What is the word for someone who like foxes?

I was suprised to find that I couldn't find a word to describe someone who likes foxes.

My first (half-joking) thought was simply "foxophile", but the purist in me rebels against that and thinks it should have a Greek root. "Alepou" appears to be the Greek word for fox, which suggests "alepophile" or "alepouphile" as the desired word. I asked on Quora, but the majority who've answered seem to be in favour of "foxophile" or "vulpophile" (or variants thereof).

Is there an existing word or more suitable form for someone who likes foxes?

Many Thanks
