Alaskan Klee Kai

Home / Term / A / Alaskan Klee Kai

Having a wedged-shaped head featuring a masked face, pricked ears, and a double coat, the Alaskan Klee Kai is a small version of the Alaskan Husky. This breed of dog was developed in Wasilla Alaska in early 1988. It was developed with the Siberian Husky and Alaskan Huskies using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dogs. They were bred in private until they were released to the public in 1988.
The Alaskan Klee Kai has a well-furred tail that curls over the back or either side when the dog is alert or moving. One striking feature of the Alaskan Klee Kai is the facial mask that is visible due to its contrasting colors. They are intelligent dogs with high activity although not hyper-dogs. They can be trained and they make good watchdogs. Sometimes they can be people-shy but they do have a good sense of humor sometimes playing tricks on their owners.
They often need a large amount of interaction with their owners and their small size makes them
fit for dog owners who want small, but active dogs.  The Alaskan Klee Kai is naturally a hunter;
hence, they should not be raised with cats or smaller pets.
