I'm looking at building a pen to keep a fox in next fall. Does anyone have an idea of the dimensions that I should look at building? I just want to keep one.

Make sure you check your regulations closely. Any commercial pen designed for a collie size dog should be fine. You can get the deme sounds from it and build your own if you wish.

Is the pen to be elevated or on the ground?

I don't know, thats what I'm looking for. I'm starting from scratch so it can be either.

If on the ground you will need a buried wire bottom. If elevated you should have some sort of flooring as not to let their paws get sore from traveling on the wire all the time. The plus side of an elevated pen is the capability of collecting fresh urine. Just install a tin trough beneath with it running into a strainer protected bucket.
