Do foxes make "good house pets"?

Though tame foxes do show similar characteristics to dogs and cats, they actually do not make good "conventional" pets. This is especially true when indoors.

 Foxes dig. They'll dig for many reasons, to bury food, for entertainment, to build dens. We’ve had holes dug into our mattresses, entire rooms of carpet pulled up, a tunnel dug into the couch, and so much more.

It's important that they have an outdoor enclosure, somewhere that they can just not give a fox.

Foxes also love to chew. Most of the foxes I've seen love to chew on any and everything. They are not bias, anything will do. Shirts, bras, underwear, blankets, the couch. 

Foxes do not make good house pets and it is important to remember that they are not a dog, or a cat, they have very different behaviors and needs that they will meet themselves if whomever is caring for them does not meet them first.
