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

Name: Charlie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Denise Amato
Loc: Westerville

I spent several months looking for the right fit for me and several times almost hit that button to just buy a puppy. It though never felt right until I saw the face of this little guy. He was the "one", I knew it and still shuddered at the fact of paying so much money for a dog! I closed my eye and hit the purchase key, and received an immediate response that he was mine. I remember the day I was to pick him up, wondering "what did I do" I like to sleep in, get up and meditate, have my coffee etc and now my world was about to change!! I cannot tell you how much I love this little guy, he is perfect and by 8pm every night, he is done for the day. I put him in his very comfy crate and he sleeps until I come and get him in the morning! Getting up and going out in the cold is not a big deal to me, he is my buddy, I am so happy with my purchase, and the service that came with him.

Loc: Buffalo, NY

My family was very nervous about ordering a puppy online but were very pleasantly relieved when we arrived at the facility. It was clean and welcoming and the staff took the time to meet with us to explain the puppy care tips we would need. Now that we have had Theo home for 3 weeks none of us can imagine life without him. He is such a happy and loving puppy! Thank you, premier pups.

Cannoli just celebrated his birthday and our family is beyond thankful for this amazing pup! He is the sweetest, cutest dog, and we are so glad that we were able to get him from a great company. Premier pups really cares about their puppies. I would definitely recommend finding a perfect addition to your family here!

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.

Charlie is almost 8 months old, he is an amazing dog, companion and protector (lol) He thinks he is the 'Mayor" of the neighborhood always looking out the front door, barking at anyone walking on the sidewalk, he has always slept thru the night and is a treat snob.....I am very pleased with my purchase, and making him a part of my life.

We purchased Brutus Feb 2019. He is a ball of energy right now, is smart and knows what he wants. He knows how to sit and stay and potty trained quickly. The puppy stage is challenging at times with him but we see glimpses of sweetness in him. The experience at Premier was great and would recommend them to anyone. We love are independent little guy.

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!

Client: Staci Tyree
Loc: Beavercreek, OH

We got Loki ( formerly Sosa) in November 2020. Premier was amazing to work with from the start. They give you so much information from the very beginning which made it an easy transition for both pup and parents. Loki has been a blessing in our family! My boys love how playful he is and he has everyone in the house wrapped around his tiny paw!! I don’t know what I would do without this little mommas boy! Premier was so easy to work with and made sure even after we had Loki home that he was doing well with his new home! Thank you so much for bringing this small bundle of love to our home!
