Re: Mini huskies - this is REALLY bugging me..
Is this someone's attempt at a "Klee Kai." They were developed, I believe, in the late 70s for people who liked Siberian Huskies and the other arctic breeds, but wanted a "smaller dog." Quite frankly...Huskies (no matter if it's a Siberian or a sledding Alaskan Husky) and Malamutes were bred to do a particular job...not just look pretty. I thought that "they look pretty" was one of the top reasons why Huskies end up in shelters? "I fell in love with their blue eyes....but I couldn't handle the howling, digging, and escaping from the yard."
History of the "Klee Kai:"
The breed was developed in Wasilla, Alaska during the mid-1970s by Linda S. Spurlin after she observed the result of an accidental mating of an Alaskan Husky and an unknown small dog. The breed was developed with Siberian and Alaskan Huskies using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog to bring down the size without dwarfism. She bred these dogs in private until she released them to the general public in 1988. Originally called the "Klee Kai", the breed split into "Alaskan Klee Kai" and "Klee Kai" for political reasons in 1995. The breed consolidated under the new name in 2002. The Alaskan Klee Kai was officially recognized by the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) in 1995 and by the United Kennel Club (UKC) on January 1, 1997.
