Q:

Is there a dog breed called a miniature husky?

A:

The Alaskan Klee Kai is often called a miniature husky, although that is not the official breed name. It closely resembles the Siberian husky, but it ranges in size between toy, miniature and standard.

Alaskan Klee Kai range in height from 13 to 17 inches, and they usually weigh between 5 and 22 pounds. They are affectionate, alert, loyal and loving dogs, according to PetMD. Alaskan Klee Kai have three color varieties: red and white, gray and white, and black and white. There are Alaskan pure white Klee Kai, but that coloring disqualifies them from the breed standard as of 2014.
