We’ve been contacted by quite a few people who mistakenly believe that we breed Alaskan Klee Kai. Some of these folks believe that the AKK and the Mini Husky are essentially the same, but this isn’t true at all.
What is a Miniature Siberian Husky?
A Mini Husky is a non-standard sized Siberian Husky. This means that our huskies are smaller. Our dogs are bred to grow between 12-16 inches in height from the withers, and 18-25lbs. These guys aren’t teacup huskies, but they are the right size to go everywhere with their families and be an active part of their families lives.
How is This Different from the Klee Kai?
The AKK was developed by Linda Spurlin. This dog is sometimes referred to as a mini husky, but this is not correct. An Alaskan Husky and American Eskimos were used to create this breed. These dogs are not smaller Siberian Huskies; they’re an entirely different breed with a different temperament and different traits. These dogs also come in three different sizes, whereas the Mini Huskies size range is more limited.
The temperaments are a key component in the differences between the dogs. Our dogs, like standard sized sibes, are more social, whereas the Klee Kai is historically much more reserved with strangers
We do hope this clears up any confusion between the Alaskan Klee Kai and the Miniature Siberian Husky. These dogs are members of two different breeds and the names should not be used interchangeably.
