A wolf's pup eye color will change when the pup is 8-16 weeks old, of course this is a general number, but some of the pups can develope their eye color earlier or later. The bluish color of the eyes will fade gradually with days, along with pup developement, the days this process takes depends of the animal, I don't really have information of the exact days this takes.
