    Foxes are considered Restricted live wildlife in Arizona. You have to get a permit before getting one. Arizona doesnt consider foxes as pets, even if they do come from a breeder.

    Would still be a "Wild" animal, just bred in captivity - Like some have done with Wolves

    Likely need an special enclosure for it to live in

    You Might also need a license to own it -

    The License will probably come with a Training course and have conditions of care for your animal

    Check with your local authority
