Welcome to Royal T Mi-Kis

More Puppies are due in June!

Welcome to Royal T Mi-Kis! We’re a Colorado-based breeder of quality Mi-Ki puppies from health-tested parents. Our home-raised puppies are lovingly socialized and arrive already using potty pads, with their first set of shots, an optional microchip, and the first month of free pet insurance. They are ready to fit right in with your family!

Mi-Kis are a rare and wonderful breed that are known for their sensitive and adaptable natures. They aren’t yappy, they do not require a lot of exercise, and the long coat variety has hypoallergenic characteristics.

What breeds formed the Mi-Ki?

Like all purebred dogs, Mi-Kis were created from other breeds. They are not “designer dogs” that can be created with a dash of this and that, however. Mi-Kis have to be bred to other DNA-verified Mi-Kis with proven pedigrees to prove they are Mi-Kis with the wonderful traits they are known for.

The Mi-Ki’s foundation breeds include the Shih Tzu, Maltese, Pomeranian, Pekingese, and maybe a dash of Bichon Frise/Cotton de Tulear and Yorkshire Terrier. Prior to the advent of DNA screening, we were told that the Mi-Ki was made up of the Maltese, Papillon, and Japanese Chin, but the Papillon and Japanese Chin breeds haven’t really shown up much in the breed profiles on DNA tests.

Mi-Kis have been a pure breed since the 1980’s and were recognized in January of 2016 by the United Kennel Club in the Companion Group.

Mi-Ki Traits

Mi-Kis are intelligent sweet-natured small companions known for their intuitive calm demeanor, expressive ears, a “Gremlin” look, and for being easy to travel with with a portable size from about 4-9 pounds.

These traits make this rare breed an excellent candidate for therapy work, for medical alert service, as well as for living in apartments. The Mi-Ki is truly the sweetheart of the toy breeds.

Mi-Kis come in two coat types – the more common hypoallergenic long-coat style, and the smooth-face variety. The smooth-face Mi-Ki has a demi-long coat that does shed. We mostly breed long-coat Mi-Kis and occasionally have the smooth-face variety. Only 25% of all AMRA-registered Mi-Kis are smooth-face. The International Mi-Ki Registry Association does not recognize the smooth-face Mi-Ki.

Regardless of what Mi-Ki you choose, you will agree that this is a fantastic breed and will likely want more than one! We have many repeat clients.

Testimonials about Royal T Mi-kis

Our adopters are some of the best dog people around! We love having happy clients and are pleased to have repeat adopters. Here are a few excerpts from notes our clients have sent us.

From Cooper’s parents:

I love this breed so much. They make wonderful children. We rescued our last miki (Buddy)….who had so many medical and mental issues… We always wondered what he would have been like if he would have had a wonderful beginning like Cooper…now we know.

[Cooper] is completely potty trained, fetches toys and brings them back… He is such a joy and a gift from God. He is the best puppy we’ve ever had in over 30 years of having dogs. We love him so much. Thank you again so very much for Cooper. You are the best breeder of these little people. So organized and we can tell how much time and love was invested in our little Mini Cooper.

He hasn’t had an accident since the third day he was with us. Occasionally he just goes over and sits on the potty pad…looks at us for a treat… he is a funny little guy.

Quality Mi-kis Bred With a Purpose!

Hello Mary, just wanted to touch base to update you on Hudson and to thank you for providing us with the most SOCIAL little buddy ever! 
Hudson absolutely loves people,  but more so children it is absolutely heartwarming to watch him with them. 


The grandchildren came to Lake Havasu over Christmas and needless to say, I was worried about little Hudson being around a 6, 4 and 2-year-old (especially our 2 yr old grandson). Turns out they fell in love the second they met. It was like they were glued together. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that our grandson has severe asthma and maybe Hudson sensed it. What was even more shocking was how Hudson reacted when *** left… he went under the bed and refused to come out, we would lay on the floor and talk to him and you could actually see the tears in his eyes

Hudson the Mi-ki carefully watches over a sick child.

He would come out briefly when we would get **** on FaceTime to talk to him but this continued for 5 days! He finally came around… Whew!
We are leaving Lake Havasu for Saskatoon on Sunday so another adventure for him. He has adjusted to our life here so well. Hudson loves the 5-mile hikes each morning! He runs to get his bag and my shoes lol (we get funny comments like… “that’s a funny way to walk your dog”)

Hudson the Mi-ki loves riding in his dune buggy!

He also loves to go out in the desert in the RZR … He prefers not to wear his goggles or his mask  🙁

He’s the life of the party wherever we go!  
We bring his carry bad with on the rides as they usually have a restaurant destination. We put him in the bag to go inside and set him under our chair and people are amazed that nobody knows he’s there as he doesn’t make a peep! 
I am constantly explaining Mi-Ki to everyone who meets him. 

Thank you for the breeding these amazing friends!

From Abby, Hudson’s mom
