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.

TEDDY BEAR

Name: Shiloh previously milo
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Karishma
Loc: Bellingham, WA

We were looking for a small puppy, and came across premierpups.com. I was worried that it could be a scam, but as I read the reviews from other buyers and watched all the videos posted on the site showing how the pups are cared for and delivered, I took my chances. I went through the ordering process and Shiloh was flown to us in less than a week. We picked him up at the airport cargo area and he came with all the paperwork and everything needed to take care of a 6 week old puppy. We have had Shiloh since June of 2019, and he is spoiled and loved so much. I would recommend premier pups to anyone looking for a puppy. The service we received was amazing and beyond our expectation.

Loc: Saint Charles, Mo

My Lucy will be one year old this week. She has added so much happiness to my life. I drove to Premier Pups from St. Charles, Missouri and picked her up on my birthday. We bonded the whole way back and she has settled in great. I take her once or twice a week to Doggie Daycare where she is their favorite puppy. She has made several doggie friends also. Some that are her same breed and looks like her. Premier Pups did exactly what they said they would do during my entire purchase. They sent me updated photos while she was growing til the time I got to get her. They also called for several weeks to check on her. I would highly recommend this dog breeder for your next little one.

Name: Cannoli (formerly known as Abbott)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Elizabeth Capobianco
Loc: Connecticut

We were apprehensive about buying a puppy without meeting him first. When we called Premier Pups, they answered all of our questions and were super helpful. The drivers delivering him were in contact to let us know when they would be at the parking lot. Cannoli fit in with the family immediately. He was sent with food and preventative medications. Premier Pups called us several times to check in on him, see if we had questions, and make sure he is healthy, which our vet said he is! This company seems to truly care about their puppies. My family would DEFINITELY recommend this website for anyone who is looking to get a new addition to their family!

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.

Name: Gracie (Valerie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Marcia Casey
Loc: Pittsburgh

My wonderful faculty presented me with a check for a puppy when I retired. What wonderful colleagues and friends ! I had been searching several sites and watching for the 'perfect pup' to adopt. When Covid hit, I knew it was time to decide. I chose Premier Pups for their location (about 2 hours from our home) and based on the wonderful reviews of past customers. I was not disappointed. Gracie has been the ray of sunshine during the pandemic. My granddaughter is being taught remotely - which is stressful and isolating. Having a gentle pup to snuggle has been wonderful for her. The process was easy. The staff we worked with were patient, accommodating and so very kind. (And yes - she did become a huge Steelers fan !) Thank you, Premier Pups !! We love our Gracie!

Loc: Westerville

I spent several months looking for the right fit for me and several times almost hit that button to just buy a puppy. It though never felt right until I saw the face of this little guy. He was the "one", I knew it and still shuddered at the fact of paying so much money for a dog! I closed my eye and hit the purchase key, and received an immediate response that he was mine. I remember the day I was to pick him up, wondering "what did I do" I like to sleep in, get up and meditate, have my coffee etc and now my world was about to change!! I cannot tell you how much I love this little guy, he is perfect and by 8pm every night, he is done for the day. I put him in his very comfy crate and he sleeps until I come and get him in the morning! Getting up and going out in the cold is not a big deal to me, he is my buddy, I am so happy with my purchase, and the service that came with him.
