Maureen Van Wormer-Westburg began creating the breed in the late 1980's right here in the usa. she was nicknamed Micky and this is where the Mi-Ki originated from. Micky began with the purebred Papillion, Japanese Chin, and Maltese. She purposely bred for a non-shedding, hypo-allergenic coat. They are calm yet playful with cat like mannerisms, gentle, social, outgoing, and extrememly loving to people as well as other animals. The Mi-ki will average about 5-8 pounds as adults.
Our tiny boy weights 5.7 oz. now. He is doing very well. He a great
little eater and loves to be with his Mom. He has the most black on
him. At the vet they said he looks like he is wearing a tuxedo. So
I've been calling him Tux. Don't worry family you get to name him.
I am planning to keep this little girl as a breeder if everything goes right.
She has caught up to her big brother in size and weights 7.2 oz. She also
has more black on her back than he does. Please remember that the color
of a puppy can change over time. So we may see some gray as they grow.
I am hoping to keep this little girl. She started out at 4.1 oz and is now 4.6 oz. She has a black heart on her left side. I am thinking about calling her Sophia's Heart. If you have any suggestions for a name, I would love to hear them.
