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.

I starting looking high and low for the perfect pup for our family when I came across premier pups. That’s where I found Emme (previously Julie) I can’t not give this place enough thumbs up!??. From the initial phone call to the follow up calls they were helpful and professional. Esme is the sweetest pup and has been such a blessing to our family already. And at 11 weeks she’s almost totally potty trained and is quickly learning commands. I will defiantly come back to premier pups for future puppies! 5 stars all the way! ?? ????????

We welcomed Barry, formerly known as Bernard, nearly a year ago in January 2017! Working with staff at Premier Pups went smoothly and were so friendly and helpful from start to finish. They even called to check on Barry on the way home and days after! Barry has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives and we have considered adding a little sister in the upcoming future! He is well-mannered, friendly, loves chasing after sticks and leaves, along with sticking his head out the window during car rides! We love our little guy and can't imagine life without. Big thanks to Premier Pups for Barry!
