The Alaskan Klee Kai is a fairly new dog breed. The developer of this breed, Linda Spurlin, began to breed small sized Alaskan Huskies in the mid 1970s. She liked the look of these small dogs so much that she developed a breed for them. The Alaskan Klee Kai is basically a miniature Alaskan Husky, developed as a companion dog as well as a show dog. The ancestors of this dog are the racing Alaskan Sled Dogs used today - the Alaskan Huskies - the dogs used for thousands of years by the people of interior Alaska. The name comes from the Eskimo words for "little dog". Because the breed is new, breeders adhere very closely to guidelines when allowing their babies to go on to enter the breeding pool. The Alaskan Klee Kai is recognized by the Federation of International Canines, the American Rare Breed Association, Canine Rarity Shows and of course the Alaskan Klee Kai Association of America. The most recent recognition has been by the United Kennel Club. Our dogs and litters are all UKC registered.
