In the footage, Mikayla can be heard asking: 'Are you gonna laugh for me?' as she playfully grabs at Dixie.

The fox, clearly enjoying herself, responds by letting out a barrage of squeaky 'laughs' as she gently wraps her powerful jaws around Mikayla's hand.

'Tickle tickle!' is the wildlife rescuers response, as she continues to play with the red fox by rubbing underneath her chin. 

Dixie continues to close her eyes and makes an amazing high-pitched noise that closely mirrors a child's laugh. 

As the clip nears an end and she has exhausted her last giggle, Dixie springs to her feet and rushes off, showcasing her wonderfully fluffy winter coat.

Dixie is one of the residents of Save A Fox rescue service, a domestic rescue center which allows space for foxes, mink and other animals they rescue to 'feel wild'. 

The foxes, which are usually rescued from fur farms, are doted on and even given cuddles with Mikayla. 

The animals they save are mostly born in captivity and can't be returned to nature, instead roaming its large grounds. 

Ms Raines has previously stated: 'We rescue foxes from many different situations. 

'We rescue sick, injured, and orphaned foxes from fur farms. Ones that the farmers believe would not make it.

'We take in surrendered foxes that were once pets and originally came from breeders. We also take in and rescue found pet foxes.

'I do not breed my foxes. I only rescue them to take care of any health issues, spay, or neuter and find them good homes.'
