If you’ve considered making a Royal T Mi-Ki puppy one of your future furry family members, now is a great time to fill out our Questionnaire and consider placing a deposit for one of our current puppies or upcoming litters. The form can be found at the bottom of this page.
Deposit Policy and Puppy Selection Process
A $300 non-refundable deposit places you in the choosing queue for our current and upcoming litters. Currently, everyone on the waitlist list has made their selection, so new deposits will select available puppies unless you’re looking for something way may produce in the future. The $300 deposit goes towards the purchase price of $3,400.
Breeding rights are an extra $1,500. Breeding requirements and deposits are listed at the bottom of this page. To promote a quality gene pool, established breeders will have the option to make selections before pet deposits. Sometimes the breeding prospects are re-released to the pet list if a puppy doesn’t end up developing as hoped – for example, not a breeding size, incompatible pedigrees, DNA test results don’t show preferred traits or carrier status, or the puppy develops a considerable underbite, etc. So don’t lose hope if your favorite candidate is marked “On Hold – Under breeder consideration.” Very few dogs actually end up going to breeders.
We’ve listed our deposit choosing queue below to show current/future clients where their position is on the list.
- Tim E. – Long coat, either gender. (Tim’s Mi-Ki is turning 17 next month and is still hanging in there! So he’s going to pass this round.

- Ms. OM – Smaller male, therapeutic temperament. Will take Ian if he’s available.
- Kristen R. – smaller Mi-Ki to be a companion for current small Mi-Ki – possible blue puppy – Passing for now.
- Erika & Martin – chocolate smoothie – smooth-face Mi-Ki – choosing now.

Bitsy + Harley – DOB December 12, 2022 – the “Fantastic” Litter
This is a repeat pairing for us. Bitsy and Harley had six puppies! They had two girls and four boys. These puppies have already been microchipped and are due for their second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Frida – black & tan long-coat female – eight weeks old – Charting at 6 pounds 11 ounces – Reserved
Frida has fabulous brows, so we just had to name her that on this fabulous “F” litter. Frida is a black and tan girl with white toes. We had her tested with Embark. We are huge fans of this girl. Frida has a nice reverse scissor bite. We wonder if her ears might go up. Our vet says she has a lot of great qualities and she has really nice structure. She is a lot of fun, but she seems to be mellowing out a bit as she matures. Frida is due for her second set of shots on March 6, 2023. Frida is now reserved for Jean.
Franklin – tricolor long-coat male – eight weeks old – charting at 4 pounds, 5 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Franklin is a flashy tricolor male. His DNA reveals that he is a long coat who does not carry smooth. He does not carry chocolate. He’s a pretty boy! Franklin is usually found sleeping on his back and is a very relaxed, easy-going boy. Franklin has a scissor bite. Franklin is going to be quite small so special provisions will have to be made to protect him. Franklin is due for his second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Freddie – sable long-coat male – eight weeks old – charting at 6 pounds, 3 ounces – Available for deposit list selection
Freddie is a pretty sable boy with white toes. He’ll likely end up cream as an adult now that we know he is a long coat. Freddie also carries smooth. He does not carry chocolate. Freddie is trending downward on his weekly size estimates. Freddie has a level bite. He is due for his second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Fritz – black & tan long-coat male – eight weeks old – charting at 6 pounds 11 ounces – Available for deposit list selection
Fritz is a long-coat Mi-Ki who carries smooth and chocolate, which could make him an appealing candidate for a breeding program. Fritz is trending slightly higher on this week’s size estimate. He is milder in temperament compared to Frida but is still outgoing. Fritz has an underbite. He is due for his second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Fancy – parti sable long-coat female – eight weeks old – charting at 7 pounds, 0 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Fancy is a flashy particolored sable. She will most likely end up gold with dark fringe now that we know she’s a long coat. She also carries smooth but does not carry chocolate. She is trending up on her weekly charting estimates for mature weight. Fancy has an underbite. Fancy is now the biggest in the litter but Fritz and Frida aren’t far behind her. She has been especially affectionate with us all of a sudden. She is darling. Fancy is due for her second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Ferdinand – tricolor smooth-face male – eight weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 7 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Ferdinand is a flashy tricolor who carries chocolate. He’s the only smooth-face Mi-Ki in the litter. Smoothies are very rare. He is currently being considered by Erika and Martin. Ferdinand has a scissor bite. He is due for his second set of shots on March 6, 2023.
