Is there such thing as a small husky? "Wouldn't a smaller version of a Siberian Husky be so cute...?"
This question is more common than you think. And if you too are looking for a mini husky the bad news is that this variation of the breed does not exist. The good news is that there is a completely separate breed that is more commonly mistaken as a "mini husky" than anything else.
Huskies are typically between 40 and 70 pounds, while the Alaskan Klee Kai typically weighs 8 - 22 pounds. Klee Kais also need a lot of exercises just like huskies but are indeed better for apartment living. Obviously, they are smaller, but they also don't need quite as much intense exercise as huskies do. Overall they can be more manageable, but don't let that fool you into thinking they are not a demanding breed as well. Alaskan Klee Kais are smart, energetic, and need a strong-willed leader.
Klee Kais can have stunning blue eyes, and just like their husky counterparts can oftentimes have two different colored eyes
Once again, just like their husky counterparts, the Klee Kai is a natural athlete. Yet they are even more well suited for agility events, because of their small size and agility, and high-level focus.
If you are looking for a smaller husky, or have doubts about owning a husky with the exercise demands, then be sure to check out the Alaskan Klee Kai. They would be a better fit for apartment living, and probably a better fit for first-time dog owners as well. Be sure to "inquire about puppies" if you are interested in purchasing or adopting an Alaskan Klee Kai.
