Fox-kin are the smallest Canine race, rarely beating 4 feet tall, or breaking 80 lbs. They have angular features, especially in their ears and muzzle and a large bushy tail. The two most common color combinations for Fox-kin fur are mostly red with darker appendages, or a pure snow-like white.

Fox-kin not only speak yipyap, but have produced several linguistic scholars that have developed extensive grammar rules for both the written and spoken versions of the language.

Some Fox-kin have even gone so far as to call their dialect of the language “High Yipyap”, as it aims to remove the more folksy slang used by the Dog-kin.

Fox-kin eat a mostly balanced diet, with a high concentration of nuts and berries to supplement their primary meat choice of chicken.