Everleigh + Cosmo – DOB December 13, 2022 – the “Grand Finale” Litter
Everleigh was paired with Li’l Louis as we were testing Louie’s fertility as a new stud. Louie can only produce long-coat puppies. Everleigh weighs 7 pounds. Louie weighs 4.25 pounds. This is Everleigh’s Grand Finale litter as it will be her last. We already have an applicant for Everleigh. This litter has exceptionally sweet temperaments as a whole. We love these pups!
Graham – black long-coat male – eight weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 9 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Graham is the only boy in this litter, so he’s super special. His theme color will be brown (graham-cracker-colored) to differentiate him from his other littermates. He has a white V on his chest. Graham has an underbite and likes to smile at us with it! He is starting to show signs of lightening behind his ears so he may not be solid black as an adult. Graham is clever and loves pets. He is due for his second set of shots on March 7, 2023.
Gigi – black long-coat female – eight weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 3 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Gigi stands for “green girl” which will be her color theme to differentiate her from her sisters. Gigi has very little white spotting – just a dot and a dash at her throat. Gigi runs to be with us. She is very affectionate and submissive. Gigi is due for her second set of shots on March 7, 2023.
Goldie – black long-coat female – eight weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 15 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Goldie’s theme color will be gold. She has a big white V on her chest. She has a pouty lower lip so will likely have an underbite. Her coat is glossy and straight and will be easy to care for. She has a sweet little smile. She is quiet and gentle. Goldie is due for her second set of shots on March 7, 2023.
Glitter – black long-coat female – eight weeks old – charting at 4 pounds, 2 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Gitter’s theme will be sparkling, of course! She has a streak of white down her chest and white toes on her back paws. Glitter is always excited to see us. She is very affectionate. Glitter is due for her second set of shots on March 7, 2023.
Bernadette + Harley – DOB 12/18/22 – the “Happy-Go-Lucky” Litter
Bernadette delivered three healthy puppies. They have one light-sable long-coat female and twin tuxedo smooth-face boys.
Honey – light sable long-coat female – seven weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 12 ounces – Available for deposit list selection
We’re in love with Honey’s color and pretty head. Her DNA results are in, and she is a long coat that carries smooth. Honey does not carry chocolate or blue but does carry clear red. She has one copy of CDDY/IVDD. Every time I look at Honey, I think I just might have to keep her – she’s that cute!
Halen – black tuxedo smooth-face male – seven weeks old – charting at 7 pounds, 12 ounces – available
Halen is the smaller of the brothers and I can tell him apart because his white socks are even in length. He has a V down his chest. Halen is a smooth-face Mi-Ki. His color testing reveals that he carries chocolate, blue, and tan points. Having a larger male in a breeding program is a great way to ensure you’ll produce breedable-sized females that can be kept back. We were actually considering him for our own breeding program for this reason. We would love for a local family to consider him who might keep him intact for us to borrow occasionally! Halen and Hollis are beautifully built athletic boys.
Hollis – black tuxedo smooth-face male, seven weeks old – charting at 8 pounds, 9 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Hollis has one longer sock on his front paw, which helps me tell him apart from his brother. Hollis is a nice sturdy boy with gorgeous eyes and a calm demeanor. His DNA reveals that he is a smooth-face Mi-Ki puppy. Hollis carries chocolate. This is going to be a nice, substantial, healthy pup that is capable of going on long walks and even hikes with his hearty size. Hollis would be an appropriate choice for a family with kids since he won’t be as fragile as some of the smaller Mi-Kis. Busy families will also appreciate the no-fuss coat that smoothies have. There’s something special about Hollis and how he watches his humans. He will be fun to train.
Cocoa Chanel + Cosmo – DOB 12/19/2022 – the “Inspired” Litter
Cocoa Chanel was successfully paired with Cosmo and delivered two puppies – a black tuxedo female and a black and white parti male. Unfortunately, this has been a difficult litter, and only Ian has survived. We are behind on photo/litter updates due to their care. Thank you for your patience with our slow correspondence.
