Mi-Ki Puppies for Adoption Near Denver and Colorado Springs CO
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.
We’re located in Elizabeth, Colorado, and serve clients around the United States and Canada.
Deposit Policy and Puppy Selection Process
A $300 non-refundable deposit places you in the choosing queue for our current and upcoming litters. We will start contacting the interested breeders regarding their selections and will begin releasing the puppies to our pet waitlist soon. It’s also possible to place a deposit to be in the choosing queue for future litters. 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. Very few dogs actually end up going to breeders.
Premium hand delivery options are available for an extra fee to your nearest airport. The service is $500, plus roundtrip airfare, and a one-way in-cabin pet ticket.

Cara Mia + Harley – DOB July 29, 2023 – the Remarkable litter
Cara Mia and Harley blessed us with five puppies! There are two black and white girls who look like twins that could end up being tricolors. There is also a red parti sable boy, a black boy, and a white boy. These puppies will be on hold until we know what their coat types are and know they are thriving. These puppies will likely be ready for their homes around October 7th, depending on size. Reena and Raphael will likely need more time. These puppies received their first shots on 9/22/23 and will be ready for their second on October 20th.
Reena – black/white female long coat – eight weeks old – charting to be 4 pounds, 3 ounces – Available for deposit list selection
Reena means “melody; serene, calm.” She is the smallest in the litter but is growing nicely. Reena is a pretty black-and-white female. We received her official coat type results, and she is a long coat that does not carry smooth. She may be small, but she has a big personality! She’s sweet and lots of fun. Reena went down on her estimated adult weight this week.
Rooney – parti red sable long-coat male – eight weeks old – charting to be 6 pounds, 4 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Rooney means “red” and “descendent of a champion.” DNA results confirmed our guess that Rooney is a long coat and also carries smooth. Rooney is developing some opinions as he is maturing – such as when he’s hungry. Is it just me, or does Rooney know how to work the puppy dog eyes already? Rooney went up this week on his adult weight estimate.
Reesa – black/white long-coat female – eight weeks old – charting at 5 pounds, 7 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Reesa is the biggest of the two females and her name means “laughter.” She has a bit more white splash than her sister. We suspected Reesa to be a long coat and her DNA testing confirms she is. She also carries smooth. Reesa went up on her weekly adult weight estimate. This girl is clever and fun!
Bitsy + Harley and/or Li’l Louis – DOB 8/13/2023 – the “Sweet” Litter
While we absolutely love the Bitsy/Harley combination, for genetic diversity, we decided to do a dual-sired litter with Louie as well. Harley and Bitsy have produced gorgeous creams, tricolors, and sables for us in both long and smooth-face varieties. Li’l Louis can also produce sables and tricolors but only long coats. Based on the appearance of the puppies, we think most or all of the puppies may be Harley’s. If so, these puppies may carry chocolate and/or smooth. They likely carry tan points (or are black & tan) and clear red as well. DNA testing was performed to test for furnishings (coat type.) Additional testing may be performed for any interested breeders.
These puppies will be ready for their homes approximately October 22nd, depending on size.
S’More – black & tan brindle smooth-face male – five weeks old – charting to be 6 pounds, 7 ounces – available for deposit list selection
S’More is the bigger of the two black & tan boys. His tan points are more apparent than his brother’s. Now that we’re looking at him through close-up photography, we believe he is brindle in the tan-points areas. Brindle striping goes all the way to the skin, and his skin appears striped as well. We’ve seen this pattern in one other Mi-Ki (Rayne, retired) which is fun. Since he is a smooth-face Mi-Ki, his brindle coat pattern will be more apparent. S’More is clever and fun! S’More is trending downward on his adult weight estimate this week.
Strudel – sable long-coat male – five weeks old – charting to be 5 pounds,8 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Strudel is a light sable male with a bit of white on his feet, chest, and a little blaze on his forehead. We will know his coat type later this week. Since he is a long coat, he will lighten to a gorgeous creamy gold as an adult. His DNA results say he is a long-coat Mi-Ki who does not carry smooth. Strudel is truly a sweet little pastry! Strudel is trending down on his adult weight estimate this week.
