The Mi-Ki is a proud and very refined toy breed. They carry their heads high with the tail curved over the back and move smoothly with dignity and grace. There are two varieties, the long coat and the smooth coat.
Decendant From the Original Purebred Mi-Kis Lines
smooth and long coat Mi-Ki
These charming little guys are rare and highly sought after. They are very low maintenance as their coat is a medium length and lies close to the body. They do not have a beard or moustache on their faces but do have enchanting fringing on their ears and feathering on their legs.
The smooth coat variety of the Mi-Ki has been eliminated from the breeding program of some registries. Their loss is our gain, as the smoothies are directly descendant from the same original purebred lines as the long coats, and bring their own presence and contribution to avid dog fanciers.
These beautiful creatures boast a silky and straight, single coat. They come in an array of beautiful colors,with an abundance of feathers on their ears and a full mustache and beard on their face. They require regular grooming, but many breeders and pet owners choose to keep them in a puppy cut for easy maintenance. They are not big shedders and some individuals with allergy issues have suggested they may be hypo allergenic.
