Alaskan Klee Kai Breed Information

The History of the Alaskan Klee Kai

The Alaskan Klee Kai (pronounced KLEE-ki) means "small dog" in an Eskimo dialect. The Alaskan Klee Kai was developed in the 1970s by Linda Spurlin. Located in Wasilla, Alaska, she used 4 breeds in the creation of the Alaskan Klee Kai: the Alaskan husky, Siberian husky, Schipperke and American Eskimo and the result was a miniature husky.

The Alaskan Klee Kai (AKK) was accepted into the American Kennel Club's Foundation Stock Services (AKC FSS) in October of 2020.

Coat Colors

The Alaskan Klee Kai coat colors can be various shades of black and white, gray and white, red and white, or all white. The variations in the coats of Alaskan Klee Kai puppies can often be guessed by the coats of the sire and dam, but not with complete accuracy. Genetics in dogs, just as in humans, play a massive role and recessive genes turning up along breed lines that have been fairly heterochromatic otherwise has certainly happened.
