The fox cub wandered alone, helpless to extract himself from the cat food can stuck on his head. A human in Freienagen, Thuringia, Germany, rescued him. He named the fox Chappie.
Chappie loves the dogs who live on the farm--especially Merle, who dug a burrow for Chappie to live in. When he reaches the age of six months, Chappie will be able to choose to stay or leave. If he stays with his human and dog friends, then he'll be taught how to herd cattle--the first fox to do so.
