There are two aspects to the cost: the purchase price and the cost of maintenance. The video on this page covers both aspects in relation to owning this dog breed in America. The presenter seems trustworthy and I believe that he knows what he’s talking about so without further ado I present is video below. FYI, the mini-husky is the Alaskan Klee Kai. The breed was developed in the late 20th century and is a smaller version of the Alaskan husky as its description implies. They are intelligent and energetic and their weight ranges from 5 to 22 pounds when adult. The breed name Klee Kai means “little dog” in the Inuit language.
Linda Spurlin in Alaska developed the breed in the 1970s. The dog is a multi-hybrid created by crossing the Alaskan husky, Siberian husky and other small dogs of a similar body conformation. On a less than pleasant note, it appears that Spurlin used tough selective breeding to create this dog. It is said that she “culled” the dogs that held back the quality of her breed. However, the word “cull” in this context does not mean to kill but to remove from the breeding line. I hope that she did this.
