How To Tame and Breed Foxes introduced in Minecraft

Silk Touch Enchantment in Minecraft

Foxes are in Minecraft, and you have the opportunity to tame them. It takes a bit of time to do this, though, but by the end of this, you’ll have a little fox following you around who shall remain loyal to you.

Taming a Fox in Minecraft

The first thing you need to do is locate two foxes in your Minecraft world. You can find them in the taiga, giant taiga, and snowy taiga regions. When a fox spawns in the snowy region, they show up as white instead of the traditional orange and white fur.

If you encounter them during the day, you’ll find them asleep, while during the evening and late-night, they’re far more active. The best time to go after them is likely going to be during the day, so they don’t immediately run away from you.

After you’ve located the two you’re after, locate some sweet berries. You’re going to need as many as you can find, so fill up your inventory with a good amount of them.

Pen The Two Together

You want to feed both foxes the sweet berries to have them fall in love and breed. Keep close while feeding them the sweet berries.

Continue to feed the two of them until they have hearts over their heads. If you wait long enough, the pair should breed and produce a child. The offspring should trust you immediately and will remain loyal to you. However, a baby fox can run away with an adult fox if they’re closer together. To make it easier, pull the parents away from the newborn or keep them all in a pen until the baby grows up. It will grow up to remain loyal to you, but feed them additional sweet berries to have them become your pet.

You can repeat this process as many times as you’d like to create an army of foxes, loyal to you.
