Alaskan Klee Kai

Alaskan Klee Kai

The Alaskan Klee Kai is certainly an attention-getter. This breed looks every bit like a Husky but weighs only 10-15 pounds. They are social creatures with a high amount of energy despite their size. Unlike the Husky, these dogs were bred to be companions and family pets.

About this Breed

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a small, spirited, spitz-type dog that will surely grab the attention of onlookers. They look like miniature Siberian Huskies, but surely differ in personality. The breed originated in Alaska during the 1970’s. They were created by breeding Alaskan and Siberian Huskies to Schipperkes and American Eskimo Dogs to make a small, Husky-looking dog. The Alaskan Klee Kai is a high-energy, intelligent, and social dog. These dogs will certainly shed. They make wonderful companions and family pets so long as they are socialized properly.
