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: Jilly Bean
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Jenna
Loc: Ithaca, NY

Our family owns a Premier Pups teddy bear who we adore, so we felt comfortable working with Premier Pups when we were ready for our first pet. Jilly Bean (formerly “Mya”) has made our house a home! We had her potty trained in less than a week with no accidents since. She is so sweet, makes us laugh, and loves to play, cuddle, and go for walks. She’s about 12 lbs. and we always receive compliments regarding how soft her fur is. She loves being around people, other dogs, and children. We couldn’t love her more! We highly recommend Premier Pups, as we would certainly be returning customers if/when we decide to get Jilly a puppy sibling. :)

Name: Archie (formerly Adam)
Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Renton, WA

I was hesitant about buying a puppy online without getting a chance to see the little one first. And then the thought of a plane journey for a puppy was also scary. However premier pups really went out of the way to ensure us that this was perfectly fine. The response to queries at all times of the day have been prompt. Infact I once sent an email at midnight and heard back In 10 minutes. The customer service top notch. They have been following up everyday on him. It’s been a great experience so far. We have spoken to Denato, Chelsea, Michelle and Jacob FaceTimed is to see Archie the night before he flew home. Very grateful for this level of service. Especially for new owners like us. The extra reassurance Premier pups provides goes a long way. The only thing I would recommend is getting the peepoopalace before the pup arrives so that training is consistent. Right now he is ruling the house and is nothing short of a King.

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!

We absolutely love our little pup. She came home so healthy after the flight and they even had food and water in her kennel. Everything we needed was attached to her kennel and medicine to ensure her smooth transition. Detailed care instructions come a few days before so you’re really prepared. Thanks you so much Premier Pups for giving us our sweet little Holly. We got her yesterday and she has already become the light of our life.

Name: Maggie (formerly Maddie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Tuffo-Yeaw
Loc: Rochester, NY

I purchased Maggie in March of 2020 from Premier Pups. I can't say enough about their customer service. I called them so many times asking questions and they were always patient and helpful and they really seemed to know everything about Maggie as if she was the only dog there. I decided to put a deposit on Maggie and an employee there said that he would meet me half way the following Saturday to deliver her to me so I didn't have to drive the entire 6 hours. To make a long story short I wound up in the hospital and was intubated for days. My family and friends didn't want me to wake up and not have my puppy so they contacted Premier and they went above and beyond for my friends and met half way them instead of me. They gave them all the meds, foods and instructions that I could possible need to take care of her when I got home. Maggie has been nothing but a joy since I've gotten her. She loves people and dogs and she is so sweet, lovable, playful and adorable! I mean look at those eyes! She was a great decision and Premier pets made it happen! Love them!
