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
