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.

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.
We couldn’t be more happy with our fur baby! He truly is what a healthy puppy should be. Ozzie (formerly known as Neuman) is great with our kids and is loved by everyone. Our experience with Premierpups could not have been any better, they are a Five star company who genuinely cares about all there pups!
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.
