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.

This is Devin and I got her almost 2 years ago and she is the best dog I could ever ask for! I would get another dog from premierpups again! She is the best addition to our family and the best fur sister to my son ?? We absolutely love her!!
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.
Just to let you Daisy turned 1 today We just love her to death..She has brought so much joy to our family and she is spoiled rotten... Thank you so Much......
Great experience working with Premier Pups! Excellent communication! Easy transitioning our Sammy into our home.
Our little Maisie is the best puppy ever! She is full of energy, extremely well behaved and we swear she is already potty trained at 10 weeks! She has enjoyed having a big sister in the house - they are quickly becoming besties! Follow her on Instagram to see all her puppy adventures (ms_maisie_bear). She is having a blast in her new home! The team at Premier Pups was amazing to work with from the start. Not only did they spend hours with us answering questions about the different breeds we were considering, they continue to follow up with us to ensure Maisie has adjusted and is doing well. She was obviously in good hands at Premier Pups and it shows in her demeanor and behavior now that we have her home. We couldn't love her more ?? and can't say enough about Premier Pups!
Pandora is an amazing addition to our family. She is so loving and great with the kids. She wakes me up every morning by nibbling on my nose when she needs to go potty. I would recommend a Teddy Bear breed to anyone looking for a smaller dog. Thank you Premier Pups!
I received my puppies on 1/9/17 I am already in love with them. They are eating the hard food and drinking water after first night. They are both semi potty trained already. They are a joy to watch ( brothers play). Premier pups are great to work with and I have already referred several co-workers to their site. Thank you so much
Bentley is the perfect pet. Very loyal and loving. We have not had a dog in our family in over 30 years so it was a big adjustment for us. Premier Pups has been absolutely fantastic. I have called several times before purchasing the pup and after. They are wonderful. I would highly recommend them. Their pups are top of the line.
Premier Pups is an absolute lifesaver! I was able to buy a beautiful 8 week old female teddy bear puppy named Cyndi later named Snowball! We’ve had her now for a little over 2 weeks and she’s absolutely adorable! Snowball’s breed doesn’t shed, hardly ever barks, she’s extremely calm & very easy to train. I live in New Jersey which is part of the tri-state area obviously, all breeders in this area are either scam artists or so severely overly priced to the point that only rich people can afford a breed like this. My 5 & 6 year-olds both wanted a puppy. However, we live in an apartment and finding a breed that’s suitable for this type of lifestyle & home was not an easy task, after some research and a lot of reading, I discovered this breed. Unfortunately, we had a very hard time finding a reputable breeder that was able to work with my families budget & needs. Most importantly, take care of the puppy and get her to us safely with all of the love, care & medical attention that she would possibly need. Premier Pups was able to do all of this and more she arrived safely at the cargo unit at Newark international airport and we brought her home. She has been a loving part of our family ever since & an absolute dream to care for! I can’t thank Premier Pups enough they are a phenomenal amazing & Premier breeder who cares about the puppy’s & the new owner’s needs equally! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
