“Archer usually starts giggling whenever my boyfriend laughs,” Shafer shared. “He’s a very vocal, very loving, very happy fox.” Laughing like a human isn’t Archer’s only impression. Shafer explained that the white fox sounds “like a monkey sometimes.” “He also does some happy ‘screams’ and he honestly sounds like a monkey sometimes,” Shafer said. “He also does a howl whenever he’s out in the yard and wants attention or wants to come inside.”

Shafer got Archer from a breeder in Indiana when he was a cub and they have been living together ever since. Shafer has trained Archer to recognize his name and to sit on command. However, potty training the little fox has been a little difficult. “Arctic foxes are definitely not for everyone since they’re not the easiest pet to have, but I did a lot of research and decided they were for me,” Shafer explained. “They take a lot of dedication in terms of training.” Even though the fox “needs constant supervision and a lot of patience,” it has “all been worth it” for Shafer. “His laughter is contagious and he brings us a lot of joy,” Shafer said.
