On one hand, it gets its name from Hyenas, which are closer to cats than dogs.
On the other, it evolves from Poochyena, who's name is a hybrid of canine and feline related animals, and both pokemon have a dog's body.
Alternate third option: He walks a fine line between Caniforms and Feliforms. Kinda like a bisexual with orientation. --- I am here to promote the discussion and appreciation of Fennekin.

I think I appreciate Fennekin less now. --- From when I land to when I leave there is enough time to sleep and sing. I keep running around, when all I want is to lay motionless.
