The Arctic Wolf is a members-only land animal that was first released in October 2012. It was originally available only as a promotional gift when redeeming specific Arctic Wolf Gift Cards that included a three-month Membership. It was released again on May 30, 2014, as one of the animals sold in the Diamond Shop. It is a part of the Jolly Jamaalidays Bundle by purchasing a website membership during December 2018. On July 30, 2020, it was released as part of the Doggone Bundle.

Default Appearance

The default coloring has maroon-pink ears on the outside with an outside light pink color, a white overcoat, and a light gray undercoat. The eyes are shaped like half-moons with a white dot in the center and a black outline. This differs from the default artwork that shows a blue-gray overcoat, a white undercoat, and blue-gray eyes.


Acts Description
Sits much like a wolf, but in a taller and stronger pose with its tail raised.
A more relaxed version of the hula. Twisting its body from side to side, and its arms smoothly following the sway of hips, slightly moving its paws as it dances. The tail shakes rapidly as if it's in the wind as it dances, too.
Lays down in a loose, curled position, head rested on front paws, chest rising and falling softly and slowly.
Hops up and down, tail bobbing and paws kicking out; seems almost like an in-place leap.
Rolls on the ground playfully, much like a dog; shakes out fur and rolls again.
