Fox is a supporting character in Housepets!, introduced as one of Bino's lieutenants in the story arc The Game  , a role he replays to his deep regret in the strip You Cannot Win.
Originally a minor character, he became a regular supporting character after befriending King. Since then, he has played this best pal role in mostly King-focused arcs, but has also begun to take independent roles where he is the lead actor.

Official Site BiographyEdit

"Fox: Wears dogtags. He’s the smart one, which means he’s almost as smart as a cat. But I kid! He’s friends with Bino mostly to the extent that he still has some lingering issues of his own, including his personal aggravation with cat-lovers. He will go along with Bino and back him up because he’s his friend, though his heart is not often in it. He became fast friends with King after he moved into the neighborhood."

Physical AppearanceEdit

Fox is a pure-bred Alaskan Husky. He has gray fur with light-gray fur on his belly, inner-ears, muzzle and the underside of his legs and tail. He wears a simple brown collar, as well as a separate necklace with two dog tags. The collar is usually covered by his characteristic yellow bandana. Interestingly though, Fox originally wore a yellow collar without the bandana.

Occasionally he is seen wearing a brown bomber jacket in cold weather. Since joining the K-9 Unit, he is mainly seen wearing a police vest and has gained a more muscular appearance due to training.

PersonalityEdit

Fox's most defining trait is his unwavering loyalty to his friends. Originally head-strong as a puppy, fancying himself a ninja-model hero, he mellowed as he got older and became a member of Bino's posse. He also used to share Bino's disdain against "cat-lover" dogs. However, after Grape saved his life, Fox began to question his anti-feline prejudices as well as his faith in Bino's leadership. At the same time, Fox also became a friend and fan of Fido, Bino's brother, an object of hero worship and acclaim by all members of the Good Ol' Dog's Club. Needless to say, when Fox learns about Fido and the cat Sabrina's affectionate relationship, he becomes even more discomforted about his former bigotries. Torn between conflicting loyalties to Bino and Fido, Fox defies Bino's demands to expel Fido from the Club council and votes the council's only abstention. Choosing neutrality over standing strongly with the embattled Fido reflects Fox's mental struggles and emotional agonies over making decisions.

While originally a minor background character, Fox began to stand out on his own after he met King, a new dog with whom he instantly became friends with, unbeknownst to him that he was one of the men who had kidnapped him. Fox eventually figured this out, and after letting out all of his hatred on him, he forgave him. Afterwards, he regularly began to defend King from Bino's antics, going as so far as to physically injure him when Bino goes to far. King's courtship of Bailey, Fox's sister, also accelerates his estrangement from Bino. Fox eventually broke off his friendship with Bino after the events of Love And War when Bino had manipulated him to orchestrating a cruel scheme to compel Sasha to remain his girl by humiliating her.

Ever since the events of Jungle Fever, Fox has struggled to cope with the anger he felt at Fido and Sabrina for hiding their relationship from him and his lingering guilt over not being more supportive of his friend and his beloved cat. Eventually, Sabrina confronts him about his attitudes (although in a rather gentle teasing manner), and Fox, stressed and repentant, blurts out an apology. Delighted, she graciously accepts, strokes his cheek in playful forgiveness, and turns to help him in his dilemma. Later, his former partner Mungo offered to help him off-duty with his issues and insecurities.

General InformationEdit

Fox is an Alaskan Husky, living at Babylon Gardens as Bill's pet. He likes to spend time reading books and is warm-hearted and calm most of times, but gets easily angry at Bino whenever he bothers King. He is a council member of the Good Ol' Dogs Club and friend with all the other members, especially Bino and Fido, his 'Dad,' Bill Lindberg, being a cop he is friends with the K-9 Unit too (and later became an official member), he is also Bailey's relative and King's best friend; and after the failure of Bino's plan to recover Sasha following their break-up, Fox started to develop feelings for the latter, but didn't confess them when Sasha started to date Kevin.

As a youth he was already a friend of Fido and Bino and showed a clearly anti-feline attitude, but was dognapped along with Max and thanks to a young Grape's help, they were saved. After this, he apparently softened about cats, but kept his cat-lovers bias for the most part.

Later on, he was dognapped a second time by two PETA members but was saved by his 'Dad' and the K-9 Unit. This left him hatred toward his captors, but after learning King was originally one of them and let his hatred out on him, he forgave him.

Because of King, Fox currently knows about The Game but is not directly involved. He accompanied King to Heaven in Heaven's Not Enough, Part 2, where he caught the attention of two females, one pink and one green. He also gained two buttons on his bandana. After their return, he flew with King to Australia to get Bailey back.

After the events of The Game, Fox joined the K-9 Unit, and has been in training in the time since he returned home from Australia. After graduating from the academy, Fox was given a partner named Mungo to investigate the assassination attempt on Keene Milton. Fox discovers that Sasha is a suspect and disobeys orders to help her, leading to a two week suspension and retraining, and gets a new partner. He also apologizes to Fido's girlfriend, Sabrina, for not being more supportive of Fido when he was supposed to be Fido's best friend. Fox reveals he's had a troubled conscience over his treatment of both Fido and Sabrina and how he's struggled to escape his prejudices, something his former partner Mungo plans to help him deal with.

