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.

TEDDY BEAR

We love him. His is such a good boy and very playful. I've recommended premier pups to friends and family already

Name: Lucky (aka Toby)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Grandma to the puppy
Loc: Palm City, Florida

I was very skeptical, and I had major second thoughts...but I was totally wrong! Premier pups were every thing they professed to be and more! Adding a canine family member is not to be taken lightly. First a little history. My daughter and family had very sweet little Shitzu who sadly came from a puppy mill. "Doogie's" time with us was good while it lasted, even tho his health problems, typical of a puppy mill, plagued him most of his life. Never ever again would we make the mistake of getting a pup from a mill! After some deep and exhaustive research online AP/PP looked promising. These folks care deeply about the health and welfare of each puppy they place in a loving home. They are the middlemen between reputable licensed breeders and families looking for a quality puppy. AP/PP does all the vetting of breeders and their facilities so that you don't have to. They will NOT represent any breeder who does not conform to their high standards. Their reputation depends on it! 8,000+ reviews on their website confirm that. Many years of being in business confirm that. Lucky arrived wagging his tail and ready to play....no worse for wear tho he flew from Ohio. You could immediately tell that Lucky had been handled frequently and had been socialized. There is no struggle to take a shower or bath and he loves playing with the kids! There really are no words that can adequately express the quality of this organization. AP/PP are great communicators! No question is too small My daughter and I called several times before Lucky arrived...and I had "Major second thoughts" as his arrival grew closer. Each time, Mike or Matt or Ryan would talk me off the ledge! Their support did not stop after Lucky arrived. They called several times to see how the pup was adjusting, making suggestions and answering more questions. Their "after the sale" protocol is beyond impressive! Lucky's first flight was cancelled so his arrival was delayed by a day. Knowing that we had a couple of very dissappointed kids on this end, and a puppy who was in a crate ready to fly until it was cancelled..Mike took the time to bring the puppy to his family's home..giving Lucky a chance to get some exercise and play with the kids...and sent our kids a video...just to reassure them that all was well!!! Who does that? Ethical people who really care about the puppies they represent. Don't have any doubts..AP/PP are the real deal. And we thank them every time we get to enjoy our new adorable family member! AP/PP have my email and cell # if you need reassurance from a live customer!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Ronda
Loc: Dougas, Ak

I had a wonderful experience with Premier Pups. I would recommend them to anyone. We have had Banji for going 2 1/2 years and he has been an amazing dog/ best friend. He has been there for me through the passing of our other fur baby. ?? Banji has been so fun and enjoyable. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. We hope to purchase a new friend for Banji very soon... thank you Premier Pups for a job well done!!!!!

Loc: Harlan, KY

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!

Name: Nazra (formerly Raquel)
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.

Name: Stanley
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Whitney
Loc: Detroit, Mi

I drove to Ohio almost 2 years ago to the day to adopt Stanley. I was nervous about what type of facility these dogs would be in and the care that they would have received. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to a beautiful home that was clean, inviting, and a wonderful environment. Over the last 2 years, Stanley has been the absolute best dog and my entire world! I am so happy that I found Premier Pups that lead me to my forever best friend. He has not had any health issues. I am looking into getting another puppy and would absolutely recommend Premier Pups for anyone looking for a new family member!

I could not be happier that we got our girl here! They sent us with detailed care instructions and even checked in regularly to see how she was doing. We are so in love with her and I can’t imagine going anywhere else if we should decide to get another!
