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: Archie (formerly Adam)
Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Renton, WA

I was hesitant about buying a puppy online without getting a chance to see the little one first. And then the thought of a plane journey for a puppy was also scary. However premier pups really went out of the way to ensure us that this was perfectly fine. The response to queries at all times of the day have been prompt. Infact I once sent an email at midnight and heard back In 10 minutes. The customer service top notch. They have been following up everyday on him. It’s been a great experience so far. We have spoken to Denato, Chelsea, Michelle and Jacob FaceTimed is to see Archie the night before he flew home. Very grateful for this level of service. Especially for new owners like us. The extra reassurance Premier pups provides goes a long way. The only thing I would recommend is getting the peepoopalace before the pup arrives so that training is consistent. Right now he is ruling the house and is nothing short of a King.

We are so in love with our Teddy Bear dog. He is super smart, sweet, and loving. We named him Alexander, after Axelander Hamilton. It's a big name for a small dog, but he lives up to it. Alexander is now seven months old. He was super easy to house train.

I searched everywhere for my ideal puppy and somewhere I felt comfortable enough to make such an important purchase and finally I found Premier Pups. I knew the second a saw Edison that he was the perfect dog and without hesitation decided to buy him. The process was extremely efficient and smooth! Edison is my hiking, swimming, golfing, and napping buddy and he truly could not be more perfect. Forever grateful to Premier Pups for giving my my very best friend!

Client: Lexie
Loc: Maysville, MO

I originally got Charlie so I could have a companion while my boyfriend was away. But as soon as he arrived he soon became much more than a companion, he became my very best friend. He is the sweetest, funniest, and craziest dog I have ever owned and stole my heart immediately upon meeting him. He is so laid back and easy to train. I wouldn’t rather have any other dog.

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.
