List of all WoD Alpha datamined pets
Playing Dress Up
A new Perky Pug outfit was datamined, in addition to the two we recently mentioned. Get ready to cower in awe and fear, it's a "Yipp-Saron" Costume!
It's still unclear where these new outfits will come from, however an NPC that resides at the Pet Menagerie inside your garrison might be a good candidate.
Lio the Lioness is a vendor that sells the same Perky Pug hats as Whizzig from the Timeless Isle, so she may have these newest costumes for sale as well.
In addition to pet outfits and treats, you can also purchase the new leveling battle-stones from Lio. One thing to note is that she only accepts Pet Charms as payment for her wares. It's still unknown how these charms can be obtained, but it's likely related to the pet trainer daily from your garrison.
Safari Hat Update
Last month we reported some awesome changes to the Safari Hat. Unfortunately, the hat has been excluded from the Toy Box as of the latest beta patch.
However, developer Jonathan LeCraft clarified that the hat will continue to function in its updated form despite being removed from the Toy Box. You'll be able to wear your Safari Hat without fear of misplacing your main helm in WoD.
So continue to save an inventory spot for the Safari Hat — it will come in handy with all of the new pets coming in the expansion!
