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.

Premier pups has been beyond helpful from our initial researching phase to post purchase once we had Lucky home. Their kind check ins after the pup arrives is truly exceptional. Not only has Premier Pups proactively reached out via phone or text but they have also been very fast and responsive when we called them with questions. It is a huge adjustment for pups this tiny to fly on a plane and come to their new home and the AP team truly makes the experience smooth and happy for puppy and owner alike. We have even had many interactions throughout our experience w/ the CEO of AP who is knowledgable and compassionate like his staff. This sweet little pup is healthy and well adjusted. He fits right in to our family and our 11 and 8 year old just adore him. We all do! Thank you AP for the experience and top notch customer service!
We are in love with this baby and very happy with primer pups and how everything from purchasing to getting her home was handled! She is perfect and so full of spunk! So loving and affectionate and has settled right into her new home! Thank you primier pups!!!!? They follow up on their puppy's and make sure you have everything you need to a good start! And always are there with any questions you have!
We got this little boy on the 2nd of January and he has been a bundle of joy ever since. Clyde goes from being playful to cuddly throughout the day and fits right into the family. He was comfortable since the first day and we couldn’t of asked for a better dog. Smooth transition and very healthy so far. This is our third puppy from premier and we are very pleased once again with how everything turned out.
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!! ??
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!!!!!
We were hesitant to buy a puppy online, but after reading the reviews and speaking with several members of the Premier Pups team, we felt assured that we are dealing with people you love and care for their pups. We have had Berit (Declan) for a little over a month now and love him more and more each day. We highly recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a loving puppy.
Ivy is a cute, playful, and loving puppy.
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!
This is Devin and I got her almost 2 years ago and she is the best dog I could ever ask for! I would get another dog from premierpups again! She is the best addition to our family and the best fur sister to my son ?? We absolutely love her!!
My daughter had asked for a puppy right around Christmas this year, so I started looking online at different breeds. I wasn't impressed with the selection of local breeders, so I expanded my view & stumbled across Premier Pups. I spent over two hours reviewing & reading the site details before deciding on the Teddy Bear breed. Once decided, I came across Ms. Perfect's picture... I showed it to my daughter, and she instantly feel in love. I was skeptical about the whole purchase process of a puppy online, but Premier Pups made it simple & put me at ease. They answered all my calls & questions regarding our puppy, and we she arrived at the airport, we were excited to meet her in person. Peanut Butter has been the sweetest puppy! She's incredibly healthy & smart. Premier Pups called & emailed a few times after she arrived to make sure the puppy was doing well... it was nice knowing they cared so much. I have recommended Premier Pups to several people and would look to them again if we decided to expand our family any more. We love our new family member & couldn't be more pleased!
