A little about the Alaskan Klee Kai

The Alaskan Klee Kai originated as a cross between Alaskan and Siberian Huskies to be a 'mini husky', in fact, 'Klee Kai' means 'little dog' in Inuit. It is a highly intelligent breed that does well in obedience and agility competitions. It has a striking appearance, where its eyes are often of different colours. However, it can be reserved with strangers, requires lots of socialisation and like many Huskies can be quite vocal.




The Alaskan Klee Kai can be predisposed to the following conditions: Juvenile Cataracts, Patellar Luxation, Factor VII Deficiency, Liver Disease, Hypothyroidism, and Cardiac Disease.
