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: Maddie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Della Spencer
Loc: Princeton, WV

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! ??

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Shirley Conley
Loc: Dublin, Ohio

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.

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.

Name: Cannoli (formerly known as Abbott)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Elizabeth Capobianco
Loc: Connecticut

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!

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!!!
