The Mi-Ki breed was developed in the United States and started gaining popularity in the 1980’s. The origins of the Mi-Ki breed remain unclear. One theory is that the dog was developed from a single breed from Asia, whereas another hypothesizes that it has developed from a complex mix of various toy dog breeds such as the Papillon, Maltese, Shih-Tzu and Japanese Chin. Either way, the breed has turned into an exceptional toy breed with excellent health, temperament, and longevity; the ultimate companion lap dog. Because of their unique genetic mixture, two coat varieties have derived within the breed: the long coat and the smooth coat.
