Appearance The Alaskan Klee Kai is a small version of the Alaskan Husky, with a wedge-shaped head featuring a striking masked face, prick ears, and a double coat. The length of body is just slightly longer than the height. The tail is well-furred and curls over the back or to either side when the dog is alert or moving. The appearance of the Alaskan Klee Kai reflects the breed’s Northern heritage
Temperament The Alaskan Klee Kai is very curious, active, quick and agile. His loyalty and alertness make the Alaskan Klee Kai an excellent watchdog who may be territorial despite his small size. While affectionate with family members, the Alaskan Klee Kai is reserved and cautious with strangers and in unfamiliar situations.
The Alaskan Klee Kai may be the perfect dog for some people, but it isn't a dog for everyone. Here's some things you should consider before bringing an AKK into your home. Like most dogs, without proper training they can be very destructive chewers, they are highly intelligent so the become bored easily. They seem to have an almost endless amount of energy and spend a lot of it getting into trouble unless you have the time to teach them appropriate ways of disposing of it. Chewing is one thing they will do to burn off energy, so is digging.
History The Alaskan Klee Kai was developed in Alaska by Linda Spurlin and her family, to be a companion-sized version of the Alaskan Husky. From the early 70’s through 1988, the Spurlins carefully selected dogs that met their high standards for appearance and soundness. In 1988, they made the Alaskan Klee Kai available to others. Mrs. Spurlin originally called her new breed the “Klee Kai,” but in 1995 it was changed to “Alaskan Klee Kai.” The Alaskan Klee Kai is still extremely rare. The Alaskan Klee Kai was recognized by the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) in 1995 and by the United
Kennel Club January 1, 1997
Health The breed has little health problems.
