The Alaskan Klee Kai is a relatively new and rare breed that first came around in the mid 70s by chance. Klee kai is an Inuit term meaning “small dog”, and the breed comes in three sizes: standard, miniature, and toy. The Klee Kai is a mix of Siberian and Alaskan Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Schipperke, and American Eskimo. It has a double coat that is shed twice each year.
Though the Klee Kai most resembles its Husky heritage, it’s not a hyperactive dog. It is, however, highly active, intelligent, and somewhat vocal. They are known to be escape artists and to have a sense of humor as well as great hunting instincts. As a companion dog, the Klee Kai needs a large amount of interaction with its owner, and does not do well when left alone for long periods of time.
The Klee Kai is highly trainable and needs a moderate amount of exercise. They make great family dogs, but can be shy around strangers. They should be socialized well with both humans and other dogs from a young age to avoid shy or aggressive behavior. They can get along with cats but should not be left alone with smaller animals.