Ian – black and white long-coat male – six weeks old – charting at 4 pounds 9 ounces – on hold
Ian is a very handsome boy. He is currently on hold for health reasons. We believe he has a slight cleft palate. He is now eating kibble and can drink water normally. He licks formula from a syringe too. If our vet determines Ian is otherwise healthy, he may be available to the right home. He has a therapeutic temperament and is highly socialized due to his constant handling and hand-feeding. Dogs with cleft palates may be more prone to sinus/respiratory infections. Ian’s cleft appears quite small to our untrained eye, however, so we’re hopeful that he will be healthy. He’s been much easier to care for than our precious Minnie was as a puppy as her cleft palate is more significant. Ian is being considered by Ms. O if he’s a good adoption candidate. If so, she will call him “Domino” like the game.
Evie + Moses and/or Louis – DOB 12/23/2022 – the “Jubilant” Litter
We were considering retiring Evie, but she had other ideas. She paired herself with a new boyfriend – Louis. Evie had two males and two females – one parti sable male, a parti sable female, a tricolor male, and a tricolor female. Evie will be retired after this litter.
Jenson – parti sable long-coat male – six weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 14 ounces – available for deposit selection
Jenson is a beautiful sable and white male who seems pretty happy and easygoing. We love the red and gold in his coat. He will likely be reddish gold with dark fringe as an adult. Jenson has a scissor bite. Jenson’s sire has been certified as Louis. We tested Jenson’s genetics and he is not a smooth carrier and carries clear red. He is negative for CDDY/IVDD. Tests for tan points and blue could also be done if breeders are interested.
Jovie – tricolor long-coat female – six weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 12 ounces – Reserved
I have said for years that if Evie ever gave me another tricolor girl, I would keep her as I haven’t quite gotten over giving up the only other one she’s produced to a pet home. Jovie will likely be staying here if she turns out to be a show candidate. Jovie has a stellar Embark test so she is staying here regardless of her underbite! Jovie’s sire has been certified as Louis.
Joyce – parti sable long-coat female – six weeks old – charting at 6 pounds, 6 ounces – reserved
Joyce is named to honor our very first Mi-Ki clients and friends – Tom and Joyce. Joyce went to be with the Lord just after Christmas, and our hearts are with Tom, the family, and with their Mi-Kis Andrew (who is a half-sibling to this litter), Danica, and Molly. Joyce is reserved for Camille our new breeder we are sponsoring. Joyce seems happy and easygoing so far. She has big, gorgeous eyes and a babydoll face. This has been a prevalent look in Evie’s offspring, and we hope to continue it through Joyce since Evie is due for retirement. She was tested with Embark. Joyce has a scissor bite.
Jett – tricolor long-coat male – six weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 13 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Jett is a gorgeous tricolor. You can see he’s a handsome chap with elegant features. He is also quite laid back and easygoing. Jett has a scissor bite. Jett’s sire is Louis. We tested Jett’s genetics and he has tan points, carries clear red, a mask, blue, and is negative for CDDY/IVDD. Jett doesn’t carry smooth. He would make an excellent breeding candidate with lovely conformation and colors.
Chai + Louie – due approximately February 18, 2023
We decided to try our newest stud Louie with Chai for a shot a exceptionally adorable puppies. They can produce long-coat red and white sables (which is what Louie is.) Their puppies will carry clear red and could also carry blue and tan points. They both weigh a little over four pounds each. Chai isn’t looking very pregnant at this point. She may not be pregnant at all. Sigh.
Echo + Cosmo – due approximately February 18, 2023
Although we considered using Harley with Echo for a shot at smooth-face Mi-Kis, Echo said, “no, thank you.” We trust that intuitive nature, so we let her choose Cosmo again. Their last litter was quite adorable! They can produce long-coat chocolates or black puppies, with or without white spotting. Echo weighs 5 pounds. Cosmo weighs 4.25.
Gabriella will be paired with Cosmo again or possibly Louis. Cara Mia will likely have her second cycle in May of 2023. She will be paired with either Harley or Louie. Our new chocolate girl Tootsie (half-sister to Echo) looks like she might cycle soon. We’re checking with the registrar to see who the best breeding candidate is for her. See Our Dogs for more information.
Interested in a puppy?
Scroll to the bottom of this page to fill out our questionnaire to show that you’re interested in being contacted for future litters. You may also choose to fill out the adoption questionnaire here, so we can get to know you and your needs.
