About the Breed

The Teddy Bear is a designer hybrid that was first bred in the year 2000, by 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 by dog lovers worldwide.  

Appearance and Grooming

As their name suggests, Teddy Bear dogs 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 that are 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, Teddy Bear dogs are highly affectionate with high levels of obedience. They are renowned for their gentle nature and are known to bark only when they feel the need to alert their owner. This attribute makes them a great choice 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. Teddy Bear puppies thrive in the company of others.

Exercise

The Teddy Bear is not a highly active dog. 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 sometimes. 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 adorable puppy at an early age and continuing through adolescence will ensure good behavior and maturity into adulthood.
