Who We Are!
The International Mi-Ki Registry
The IMR welcomes you to thoroughly read through all pages and links on our website to gain a comprehensive insight and factual knowledge of the IMRʼs purely bred Mi-Kis. We are the only Mi-Ki registry that can substantiate every one of our foundation Mi-Kis and litters through our DNA-VIP Profile records, on file with the United Kennel Club, Inc. This validates the integrity and accuracy of the IMRʼs official Stud Book, Pedigrees and Registry Archives.
Being consistent with, and true to the Original Mi-Ki Standard as set forth by the originator of the initial Mi-Ki strain, Maureen Van Wormer, (Micki Mackin). The IMR along with the original Mi-Ki club, the Imperial Toy Mi-Ki Club and the Continental Mi-Ki Association, exclusively breed and register only Mi-Kis with the long, silky, non-shedding coats.
In trying to produce the healthiest Mi-Kis possible the IMR requires health checks on all breeding pairs. We were the first to have our Mi-Kis certified for eyes, hearts and patellar luxation. The Mi-Ki database for both the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and the Canine Eye Research (CERF) were started with Mi-Kis from the IMR.
IMR is the parent club for the Canine Health Information Center(CHIC). We support this important resource for breeders and owners to keep track and research health clearances and any health issues. We encourage all Mi-Ki breeders to submit their health clearances to be OFA & CHIC certified.
In April of 2008 the Canine Developmental Health and Performance Registry (CDHPR) accepted the IMR/CMA Mi-Kis into their entry program for subsequent entry into the United Kennel Club, Inc in January 2016. The International Mi-Ki Registry is considered the national breed club for the Mi-Ki.
International Mi-Ki Registry would like to acknowledge our continued involvement with the UKC by acknowledging the one breed standard; joined together in sharing the same goals toward educating our breeders; are honestly sharing our breed's history; and are working together to produce quality Mi-Kis that display outstanding type, temperament, health, and conformation.
Currently the IMR uses DNA-VIP to profile all their breeding Mi-Kis & litters through BioPet Vet labs. DNA-VIP assists us, as breeders and registries, to ensure the future of this new rare breed as a verifiable purebred. By documenting our DNA results with this independent lab, breeders are assured that bloodlines are accurate and buyers are reassured of the authenticity of their companion.
