The silver fox is a melanistic form of red fox. Melanism is when the animal's coloring is much darker than normal.  Interestingly, fox squirrels, who have brownish body fur and reddish tummy fur also have a melanistic form that resembles this.  I had a "black" fox squirrel that I hand raised.  He lived to be 12 years old, a full ten years longer than he would have in the wild.

Such A Beautiful Animal

Domesticated "Siberian" Fox: domesticated by a Russian scientist these foxes are tamer and will cost you about 7k. Very much like a dog but more agile and smarter than many breeds.
