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: 10/26/2019
Name: Bailey
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Carla Fletcher
Loc: Lawrenceville Ga

I purchased Cassandra, now Bailey 4 months ago. My experience with Premier pups was amazing. Bailey is a happy rambunctious little puppy and love her!

Date: 6/15/2019
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.

Date: 2/17/2016
Name: Mushu aka Mushipoo (purchased as Aiden)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Chelsea Coartney
Loc: Anchorage, Alaska

I just got Mushu 2 days ago. I can tell you I was probably the most impatient customer Premier Pets ever had. I purchased Mushu as a presale pup and he wasnt available for a week after I purchased him, which was totally my fault. The staff at Premier pets went above and beyond and sent me videos and even tried to get him on a Sunday flight to Alaska. I dealt with Margot, Anthony, and Matthew. As soon as Mushu was shipped to me I refreshed his flight status every 5 minutes. I was so anxious for him to arrive. Just like any puppy owner, i was concerned for his health and his temperment. For the first few minutes he was shaking becuase he was scared (and probably cold) but after that, he was running around with our goldendoodle like he owned the place. You can tell Mushu was a happy puppy! Its only day 2 and hes already potty trained. Ive already recommended Premier pups to my friends who are planning to purchase a pup from them this week! Thank you to the Premier pups staff who sent us our new family member! and also a side note for all you people who think Premier pup uses puppy mills, I highly doubt it becase theres no way a puppy like Mushu comes from a puppy mill, he's way to happy and chubby haha. I would assume a puppy from a mill would be scared, shy, and sad looking. which is completely opposite then Mushu. I honestly have no idea how the staff doesnt want to take home all the puppies... Thank You!-Chelsea from Alaska

Name: Misty (Deb)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Phil and Maria Oehler
Loc: Grass Valley, CA

From the moment Misty arrived at Sacramento Airport and attendant exclaimed she was the cutest puppy he had ever seen, we have never stopped feeling so blessed. My son Des who accompanied me was still trying to get her out of her crate, and she was managing to kiss him. Most of our large family has met her, played with her and fallen in love with Misty. Premier Pets, we can't thank you enough for this bundle of love and energy.

Name: Griz (formerly know as Bruno)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Theodore Furstnau
Loc: Wytheville, Va

Nothing but great things to say about premier pups. Their facility was nice & clean. The staff was very professional & helpful with everything about our new fur baby. Our Griz is a healthy, affectionate, & spunky little pup. Every day he makes us laugh & smile. My family & I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve been wanting one of these teddy bear dogs for 3 years now & my only regret is not getting one sooner. If I ever purchase again premier pups will be my first choice!

Name: Bernard
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Dumond
Loc: Rochester, MA

I have always wanted a small puppy that looked like a teddy bear. I saw this cute little puppy on Premier Pups website and finally took the plunge. The moment we picked him up at the airport we were in love. He has been the greatest addition to our family. He loves playing with our other dogs. They're all much bigger. We have a mastiff/pitbull, pitbull and a very very old cockerspaniel. Bernard loves to play with them. He's the littlest dog in the family with the biggest personality. I would recommend Premier Pup to anyone. Bernard was healthy when we picked him up at the airport. We followed the instructions giving, brought him to the vet the day after we picked him up. He was perfect and has been since. They truly care and want the best for their pups. They called daily to check on him the first couple of weeks. I'll admit that we weren't very responsive because of work and things but it was nice to know they cared so much. We got this adorable pup at 8 weeks, he is now almost 6 months old. We could not love him more. His personality is the best. He's loving, playful and yet independent. He is definitely hyper at times and snuggly other times. He has the cutest face and the best personality. He is protective of those he loves, human or animal. I could not be happier with the quality and service of Premier Pup. I would and have recommended Premier Pups to family and friends. Thank you Premier Pups!! ??

Client: Matt & Bry Friend
Loc: Indiana

We could not be happier with our little Blu! At 4 mts old now he is smart and well behaved. He is so sweet and adores us as much as we adore him. Premiere Pups was fantastic to work with, we were very pleased at the attention given to us and to Blu.

Name: Maggie Mae ( formerly Emily)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: LuAnn Bunting
Loc: Mantoloking NJ

Our Maltipoo 17 years old , crossed the rainbow bridge almost 2 years ago. We weren’t sure if we ever wanted another puppy. We searched all over and came upon Premier Pups. We picked up Maggie Mae , a teddy bear, last night from Roger and we are all getting adjusted to each other. Of course she missed her much mama and siblings but hoping every night gets a little easier for her !

Name: Carmen Barone
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Carmen Barone
Loc: Kearny, NJ

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!!!
