Once agian, I have never seen a wolf with blue eyes...I have seen yellow, orange, brown, amber, green, grey but never bright sky blue like in a husky or a malamute.

Most animals with blue eyes are hybrids or have dog ancestery in them...

The only 'wolf' I've seen with blue eyes was an animated wolf in a film.

While it is very uncommon, to say pure wolves never have blue eyes is an entirely false statement. There are anomalies present in all types of living things. The following is from one of many wolf information sites that say basically the same thing:
Most wolf pups are born with blue eyes, which gradually change to a yellow-gold color by eight to sixteen weeks, though sometimes their eyes can change color much later. Occasionally, a mature wolf will be found with blue eyes.
Personally, I find immense beauty in wolves' eyes regardless of their colour...

I have seen, up close, a wolf with blue eyes. I don't he is blind or have any dog in him. Here is a page about him:

it was obviously photoshopped. its common knowledge that wolves cant have blue eyes, its only a thing that comes in dogs. Perhaps the wolf had dog in it from far back. its usually very hard to tell if a wolf has a small bit of dog in it.
I am afraid to say I have quit Wolfquest.

"Wolves are usually born with deep blue eyes which lighten and then gradually fade into the adult eye color over the next six to ten weeks. A mature Wolf's eyes are often amber/brown or gold, but also commonly come in hues of brown, gray, yellow, and green. It is interesting to note that puppies are born with blue eyes, while mature Wolves do not retain blue as an eye color. Huskies often have blue eyes, and because of this people think there must be blue eyed Wolves as well, but this isn't true. If you see a Wolf with blue eyes then he or she is likely a Wolf-hybrid and not a full-blooded Wolf."
Adult wolves cant have blue eyes, pups can.

OKay, if you don't know why, why support it?
If they can have it as pup why not as adults.
