TIFFANY IS A SHIH TZU/MALTESE CROSS.
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.

Premier Pups is an absolute lifesaver! I was able to buy a beautiful 8 week old female teddy bear puppy named Cyndi later named Snowball! We’ve had her now for a little over 2 weeks and she’s absolutely adorable! Snowball’s breed doesn’t shed, hardly ever barks, she’s extremely calm & very easy to train. I live in New Jersey which is part of the tri-state area obviously, all breeders in this area are either scam artists or so severely overly priced to the point that only rich people can afford a breed like this. My 5 & 6 year-olds both wanted a puppy. However, we live in an apartment and finding a breed that’s suitable for this type of lifestyle & home was not an easy task, after some research and a lot of reading, I discovered this breed. Unfortunately, we had a very hard time finding a reputable breeder that was able to work with my families budget & needs. Most importantly, take care of the puppy and get her to us safely with all of the love, care & medical attention that she would possibly need. Premier Pups was able to do all of this and more she arrived safely at the cargo unit at Newark international airport and we brought her home. She has been a loving part of our family ever since & an absolute dream to care for! I can’t thank Premier Pups enough they are a phenomenal amazing & Premier breeder who cares about the puppy’s & the new owner’s needs equally! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
We lost our sweet cavalier Elvis in January and I did not think I would be ready for a long time to get another dog. Just doing research I found Premier Pups and the Teddy Bear breed and I was hooked. Never have I ever just picked a pet from a picture and I was very nervous. But her face just spoke to me and we took a chance. Everything went very smoothly, all questions answered right away. The only downside was not being able to get updated photos between 6 and 8 week period, but after it was explained why I reluctantly understood and they sent pics as soon as she got to their facility . Pick up was just as smooth! Lexi is amazing, she did great on the 7 hour car ride home, sleeps through the night, has the best personality, she is so smart, she learned sit and down the first week home! She is everything we never knew we needed and we are in love! She goes everywhere and is so well behaved! I think Elvis would approve for sure!
what a doll Tucker is! he has added SO MUCH FUN to our family! buying online seemed so strange and scary, but every contact we had with Premier increased our confidence a little bit - then when we finally went for it we were scared all over again. HOWEVER, it ended up being a FANTASTIC experience. I was kept informed all day on his "fly home" day. He showed up on his plane and was safely packed into his little carrier. He came supplied with tons of stuff to help ensure he got settled easily and stayed healthy. Premier reached out multiple times during that first week+ to check on him and see if we had any questions or concerns. He was well taken care of before we got him and has the sweetest temperament and the cutest personality. He looked just like his profile pic from the site (THAT was a big fear of ours -- ordering just based on a picture -- but he was just the same as his picture showed. yay!!) He was a surprise for our 9 yr old. After having him for a day or so, she declared that her "life is now complete!". lol. Now, after going through the process, I would CONFIDENTLY RECOMMEND Premier and we would ABSOLUTELY use them again if we decided to add another baby to our family!
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.
We are so in love with our Teddy Bear dog. He is super smart, sweet, and loving. We named him Alexander, after Axelander Hamilton. It's a big name for a small dog, but he lives up to it. Alexander is now seven months old. He was super easy to house train.
We were apprehensive about buying a puppy without meeting him first. When we called Premier Pups, they answered all of our questions and were super helpful. The drivers delivering him were in contact to let us know when they would be at the parking lot. Cannoli fit in with the family immediately. He was sent with food and preventative medications. Premier Pups called us several times to check in on him, see if we had questions, and make sure he is healthy, which our vet said he is! This company seems to truly care about their puppies. My family would DEFINITELY recommend this website for anyone who is looking to get a new addition to their family!
Nipsey is my baby he is so spoiled I have one human child who is a boy who is growing up an doing his own thing so Nipsey is my second child my baby he is loved by everybody he is doing great ! I would def recommend premier pups I love my new fur baby !!!!
Love our new puppy. She is everything they said she would be and more. Thanks Premier Pups!!!
Very highly recommend Premier pups if you are purchasing a fur baby! Excellent service from day 1. They are very caring to both the pups and to myself. Thank you to all at Premier but, especially Kacee and Matt. I will always recommend Premier.
Nothing but great things to say about premier pups. Their facility was nice & clean. The staff was very professional & helpful with everything about our new fur baby. Our Griz is a healthy, affectionate, & spunky little pup. Every day he makes us laugh & smile. My family & I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve been wanting one of these teddy bear dogs for 3 years now & my only regret is not getting one sooner. If I ever purchase again premier pups will be my first choice!
