It may sound like the plot of a Disney movie - but Todd the fox really does think he's a dog.

 The animal was tamed after being rescued as a four-month-old cub and was raised with dogs by owner Emma D'Sylva.

Since then the lovable fox has picked up a number of canine characteristics such as tail wagging, playing with toys.

The 11-month-old animal accompanies Ms D'Sylva's pet labradors Sky and Oakley on walks, drawing double-takes from other dog-walkers when they see Todd trotting through the local park.

He also sleeps in a kennel in his enclosure in the garden, plays energetically with the other dogs and even wags his tail when it's feeding time.

Emma, 25, from Stanfield, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs., said: 'Todd has been captive-bred so he has never been in the wild. 'I've had him since he was about four months old because his previous owners couldn't look after him any more.
