Did You Know?
In the 1970s, breeder Linda Spurlin fell in love with an undersized Husky and set out to offer the world the perfect pet. She secretly bred Alaskan and Siberian huskies with small Nordic spitz-type dogs like the Schipperke and the American Eskimo dog. The result was the adorable Alaskan Klee Klai.
Though their size makes them the preferred choice to keep in small apartments, they still need lots of walking as they have boundless energy and retain a Husky’s strong hunting instincts. The American Kennel Club have yet to classify the Alaskan Klee Klai. But many who’ve had one will tell you it’s their intelligence and potential to be great family pets that make them such a rare breed.
