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.

We had been looking online at a lot of breeders and just happened to come across Premier Pups and we seen this little girl and we instantly fell in love. Everyone at Premier Pups were wonderful and caring and answering all our questions, we live in ND, so we were concerned about the airplane ride in our cold weather. But they made sure to check the forecast every day before they booked the flight. And once she arrived they called and texted to see how she was doing. We've told all our friends and family about Premier Pups and how awesome they are. So from us and Anezka Letang THANK YOU!!!

Hela has been the best dog we've ever had. We looked for over a year before getting her from Premeire Pups. She has the funniest personality and has been so smart and easy to train. Working with Premeire Pups even through covid was super easy and they were there for us if we had any questions at all. In the future i would definitely get my next family member from them.

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!

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!