Feel free to look through our Previous Puppies page to get an idea of what our current or future puppies might look like as they mature.
The Adoption Process
Royal T Mi-Kis makes every effort to ensure our puppies are matched with the right family for a lifetime of mutual enjoyment. The first step towards adopting a Mi-Ki is to fill out our adoption questionnaire (see below) which will help us understand what you are looking for in a Mi-Ki.
We’ll exchange emails, chat on the phone, or even set up a Zoom meeting to get to know each other. Next, a $300 non-refundable deposit will place you in the choosing queue. The deposit goes towards the $3,400 purchase price.
When the puppies are old enough to determine traits (usually around 4-6 weeks), established breeders will have the first choice followed by pet deposits. We will contact you when it’s your time to select a puppy. If you decide to wait for a future litter, you’ll move up in the choosing queue behind others who may have also passed.
Your Mi-Ki puppy will have a veterinary examination, first shots, a microchip, dewormings, dewclaw removal, and an airline-approved carrier. We also throw in a bunch of puppy supplies to help your young Mi-Ki get off to a great start!
Our Mi-Ki puppies are started on puppy pad training. Our puppies now have their first month with their new families covered by Trupanion Pet Insurance. Trupanion will pay your provider directly for any extra care needed for their first 30 days.
Puppies will be released to their new homes at around 10 weeks of age or 2 pounds. Small for gestational age or preemie puppies may need to be held for additional time. We can coordinate a puppy nanny to fly a puppy to your nearest airport for $400 plus airfare (to include an in-cabin pet ticket plus the courier’s ticket.)
Puppies may also be picked up by their new owners from our home or from Denver International Airport. Puppies should fly home on a direct flight if at all possible.
We are unable to facilitate young puppy adoptions to Hawaii due to the state’s rabies/quarantine regulations. Only available adult Mi-Kis or older puppies are eligible to be adopted to Hawaii if the short quarantine protocol (5 days) can be met with daily visits to the quarantine holding facility by the adoptive family.
Please note that international adoptions will require an additional $200 surcharge for extra paperwork fees, extended boarding, and vaccination requirements. Most international destinations require a rabies vaccination and puppies to be at least 16 weeks of age. My son has obtained his passport and is available for international courier services for a $500 transportation fee, plus airfare, the one-way in-cabin pet ticket fee, and for overnight lodging if required.
Breeders looking for puppies will have to be approved by the originators of our lines before we can sell a puppy with breeding rights. Established breeders will be given priority over pet owners to ensure that breed-standard/show-quality Mi-Kis stay in the gene pool.
We reserve the right to keep a puppy for our breeding program if circumstances require it. A deposit refund or replacement puppy will be offered instead.
Breeding rights are an additional $1,500 for approved kennels or new breeders that are willing to be mentored. Breeders agree to perform AMRA health testing recommendations and will abide by the American Mi-Ki Club Code of Ethics for breeding and responsible placement.
- Ms. P – Waiting for a blue or blue carrier male from Cosmo – (Lucy/Gabby are too closely related)
- Gayla – Gabriella/Cosmo puppy in 2023.
- Tracy K. – Smooth-face female – no smooth females this round 🙁
- Bonnie – unrelated male, blue carrier
- Cindy/Jennifer – female chocolate carrier out of Harley – Frida
- Camille – breeding pair – checking with her on her favorite candidates. Will likely have to get one puppy from me and an unrelated Mi-Ki from someone else or wait for a future litter.
- Jodi – deposit taken, but not sure we have something that will work for her.
Pedigrees of the parents may be viewed on the Our Dogs Page to determine breeding compatibility. Any puppies sold for breeding out of Belle Amie or Jubilee lines will require approval from Barbara Teichner and/or Barbara Briggs. Additionally, any future puppies produced from these lines are contractually bound to be granted permission before selling to other breeders.
Please note that established breeder deposits will take precedence over pet picks in order to preserve the Mi-Ki gene pool. Breeders are often looking for something quite specific such as a particular color, pedigree, ear set, size, being a carrier of certain traits, and excellent conformation. Because of these preferences, chances are that most of our puppies will be going to pet homes.
Don’t forget to check us out on our YouTube Channel for additional videos of the puppies!
