Many years ago when Grand Champion 'PR' Alasco's Tyler First Red Alkai, August 16, 1999,  
was born, Many people started thinking that NOW we were going to have Red and White 
Alaskan Klee Kai.  Carol Din had a vision of little red and white puppies as well as  the rest.  
She pulled out pedigrees and researched until she thought she knew where they could 
come from.  She then set out to get dogs with those bloodlines, and raise them until they were 
old enough to breed.  One of the two that she had in mind that might be able to reproduce the 
red puppies, didn't get along with one of her foundation dogs.  Bad day for her.  What a 
lucky day for me.  I wound up with Grand Champion 'PR' Widdershin's Toe Tapping Tempo
and Champion 'PR' Widdershin's Jive Rhythm Rocks. 

In February 2004, I had a couple of days that I had Chest pains.  So I had to leave those two 
dogs home alone while I went to the emergency room.  63 days later, on Easter Sunday, 
while I was sleeping, Tempo gave me a wonderous  Easter Gift.  Two babies.  
1 black and white little girl, and 1 Oh My! A Red and White little girl.  
Anthem and Psalm.  I didn't even know what I had.  I posted 
a picture to the TLC group and within minutes, I was getting emails back... 
asking if there were problems with the monitor, or was 
that little girl..  
RED?  Yes she was. 

That Summer, I lost Rhythm.  I wondered if we lost our chance for reds  as well or if  
breeding with another male would work, or if  that was it.  We no longer have the 
sire of Tyler either with us in the AKK Community.  I thought that I had been neglectful 
of a trust put to me and failed to protect the chance of us bringing this color out 
in the breed.  It was back to pedigree research yet again..  I found a male puppy available.  
He was related to Rhythm by his father being a littermate to Rhythms father.  I thought.. 
Just Maybe.  It could be......

 

I did acquire this dog, and since then, they created a test, to test for red factor, that had not been 
around at the time of this dogs birth and acquisition, it was a few months before 
I could even test to see if it was possible, but, chance Brought us Tyler, and 
pedigree research brought us Psalm, so I was willing to take another chance.  I did later 
test King and found that he is Red Factored.  How Exciting.  It was 
hard to wait until King grew up and it was time to breed Tempo again.

I feel like science can give you the possibility or impossibility, but not the probability.  I know 
the possibility is that each puppy has a 25% chance of being red.  Each and every one if Both 
parents are red factored.  By all odds, Tempo having so many is a chance of 1 in 10s of 
thousands.  So I think there must be something else that science has not explained 
to us yet.  Scientific Research is a theory until it is proven wrong.  Our population is so small 
that it will be a long time before we can "prove" anything. 


Buddy 10/2/2004

There are those who complain that they have not been given credit for this litter being 
born.  It is not to be taken as an offense that no one else is given credit for this breeding.  The 
litter was planned by me, the dogs were bred by Helderberg Huskies, Widdershin Estates, 
with a little  help from Dragonsweyr.  I could go back as far as our lines go to the beginning 
of the breed in attempt to not leave anyone out, but  I chose to place these dogs together to 
attempt to get another red puppy based on pedigree analysis. 

 

The above paragraph has changed.  There has now been a litter of puppies 
born that the sire was tested for Red Factor before being bred, 
although he was the sire to Rhythm, so we knew that he had to 
be Red Factored.  This breeding produced 2 Black and White Girls, 
1 Red and White Male, and 1 Solid White Male.  The Solid white male 
turned 
out to have liver points instead of black which means that he would 
have tested as a red dog.  He also had green eyes.  Which in itself is rare in our 
breed.  We kept the two girls and the red and white male.


Malaia and Ruby

At this time, I have seen no unusual health problems in the red dogs.  
Red AKK are no different,  no better, and  no worse in terms of 
health issues than any other color of AKK.
  
No one breeder can tell you more or less about the health of  the breed 
based on color, but only about the dogs, that  they have produced. 


Cali

As with anything new in a breed, the Red AKK will need to be monitored for several 
years and generations for anything to be spoken about them,  positive or negative,  
with confidence.  The offspring of these dogs (from H.O.T.) will be only placed on strict 
companion contracts, Co-ownership Contracts 
or with approved experienced 
breeders
 to be able to monitor health in the puppies as well as their offspring 
for a few generations.  Stud Services will be provided on a case by case basis to 
breeders who will follow a similar responsible plan with the offspring that they place.  

*

There have now also been Multiple breedings of Red to Red that have produced puppies.  
All of the puppies as expected have been red and white except one that was a 
liver pointed white puppy.  We are also now testing some of the liver pointed dogs that are 
either white or pale red for the purpose of verifying information for the breed.
