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: 3/14/2020
Name: Devon
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Alisha
Loc: Michigan

I adopted Devon a little over a year ago, she is the best little thing to ever happen to our family. Working with Premier pups was great they were very friendly. One thing I would not do though is use the financing, it ended up costing way more money than it should have but that’s not premier pups fault. I would definitely get another dog from them.

Name: Leah
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Christine Dodds
Loc: OH

We found premierpups online. When we found the dogs we wanted to see we made an appointment. When we got there we asked to see the pups and they brought out 3 and we picked Leah. The facility is very clean the owner took us to the main house and we sat and talked. Never was he in a hurry. They sent us home with detailed instructions and meds for her. We got emails asking about her the first day and a call from the owner the next day. I would recommend anyone looking for a puppy to get one here. She is the cutest puppy ever!

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: Marcus Miller (formely Marty)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Rita Corbinook
Loc: Bay Point, California

Discovered PremierPups (PP) & the Teddy Bear breed. Several conversations offered assurance to me from PP of their knowledge, expertise and care. Shipping my pup to CA and their follow up care was excellent. He had a long flight day. When I reached out with questions and requested assistance someone immediately addressed my pup's needs. Marcus Miller is a vivacious and sweet pup. We're practicing social distancing due to COVID 19 so most family and friends have only met him virtually. Most folks are unfamiliar with Teddy Bears so he is a novelty and show stopper. While Marcus requires a lot of TLC because he is a puppy, now only 4 months old, I find him smart & easily trainable. Commands he's mastered are: Sit, Down & Dance. We're working on Stay, High Five and Roll over. He loves to play fetch ball. Recently completed his vaccinations we now walk to our neighborhood park where he runs to his heart's content. I'm in love with my Teddy Bear. He goes hiking and cycling with me in a backpack. We go everywhere together. He is a good little traveler. Although puppy excitable Marcus has been good with kids and adults. My experience with Premier Pups has been exceptional. I highly recommend Premier Pups. They stand behind their word with customer service truly caring for the health and well being of the puppies. THANK YOU Premier Pups!

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!!!

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.

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: Stanley
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Whitney
Loc: Detroit, Mi

I drove to Ohio almost 2 years ago to the day to adopt Stanley. I was nervous about what type of facility these dogs would be in and the care that they would have received. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to a beautiful home that was clean, inviting, and a wonderful environment. Over the last 2 years, Stanley has been the absolute best dog and my entire world! I am so happy that I found Premier Pups that lead me to my forever best friend. He has not had any health issues. I am looking into getting another puppy and would absolutely recommend Premier Pups for anyone looking for a new family member!
