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.

We got Moose (previously known as Abbott) from a friend who actually got him from Premier Pups. Moose is such a good boy, he is very sweet and adorable. He is also a healthy dog, we are really pleased with his health conditions. That’s one of the reasons we got another puppy from Premier Pups (which I will post a review soon as well)

This is my daughter Alison and our new puppy Oscar (Aiden born 4/10/17). After the loss of our first dog Kosmo (Yorkshire terrier) who died in February I didn't think she would ever be able to love another puppy that much. Well I was wrong! Oscar has fit right into our lives as though he has been here forever. Thank you for the opportunity to adopt/purchase Oscar! We just love him!

was planning to take a puppy from one year and finally made it. searched local sites and got Premier Pups website, was able to make a good offer and when finally went to pick it, my hearted melted away with its cute eyes.

I got clear instructions about food and sufficient food for 2 weeks. Helpline is available all the time. helpline gave me little confident that i dont have to be scared if some thing happens.

Name: Nazra (formerly Raquel)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Devin Hinzo
Loc: Cleveland Heights, OH

Our experience with Premier Pups was pretty fantastic. Nazra is a healthy, energetic, adorable Shih-Poo puppy and we are thankful that PP made her a part of our family! If you are buying a pup and are considering using PP, do it. They offer an amazing level of service. They are not sketchy and are honest and approachable. The instructions for giving medication overwhelmed me a bit, but they talked to me several times on the phone to walk me through the process. She was a hit at the Vet's office, and the doc commented on how healthy she was. Although I want our next dog to be a rescue, PP does such an amazing job with their pups and level of service I'm tempted to get another puppy through them! Thank you to PP, and to the breeder of this Shih-Poo. We are so happy to have her in our lives.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Melissa & Brian O'Rourke
Loc: Columbus, Ohio

Our little Maisie is the best puppy ever! She is full of energy, extremely well behaved and we swear she is already potty trained at 10 weeks! She has enjoyed having a big sister in the house - they are quickly becoming besties! Follow her on Instagram to see all her puppy adventures (ms_maisie_bear). She is having a blast in her new home! The team at Premier Pups was amazing to work with from the start. Not only did they spend hours with us answering questions about the different breeds we were considering, they continue to follow up with us to ensure Maisie has adjusted and is doing well. She was obviously in good hands at Premier Pups and it shows in her demeanor and behavior now that we have her home. We couldn't love her more ?? and can't say enough about Premier Pups!

Hewy just celebrated his 1st Birthday! We had an amazing experience with Premier Pups. The adoption process was seamless and his flight was uneventful. They were fantastic in keeping us up to date on his arrival and called us to check in on him once he got home. He is the apple of our eye and we couldn’t imagine life without him! Hewy is the second puppy we have adopted from Premier Pups!
