The strange part of this is that is actually showing little fear of humans...not showing rabid tendencies but more like domestic tendencies .. sitting in people yards and on porches and wagging its tail.. it’s kind of like the neighborhood pet Image

If it's acting like that it's almost certainly an escape from a fur farm, perhaps one that somebody even tried to turn into a pet. Take a look at this link, you'll see a fox that looks a lot like the one you photographed -- http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160912 ... -the-world

Gary fox are occasionally either exhibit melanism (dark pigment) or leucism (pale coloration). There may be a fur farm somewhere raising gray fox rather than red fox or arctic fox, but probably not.

Yeah I’d say silver fox. More common in the forests of northern Canada. Pretty much all the red fox in southern prairies are the typical red variety.
