Notes

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.

Breed: Teddy Bear

Loc: Rochester, MA

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!! ??

Premier pups has been beyond helpful from our initial researching phase to post purchase once we had Lucky home. Their kind check ins after the pup arrives is truly exceptional. Not only has Premier Pups proactively reached out via phone or text but they have also been very fast and responsive when we called them with questions. It is a huge adjustment for pups this tiny to fly on a plane and come to their new home and the AP team truly makes the experience smooth and happy for puppy and owner alike. We have even had many interactions throughout our experience w/ the CEO of AP who is knowledgable and compassionate like his staff. This sweet little pup is healthy and well adjusted. He fits right in to our family and our 11 and 8 year old just adore him. We all do! Thank you AP for the experience and top notch customer service!

After years and years of my kids asking for a puppy July 2020 is when I finally gave in! The process of looking for the perfect one and where to get it was very difficult until we came across Premier Pups. We were worried that it would be a scam because that is common amongst lots of sites but Premier pups was reliable and their communication from making the first deposit to the first week of having him was amazing. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a new pup to join their family! Our Pogi is awesome he is an 11th month Bichon Frise/Shitzu who loves playing outside and taking long walks!

We got our Teddy Bear over two years ago from Premier Pups and it has honestly been one of the best decisions we ever made. This company made the process very easy and we were really impressed with the follow up and after care support. Louie has brought so much love and joy to our home that we cannot imagine life without him. We are so excited to be adding a little sister Teddy Bear puppy to our family which we can't wait to bring home from Premier Pups in just a few short weeks.

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.

My family was very nervous about ordering a puppy online but were very pleasantly relieved when we arrived at the facility. It was clean and welcoming and the staff took the time to meet with us to explain the puppy care tips we would need. Now that we have had Theo home for 3 weeks none of us can imagine life without him. He is such a happy and loving puppy! Thank you, premier pups.

We got this little boy on the 2nd of January and he has been a bundle of joy ever since. Clyde goes from being playful to cuddly throughout the day and fits right into the family. He was comfortable since the first day and we couldn’t of asked for a better dog. Smooth transition and very healthy so far. This is our third puppy from premier and we are very pleased once again with how everything turned out.
