21 Adorable Pictures of Miniature Huskies
They’re just as fluffy, just as playful – some even have those mesmerizing blue eyes – but they’re all rolled up in a cute little package. We can’t get enough of them – and you won’t be able to either once you’ve seen these photos of mini huskies in action.
1. Beautiful Markings
You can easily spot a husky in the crowd thanks to their beautifully unique face markings – and mini huskies are no different! Check out the symmetry and fluffiness in this husky puppy’s model demeanour.

2. Heterochromia Eyes
This gorgeous snowy Pomsky (Pomeranian x Husky) is blessed with some pretty beguiling eyes. When dogs have different colored eyes, it’s called Heterochromia Iridum and is incredibly rare. We think it’s incredibly exotic too!
3. Alaskan Klee Kai
Not all dogs that are called mini huskies are actually miniature Siberian huskies – Professor Stark, below, is a Toy Alaskan Klee Kai, a mixed breed dog.
See how the Alaskan Klee Kai vs Mini Husky compares.
4. The Red Alaskan Klee Kai
Here’s another Alaskan Klee Kai but this time, it’s a much-desired red variation. The reds generally range from a foxy ginger to a more auburn brown color like this beautiful one below.
5. Regal and Composed
Mini huskies and AKKs are known for being just as regal and composed looking as full sized Siberian Huskies. These are alert, yet calm dogs, very intelligent with excellent memories.
6. Man’s Best Friend
Mini huskies are known for their loyalty and make great family pets. They are pack animals, so make sure that you always lead your mini husky as the alpha.
7. Fluffy Pomsky
This cutie looks like another Pomeranian cross Husky to us – check out that tail and neck ruff! When you buy a mixed breed dog, you never know how many characteristics the puppy will inherit from either breed. Some litters can have completely different looking puppies!
8. Piercing Blue Eyes
Many huskies and mini huskies have been bred specifically to have blue eyes as it’s such an unusual look. There are no benefits or drawbacks health or vision wise for blue eyes.
9. Pack Animals
Huskies were originally bred to pull sleds as part of a pack. Despite being much smaller, mini huskies still have these same instincts and love being a part of the family – even with other dogs!
Mini huskies are incredibly intelligent animals and will be able to pick up on new commands and other training easily. Look at how beautifully Moko the Alaskan Klee Kai is sitting!
11. A Pack Of Pomskies
Canadian Pomsky are one of the most well known breeders of Pomskies and mini huskies in North America. And they ship to the US!
12. An Otherworldly Look
Some people think this unusual looking Pomsky looks like “The Others’ from Game of Thrones. Winter is coming!
13. Always High Energy!
Huskies are known for being very energetic and needing lots of daily exercise – one walk a day and lots of play too, ideally. When you see those eyes, how can you say no to a walk in the park?!
14. Lots of Hair
Be prepared for some shedding when you buy a mini husky, especially if you live in a hot country. It’s best to brush them once a week to get rid of the dead hair.
Mini huskies don’t bark like all the other dogs – they howl! The noise sounds a bit like a wolf – the husky’s ancestor.
16. Escape Artists
Mini huskies are known for being crafty little creatures and can easily escape through small holes in the yard fence if they see an opportunity. Make sure you keep them on a leash at the park too, otherwise they’ll be running for miles!
17. Brain Training
Keep your mini husky’s mind stimulated by buying them chew toys to play with – these will exercise their brain and their jaws.
Mini huskies usually live for between 12 and 14 years, and Alaskan Klee Kais live between 10 to 13 years.
19. Mix and Match
There’s lots of different husky mixes being bred right now: as well as pomskies and AKKs, there are Hugs (x Pugs), Goldskys ( x Golden Retrievers), Labskys (x Labradors), Dachshusky (x Dachschund), Horgi (x Corgi), Siberpoo (x Poodle) and many more.
20. Does That Come In Extra Small?
You can even get the indescribably cute teacup size husky – try not to melt over this gorgeous Teacup Pomsky!
21. They’re Perfect
But regardless of size, shape, mix or temperament, the mini husky is one of the most beautiful, unique and loving dogs on the planet. Who wouldn’t want to add one to their family?
You’ll have to excuse us; we’re off to buy a mini husky (or two).
