Hurm. Maybe..... A Fonix?
Because we ALL know phoenixes are awesome. Foxes are similair to wolves, my favorite animal, but a little smaller and it sounds better with phoenix.
Fonix are small, furry creatures with a fox's body, and then a phoenix's wings. The Fonix has the cry of a phoenix as well-- by cry I mean both song and healing tears. It can lift extreme weight, like Fawkes the phoenix, and is called to a human by loyalty. The Fonix is extremely clever, and has great eyesight and hearing. It's weaknesses are pain-- if there is too much pain around them, they burst into flames and stay as ashes for two days before reforming as a baby Fonix. If a Fonix encounters even the smallest pain, it is weakened-- and the fiery cry of a drake (dragon-snake). Although that probably already exists. If the Fonix hears the cry, it's mind will be full of flames for an unknown length of time.
