Fritz, Klee Kai ARE a registered breed. They're listed under the United Kennel Club and rare breed registry. They are not in the AKC yet (which is fine by most breeders) because there simply are not enough of them. However the dogs have bred true for many decades and compete in a wide range of sports and activities. They're gaining a lot of popularity as agility dogs. Talah's mother was the number one confirmation AKK in the nation.

As for Pomskys...naughty

A standard Alaskan Klee Kai might fit your needs nicely.

Choosing the Right Dog > Tiller!! Alaskan Klee Kais?

Oh, and to expand after going back and re-reading. I highly doubt ANY reputable breeder would allow a breeding quality intact AKK to leave the country. An altered pet AKK, sure, but they only allow their dogs to be bred if the person is being closely mentored and has extensive experience, etc. Once the AKK is a year of age it is required by the parent club to undergo genetic health testing, temperament testing, and checked for correctness before it is even considered for breeding. And only miniatures and standards should be bred, not toys. As I said, this is a protective bunch.

Checking with the breeders directory that someone posted above is probably your best bet. We have a few active groups on Facebook, but the better breeders aren't always super active there, more like lurkers, lol. And all AKK breeders are not created equal, some produce dogs with a much more timid temperament than others. They can often be very similar to having a feral fox in the ring.

Feel free to pm me, or I can answer your questions here to the best of my knowledge. Honestly you mentioning someone wanting to expand the breed to South Korea surprised me, the US breeders are VERY protective of their dogs, and they are extremely rare outside of the US, though there are a couple of UK breeders as well.

Talah had surgery on both knees earlier this year, and has also been on bed rest in the past for a broken leg, and my poodle had an ACL tear, so me and surgeries and recoveries are old pals. She will need to be crated at all times except potty brakes for a minimum of 6 weeks, your vet ought to send you home with an instruction sheet. All potty breaks must be on leash and no more than a quick out to pee, back in the crate.

If you can guarantee she'll be good and sit and not move, she can sit on the couch with you, but I wouldn't recommend this until after a week or two because she'll be so sore and susceptible to jostling. There's no reason you can't leave her crated while you're gone unless she isn't crate trained and goes berserk, but honestly that first week or two she'll be so drugged up she is unlikely to be jumpy.

I'd recommend a fluffy easy to wash blanket in the crate so she has plenty of cushioning. Also, look into some calming chews to keep her quiet, I like Pet Naturals of Vermont and Ark Naturals. Invest in a few puzzle type toys that you can stuff her kibble or wet food in and I'd feed all of her meals this way so she's at least getting some mental exercise. Once Talah was a bit more stable I used a front chest carrier so she could still go out on walks with us, something like this or a stroller might be a good option, as long as she'll stay calm in it.

The most important thing really is STRICT crate rest. She shouldn't EVER be out of the crate unless on leash pottying. There's no walking about the house, socializing, sleeping in bed with you, etc. Only the crate for many weeks. Otherwise her recovery can't be guaranteed and she might be crippled forever, plus you just wasted a ton of money.

For Christmas you could take her crate with you and put her somewhere quiet, or if she'll behave herself she could be in the main room with everyone, still in her crate, if you think she'll be too excitable, I'd leave her at home.

Yeah that makes it sound even sketchier. I'm sure the tag knows the cat isn't its target and won't affect it...

And the swallowing thing just sound scary.

The loose stools probably started the problem, and it's been building up for awhile. If you're not comfortable doing it I'd just take him in and let the techs do it since they know the drill, they'll also be able to do it internally so they'll fully empty.

However, to answer your question, I did Tanuk's by myself a good bit of the time. If hubby was home he'd hold his head straight and that was it. I would wrap my left arm under his rear legs, in the "man zone," so that he couldn't sit down, and just do it real quick with my right hand in a latex glove. It's a good idea to bathe him afterwards.

Wanted to add, Roxy I didn't realize you had gotten a Malamuppy! I remember us discussing them way back, sorry to hear about what happened though. hug

Such a cruddy time for an accident too, he's right in the middle of adolescence, which can be a beast. That might be part of the crabbiness you're seeing. Tanuk went through a pretty drastic personality change at around 18 months.
