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.

This is my daughter Alison and our new puppy Oscar (Aiden born 4/10/17). After the loss of our first dog Kosmo (Yorkshire terrier) who died in February I didn't think she would ever be able to love another puppy that much. Well I was wrong! Oscar has fit right into our lives as though he has been here forever. Thank you for the opportunity to adopt/purchase Oscar! We just love him!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Andrea Oliver

We got Moose (previously known as Abbott) from a friend who actually got him from Premier Pups. Moose is such a good boy, he is very sweet and adorable. He is also a healthy dog, we are really pleased with his health conditions. That’s one of the reasons we got another puppy from Premier Pups (which I will post a review soon as well)

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Mona Krifca
Loc: Staten Island NY

I received my little teddy bear right before Christmas. She is absolutely amazing. The whole process of bringing her from Ohio to NY was great. My family loves having a pup in the house. She adorable and so loving all she wants to do is have someone rub her belly and give her kisses. I was a little worried about getting a pup without seeing her in my hands. But it was the best choice I ever made. Thanks

Name: Maggie (formerly Maddie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Tuffo-Yeaw
Loc: Rochester, NY

I purchased Maggie in March of 2020 from Premier Pups. I can't say enough about their customer service. I called them so many times asking questions and they were always patient and helpful and they really seemed to know everything about Maggie as if she was the only dog there. I decided to put a deposit on Maggie and an employee there said that he would meet me half way the following Saturday to deliver her to me so I didn't have to drive the entire 6 hours. To make a long story short I wound up in the hospital and was intubated for days. My family and friends didn't want me to wake up and not have my puppy so they contacted Premier and they went above and beyond for my friends and met half way them instead of me. They gave them all the meds, foods and instructions that I could possible need to take care of her when I got home. Maggie has been nothing but a joy since I've gotten her. She loves people and dogs and she is so sweet, lovable, playful and adorable! I mean look at those eyes! She was a great decision and Premier pets made it happen! Love them!
