Our Mi-Kis are our beloved pets. Many of our dogs sleep with us, they probably eat better than we do, and they get lots of pampering. They have also done lots of professional modeling at BaxterBoo.com.
Our parents are OFA health tested for eyes, heart, patellas, and with the Optimal Selection Wisdom Panel and/or Embark DNA screening for health and traits. We’re a bit behind on some of our eye tests due to COVID, but will get on track soon now that eye clinics are being offered again.
Our dogs are registered with the American Mi-Ki Registry Association and most are also registered with the United Kennel Club.
Our Mi-Ki Dams
Savannah – Solid Chocolate Long Coat Mi-Ki Female – Retired
Jubilee’s Southern Charm Royal T is a rare dark chocolate color and is a long-coat Mi-Ki and professional model. She was the first Mi-Ki we purchased and we sought her out specifically because her line has a proven aptitude for medical alert work. Her grandmother Halle serves as a diabetic medical alert service dog. Some of Savannah’s puppies have also become service dogs.
Savannah has done extensive professional modeling and her photos can be found all over the internet. She has retired and will stay here forever. She is our mascot.
Brighton – Cream/White Long Coat Mi-Ki Female
Ch. Royal T’s Brilliant Brighton is our firstborn Royal T Mi-Ki and has been having success in the show ring and as a professional model. Brighton is out of Evie and Moses. She weighs 7.5 pounds. She has passed her DNA screenings, heart, patella, and eye health clearances. Brighton was our first UKC champion and is working towards her grand champion title. Brighton was the #3 Mi-Ki in the UKC’s Top Ten in 2022. Bitsy, Cara Mia, and Nilla will be carrying on her legacy as she heads toward retirement next year.
Tootsie – solid chocolate
Jubilee’s Tootsie Pop Drop is the daughter of our Everleigh and granddaughter of Savannah who was bred by Barbara Briggs. Barbara is getting ready to be a grandma so she is simplifying her life with fewer breeding females (but don’t worry – she’s still breeding!) Barbara asked if we might want to bring another chocolate home, and we couldn’t resist!
Chai – Cream/White Long Coat Mi-Ki Female
My Little Cup o’ Chai Royal T is a pretty little 4-pound clear red (cream and white) from a rare Mi-Ki line we’re helping to maintain. Despite her small size, she has had an easy time birthing her litters and is a great little mamma! She had perfect OFA screenings and an Embark DNA test. Chai recently showed very well at the 2022 Mi-Ki specialty with IABCA. She earned her national and international championship titles (applications pending) and high placements including Best of Breed, and a Group 3 in the Toy category.
Lucy – Black and Tan Long Coat Mi-Ki Female
Royal T’s Lovable Lucy is a beautiful black tricolor Mi-Ki girl with beautiful conformation, though she does not care for the show ring! She is out of Evie and Moses. She weighs 5 pounds and has been a success as a mother of some beautiful puppies. She’s passed her CHIC ophthalmic exam OFA cardiac and patella tests as well as had an Embark DNA screening. Lucy is the mother of Gabriella.
Isabelle – Solid Sable Long Coat Mi-Ki Female
UKC Ch. Royal T’s Irresistible Isabelle is a tiny Mi-Ki girl (barely 4 pounds) who carries chocolate from her mother Truffle and clear red from her father Moses. She’s done well in the show ring. She became a UKC champion on 7/16/22. She’s passed her CHIC ophthalmic screenings, had her Embark DNA health screening, and all her OFA screenings. Because of complications during her last litter, we will consider breeding her one last time to keep a male back for the sake of the gene pool. Isabelle’s daughter Francine is in our Guardian program.
Bitsy – Solid sable long-coat Mi-Ki Female (Carries the smooth-face gene)
Royal T’s Beloved Bitsy is out of Brighton and Sinbad. Bitsy is sturdy, active, and athletic and will help provide more Mi-Ki lines that are suitable for active families. Bitsy carries clear red, tan points, and smooth. Bitsy weighs nearly 8 pounds.
Echo (Carries the smooth-face gene)
Royal T’s Echo of Savannah is our long-hoped-for dark chocolate girl who is an “echo” of her grandmother Savannah, our mascot. Echo is out of Everleigh and Baron (retired.) She has a very sweet personality. Echo weighs 6 pounds. She also carries smooth.
Royal T’s Gallant Gabriella is our blue carrier we’ve kept in hopes of producing blue Mi-Kis. She is out of Lucy and Jagger (retired.) She carries big K and tan points in addition to dilute (blue.) She does not carry the smooth-face gene. She was paired with Cosmo, our blue carrier, and gave us our first blue girl – Zelda. She is about 5.0 pounds. We plan to repeat the pairing with Cosmo.
