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.

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!!

Name: Milo (formerly Oberon)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leepi
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

Oberon (now Milo) is the sweetest Teddy Bear puppy we could've ever asked for. After trying for months to adopt a puppy/dog through various rescues with no luck during the pandemic, we stumbled upon Premier Pups thanks to friends who also found their sweet puppy with them. Premier Pups is a super reliable company and take the care to put first time customers, like my family, at ease. I had no idea what to expect flying an 8 week old puppy from Ohio to Los Angeles! But, Premier Pups staff checked in with me at every step of the process! They provided updates on the day Milo was put on his flight, they sent me post-puppy care instructions, sent food and preventative medications, called me and sent texts to make sure all was well and have been available for any questions. I 100% recommend Premier Pups if you're searching for a reputable company that will help you find your puppy. I have recommended 3 other families who all adopted various breeds from Premier Pups too. Milo is a year old now and is part of our family. He is sweet, lovable, healthy and is the neighborhood social butterfly. He is living his best life ever and we are so lucky to have been able to adopt him during this very tough year.

Name: Nikko
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Nick
Loc: Tampa, FL

This has been the best experience. I could not have asked for a more healthier puppy. Nikko even came pre-loaded with fetch and can wink! The customer service was exceptional. They've checked in on me more times since Nikko has arrived then my family has. The vet said their health protocol was overly protective, but really appreciated the precautions they took. Thank you so so much for everything. You made my life so much happier!

Name: Maggie (formerly Maddie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Tuffo-Yeaw
Loc: Rochester, NY

I purchased Maggie in March of 2020 from Premier Pups. I can't say enough about their customer service. I called them so many times asking questions and they were always patient and helpful and they really seemed to know everything about Maggie as if she was the only dog there. I decided to put a deposit on Maggie and an employee there said that he would meet me half way the following Saturday to deliver her to me so I didn't have to drive the entire 6 hours. To make a long story short I wound up in the hospital and was intubated for days. My family and friends didn't want me to wake up and not have my puppy so they contacted Premier and they went above and beyond for my friends and met half way them instead of me. They gave them all the meds, foods and instructions that I could possible need to take care of her when I got home. Maggie has been nothing but a joy since I've gotten her. She loves people and dogs and she is so sweet, lovable, playful and adorable! I mean look at those eyes! She was a great decision and Premier pets made it happen! Love them!

Name: was Kenny but now Charlie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Lexie
Loc: Maysville, MO

I originally got Charlie so I could have a companion while my boyfriend was away. But as soon as he arrived he soon became much more than a companion, he became my very best friend. He is the sweetest, funniest, and craziest dog I have ever owned and stole my heart immediately upon meeting him. He is so laid back and easy to train. I wouldn’t rather have any other dog.

Client: Jack Gordon
Loc: Shepherdsville, KY

This is our sweet little boy Ripley. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the process from Premier. He is the best.

Date: 6/13/2018
Name: Nazra (formerly Raquel)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Devin Hinzo
Loc: Cleveland Heights, OH

Our experience with Premier Pups was pretty fantastic. Nazra is a healthy, energetic, adorable Shih-Poo puppy and we are thankful that PP made her a part of our family! If you are buying a pup and are considering using PP, do it. They offer an amazing level of service. They are not sketchy and are honest and approachable. The instructions for giving medication overwhelmed me a bit, but they talked to me several times on the phone to walk me through the process. She was a hit at the Vet's office, and the doc commented on how healthy she was. Although I want our next dog to be a rescue, PP does such an amazing job with their pups and level of service I'm tempted to get another puppy through them! Thank you to PP, and to the breeder of this Shih-Poo. We are so happy to have her in our lives.

Name: Holly
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Powell
Loc: California

We absolutely love our little pup. She came home so healthy after the flight and they even had food and water in her kennel. Everything we needed was attached to her kennel and medicine to ensure her smooth transition. Detailed care instructions come a few days before so you’re really prepared. Thanks you so much Premier Pups for giving us our sweet little Holly. We got her yesterday and she has already become the light of our life.

Date: 12/2/2017
Name: Wrigley formerly Sully
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Shelby Olstad
Loc: Middleton, Wisconsin

Our pup was born on 11/7/16 as Sully. She is very playful and sweet. We would love to find out about her siblings! One of them was Bear, but we can't remember the other(s). Thanks to premier pups we have the perfect addition to our family!
