FAQ Alaskan Klee Kai Edition
Tuesday, September 2, 2014
What kind of dog is that? What is she a mix between?
She is an purebred Alaskan Klee Kai.
Is that a puppy?
No, she's actually 2 years old and she is full grown at 8 pounds.
How big was she when you got here?
She was about 3 pounds.
Does she shed?
Twice a year she blows out her coat and sheds a lot but other than that it's not too bad.
Where do you get a dog like that?
Penny Lane is from California, however there are lots of breeders and a National Rescue just for AKKs that you can adopt one from. The breeder I used is Klee Kai Magic.
Does she have the same temperament as a big husky?
No. Klee Kais are typically very shy around strangers or anyone that isn't part of their immediate family or pack. Penny is, due to our very hard work, actually VERY friendly with strangers and not like your average AKK. Although she does tend to me timid with men especially when they don't know how to approach a dog.
Does she get along with other dogs? Specifically big dogs.
Yes! Penny loves other dogs and looooves to play.
Is a dog like that expensive?
They vary in price depending on which breeder you decide to go with and the quality of dog (pet vs show). I've seen them range in price between $1,500 and $2,500.
Does she howl?
She does sometimes but it's typically when somebody leaves the house. She wants to be with me or my mother at all times and if one of us leaves she gets really upset.
