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.
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.
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.

Enzo is our first puppy. I was apprehensive about having a puppy, but he is an absolute treasure! Extremely intelligent, and loads of fun. Premier pups made our lives just a little happier!
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! ??
We couldn’t be more happy with our fur baby! He truly is what a healthy puppy should be. Ozzie (formerly known as Neuman) is great with our kids and is loved by everyone. Our experience with Premierpups could not have been any better, they are a Five star company who genuinely cares about all there pups!
Scarlett has been has an awesome addition to our family! It had been quite a while since we had a dog but working with the professionals at Premier and follow up calls put my mind at ease! I have already shared your site with others!!
I have always wanted a small puppy that looked like a teddy bear. I saw this cute little puppy on Premier Pups website and finally took the plunge. The moment we picked him up at the airport we were in love. He has been the greatest addition to our family. He loves playing with our other dogs. They're all much bigger. We have a mastiff/pitbull, pitbull and a very very old cockerspaniel. Bernard loves to play with them. He's the littlest dog in the family with the biggest personality. I would recommend Premier Pup to anyone. Bernard was healthy when we picked him up at the airport. We followed the instructions giving, brought him to the vet the day after we picked him up. He was perfect and has been since. They truly care and want the best for their pups. They called daily to check on him the first couple of weeks. I'll admit that we weren't very responsive because of work and things but it was nice to know they cared so much. We got this adorable pup at 8 weeks, he is now almost 6 months old. We could not love him more. His personality is the best. He's loving, playful and yet independent. He is definitely hyper at times and snuggly other times. He has the cutest face and the best personality. He is protective of those he loves, human or animal. I could not be happier with the quality and service of Premier Pup. I would and have recommended Premier Pups to family and friends. Thank you Premier Pups!! ??
I received my little teddy bear right before Christmas. She is absolutely amazing. The whole process of bringing her from Ohio to NY was great. My family loves having a pup in the house. She adorable and so loving all she wants to do is have someone rub her belly and give her kisses. I was a little worried about getting a pup without seeing her in my hands. But it was the best choice I ever made. Thanks
This is our sweet little boy Ripley. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the process from Premier. He is the best.
We picked up Piper (fka Arielle) on 7/7/2018. She is the sweetest puppy and has become the center of our family. Our experience with Premier Pups was fantastic. The website was easy to navigate and made it easy for me to fall in love with my little puppy. I made an offer and received a text within 20 minutes to discuss it over the phone. I’m a first-time dog owner and Premier Pups made it so easy to arrange the purchase and pick-up. Piper is healthy and happy. I’ve referred friends to this site because I was so pleased with my puppy and the service we received.
Pandora is an amazing addition to our family. She is so loving and great with the kids. She wakes me up every morning by nibbling on my nose when she needs to go potty. I would recommend a Teddy Bear breed to anyone looking for a smaller dog. Thank you Premier Pups!
We waited 6 years until we decided on a new fur baby When we saw our little girl with Premier Pups it was love at first sight. Very professional staff & helped me with all my questions with having a young pup.
