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


Date: 4/25/2021
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.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Denise O'Connor
Loc: Mooresville, NC

We are so in love with our Teddy Bear dog. He is super smart, sweet, and loving. We named him Alexander, after Axelander Hamilton. It's a big name for a small dog, but he lives up to it. Alexander is now seven months old. He was super easy to house train.

Name: Maisie (Lindsay)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Melissa & Brian O'Rourke
Loc: Columbus, Ohio

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!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Chasidy
Loc: Pierre SD

I starting looking high and low for the perfect pup for our family when I came across premier pups. That’s where I found Emme (previously Julie) I can’t not give this place enough thumbs up!??. From the initial phone call to the follow up calls they were helpful and professional. Esme is the sweetest pup and has been such a blessing to our family already. And at 11 weeks she’s almost totally potty trained and is quickly learning commands. I will defiantly come back to premier pups for future puppies! 5 stars all the way! ?? ????????

Name: Harley (Tonya) and Lucy (Tiffany)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Todd Sherman
Loc: Radcliff, Ky

We began looking for our new pups after our 14 year old Pomeranian brothers passed several years ago, from the moment we did the research to finally picking them up yesterday the entire staff and process was incredible. Follow up call today to check on them with more care and concern on how they were adapting and if we had any questions. Took them to our Vet today (same one who cared for our poms) and she said the checkup was great with no concerns and they were well cared for during the 8 weeks with no concerns or issues. If you are planning to purchase Pups this is definitely the place. I will continue to refer any of my friends and family.

We had been looking online at a lot of breeders and just happened to come across Premier Pups and we seen this little girl and we instantly fell in love. Everyone at Premier Pups were wonderful and caring and answering all our questions, we live in ND, so we were concerned about the airplane ride in our cold weather. But they made sure to check the forecast every day before they booked the flight. And once she arrived they called and texted to see how she was doing. We've told all our friends and family about Premier Pups and how awesome they are. So from us and Anezka Letang THANK YOU!!!

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!

Harper has being amazing! Healthy puppy and very smart. Would definitely buy again from premierpups. She’s a great addition to my family!

Name: Charlie Blue
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leemor
Loc: New York, NY

I was so skeptical to buy a puppy online without even meeting him before the purchase. I researched the breeder and spoke to Premier Puppies over the phone. I also researched the breed to see if it would be a good fit for my lifestyle. After speaking with them over the phone and asking a lot of questions, I felt more comfortable with the purchase and decided to go through with it. I have had Charlie Blue for almost 4 months and I couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest, smartest, adaptable little thing, with great energy, and I get a lot of compliments all the time! Couldn't be happier with my purchase and couldn't imagine life now without him.
