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: Devon
Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Michigan

I adopted Devon a little over a year ago, she is the best little thing to ever happen to our family. Working with Premier pups was great they were very friendly. One thing I would not do though is use the financing, it ended up costing way more money than it should have but that’s not premier pups fault. I would definitely get another dog from them.

We are so joyful with our Zoey! Purchasing a puppy from an online site so far away for our home made me a bit nervous, but let me tell you...

Zoey has filled our home with so much joy and happiness, thank you for all your assistance and raising such a healthy fur baby Premier Pups! :)

Just received Jax today!! His flight went well and he was very timid and shy when we first arrived home (expected). But soon he was chasing the cats and now he's sleeping like a good little puppy, I couldn't be happier.

We just love our Coco ???? We picked her up 6 weeks ago and cannot be any happier. The team at Premier Pups were professional and insured we were educated on what we needed to do to get her home and the first week at her new home. Although we had no issues, they followed up to make sure all was going well. Thank You Premier Pups!!!!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Alexa
Loc: Niceville, FL

we've had Tucker for over a year now (Oct, 2019) and he gets more precious every day. He is SUCH a perfect part of our family. Every step of picking him out and flying him to us here in Florida went so smoothly. He was healthy and adjusted easily to his new life with us. Premier was great to follow up with us multiple times the first few weeks to check in him. Tucker is a GREAT pup and i would 100% buy from Premier again!

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!

We adopted our sweet Barkley (formerly Theo) almost a year ago. I just want to let you know that he has added so much love and joy to our family. We just think he is precious and we love him so much. If we would ever adopt again, we would definitely come back to this place. Everything was top notch.