RelationshipsEdit

King
KingSmall

Fox became a fast friend of King after meeting him despite odd behavior, Fox has tried to introduce King to other pets in the neighborhood on many occasions in order to help him develop more relationships. They became best friends with time, hanging out together, and spending time with one another. Fox even started to side with him over Bino, even hurting him whenever Bino antagonized King. Eventually King married Fox's cousin Bailey and the two became relatives. However, King had a dark secret; he was one of the two humans who had attempted to kidnap him, leading to Fox's deep hatred of "Joel Robinson." After learning the truth, Fox briefly let his feelings overtake him but quickly came to forgive him. To this day their friendship remains strong.
Fido
FidoSmall

A friend of Fox since their puppy days. They appeared to be very close, as shown when Fox was dognapped in A Sinister Shadow. However after the revelation of Fido and Sabrina's, their relationship was shaken, as it put Fox's "cat-lover" bias into question. However Fox abstained from voting him out of the Good 'Ol Dogs Club. In I Need A Vacation Fox told King that he wanted to mend things with Fido by joining the K-9 Unit, which he did eventually, though he still struggles to cope with his anger and sense of betrayal. Recently, Fox has clearly mellowed somewhat. During Real Stories of the K9PD Fox is forced to confront Sabrina over his attitude towards Fido, with Fox revealing his feelings of betrayal and anger stem from Fido's "betrayal" and needs to learn how to deal with them.
Bino
BinoSmall

A friend of Fox since they were puppies. When they were younger Fox was the more dominating of them, but as the grew older Fox became quieter and Bino took over, becoming a member of his posse. Even when he does not agree with Bino's plans he still goes along with most of them due to his loyal nature, although Fox usually has something to say to him after his machinations fail. However, once Fox met King, he started to hang out with him over Bino, and even physically harmed him several times after Bino hurt King. Though Fox was always usually hesitant to side with Bino, as the comic progressed, he began to openly disagree with him. After the events of Love And War Fox realized what a bad friend Bino was and the two stopped being friends, causing him to quit the Good Ol' Dogs Club and join the K-9 Unit. In Wolf's Clothing he personally arrested Bino after he tried to steal a baby's pacifier. Later on, he wrests Bino's control of the podium at the Good Old Dog's Club, rescuing the grateful audience from Bino's self-glorifying rant in order to get the group to help him find the missing Sasha. Fox and Mungo then compound Bino's humiliation by forcing him to take them to the little doghouse King built for her; as somewhat of a reminder of how Bino never actually cared for Sasha that much. Their estrangement seems total at this point.
Bailey
BaileySmall

Originally Fox's cousin who used to live in Kansas, which Fox visited at times. They now live together because Chuck's (Bailey's previous owner) new place did not allow dogs. Since she calls Bill 'Daddy' now, she can be considered Fox's sister at the time. Even being cousins and later siblings they do not interact too much on their own, although Bailey convinced Fox to confess his feelings for Sasha in Love And War. Fox knew about Bailey being Pete's avatar in The Game, and went with King not only to Australia but also to Heaven to bring her back. After her pups are born, he tries to help King and Bailey find a hands-free for a night out.
Sasha
SashaSmall

Sasha was Bino's girlfriend for quite some time. After she broke up with Bino, Fox worked as part of Bino's plan to make all the other dogs seem worst than him, but he didn't stick to it once Sasha's feelings got hurt. After that, they had a date-like night to make her feel better when he began to develop feelings for her. Later after weighing his newfound attractions to Sasha against the costs of Bino's manipulative friendship, Fox decided to confess his new romantic feelings to her. Before he could open his heart, however, he ran into Sasha in the company of Kevin, the muscle-bound police dog, and discovered she was now dating him. Meanwhile, Bino had taken up with Duchess. Fox found alone, heartbroken, and tired of Bino. Sasha, however, would return later when Fox joined the K9Dp. During the investigation of a murder attempt against Keene Milton ferret, after learning Sasha was a main suspect, Fox did everything in his power to try to protect her out of genuine concern for her well-being. Despite her confession, he even went so far as breaking protocol and turning against his partner to try and find out what was going on. Fox did eventually learn that she was being brainwashed, but as he had disobeyed orders, he is temporarily suspended and retrained as an officer.
Mungo
MungoSmall

Mungo was Fox's partner who worked with him in Real Stories of the K9PD. Being partners, Mungo is friendly and shows care for Fox. Despite having a rocky start the two manage to work together to gather clues for the case; up until Fox discovers Sasha is a main suspect. When Fox breaks protocol in order to protect Sasha Mungo utilizes his duties as an officer to restrain Fox. Ralph explains that Mungo's positivity and willingness to work with others was the reason for their pairing.

Despite the events of the case Mungo proved to be a loyal friend to Fox, promising to help him through his feelings of hurt from Fido's reveal as a therapy dog. The two remain on good terms.
