Alaskan Klee Kai
Vanity breed.  In a day and age when there are easily over 200 breeds and millions euthanized each year for no reason, this breed is developed by miniaturizing Alaskan Huskies.  The irony is that the miniaturization process is utilizing another "breed" (the Alaskan Husky) that does not exist in any registry or by the interest of any club or standard.  Thus, this breed develops due to a vanity to have something cute.  As charming as the founder finds these dogs to be, the history of this "breed" (it is recognized by the UKC) readily comments on culling (killing of young pups if they do not measure up to expectations).  While there is little question that these dogs are very likely good companions, charming and small, one has to wonder at the characteristics they might possess that make them more valuable or cuter or more charming than dogs readily available at every local shelter.
