Foxes will kill many more chickens than it can eat or take with them. There goes some folks idea of its just hungry. When a flock of chickens start going crazy when a fox appears the fox goes nuts and just grabs and kills each one it can. I've seen it happen many times. Secure coop at night, free range during the day and shoot or trap every fox that shows up. If you can't do it chickens may not be for you. Imo it's worse to keep chickens locked up in a tiny coop and run and never allowed to free range because you may be afraid of losing some.

Shooting it will stop that fox but soon enough a nother fox will take is place and start the cycle again
their are a few things i can think of
A) make a nice kennel for your doberman to sleep so that it will chase off any predators that try to get at them
B) it may sound gross but male urine sends hormones ect and it will deter it for a while
thats all i can think of right now but ill keep thinking
