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 had been looking online at a lot of breeders and just happened to come across Premier Pups and we seen this little girl and we instantly fell in love. Everyone at Premier Pups were wonderful and caring and answering all our questions, we live in ND, so we were concerned about the airplane ride in our cold weather. But they made sure to check the forecast every day before they booked the flight. And once she arrived they called and texted to see how she was doing. We've told all our friends and family about Premier Pups and how awesome they are. So from us and Anezka Letang THANK YOU!!!

I was so skeptical to buy a puppy online without even meeting him before the purchase. I researched the breeder and spoke to Premier Puppies over the phone. I also researched the breed to see if it would be a good fit for my lifestyle. After speaking with them over the phone and asking a lot of questions, I felt more comfortable with the purchase and decided to go through with it. I have had Charlie Blue for almost 4 months and I couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest, smartest, adaptable little thing, with great energy, and I get a lot of compliments all the time! Couldn't be happier with my purchase and couldn't imagine life now without him.

As a first time pet owner, I was nervous and unsure what to expect. The process and follow up was extremely helpful. Now, I can’t imagine life without Maddie. She is so friendly and affectionate! She is almost 8 months old and still as sweet as she was on day 1. If you are on the fence, I would definitely recommend the addition of one of these little ones! Thank you Premier Pups, my life has been greatly enriched by Maddie Rose! ??

I am so happy I got my Teddy Bear Pup from Premier Pups. I absolutely love her, I drove 6.5 hours to pick her up and it was well worth it. Azorah is the name I chose but Kelly was what they named her. She is playful and so adorable. I definitely will recommend them to all my friends and family. I even posted them on my social media sights. Thanks Premier Pups!

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!

Not only have you helped us to raise money for Make-A-Wish, you have made many families happy with the addition of their new puppies! We wouldn't partner with anyone else! Thanks so much!
