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.

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!
I was looking for a Christmas present (for myself) when saw Cici! They had a puppy that shared my name LOL! I had to have her! She is the sweetest little thing. Extremely adaptable and LOVES her big brother Wicket (shih tzu/Maltese mix) and all 5 of my kids! She is extremely healthy and all the accessories sent with her are great. Can't wait until we "need" another puppy!
I searched everywhere for my ideal puppy and somewhere I felt comfortable enough to make such an important purchase and finally I found Premier Pups. I knew the second a saw Edison that he was the perfect dog and without hesitation decided to buy him. The process was extremely efficient and smooth! Edison is my hiking, swimming, golfing, and napping buddy and he truly could not be more perfect. Forever grateful to Premier Pups for giving my my very best friend!

Andy is a little joy!! The flight process was seamless. Andy is a great little dog so happy I chose premier pups!
I was so scared to purchase a puppy online and get him shipped to me but the staff at PremierPups put all my worries to rest. From the initial purchase to the flight to checking in to make sure he was ok the staff here are amazing. Yoshi is now 10 months old and my best friend. He is incredibly healthy and well tempered you can just tell how well he was taken care of. I can’t see my life without him now, he is my everything. Thank you to everyone at premier pups who helped me.
I had a wonderful experience with Premier Pups. I would recommend them to anyone. We have had Banji for going 2 1/2 years and he has been an amazing dog/ best friend. He has been there for me through the passing of our other fur baby. ?? Banji has been so fun and enjoyable. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. We hope to purchase a new friend for Banji very soon... thank you Premier Pups for a job well done!!!!!
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!
