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: Weema (aka. Selena)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Barb Carifa
Loc: Grove City, Ohio

I picked my little fur baby (Weema) about a year ago. My entire experience from beginning to end was 100% positive. I’ve been considering adopting another puppy every since I’ve gotten Weema. I can tell you for sure that I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Premier Pups. I would never adopt from any other puppy adoption sites or stores. My Weema is happy, healthy, full of energy and very much spoiled. I love her so much! Thanks for all you do Premier Pups!

I was looking for a Christmas present (for myself) when saw Cici! They had a puppy that shared my name LOL! I had to have her! She is the sweetest little thing. Extremely adaptable and LOVES her big brother Wicket (shih tzu/Maltese mix) and all 5 of my kids! She is extremely healthy and all the accessories sent with her are great. Can't wait until we "need" another puppy!

Name: Marcus Miller (formely Marty)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Rita Corbinook
Loc: Bay Point, California

Discovered PremierPups (PP) & the Teddy Bear breed. Several conversations offered assurance to me from PP of their knowledge, expertise and care. Shipping my pup to CA and their follow up care was excellent. He had a long flight day. When I reached out with questions and requested assistance someone immediately addressed my pup's needs. Marcus Miller is a vivacious and sweet pup. We're practicing social distancing due to COVID 19 so most family and friends have only met him virtually. Most folks are unfamiliar with Teddy Bears so he is a novelty and show stopper. While Marcus requires a lot of TLC because he is a puppy, now only 4 months old, I find him smart & easily trainable. Commands he's mastered are: Sit, Down & Dance. We're working on Stay, High Five and Roll over. He loves to play fetch ball. Recently completed his vaccinations we now walk to our neighborhood park where he runs to his heart's content. I'm in love with my Teddy Bear. He goes hiking and cycling with me in a backpack. We go everywhere together. He is a good little traveler. Although puppy excitable Marcus has been good with kids and adults. My experience with Premier Pups has been exceptional. I highly recommend Premier Pups. They stand behind their word with customer service truly caring for the health and well being of the puppies. THANK YOU Premier Pups!

Scarlett has been has an awesome addition to our family! It had been quite a while since we had a dog but working with the professionals at Premier and follow up calls put my mind at ease! I have already shared your site with others!!

Name: Nikko
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Nick
Loc: Tampa, FL

This has been the best experience. I could not have asked for a more healthier puppy. Nikko even came pre-loaded with fetch and can wink! The customer service was exceptional. They've checked in on me more times since Nikko has arrived then my family has. The vet said their health protocol was overly protective, but really appreciated the precautions they took. Thank you so so much for everything. You made my life so much happier!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Staci Tyree
Loc: Beavercreek, OH

We got Loki ( formerly Sosa) in November 2020. Premier was amazing to work with from the start. They give you so much information from the very beginning which made it an easy transition for both pup and parents. Loki has been a blessing in our family! My boys love how playful he is and he has everyone in the house wrapped around his tiny paw!! I don’t know what I would do without this little mommas boy! Premier was so easy to work with and made sure even after we had Loki home that he was doing well with his new home! Thank you so much for bringing this small bundle of love to our home!
