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.

I have always wanted a small puppy that looked like a teddy bear. I saw this cute little puppy on Premier Pups website and finally took the plunge. The moment we picked him up at the airport we were in love. He has been the greatest addition to our family. He loves playing with our other dogs. They're all much bigger. We have a mastiff/pitbull, pitbull and a very very old cockerspaniel. Bernard loves to play with them. He's the littlest dog in the family with the biggest personality. I would recommend Premier Pup to anyone. Bernard was healthy when we picked him up at the airport. We followed the instructions giving, brought him to the vet the day after we picked him up. He was perfect and has been since. They truly care and want the best for their pups. They called daily to check on him the first couple of weeks. I'll admit that we weren't very responsive because of work and things but it was nice to know they cared so much. We got this adorable pup at 8 weeks, he is now almost 6 months old. We could not love him more. His personality is the best. He's loving, playful and yet independent. He is definitely hyper at times and snuggly other times. He has the cutest face and the best personality. He is protective of those he loves, human or animal. I could not be happier with the quality and service of Premier Pup. I would and have recommended Premier Pups to family and friends. Thank you Premier Pups!! ??
My Lucy will be one year old this week. She has added so much happiness to my life. I drove to Premier Pups from St. Charles, Missouri and picked her up on my birthday. We bonded the whole way back and she has settled in great. I take her once or twice a week to Doggie Daycare where she is their favorite puppy. She has made several doggie friends also. Some that are her same breed and looks like her. Premier Pups did exactly what they said they would do during my entire purchase. They sent me updated photos while she was growing til the time I got to get her. They also called for several weeks to check on her. I would highly recommend this dog breeder for your next little one.
This is our little Jax. We got him from Premier Pets in January 2020. Buying online was a very scary experience, but once we got our sweet Jax (Echo) all worries were gone. Premier Pets was awesome. From the minute we picked him up we knew we had made the right decision. They were in constant contact with us for the first week, anytime I had a question I would contact them and had a quick reply. I am seriously thinking about getting another dog from them. We love our little man.
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!
I received my puppies on 1/9/17 I am already in love with them. They are eating the hard food and drinking water after first night. They are both semi potty trained already. They are a joy to watch ( brothers play). Premier pups are great to work with and I have already referred several co-workers to their site. Thank you so much
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 just love our Coco ???? We picked her up 6 weeks ago and cannot be any happier. The team at Premier Pups were professional and insured we were educated on what we needed to do to get her home and the first week at her new home. Although we had no issues, they followed up to make sure all was going well. Thank You Premier Pups!!!!
We picked up Piper (fka Arielle) on 7/7/2018. She is the sweetest puppy and has become the center of our family. Our experience with Premier Pups was fantastic. The website was easy to navigate and made it easy for me to fall in love with my little puppy. I made an offer and received a text within 20 minutes to discuss it over the phone. I’m a first-time dog owner and Premier Pups made it so easy to arrange the purchase and pick-up. Piper is healthy and happy. I’ve referred friends to this site because I was so pleased with my puppy and the service we received.
We had been looking online at a lot of breeders and just happened to come across Premier Pups and we seen this little girl and we instantly fell in love. Everyone at Premier Pups were wonderful and caring and answering all our questions, we live in ND, so we were concerned about the airplane ride in our cold weather. But they made sure to check the forecast every day before they booked the flight. And once she arrived they called and texted to see how she was doing. We've told all our friends and family about Premier Pups and how awesome they are. So from us and Anezka Letang THANK YOU!!!