Scotch – buff long-coat male – five weeks old – charting at 4 pounds, 11 ounces – available for deposit list selection
Scotch is short for the butterscotch color that he is. He’s a gorgeous boy with a white blaze on his forehead. Scotch is a long coat that carries a copy of the smooth-face gene (a detail that only matters to breeders.) This boy has to be Harley’s son since he’s the only one who carries the clear red gene. He could carry chocolate and tan points. Scotch was being considered by a breeder, but she is now leaning toward Raphael at this point, so he is now available. He is trending down on his weekly adult weight estimates.
Sprinkles – brindle long-coat female – five weeks old – charting to be 4 pounds, 10 ounces at maturity – available for deposit list selection
Since brindles are sprinkled with so many colors, Sprinkles seems like the right name for this pretty girl. She looks just like her daddy Harley. She is a long coat Mi-Ki who does not carry smooth, according to her DNA testing. We love her rich colors and dark mask. She will likely lighten with age but will be the perfect color that never looks dirty. As you can tell by the photos, Sprinkles loved being outside more than any of the puppies. She was literally rolling in the grass! Sprinkles went down on her weekly adult weight estimate.
Kaiya + Quigley – DOB September 2nd, 2023 – The “Timeless” Litter
This is a repeat pairing for us. Kaiya and Quigley can produce sable and black and white long-coat puppies that carry smooth, chocolate, and clear red, so they are excellent breeding candidates.
This litter will be ready for homes on approximately November 11th, depending on size.
Tess – black and white long-coat female – two weeks old – charting to be 5.25 pounds – on hold
Tess means late summer and “harvest.” She carries chocolate, smooth, and clear red. She is on hold for breeder consideration. She will be selected by Shelley P. if a breeder doesn’t select her.
Tate – black and white long-coat male – two weeks old – charting to be 6.0 pounds – available for deposit list selection
Tate means “cheerful.” This handsome long-coat boy carries smooth, chocolate, and clear red.
Trey – sable and white long-coat male – two weeks old – charting to be 5.5 pounds – available for deposit list selection
Trey means “three/third.” This gorgeous long-coat boy will likely be red/gold and white at maturity. Like his siblings, he carries chocolate, smooth, and clear red.
Cocoa Chanel + Legend – DOB September 19, 2023 – the “U” Litter
Legend and Chanel gave us two big boys via C-section early this morning. One is black and white and the other is chocolate and white.
Uriel – black and white long-coat male – 9/19/23 – 9/21/23
Uriel sadly did not survive. He was loved!
Ulrich – chocolate and white long-coat male – one day old – 5.2 ounces at birth – on hold
Ulrich is a hefty, beautifully marked chocolate and white male. He is doing well. After losing a little after birth, which is quite common, he’s nearly regained his birth weight. Ulrich means “noble or regal ruler.”
Bernadette + Harley and/or Chance – Due Approximately September 24, 2023
Bernadette was paired with Harley in hopes of getting more smooth-face Mi-Kis from them. There is a possibility that Chance is the sire as well since our escape artist Bernadette picked him. If Harley is the sire, they could produce sables or black puppies that are smooth or long coats. If Chance is the sire, they could produce black, sable, or blue long coats. I can only hear one heartbeat so she will be going to the vet for an x-ray to make sure she can deliver her puppy.
Echo + Cosmo – Due approximately October 9, 2023
Echo and Cosmo have produced some lovely puppies for us, so we’re repeating the pairing. Here are photos of their previous litters. They can produce long coats that are chocolate, black, that are solid, or particolored. Echo is looking nice and pregnant.
Umber turned one and just passed the rest of her health screening tests and will be paired when she has her second cycle. Yohanna will likely have her second cycle in November and will be paired with Cosmo or one of our suitable newer young studs. Isabelle will also be ready for a pairing in the fall. We’re skipping Francine this cycle. We plan to pair Halen with Flower on her second heat. We also plan to pair him with Holly Berry in 2024 for an all-smooth litter with the possibility of blues, black & tans (and possibly even blue & tans!) See Our Dogs for more information. We will be holding off on breeding Zelda and Poppy until they get bigger.

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.
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)
- Tracy K. – Smooth-face female – no smooth females this round.
- Bonnie – unrelated male, blue carrier
- Cindy – White female over 5 pounds, with a short muzzle and no tearing
- Jennifer – Chocolate female, unrelated to Sebastian.
- Jodi – deposit taken
- Diana – smaller therapeutic male – keeping him intact for Royal T stud use.
- Raeann – white or cream male – considering either Raphael or Scotch
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.
