Alaskan Klee Kai Puppies
Description: 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 their body is just slightly longer than the height. The Alaskan Klee Kai's 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. Alaskan Klee Kai's are an extremely rare breed, and they were bred directly from Alaskan Huskies, Siberian Huskies, American Eskimo Dogs and Schipperkes. Their markings are symmetrical. The Alaskan Klee Kai actually has three different sizes: Toy, Miniature and Standard. Alaskan Klee Kais are very affectionate and loyal to their families. They are wary of strangers, however, and but do not make good guard dogs. They do make good watchdogs, as they like to bark. Even though simply physical features make this breed inadequate for guarding, they are still rather protective of their family. They do need socialization and good handling so that they may get along better with children in the future. Finally, the Alaskan Klee Kai has been said to resemble a cat in their fastidiousness, as well as their high prey drive. The Alaskan Klee Kai, though rare, makes an exceptional pet.
