  • About the Mi-Ki

    Though the Mi-Ki breed is rare, this cute breed, with its charming personality, is increasing in popularity. Originally bred in the 1980s, the Mi-Ki was developed from a mixture of Papillion, Maltese, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire Terrier, and Japanese Chin. Borrowing from these ancestors, the small-statured Mi-Ki has a long, silky, single coat grown to a natural length. Their ears may be winged or drop but must be well-fringed. All coat colors and markings are acceptable, except albinism. Mi-Kis are adaptable, intelligent, sweet-natured dogs weighing approximately 10 pounds. They love to play and enjoy exercise but are calm when needed. A long daily walk will keep the Mi-Ki well-exercised and healthy. Being outgoing and friendly makes them welcoming to strangers and playful with children and other pets.
