Animals that come in all white are primarily referred to as "Albino," however there are many animals that are not albino and still have white coats to them, as follows:
  • Domestic cats and breeds such as:
    • Mixed-breed shorthair
    • Persian
    • Manx
  • Various breeds of domestic dogs such as:
    • German Shepherd
    • Poodle (Giant, Standard and Mini)
    • Chihuahua
    • American Eskimo
    • Samoyed
    • West Highland Terrier
    • Pomeranian
    • Shi Tzus
    • Great Pyrenees
  • Domestic cattle breeds such as
    • Charolais
    • Chianina
    • Marchigiana
    • Nguni
  • Domestic horses
    • Most commonly called "grey," since the genetics for a true-white horse result in death of the foal upon birth; however there are horses that can be--appearances, mainly--all white, such as horses of the Criollo colouration.
  • Polar Bear
  • Moose that are tick-infested so that all the dark guard hairs had fallen out
  • Snowy Owl
  • Spirit Bear (subspecies of the American Black Bear)
  • Snow Geese
  • Tundra Swans
  • Domestic Geese
  • Domestic Cucks
  • Domestic Chickens (most common breed is the Leghorn)
  • Mountain Goat
  • Snowshoe Hare (winter coat)
  • Arctic Hare (winter coat)
  • Ptarmigan (winter plumage)
  • White-tailed Jack Rabbit (winter coat)
  • Weasel (winter coat)
  • Cattle egret
  • Arctic Fox

And many, many more...
