Kings Play Cards On Fat Guys' Stomachs Not that hard to remember Canis lupus familiaris, shouldn't be that hard to remember Canis vulpes zerda. If it only has two names, guys... it's the genus and species. Not the family. So, yes, foxes belong to the family canidae and the genus vulpes. They aren't dogs, but they ARE canines. And since when most people talk about canines or K-9, they're referring to dogs - typically vicious ones, at that (I mean, who calls a cute little puggle a canine? such a beautifully vicious word) - it's not too far of a stretch that NoA will try to call it the dog pokemon.