Royal T’s Cocoa Chanel Couture is Truffle and Baron’s daughter and is a sable chocolate female who can also produce cream and white puppies. Chanel can only produce long-coat puppies. She is a little over 4 pounds. We are hopeful she’ll grace us with her first litter in 2022 or we may just continue to put her in the show ring, which she is finally deciding isn’t so bad. Chanel did well at the 2022 Mi-Ki Specialty and earned 1st Place in Bred-by Female as well as her National and International Champion titles (applications pending.) Chanel had complications with her first litter, therefore, we will consider doing one more breeding with her to a different sire before deciding if she is suitable for breeding or if she will be retired.
Bernadette – black smooth-face Mi-Ki
Brumby’s Run Bernadette Royal T is our first smooth-face addition to our program. She has a shiny black coat, white paws, big, beautiful eyes, and a nice short, broad muzzle. We’re told that it takes two years for a smooth-face Mi-ki’s coat to really come in, but what’s there is gorgeous. We love how athletic she is. She has great rear angulation, which is something we want to promote in the gene pool. She’s going to be a good-sized girl and should be a wonderful contributor to our program. She carries blue so could be a potential mate for Cosmo, though he does not carry smooth.
Dresden – tricolor long coat
Brumby’s Run To Dresden is Li’l Louis’ littermate. She is a tricolor. She was in another breeding program but they decided they are moving in a different life direction. We were so impressed with her first litter with them that we decided to bring Dresden here. Dresden carries blue and smooth. She was recently paired with Cosmo for a shot at blues.
Cara Mia – clear red long coat
Royal T’s Countess Cara Mia, formerly Queen B, was adopted by a wonderful lady who has had a medical event that will require long-term therapy. We bought her back with the promise that we will take good care of her and are hopeful she will enjoy being a mom as much as her mother Brighton and Grandmother Evie. We had wanted to keep another female out of Brighton and Sinbad before they retire anyway, so we are blessed to have her back. She seems to be enjoying having so many new playmates – especially Umber and Echo.
Umber – chocolate long coat (carries smooth)
Royal T’s Umber, Girl Wonder has captured my heart with her strong resemblance to her grandmother Savannah, but it’s her temperament and brilliance that have really caught my attention. She learns things very quickly, is eager to please, and is very sweet and affectionate. She has not gotten the memo about Mi-Kis being quiet, however! She likes to make sure she is noticed. Umber is out of Harley and Everleigh.
Umber is chocolate and carries clear red, tan points, big K, and smooth. These are exciting results that could give our clients some beautiful colors and variations to choose from in her offspring. We hope to pair her with Cosmo, Legend, or our partner dog Blue.
Our Mi-Ki Sires
Moses – Solid Sable Long Coat Mi-Ki Male (carries the Smooth-Face gene) – mostly retired
Tesoro Mio Moshe is a solid sable long-coat male Mi-Ki (who carries smooth) that has lightened to a beautiful gold color with red undertones. Moses also carries clear red and tan points. Moses has recently started showing with the UKC and surprised us with a Group One win, beating out his daughter Isabelle and all the other competitors in the Companion Group. Moses and Evie have produced some beautiful puppies in a wide variety of colors, including Brighton, Lucy, and Kaiya. Moses is also the sire of our crowd favorite Isabelle. Moses weighs 5.0 pounds. Moses is basically retired. He is 9.5 years old. We anticipate that he will stay here as he has an important role in cleaning the females’ ears and keeping the younger boys in line.
Harley – red brindle long-coat (Carries the smooth-face gene)
UKC Ch. Royal T’s Harley Ryder is the first male we’ve been able to keep for our program from a planned pairing with Chai and Tesoro Mio’s Colorado Cowboy. Harley is a red brindle that carries clear red (cream/apricot/white) as well as chocolate and tan points. We planned this special breeding as we outcross chocolate carriers to full chocolates for genetic health and diversity. He is a long coat but carries the smooth-face gene. We’re looking forward to this little guy (4.5 pounds) being a major contributor to our program. Harley is already a UKC champion. Harley earned his National and International Championship titles at the 2022 Mi-Ki Specialty weekend (applications pending.) He also earned a best-of-breed 1st Place award. Harley achieved 6th place in the UKC Top Ten for Mi-Kis in 2022.
Cosmo – Clear red long-coat
UKC Ch. Estrellita’s Count Cosmo Royal T was bred by Rebecca Thomason in Texas. Cosmo is a clear red boy who carries chocolate, blue, and two big K’s (which means that chocolate and blue offspring will be dark chocolate and slate blue.) Cosmo has a gorgeous, thick coat that isn’t prone to matting. He is a long-coat Mi-Ki and does not carry smooth. Cosmo is a UKC champion. He also earned his IABCA International Championship title at the 2022 Mi-Ki Specialty weekend (applications pending.) He also earned a best-of-breed 1st Place award. We are honored that Cosmo is the #2 Mi-Ki in the UKC’s Top Ten in 2022.
