Red Fox mixed with Dog

I have read this is impossible due to the difference in number of chromosomes. However, I must say that it is possible. I grew up on a farm in Michigan and we found a little abandoned kit in tree stump in the woods. We lived on over 200 acres. He later mated with our mixed breed dog and none of the puppies were sick or died. Has anyone on this board experienced the same? As a side note for animal rights people: We saved the kits life and he was a loyal companion for over 15 years. He brought us joy and we brought him joy. Other fox would visit him in the early morning hours often. He was kept outside and never ran away.

@TeeDee,
Photos would be helpful. How do you know your mixed breed dog didn't just breed with another dog, and become pregnant that way?

They are the same Genus of animal, I believe, though some say more closely related in some respects to a cat... That is tremendously long for a fox to live... In the wild 4 to 6 years may be the average... A show on foxes in England I believe said they found a 9 year old vixon on the road, that she had only one tooth left, and they thought she was living on earth worms.... I saw one in norther Michigan near the shore under a street lamp scarfing up mayflies...You can see robbins with so many in their beaks they look like they are carrying a ball of yarn all fluffed out...
