Our Dogs

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 – Retiring

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 is retiring and will stay here forever. She is our mascot.

Evie – Parti Sable Long Coat Mi-Ki Female – Retiring

Brumby’s Run Evie One Loves Royal T is a beautiful red sable parti long-coat Mi-Ki. She is a very sweet, mellow girl who has charmed everyone she meets. She has a gorgeous topline and beautiful movement. Although Evie has done some professional modeling, her real joy is being a mother. She has produced exceptional puppies with a variety of colors and markings that have matured between 3.5 and 10 pounds. Brighton, Lucy, Kaiya, and Jovie are continuing her legacy in our program now that Evie will be retired and spayed in March. We have already accepted an application and deposit for her.

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. Bitsy and Cara Mia will be carrying on her legacy as she heads toward retirement next year.

Everleigh – Solid Black Long Coat Mi-Ki Female (carries the Smooth-Face gene) – Retiring

Royal T’s Happy Everleigh After was born here in the same litter as Eden. She went to live at Jubilee Mi-Kis in NC for a couple of years where she contributed two beautiful daughters to Barbara Briggs’ program. We decided to bring her back to have more opportunities for chocolates, cream/whites, and smooth-face Mi-Ki puppies. Everleigh has beautiful eyes, a gorgeous silky, coat, and a sweet, engaging personality! Everleigh weighs 7.0 pounds. She is going to be retired in 2023. Everleigh will be adopted by a family who already has one of our former puppies and will be living in Texas.

Tootsie – solid chocolate

Tootsie is the daughter of Everleigh who was bred by Barbara Briggs of Jubilee Mi-Kis. 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

  • Lucy the black and tan Mi-Ki with two of her puppies

Royal T’s Loveable 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

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.


  • Gabriella's Pedigree

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.

Cocoa Chanel

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 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. We hope to pair her with Cosmo or Chance one day.

Our Mi-Ki Sires

Moses – Solid Sable Long Coat Mi-Ki Male (carries the Smooth-Face gene) – Retiring

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 5.5 pounds. Moses is nearly ready to retire. He is 9 years old. Although we anticipate that he’ll stay with us, he would also be an ideal candidate for a retired person looking for some company. Moses is in excellent health except for a developing cataract and a few missing teeth. He enjoys going on walks and car rides.

Sinbad – Solid Black Long Coat Mi-Ki Male with White Chest (carries the Smooth-Face gene) – Retiring

Belle Amie’s Sinbad is a handsome black Mi-Ki boy with the most luxurious and tangle-free coat we’ve ever seen. He’s out of the famed multi-champion “Henry” lines whose coat stays black. He has a delightful, playful personality with great structure and a cheerful gait. We’ve kept three of his daughters to be part of our pack. Despite being black, he can also produce cream and white puppies. Sinbad is very compact and weighs 7.5 – 8 pounds. Because Sinbad is well represented in our breeding program, he is eligible for adoption by the right family. Sinbad is scheduled for neuter and teeth cleaning in April 2023. Sinbad turned 7 in November.

Harley – solid red long-coat brindle (Carries the smooth-face gene)

  • Harley UKC champion certificate

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.

Cosmo – Clear red long-coat

  • our dog Cosmo a white cream Mi-Ki

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.

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’s so sweet and mild-mannered, but we’ll take him to some conformation classes soon to see if he likes it.

Future Breeding Hopefuls

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 put her good looks to work in the show ring. 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. Cara has had her first heat cycle and will be bred on her second in 2023 once she passes her health screenings in February.

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.

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 larger 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. 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.


We’ve just added Brumby’s Run Positively Poppy, a gorgeous little sable 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 says this line can develop its breeding size at a later stage. Fingers crossed!


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.


We are excited to have Belle Amie’s Max (full registered name pending) join our program. There have been many attempts at bringing in 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 may carry smooth. We look forward to unraveling his other genetic information with an Embark DNA test. 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.


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.


Joyce is another parting gift from Evie who looks a lot like her mother. Joyce was originally slated to go to another breeder, but the timing didn’t work out. Since Evie has been our best mama, we simply can’t resist keeping her look-alike too – especially since we found an appropriate retirement home for Evie. Joyce also mirrors her mother’s diverse color genetics and carries clear red and tan points. We’re also excited to keep her to honor her namesake, Joyce Summers. Tom and Joyce were our first Mi-Ki clients who adopted Andrew from Evie’s first litter. Joyce went to be with the Lord at the time of Evie’s Jubilant litter’s birth. With this being Evie’s last litter, keeping Joyce is just so fitting!

Partnership Stud Dogs

To promote genetic diversity but also limit the number of dogs we keep in our home, we’ve enlisted the help of friends and clients to keep quality males intact to use for stud service. With approval, these males may be available for outside stud service. You can learn more about being a Mi-Ki Stud Partner on our Guardian Home Program page.

Royal T’s Quigley

Quigley is out of Eden and Baron. He is a parti chocolate smooth-face Mi-Ki with lovely conformation. He is about 7 pounds. Quigley lives with Lisa Arnell in Castle Rock. Even though he is a smoothie, Lisa trims down his profuse coat because he gets too hot.


Blue (formerly Perry) is a puppy out of Quigley and Lucy who carries chocolate, tan points, and smooth. He is living with friends who have kept him intact as a possible breeding option in the future. He’s a beautiful example that the silvering gene can be beautiful.

Our Guardian Home Girls

Our new Guardian Home program has launched with female future breeding hopefuls being raised with trusted friends, families, and carefully-screened clients’ homes. When these girls are ready to have puppies, they will stay at our home from whelp to weaning. After being retired from breeding, they will stay in their Guardian homes as treasured family members.

Royal T’s Francine

  • Francine, one of our guardian home dogs
  • Francine's pedigree registration

Francine (formerly Flair) is out of Dexter and Isabelle. Fran is a beautiful red sable girl who carries tan points, chocolate, blue, and smooth. She didn’t have a successful litter the first time, so we will rest her and try again the cycle after next when our new stud Max is old enough.

Royal T’s Kaiya

Kaiya is a beautiful cream and white long-coat girl who is 6.5 pounds. Kaiya’s parents are Evie and Moses. She is a clear red who carries tan points. Kaiya lives with Quigley at Lisa Arnell’s house. Their puppies will always be white spotted and will carry clear red, chocolate, and smooth. They could also carry tan points.

Eden – Black and White Long Coat Mi-Ki Female (carries the Smooth-Face gene)

Royal T’s Endearing Eden carries chocolate and smooth. She has her dad Sinbad’s glorious non-tangling coat. She has passed all of her health screenings. She is an exceptional mother. She weighs 11 pounds. Eden is now living with her daughter Trixie in a guardian home arrangement. Eden may have another litter or two before retirement.


Royal T’s Flower of Eden (formerly Esme) is a gorgeous girl we kept out of an Eden/Cosmo pairing. She lives in a town nearby and her family is enjoying her. She carries clear red, chocolate, blue, and smooth. We hope to pair her with Chance, Blue, or one of our other blue or chocolate carriers in early 2024.
