have the bottle, so I collected him and brought him back with me," he said.

"You'd think they're spitting it out by now but nope, he loves it. I guess he's young at heart," Hemmington said.
