Mi-ki Puppy Questionnaire
This is the first step towards adopting a Royal T Mi-ki into your home. While some of the questions may seem intrusive, our desire is to find the best match for both the dog and for your family. We are nice and we don't bite.
We also don't expect you to quit your job in order to adopt (though Mi-kis have been known to inspire lifestyle changes that favor time spent with them.) Some of the questions serve to help us customize your puppy's upbringing or preventative regimen. Be warned... Mi-Kis are addictive. We offer discounts for repeat clients to support the Mi-Ki habit. Please see section 2 for more information regarding our adoption process and deposit policy.

What is your puppy gender preference?
No preference. Personality is more important.
Mi-Kis generally range from about 4 pounds to 9 pounds at maturity. Do you have an estimated size preference? (Note: We meticulously chart our puppies' growth to give an estimated adult weight but are unable to guarantee the accuracy of the estimate.)
Do you have a color preference? (Check all that apply)
Parti-colored (large patches of white)
No color preference
Mi-Kis come in two coat varieties: 1) Long Coat - hypoallergenic non-shedding with a beard and mustache that requires regular grooming, and 2) Smooth-Face - short facial hair with a demi-long coat that stays the same length. The Smooth-Face Mi-Ki requires minimal grooming but may not be the best choice for those with dog allergies. What is your coat preference?
Either type of coat is fine
Is there a current puppy that is available that you have your eye on? If so, which one?
