If you are thinking about getting an Alaskan Klee Kai, then one question you most likely have is how big do Alaskan Klee Kai get? If you are already the proud owner of an Alaskan Klee Kai puppy then you may be asking your breeder, what size will my Alaskan Klee Kai be full grown? Most people are not referring to height when they are asking about the Klee Kai size, they want to know how much their Klee Kai will weigh. Which makes sense because, this breed is the perfect apartment size dog breed and most apartments have weight restrictions for pets, not height restrictions.
The Alaskan Klee Kai come in 3 sizes. Toy, Miniature and Standard. The Alaskan Klee Kai are intended to remain a small to medium sized dog. The 3 sizes are distinguished by their height, not by their weight. We are often asked how much a toy size Klee Kai will weigh full grown. Since the size of the Klee Kai is not determined by their weight, but rather their height, we can only give an educated guess based on the puppies appearance and our experience over the last 16 years. We did a study on Alaskan Klee Kai weights of dogs we own or produced and will share the weight ranges for each size.
You would think the size of the pup would be based on the size of the parents. However, this is not necessarily the case. Alaskan Klee Kai breeders, as myself, will often breed a Toy to a Miniature, Miniature to a Standard and even a Toy to a Standard. Because the Alaskan Klee Kai are not only bred within their own size/variety (toy bred to toy, mini bred to mini and standard bred to standard) we are able to produce all 3 sizes of puppies even in the same litter. Additionally two standard size Klee Kai parents can produce toy size puppies and two toy size klee kai parents can produce standard size puppies.
