What Husky Breed Is My Pup?

A small Husky puppy.Just brought this angel home. The rescue didn't know her exactly what breed she is and thought I'd ask on here. Really appreciate any responses! My sister said Alaskan Klee Kai, but I think she looks like a Siberian.

I believe she is too young to really be able to tell the difference as they are 'related' and both breeds share a lot of similar traits.


Puppies change so quickly that it is difficult to even guess when they are so young.
Perhaps when she is a little older you can submit pictures again and maybe receive more helpful information.
Pictures for identification should be of the dog standing with a full shot of their sides showing the full body structure as well as their fur, tail and head. Another picture of full face as well as age when pictures taken and height and length.

One of the difference between Alaskan & Siberian is the Alaskan is a mixed breed while the true bred Siberian is a special breed recognized by the AKC. This would tend to make it more likely that your baby is Alaskan as not too many people will give up a valuable Siberian (unless it is a mix).

"Siberian Husky and Alaskan Husky difference is due to the Alaskan Husky being a mixed breed and the Siberian being a pure breed.


The Siberian's coat may be medium-length, so a bit longer than some Alaskans.
Alaskan Husky vs Siberian Husky size;
You can expect a Siberian Husky to reach 40-50 pounds and 22-23 inches tall at the shoulder.
Alaskan Huskies reach anywhere from 35 to 60 pounds at maturity, and they usually are shorter than Siberians.
However, in both cases, the females stay smaller than males."

The only way to tell for sure is to have a DNA test completed. Test kits can be purchased online, pet stores and vets.

This is an important time in your pups life so be sure to have all of her first year shots/vaccinations to protect her from all the diseases floating around. Her paperwork should show what she has already had.

It is very difficult to tell exactly the breed of your puppy from photos without knowing the age and size. Puppies of these breeds at such a small age look very similar.


The Alaskan Klee Kai is a tiny dog that looks just like a miniature Husky and was developed in the 1970s by crossing a Husky with smaller breeds like Schipperkes and Alaskan Eskimo Dogs. At first this breed was called simply Klee Kai, which means little dog in the Inuit language, in 1995, the name was changed to Alaskan Klee Kai. This breed is sometimes referred to as the American Klee Kai. This breed is not recognized as a separate breed by the American Kennel Club. The United Kennel Club recognized the Alaskan Klee Kai in 1997.
The Alaskan Klee Kai indeed is a small dog - weighing only 13-22 pounds and standing at 15-17 inches tall.
But there are three varieties of this dog food, differing in size:
Toy Variety: up to 13 pounds
Miniature Variety: 13 to 16 pounds
Standard Variety: 15 to 22 pounds.

The Siberian Husky originated in Northeast Asia and was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1930.


Siberian Huskies are medium-sized dogs that grow up to be about 35-60 pounds and 20-24 inches tall (females are smaller and lighter).

To understand what breed your puppy has, compare your puppy's size to the Growth and Weight Charts of the two breeds:,
A DNA test will help you to finally determine the breed.
