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.

Name: Louie
Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Delaware, Ohio

We got our Teddy Bear over two years ago from Premier Pups and it has honestly been one of the best decisions we ever made. This company made the process very easy and we were really impressed with the follow up and after care support. Louie has brought so much love and joy to our home that we cannot imagine life without him. We are so excited to be adding a little sister Teddy Bear puppy to our family which we can't wait to bring home from Premier Pups in just a few short weeks.

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.

Client: A. M.
Loc: Niceville, FL

what a doll Tucker is! he has added SO MUCH FUN to our family! buying online seemed so strange and scary, but every contact we had with Premier increased our confidence a little bit - then when we finally went for it we were scared all over again. HOWEVER, it ended up being a FANTASTIC experience. I was kept informed all day on his "fly home" day. He showed up on his plane and was safely packed into his little carrier. He came supplied with tons of stuff to help ensure he got settled easily and stayed healthy. Premier reached out multiple times during that first week+ to check on him and see if we had any questions or concerns. He was well taken care of before we got him and has the sweetest temperament and the cutest personality. He looked just like his profile pic from the site (THAT was a big fear of ours -- ordering just based on a picture -- but he was just the same as his picture showed. yay!!) He was a surprise for our 9 yr old. After having him for a day or so, she declared that her "life is now complete!". lol. Now, after going through the process, I would CONFIDENTLY RECOMMEND Premier and we would ABSOLUTELY use them again if we decided to add another baby to our family!

We got Loki ( formerly Sosa) in November 2020. Premier was amazing to work with from the start. They give you so much information from the very beginning which made it an easy transition for both pup and parents. Loki has been a blessing in our family! My boys love how playful he is and he has everyone in the house wrapped around his tiny paw!! I don’t know what I would do without this little mommas boy! Premier was so easy to work with and made sure even after we had Loki home that he was doing well with his new home! Thank you so much for bringing this small bundle of love to our home!

Client: Chasidy

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! ?? ????????
