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.

Temperament

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.

Exercise

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.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Della Spencer
Loc: Princeton, WV

As a first time pet owner, I was nervous and unsure what to expect. The process and follow up was extremely helpful. Now, I can’t imagine life without Maddie. She is so friendly and affectionate! She is almost 8 months old and still as sweet as she was on day 1. If you are on the fence, I would definitely recommend the addition of one of these little ones! Thank you Premier Pups, my life has been greatly enriched by Maddie Rose! ??

Name: Charlie Blue
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leemor
Loc: New York, NY

I was so skeptical to buy a puppy online without even meeting him before the purchase. I researched the breeder and spoke to Premier Puppies over the phone. I also researched the breed to see if it would be a good fit for my lifestyle. After speaking with them over the phone and asking a lot of questions, I felt more comfortable with the purchase and decided to go through with it. I have had Charlie Blue for almost 4 months and I couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest, smartest, adaptable little thing, with great energy, and I get a lot of compliments all the time! Couldn't be happier with my purchase and couldn't imagine life now without him.

Paris is a total blessing to our family, we celebrated her birthday just a month ago. She is the best. She was easy to potty train and teach. Paris is always a delight. We had a great experience at Premier Pups and it was definitely the right place to purchase a puppy. Premier Pups is the BEST place to purchase a dog! The staff were kind and very helpful. I wouldn't change a thing! It was a great experience!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Bryle Mintz
Loc: Dallas, Texas

My sweet pup Gizmo arrived on May 20th. He was so scared and frightened. By the 3rd day, you would never know that Gizmo was new to my home!! He runs this place as if this has been his home since birth!! LOL! I introduced him to the rest of the family, my Sister and Nephews, and though he was a bit reluctant, it wasn't long before he was playing with them as if he's known them all his life. Gizmo is a small Bundle of energy and joy!! I Love him soooo much!! He is my precious baby boy forever!!

We received our beautiful puppy , in June 2020. She’s been a delightful and wonderful pup! Even though she is small she was easily potty trained ! Premier pups was absolutely wonderful, they answered all my questions ( which were many!) , always politely. Their care and attention to both me and Winnie was terrific. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Name: Harley (Tonya) and Lucy (Tiffany)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Todd Sherman
Loc: Radcliff, Ky

We began looking for our new pups after our 14 year old Pomeranian brothers passed several years ago, from the moment we did the research to finally picking them up yesterday the entire staff and process was incredible. Follow up call today to check on them with more care and concern on how they were adapting and if we had any questions. Took them to our Vet today (same one who cared for our poms) and she said the checkup was great with no concerns and they were well cared for during the 8 weeks with no concerns or issues. If you are planning to purchase Pups this is definitely the place. I will continue to refer any of my friends and family.

We waited 6 years until we decided on a new fur baby When we saw our little girl with Premier Pups it was love at first sight. Very professional staff & helped me with all my questions with having a young pup.

Name: Archie (formerly Adam)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Ann Samuel
Loc: Renton, WA

I was hesitant about buying a puppy online without getting a chance to see the little one first. And then the thought of a plane journey for a puppy was also scary. However premier pups really went out of the way to ensure us that this was perfectly fine. The response to queries at all times of the day have been prompt. Infact I once sent an email at midnight and heard back In 10 minutes. The customer service top notch. They have been following up everyday on him. It’s been a great experience so far. We have spoken to Denato, Chelsea, Michelle and Jacob FaceTimed is to see Archie the night before he flew home. Very grateful for this level of service. Especially for new owners like us. The extra reassurance Premier pups provides goes a long way. The only thing I would recommend is getting the peepoopalace before the pup arrives so that training is consistent. Right now he is ruling the house and is nothing short of a King.
