Alaskan Klee Kei

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a reasonably modern miniaturized breed developed from Alaskan and Siberian Huskies in the 1970s after the breeder, Linda Spurlin saw an accidental mating between an Alaskan Husky and an unknown small dog and thought it would make the perfect pet. Breeding with small Nordic spitz-type dogs such as the Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog, she kept the miniaturization of the breed a secret until she was confident about their nature as a pet.
