Quick Answer

Full Answer

Miniature purebred Siberian Huskies have the same characteristics as the larger members of their breed in a smaller package. The Alaskan Klee Kai was developed from crossbreeding between Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Huskies and American Eskimos; some breeders also used the Schipperke. Alaskan Klee Kais come in standard, miniature and toy varieties and weigh 10 to 40 pounds. They have not yet been recognized by the American Kennel Club.
