Info on the Alaskan Klee Kai?

I was planning on getting a Husky but my parents say its to big. I need to know how much attention, food, and exercise they need. The dog would be home alone from around 7am to 3pm. Where can I get one in Kansas? If this dog does not work what other dog would work that looks like a Husky?

    Alaskan Klee Kai's shed, bark, and have a high energy level, therefore not making them ideal choices for everyone. Without the proper amount of daily and physical exercise they can become high strung. However, if in an appropriate home, the Klee Kai can be a wonderful companion. They are friendly but somewhat reserved with strangers. Socialize well. Docile and very loving, they need the humans around them to be calm but firm, confident and consistent pack leaders. Do not allow the Alaskan Klee Kai to develop Small Dog Syndrome.

    It has little health problems.Because of their size the can live in an apartment but a small yard is recommended.They should be taken on long daily walks.

    Please don't buy a dog based on looks alone. No dog is going to be really satisfied emotionally or physically being left alone for 8 hours a day. Please consider the dog in the situation not just your own wants.

    One place to look for AKK Breeders and AKK info is listed below.

    When you contact the breeders be sure to ask them your specific questions, they would be a good source for answers :)
