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.

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

My daughter had asked for a puppy right around Christmas this year, so I started looking online at different breeds. I wasn't impressed with the selection of local breeders, so I expanded my view & stumbled across Premier Pups. I spent over two hours reviewing & reading the site details before deciding on the Teddy Bear breed. Once decided, I came across Ms. Perfect's picture... I showed it to my daughter, and she instantly feel in love. I was skeptical about the whole purchase process of a puppy online, but Premier Pups made it simple & put me at ease. They answered all my calls & questions regarding our puppy, and we she arrived at the airport, we were excited to meet her in person. Peanut Butter has been the sweetest puppy! She's incredibly healthy & smart. Premier Pups called & emailed a few times after she arrived to make sure the puppy was doing well... it was nice knowing they cared so much. I have recommended Premier Pups to several people and would look to them again if we decided to expand our family any more. We love our new family member & couldn't be more pleased!

We got Elsie (formally Vivian) in November 2020. We made the drive from Detroit to Premier Pups to pick her up and it was a super easy experience. She is my first small breed dog and they called and checked on us numerous times as well as answered my calls when I had questions. Elsie is the sweetest dog, and loves every member of our family equally. She has been our bright spot during quarantine.

Name: Marcus Miller (formely Marty)
Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Bay Point, California

Discovered PremierPups (PP) & the Teddy Bear breed. Several conversations offered assurance to me from PP of their knowledge, expertise and care. Shipping my pup to CA and their follow up care was excellent. He had a long flight day. When I reached out with questions and requested assistance someone immediately addressed my pup's needs. Marcus Miller is a vivacious and sweet pup. We're practicing social distancing due to COVID 19 so most family and friends have only met him virtually. Most folks are unfamiliar with Teddy Bears so he is a novelty and show stopper. While Marcus requires a lot of TLC because he is a puppy, now only 4 months old, I find him smart & easily trainable. Commands he's mastered are: Sit, Down & Dance. We're working on Stay, High Five and Roll over. He loves to play fetch ball. Recently completed his vaccinations we now walk to our neighborhood park where he runs to his heart's content. I'm in love with my Teddy Bear. He goes hiking and cycling with me in a backpack. We go everywhere together. He is a good little traveler. Although puppy excitable Marcus has been good with kids and adults. My experience with Premier Pups has been exceptional. I highly recommend Premier Pups. They stand behind their word with customer service truly caring for the health and well being of the puppies. THANK YOU Premier Pups!

My wonderful faculty presented me with a check for a puppy when I retired. What wonderful colleagues and friends ! I had been searching several sites and watching for the 'perfect pup' to adopt. When Covid hit, I knew it was time to decide. I chose Premier Pups for their location (about 2 hours from our home) and based on the wonderful reviews of past customers. I was not disappointed. Gracie has been the ray of sunshine during the pandemic. My granddaughter is being taught remotely - which is stressful and isolating. Having a gentle pup to snuggle has been wonderful for her. The process was easy. The staff we worked with were patient, accommodating and so very kind. (And yes - she did become a huge Steelers fan !) Thank you, Premier Pups !! We love our Gracie!

We began looking for our new pups after our 14 year old Pomeranian brothers passed several years ago, from the moment we did the research to finally picking them up yesterday the entire staff and process was incredible. Follow up call today to check on them with more care and concern on how they were adapting and if we had any questions. Took them to our Vet today (same one who cared for our poms) and she said the checkup was great with no concerns and they were well cared for during the 8 weeks with no concerns or issues. If you are planning to purchase Pups this is definitely the place. I will continue to refer any of my friends and family.
