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.

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!
Hello, Louie has been a wonderful addition to our family. We have had him a year in May and he has been so easy to train. He is very eager to please, This is a picture of his first snowfall. He LOVES the snow! He is part of our family!
We got our cutie today. There was no issues at ALL! I paid online, walked in, they described what I needed to do in detail, and went back to get my beauty! Facility was so clean! I’m very happy and will highly recommend.
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!
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!
Premier Pups service has been excellent! Would highly recommend. Zsa Zsa (formerly Bailey) has been an absolute blessing to our family. You can rest assured with Premier Pups that they deal with only the best breeders. Zsa Zsa came to us perfectly healthy and she has such a sweet disposition. The support and care Premier Pups provides is truly exceptional and first class all the way for both you and your fur baby!
I was looking for a Christmas present (for myself) when saw Cici! They had a puppy that shared my name LOL! I had to have her! She is the sweetest little thing. Extremely adaptable and LOVES her big brother Wicket (shih tzu/Maltese mix) and all 5 of my kids! She is extremely healthy and all the accessories sent with her are great. Can't wait until we "need" another puppy!
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!
