Foxes tend not to make great pets. They are still to be considered as a wild animal. It wouldn't be so much does a fox suit you as do you suit a fox? Do have a lot of time, money and commitment to spend? Do you have the patience to train one? Foxes can come across as neurotic, destructive and very smelly. They have instincts to tear things up, cache food, get into everything of interest and scent mark. They can be very playful, mischievous and loud. They can be difficult to housebreak. Depending on the fox, despite how cute it may have seemed while young, if it has a strong instinct to flee it can become a very stressed animal. I've read that gentler foxes that have been selectively bred as pets for a few generations are easier to manage, but then it can be tricky to find one. When it comes to exotics how do you know if you have a good breeder or someone only looking for profit? These are things I particularly recall involving red foxes.
Someone used to breed Fennec Foxes on Vancouver Island. They're tiny and adorable and they seem to be much more manageable as a pet but still will have instincts to dig, scent mark and potentially could have fragile nerves or prefer to be mellow on its own.
The only foxes that I know of that seem to bear up extremely well to being treated as pets are the silver foxes that were selectively bred in a Russian genetics experiment, where only the tamest foxes were selected in trying to create an animal that was easier for fur farmers to handle. After about 50 years they succeeded in getting tamer foxes, yet in various foxes their features had started to become more dog-like, involving features like floppy ears, curled tails and white markings. The fur farm aspect had failed but they learned some very interesting things involving genetics and domestication. Sibfox is the company that acts as the go-between for the Institute and general public for these "siberian foxes" and will ship them to North America, but it is all so very very expensive.
Another matter would be if you have any vets nearby or within a reachable distance who could treat a pet fox. What about neutering/spaying and vaccinations?
