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

Name: Lucky (aka Toby)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Grandma to the puppy
Loc: Palm City, Florida

I was very skeptical, and I had major second thoughts...but I was totally wrong! Premier pups were every thing they professed to be and more! Adding a canine family member is not to be taken lightly. First a little history. My daughter and family had very sweet little Shitzu who sadly came from a puppy mill. "Doogie's" time with us was good while it lasted, even tho his health problems, typical of a puppy mill, plagued him most of his life. Never ever again would we make the mistake of getting a pup from a mill! After some deep and exhaustive research online AP/PP looked promising. These folks care deeply about the health and welfare of each puppy they place in a loving home. They are the middlemen between reputable licensed breeders and families looking for a quality puppy. AP/PP does all the vetting of breeders and their facilities so that you don't have to. They will NOT represent any breeder who does not conform to their high standards. Their reputation depends on it! 8,000+ reviews on their website confirm that. Many years of being in business confirm that. Lucky arrived wagging his tail and ready to play....no worse for wear tho he flew from Ohio. You could immediately tell that Lucky had been handled frequently and had been socialized. There is no struggle to take a shower or bath and he loves playing with the kids! There really are no words that can adequately express the quality of this organization. AP/PP are great communicators! No question is too small My daughter and I called several times before Lucky arrived...and I had "Major second thoughts" as his arrival grew closer. Each time, Mike or Matt or Ryan would talk me off the ledge! Their support did not stop after Lucky arrived. They called several times to see how the pup was adjusting, making suggestions and answering more questions. Their "after the sale" protocol is beyond impressive! Lucky's first flight was cancelled so his arrival was delayed by a day. Knowing that we had a couple of very dissappointed kids on this end, and a puppy who was in a crate ready to fly until it was cancelled..Mike took the time to bring the puppy to his family's home..giving Lucky a chance to get some exercise and play with the kids...and sent our kids a video...just to reassure them that all was well!!! Who does that? Ethical people who really care about the puppies they represent. Don't have any doubts..AP/PP are the real deal. And we thank them every time we get to enjoy our new adorable family member! AP/PP have my email and cell # if you need reassurance from a live customer!

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.

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!

Charlie is almost 8 months old, he is an amazing dog, companion and protector (lol) He thinks he is the 'Mayor" of the neighborhood always looking out the front door, barking at anyone walking on the sidewalk, he has always slept thru the night and is a treat snob.....I am very pleased with my purchase, and making him a part of my life.

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.
