    I looked at photos of both red and grey and I don't have a clue to what it is :-\ ???

    I think it's a grey fox, it's just not quite structurally right to be a red. Grey foxes as I've seen tend to have smaller more mousy heads and are smaller and more streamline then the reds. Also, the tail isn't right for a red I don't think. The way I'm looking at it is, if you took this into photoshop and replaced the blonde on the back with the standard grey/blue ticking like a grey fox has, it would match up. But hey, I could be wrong...just what I'm thinking...:p
     
  7. I am about 99% sure it is a gray.I had a normal gray beside it when I was skinning and they looked the same except for color.

    That's a gray, and a very strange colored one at that!!!

    It is definitely a gray.It is a mutation lacking some pigments-for sure melanin which is brown-black pigment.I think it would be called leucistic.Very neat.I've never seen one or even a picture.Similar to a blonde or cinnamon coon.Nice.
