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 could not be happier that we got our girl here! They sent us with detailed care instructions and even checked in regularly to see how she was doing. We are so in love with her and I can’t imagine going anywhere else if we should decide to get another!
Nothing but great things to say about premier pups. Their facility was nice & clean. The staff was very professional & helpful with everything about our new fur baby. Our Griz is a healthy, affectionate, & spunky little pup. Every day he makes us laugh & smile. My family & I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve been wanting one of these teddy bear dogs for 3 years now & my only regret is not getting one sooner. If I ever purchase again premier pups will be my first choice!
We are in love with this baby and very happy with primer pups and how everything from purchasing to getting her home was handled! She is perfect and so full of spunk! So loving and affectionate and has settled right into her new home! Thank you primier pups!!!!? They follow up on their puppy's and make sure you have everything you need to a good start! And always are there with any questions you have!
Premier Pups is amazing! I was very hesitant to This whole thing,but a friend highly recommended premier pups and you guys by far exceeded my expectations! Thanks for always being there to answer my questions, the amazing smooth transition and for checking in! Layla (Serenity) completes our family and we couldn't be happier.
Bentley is the perfect pet. Very loyal and loving. We have not had a dog in our family in over 30 years so it was a big adjustment for us. Premier Pups has been absolutely fantastic. I have called several times before purchasing the pup and after. They are wonderful. I would highly recommend them. Their pups are top of the line.
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.
We purchased our little Delilah (formerly “Gili”) the day her pic was posted! I was extremely hesitant about purchasing a puppy online! Especially 3.5 weeks before she was actually available! I did a lot of research on Teddy Bear breeds prior to the purchase, and I asked a lot of questions! For instance, I asked what specific breeds were mixed, and I requested pictures of the parents. Our Teddy Bear pup is a Maltese/Shih tzu mix (Malshi). In my opinion, I would expect more information to be automatically given from Premier Pups... especially since a “Teddy Bear” breed is a vague category that includes many mixes... and especially for the price. I asked for an updated video or picture before she was flown out. I was extremely happy to get an adorable video! We ran into a few glitches with her microchip number, and I never received an initial email after purchasing her, only an automatic receipt. The issues were resolved quickly and politely! The employees I spoke to throughout the process were very kind and helpful! I really liked that I could text a question also. Her flight went smoothly, and we immediately fell in love with her! Premier Pups called 2-3 times after we received her to check in! She is now 13 weeks old, has been to the vet twice for check ups, and she is a healthy, happy, growing little puppy! We love our little Malshi! Overall, we’d do it all again to get Delilah! She’s pure joy! My advice to anyone making a puppy purchase is to be proactive in gathering as much information as you can, set up a vet appointment as Premier Pups recommends, evaluate the preventive meds and the needs of your specific pup, and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions! Thank you Premier Pups!
Puppy is happy and healthy it’s only been 3 days but don’t have a complaint yet. He is very playful, social and smart. Staff does check up on puppy and respond to questions ??
We brought our baby girl home 2 weeks ago. She is such a sweet girl. Very lovable and a great addition to our family. Thank you Premier Pups!
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!!!!
