We got our first Alaskan Klee Kai in 2008.  

WARNING!  DO NOT GET SCAMMED!

Many people are being scammed by puppymills and unethical breeders!

What is an Alaskan Klee Kai?

Klee Kai are a UKC registered breed,developed in the 1970's.  True breeders of AKK will NOT use other breeds or mixed breeds in their breeding program! AKK are not a mix of a Shiba, Husky, Pomeranian or any other breed. Because of their attractive look and small size many backyard breeders and puppy mills are trying to acquire them.  If they are not able to get an Alaskan Klee Kai they are attempting to create their own. You will find them listed as Klee Kai blends or Pomsky, Miniature Husky,etc…  Some of these mixes are not even small in size, but are 30-40 pounds as adults, the size of a smaller Siberian Husky.  Many do not look like an AKK when they are adults.  As with most back yard breeders or puppy mills they will not be doing any health testing on the parents. They are using photos of other breeds to promote their puppies and are charging twice what a purebred Alaskan Klee Kai would cost.  Alaskan Klee Kai puppies typically cost $1800 to $3000. The price varies according to size, coat type and coat and eye color.

Always make sure the parents of your puppy are UKC registered. All of our dogs are UKC registered and PR (Purple Ribbon) bred meaning all their ancestors in their pedigrees were UKC registered Alaskan Klee Kai. If possible go to the breeders and meet the breed.  See how big the parents are and in what condition the dogs are kept.  There are several breeders in MN advertising Klee Kai puppies that are selling mixed breed puppies.  Some of these are over 30 pounds.  If you are looking for a mixed breed puppy there are always many husky mixes available in local shelters.

We got our first Alaskan Klee Kai in 2008.  Klee Kai have a personality that is quite different from the Shiba.  They are very curious, playful and like a husky can be destructive.  They can also be quite vocal.  Unlike Siberian Huskies they are very cautious with strangers.  They may come up to sniff you or touch their nose to your hand, but typically will not jump all over a new person wanting to be petted.  In fact, most klee Kai prefer not to be touched by strangers at all.  They are very loving with their family.

The Alaskan Klee Kai comes in 3 sizes:

Height: Standard 15 - 17.5 inches (38 - 42 cm)
Height: Miniature 13 - 15 inches (33 - 39 cm)
Height: Toy under 13 inches (33 cm)


Our Klee Kai typically fall in the 13" to 17" range and it is difficult to tell as puppies their exact adult size and weight as some have a slim build and others are chubby and even though 2 may be the same height their weight can be different by as much as 7 pounds.

Klee Kai can also have two different coat types.  The standard coat is shorter, while the full coat is very fluffy.

Below are a bunch of photos of our Klee Kai.

A Bit About Color:

Alaskan Klee Kai are recognized in all colors as long as there is a contrast between the color and light markings.  There are three basic colors, Black & White, Gray and White and Red and White.  There are various shades in each color.  The breed standard calls for them to be "Masked" with the color extending down the bridge of the nose and around the eyes being the most desirable, though lighter markings on the face are acceptable.  The mask should not be asymmetrical and the color on the bridge of the nose should not extend down the side of the muzzle. Many of the puppies with color extending down the sides of the muzzle are mixed breed puppies and buyers should be cautious and ask about UKC registration on the parents of these dogs.  Pure white or pinto marked dogs are not accepted for show or breeding,

Black & White: This is the classic color for most people when they think of a husky.  There are many variations from a jet black to a light shaded black.  A black & white puppy is born black & white.  The undercoat varies from black to a smoky gray.  Below are some photos of black & white puppies we have had.

Baby-  Arctikkai's Mikayla 2013

Gray and White:  Gray and white puppies have a much lighter undercoat compared to black & whites.  At birth they appear gray and white.  The undercoat color varies from a gray to almost white in silver gray pups. A lot of gray puppies also have a beige or even tan tint to their undercoat.   At 6-8 weeks they can appear very light but as the guard hairs come in they will darken up. See our adult photos to see how much the color darkens!   Below are some photos of gray and white puppies we have had.
 
 
 
 
Red and White: Red and white dogs vary from a deep copper red to a dilute frosty red.   We do not have any red and white Klee Kai but since we have two males out of red and white dogs we may have some in the future!
