My girlfriend & I were very curious about what is Eevee is based off of. It was supposed to be a type of fox or something, but I'm not quite positive about that, so in question, what is Eevee originally based off of?

Eevee's Normal type and Adaptability suggest that, rather than being any specific animal, Eevee is simply a generic mammal. It has traits of cats, dogs, foxes, rodents, and even primates. Eevee's evolutions also resemble generic mammals, but they are more specialized to their types: Jolteon strongly resembles a dog, while Espeon is more feline.

Eevee shares traits with foxes, more specifically the fennec fox, dogs and cats.


Or a tanooki, a racoon-dog.
Zigzagoon line shares traits with racoon
