That’s not a dog smiling at your screen, but it’s easy to be mistaken.

Juniper is a domesticated fox who lives with her owner and an actual canine named Moose. This beauty enjoys a few simple things: smiling, sleeping, car rides, pouncing and more smiling. So it’s no surprise she is being called the Happiest Fox on Instagram, sharing her grin with over 429,000 followers.

While Juniper does a great dog impression, caring for this orange creature is much more complicated than having a pup.

“Foxes smell. Bad. Their urine and feces smell like skunk mixed with ammonia. There is no way to ‘de-scent’ a fox. You cannot keep a fox indoors 24/7… Foxes are destructive, they will destroy things in your house. Foxes must be fed some raw meats and bone content in their diet. They also need taurine, or they can go blind, suffer from seizures, and even die…” Juniper’s owner told Bored Panda on the hard parts of owning a fox.

Some smelly and honest facts to think about while you look at this adorable fox face.

Looks like Juniper is ready for festival season! We will be watching to see how this cutie spends her summer.
