The pure white pup is a reward unlocked when a player's wolf has earned 15,000 experience points. This puppy has a black nose, blue eyes, and faint traces of browns and grays in its fur. In comparison to an ordinary white-coated pup its coat appears much brighter, making it easy to tell apart from its littermates.
This pup is unique in that it replaces the fourth member of the litter and will be born regardless of the coloration of the parents' coats.
- This puppy is often incorrectly referred to as an albino.
- Contrary to popular belief, the pure white puppy is not albino. Albinism has not yet been observed in wild wolf packs nor verified in captive wolves and because an affected animal has reduced odds of survival, few albino specimens have been known to make it into adolescence without living in captivity for the rest of their lives. True albinos have red or pink eyes, along with pink skin (including lips and nose) due to lack of pigment.
- Most albino specimens are born blind.
- Leucism is a similar genetic trait that is often confused with albinism (and vice versa). Leucism is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in multiple types of pigment, not just melanin.
- Gray wolves rarely have unmarked pure white coats. Those that possess white, light gray or cream coats often have other markings on their bodies, tails and/or heads.
