Wolves and high-content wolfdogs are never born white. Regardless of subspecies (timber/gray, Arctic, etc.) all will be born black, brown, or dark gray, with no defined facial markings or other visible coat patterns. They gradually phase into their adult coloration as they mature, and may experience further phasing throughout their lives.
Pictured above are the stages in coloration change for a true high-content wolfdog. The pup starts out a uniform brown, and, over the course of a year or so, it slowly loses the dark pigmentation, giving way to the true hue of its adult coat.
Beware of breeders selling wolfdogs with high content claims if the pups are born white, or if they display prominent markings. Real wolves and high-content wolfdogs are always born a solid dark color, despite breeders’ claims to the contrary. Several generations of captive breeding will not undo what tens of thousands of years of evolution have wrought.
