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: California

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.

Hewy just celebrated his 1st Birthday! We had an amazing experience with Premier Pups. The adoption process was seamless and his flight was uneventful. They were fantastic in keeping us up to date on his arrival and called us to check in on him once he got home. He is the apple of our eye and we couldn’t imagine life without him! Hewy is the second puppy we have adopted from Premier Pups!

Loc: Saint Charles, Mo

My Lucy will be one year old this week. She has added so much happiness to my life. I drove to Premier Pups from St. Charles, Missouri and picked her up on my birthday. We bonded the whole way back and she has settled in great. I take her once or twice a week to Doggie Daycare where she is their favorite puppy. She has made several doggie friends also. Some that are her same breed and looks like her. Premier Pups did exactly what they said they would do during my entire purchase. They sent me updated photos while she was growing til the time I got to get her. They also called for several weeks to check on her. I would highly recommend this dog breeder for your next little one.

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!!!!

Name: Jilly Bean
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Jenna
Loc: Ithaca, NY

Our family owns a Premier Pups teddy bear who we adore, so we felt comfortable working with Premier Pups when we were ready for our first pet. Jilly Bean (formerly “Mya”) has made our house a home! We had her potty trained in less than a week with no accidents since. She is so sweet, makes us laugh, and loves to play, cuddle, and go for walks. She’s about 12 lbs. and we always receive compliments regarding how soft her fur is. She loves being around people, other dogs, and children. We couldn’t love her more! We highly recommend Premier Pups, as we would certainly be returning customers if/when we decide to get Jilly a puppy sibling. :)

Loc: Jupiter, FL

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!

Name: Nazra (formerly Raquel)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Devin Hinzo
Loc: Cleveland Heights, OH

Our experience with Premier Pups was pretty fantastic. Nazra is a healthy, energetic, adorable Shih-Poo puppy and we are thankful that PP made her a part of our family! If you are buying a pup and are considering using PP, do it. They offer an amazing level of service. They are not sketchy and are honest and approachable. The instructions for giving medication overwhelmed me a bit, but they talked to me several times on the phone to walk me through the process. She was a hit at the Vet's office, and the doc commented on how healthy she was. Although I want our next dog to be a rescue, PP does such an amazing job with their pups and level of service I'm tempted to get another puppy through them! Thank you to PP, and to the breeder of this Shih-Poo. We are so happy to have her in our lives.
