The Teddy Bear is a designer hybrid that was first bred in the year 2000, from crossing a Shih Tzu and a Maltese (Mal-Shi) or in some cases from crossing a Shih Tzu and a Bichon (Shichon). They are quite popular in the United States and are highly sought after from dog breeders.
Appearance and Grooming
They have round faces with big eyes, small and flat noses, long and droopy ears and a puffy short tail. Partnered with fluffy coats, they resemble little bears. Their fur has different colors, making each of their patterns unique. The colors most common are white, brown, black, grey and yellow. Their fluffy hypoallergenic coats need to be brushed, washed and trimmed periodically.
One of the most loyal dog breeds; they are highly affectionate with high levels of obedience. They are recognized for their gentle nature and bark only when they feel the need to alert their owner. This attribute makes them a great selection for a watch dog.
Family and Companionship
This dog will share its love and affection with each member of its family, equally. Its sociable and friendly nature makes it a great companion for both people and other pets. These are the perfect pet for a family who always has someone around as they do not like to be left alone for long periods of time- they thrive in the company of others.
The Teddy Bear is not a highly active dog therefore a small daily walk along with some indoor play is adequate for their overall health.
Training and Socialization
This designer breed, although sporty and playful shows traits of stubbornness. They do extremely well at following commands and learning new tricks, as long as the owner is gentle and patient. Like many small breeds they need extra attention when it comes to potty training. Socializing your new puppy at an early age and continuing through adolescence will assure good behavior and maturity into adulthood.

My family was very nervous about ordering a puppy online but were very pleasantly relieved when we arrived at the facility. It was clean and welcoming and the staff took the time to meet with us to explain the puppy care tips we would need. Now that we have had Theo home for 3 weeks none of us can imagine life without him. He is such a happy and loving puppy! Thank you, premier pups.
We just love our Coco ???? We picked her up 6 weeks ago and cannot be any happier. The team at Premier Pups were professional and insured we were educated on what we needed to do to get her home and the first week at her new home. Although we had no issues, they followed up to make sure all was going well. Thank You Premier Pups!!!!
This is our sweet little boy Ripley. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the process from Premier. He is the best.
We have had our new puppy Gretchen (who we renamed Bella) for one week and we are absolutely in love with her. She is the sweetest little girl and so playful and loving. Our experience with Premier Pups was incredible from start to finish. Highly recommend using them to find your new family member.
This is my daughter Alison and our new puppy Oscar (Aiden born 4/10/17). After the loss of our first dog Kosmo (Yorkshire terrier) who died in February I didn't think she would ever be able to love another puppy that much. Well I was wrong! Oscar has fit right into our lives as though he has been here forever. Thank you for the opportunity to adopt/purchase Oscar! We just love him!
I have always wanted a small puppy that looked like a teddy bear. I saw this cute little puppy on Premier Pups website and finally took the plunge. The moment we picked him up at the airport we were in love. He has been the greatest addition to our family. He loves playing with our other dogs. They're all much bigger. We have a mastiff/pitbull, pitbull and a very very old cockerspaniel. Bernard loves to play with them. He's the littlest dog in the family with the biggest personality. I would recommend Premier Pup to anyone. Bernard was healthy when we picked him up at the airport. We followed the instructions giving, brought him to the vet the day after we picked him up. He was perfect and has been since. They truly care and want the best for their pups. They called daily to check on him the first couple of weeks. I'll admit that we weren't very responsive because of work and things but it was nice to know they cared so much. We got this adorable pup at 8 weeks, he is now almost 6 months old. We could not love him more. His personality is the best. He's loving, playful and yet independent. He is definitely hyper at times and snuggly other times. He has the cutest face and the best personality. He is protective of those he loves, human or animal. I could not be happier with the quality and service of Premier Pup. I would and have recommended Premier Pups to family and friends. Thank you Premier Pups!! ??
