Notes
 

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a northern breed of dog in the spitz family. The term "Klee Kai" was derived from Eskimo words meaning "Small Dog". The breed was developed to create a companion sized version of the Siberian Husky, resulting in an energetic, intelligent, apartment-sized dog with an appearance that reflects it's northern heritage.

History

The breed was developed in Wasilla, Alaska during the mid-1970s by Linda S. Spurlin after she observed the result of an accidental mating of an Alaskan Husky and a small dog. The breed was developed with Siberian and Alaskan Huskies using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog to bring down the size without dwarfism. Originally called the "Klee Kai," the breed split into "Alaskan Klee Kai" and "Klee Kai" for political reasons in 1995. The breed consolidated under the new name in 2002.
