Breeding with a purpose
Mi-kis are amazing dogs that have been bred specifically for use as therapeutic companions. We hand select every dog in our program both as a treasured household member and as a contributor to the future of this fledgling breed. We choose friendly, calm, cheerful, intuitive dogs that are also simply adorable.
Breeding selections are made after health tests are done to select for the most desirable traits as well as for low inbreeding coefficiencies to promote the genetic health of Mi-kis.
Knowing that genetic diversity is the foundation for any sound breeding program, we’ve added new members to our pack for evaluation as future breeding hopefuls.
Royal T’s Brilliant Brighton is a 6.5-pound cream and white female who has done very well for us in the show ring. She has a very friendly personality and is very sweet. So far she has passed her heart and patella exams and will get her eye screening soon as well as a DNA trait and health panel test.
Jubilee’s Champagne Truffle is a small chocolate female (we’re calling her a white chocolate mocha color) that we’re very excited about. She has an outgoing personality to make sure she’s noticed despite her small size. Truffle will have her health tests done in June. She has had very positive feedback from our coaches in our conformation class.
Our Youngest Hopefuls:
Brumby’s Run Baron von Royal T is a handsome and sweet red sable parti-color who carries chocolate and smooth. He has been hand selected to ensure we have a future of beautiful chocolate Mi-kis in our program.
Eden is a beautiful black and white female with a charming, gentle personality. She has a beautiful coat and a lovely, smooth gait. She carries chocolate and the smooth-face demi-long-coat gene.
Denaya is very graceful and athletic with beautiful proportions. Her solid black coat is lush and soft. She is very affectionate and fun! We look forward to her participating in showing in the future.
Why We’re Growing
Mi-kis have been a purebred dog breed for only about 30 years but they have won the hearts of many people. The rare Mi-ki dog breed has been accepted by the United Kennel Club (UKC) and is on its way to recognition with the American Kennel Club (AKC).
Recognition and preservation of the Mi-ki dog breed
In order to get full recognition with the AKC, more generations (litters) must be recorded in the Mi-ki pedigree records as well as other qualifications that the Mi-ki clubs are working towards. Royal T Mi-kis registers with both the American Mi-ki Registry Association (AMRA) and the UKC.
Royal T Mi-kis is partnering with local branches of the UKC and AKC to help educate others about the Mi-ki dog breed and to help attain recognition by the AKC. We’ve begun showing our dogs with the UKC to get feedback on the desirable traits that healthy and sound dogs should exhibit for dogs in general as well as for the breed standard.
Royal T Mi-kis is making an effort to be part of the movement to secure a healthy and lasting future for the Mi-ki dog breed through several avenues. We’re making informed decisions for breeding through the use of health tests with both genetic and physical exams. We’re also taking canine genetics classes to understand the best breeding practices not only for a pleasing appearance but also for a sustainable future with a healthy and diverse gene pool.
In order to fulfill our dream to provide others with healthy Mi-kis to enjoy and to secure a healthy future for the breed, we are looking to find a property with a bit more space and the appropriate zoning to accommodate a small in-home kennel. We will always remain small to ensure every puppy is socialized in a family home setting.
