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 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!

We could not be happier with our little Blu! At 4 mts old now he is smart and well behaved. He is so sweet and adores us as much as we adore him. Premiere Pups was fantastic to work with, we were very pleased at the attention given to us and to Blu.

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.

Loc: Pearisburg Va

Hello: I usually don't do reviews but we are really happy with tucker. Over the last year we lost our three Poodles of 16 plus years. We were really missing them and came across Premier Pups. My wife and I were very apprehensive about buying a dog online without seeing them other than a picture. I have to say Tucker is a very loving intelligent dog and we are so happy that we bought him From Premier Pups. I was very impressed that they called several times to make sure he was doing OK and to see if we had any questions or concerns. I would not hesitate recommending this company to anyone that is looking for a puppy. Thank you For the great addition to our family.

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!

Name: Delilah
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Lynette
Loc: Dallas, TX

We purchased our little Delilah (formerly “Gili”) the day her pic was posted! I was extremely hesitant about purchasing a puppy online! Especially 3.5 weeks before she was actually available! I did a lot of research on Teddy Bear breeds prior to the purchase, and I asked a lot of questions! For instance, I asked what specific breeds were mixed, and I requested pictures of the parents. Our Teddy Bear pup is a Maltese/Shih tzu mix (Malshi). In my opinion, I would expect more information to be automatically given from Premier Pups... especially since a “Teddy Bear” breed is a vague category that includes many mixes... and especially for the price. I asked for an updated video or picture before she was flown out. I was extremely happy to get an adorable video! We ran into a few glitches with her microchip number, and I never received an initial email after purchasing her, only an automatic receipt. The issues were resolved quickly and politely! The employees I spoke to throughout the process were very kind and helpful! I really liked that I could text a question also. Her flight went smoothly, and we immediately fell in love with her! Premier Pups called 2-3 times after we received her to check in! She is now 13 weeks old, has been to the vet twice for check ups, and she is a healthy, happy, growing little puppy! We love our little Malshi! Overall, we’d do it all again to get Delilah! She’s pure joy! My advice to anyone making a puppy purchase is to be proactive in gathering as much information as you can, set up a vet appointment as Premier Pups recommends, evaluate the preventive meds and the needs of your specific pup, and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions! Thank you Premier Pups!

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!
