Alaskan Klee Kai

 

Origin:

 

The Alaskan Klee Kai was developed in Alaska in the early 1970s. They are energetic and intelligent, you can see their northern heritage in their appearance. However, unlike the Siberian Husky, the Alaskan Klee Kai were bred as companion dogs rather than sled dogs.

History

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a relatively new breed that looks like a smaller version of the Siberian Husky, and even the name “Klee Kai” comes from an Inuit term meaning “small dog.” While Alaskan Klee Kais resemble larger Husky breeds, they have some key differences, especially when it comes to temperament, that distinguish it from its ancestor working class dogs of the north. This breed is more suited to the life of a companion, though the Alaskan Klee Kai shares the high energy of the Huskies and demands plenty of exercise Alaskan Klee Kais are loving, loyal, sweet and enjoy giving their owners affection.