Li’l Louis (Louie) – parti sable long-coat
Brumby’s Run Li’l Louis Royal T is a handsome parti red sable long coat that reminds us of our gorgeous Isabelle in looks and mannerisms. Li’l Louis carries blue, tan points, and big K. We look forward to him participating in our program beginning in late 2022. We’re not sure he’s a show candidate yet because he tends to not stand when he’s put on a table. If we work through that, perhaps he can try being a show dog.
Future Breeding Hopefuls
Zelda – blue brindle parti long coat
We’ve been waiting for a blue Mi-Ki for years and are so excited she’s finally here! Royal T’s Legend of Zelda is a blue brindle parti. Her Embark results are in and she carries everything but tan points and smooth, so she could produce a lot of wonderful colors for us in her future offspring. Zelda’s personality is very sweet and outgoing, which is evident even at a young age. We are truly excited about this special girl! So far she is fairly small, so we are hoping she makes breeding weight.
Yohanna – chocolate parti long coat
After six years of longing, Savannah finally blessed us with a breedable chocolate female to carry on her line! Royal T’s Yohanna Sebast’n Bark is a sweet, cuddly chocolate confection that has brought music and joy to our hearts. Though named after Bach, she rather resembles Beethoven with her dark wavy hair and frilly white sleeves. She also carries tan points and big K. So far, she doesn’t show signs of silvering. We are so excited to have her in our program to provide more beautiful chocolate Mi-Kis to the world. Additionally, this is the line we acquired at the beginning of our breeding program specifically because of a proven aptitude for medical alert work.
Brumby’s Run Positively Poppy is a gorgeous little brindle and white female from Brandy’s line. Ever since we first visited the Thomson’s home back in 2017, Brandy was the Mi-Ki we couldn’t forget with her charming “personality plus.” I always said I wanted something out of Brandy because of her temperament. Since Poppy came out of Brandy’s last litter, it was now or never, and we’re taking a chance on her even though she’s charting small. She is very much like her mother in personality, so we’re hopeful she will be able to be bred and contribute to the future of the Mi-Ki gene pool. Her breeder Bonnie says this line can develop its breeding size at a later stage. As promised, Poppy is getting a late growth spurt, so we’re encouraged! She is working towards her UKC championship.
Estrellita’s 2nd Chance Royal T is a very special addition to our program. He is the product of a miraculous surgical breeding with frozen sperm from an early Mi-Ki Stud named Mr. Universe “Gizmo” collected approximately 16 years ago. Many thanks to Tamara Bebee, the AMRA registrar, for having the foresight to collect her early Mi-Kis for the benefit of the breed. We’re also grateful to Rebecca Thomason for putting in the considerable effort and expense to facilitate this miracle with her carefully selected dam GRCH Laci. Chance not only has valuable DNA, but he also carries clear red and blue! We look forward to his contribution to our program and the Mi-Ki gene pool after he passes his health clearances. He is currently just under 5 pounds. His second testicle was slow coming down but is finally on its way, so we’re hopeful he will be able to be used for breeding after all.
Estrellita’s Legend in Time is Chance’s littermate, which means he too has very special DNA. As there were concerns that Chance may not get his second testicle, Barbara Briggs offered to sell Legend to us as she felt his DNA would have a better chance at making an impact on the breed in our larger program. We agreed to do so. Legend has a gorgeous coat, beautiful movement, and a winning personality. Legend carries blue, chocolate, and smooth, so he offers our program several color options. Legend is about a pound larger than Chance and weighs 5 pounds, 12 ounces. He and his brother enjoy wrestling with each other, and so does Max. He’s fitting in very nicely.
We are excited to have Belle Amie’s Royal T to the Max join our program. There have been many attempts at reintroducing original Mi-Ki DNA from frozen semen collected from the AMRA registrar’s early studs but only two successful litters. Chance is from one of those litters, and Max’s mother is a descendant of the other – the “Buster” line. Max is black and white with a short muzzle and great conformation. He is a nice sturdy boy from Barbara Teichner’s famed “Buttercup” lines that have proven to be exceptionally healthy. Max carries chocolate, clear red, and tan points. His Embark DNA test reveals that he is genetically clear for all of the diseases they test for. Additionally, he has a very low inbreeding coefficient, so we are very excited about his contribution to our program. We plan to pair him with Isabelle, Cocoa Chanel, and Francine in hopes of infusing a sturdy outcross of genes into one of our favorite tiny lines to give it a bit more substance. He is a solid boy and currently weighs over 9 pounds.
Jovie is the long-awaited tricolor girl I’ve wanted out of Evie ever since she produced a tiny tricolor back in early 2018. I always thought, “she’ll make another,” but she never did until Evie’s final litter. Boy am I glad she surprised me with a parting gift! Jovie is a bit more delicate than her mother but she has stellar health genetics and carries blue from her sire Li’l Louis. We plan to pair her with Chance and/or Cosmo.
