Description

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller version of the Alaskan Husky, though it physically resembles the Siberian Husky. It is between 10-40 pounds (4.3-18 kg), comes in 3 size varieties and 3 colors.

Temperament

Alaskan Klee Kais shed, bark and have a high energy level, therefore not making them ideal choices for everyone. Without the proper amount of daily and physical exercise they can become high strung. However, if in an appropriate home, the Klee Kai can be a wonderful companion. They are friendly but somewhat reserved with strangers. Socialize well. Docile and very loving, they need the humans around them to be calm but firm, confident and consistent pack leaders. Do not allow the Alaskan Klee Kai to develop Small Dog Syndrome.

"Temmie the Alaskan Klee Kai as a puppy at 8 weeks old. A little spitfire with lots of attitude! Super smart and good at manipulating her owners. She has more self-awareness than our other dog. You can constantly see her trying to puzzle out different situations. The breeder estimated her to be about 15 lbs full grown."
