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.

We have had Prim now for a month and we have completely fallen in love with her. Never thought I could love a puppy so much! She has been such a wonderful first pet and she has no issues at all. I loved the whole process with premier. It was quick and super easy. They were very friendly and informative! I would definitely recommend them and I will definitely purchase another pup with them!

Phoebe "Adele" is the best little dog and we can't imagine our family without her. She is loving, affectionate, gentle, playful, and so good with kids. Our experience with Premier Pups was excellent from beginning to end, and we greatly appreciated all of the follow-up calls to see how she was doing. Thank you for giving us the best family dog!

Client: Jerry Roach
Loc: Pearisburg Va

Hello: I usually don't do reviews but we are really happy with tucker. Over the last year we lost our three Poodles of 16 plus years. We were really missing them and came across Premier Pups. My wife and I were very apprehensive about buying a dog online without seeing them other than a picture. I have to say Tucker is a very loving intelligent dog and we are so happy that we bought him From Premier Pups. I was very impressed that they called several times to make sure he was doing OK and to see if we had any questions or concerns. I would not hesitate recommending this company to anyone that is looking for a puppy. Thank you For the great addition to our family.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Powell
Loc: California

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.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Jennifer Parungao
Loc: Jupiter, FL

Premier pups has been beyond helpful from our initial researching phase to post purchase once we had Lucky home. Their kind check ins after the pup arrives is truly exceptional. Not only has Premier Pups proactively reached out via phone or text but they have also been very fast and responsive when we called them with questions. It is a huge adjustment for pups this tiny to fly on a plane and come to their new home and the AP team truly makes the experience smooth and happy for puppy and owner alike. We have even had many interactions throughout our experience w/ the CEO of AP who is knowledgable and compassionate like his staff. This sweet little pup is healthy and well adjusted. He fits right in to our family and our 11 and 8 year old just adore him. We all do! Thank you AP for the experience and top notch customer service!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Melissa
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.

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.
