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: Maci (Formally Gili)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Nick & Cheryl Rencich
Loc: Yorkvill

We picked up Maci (Gili) on 9/5. We love her so much!! We would recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a new fur baby to add to their family. Our local vet said she is a very healthy puppy & has even gained 3 lbs since we picked her up. We entered Maci in a dog show at our church & she won 1st place in the cutest puppy category....??????

Name: Moose
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Andrea Oliver
Loc: PA

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)

Name: Charlie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Denise Amato
Loc: Westerville

Charlie is almost 8 months old, he is an amazing dog, companion and protector (lol) He thinks he is the 'Mayor" of the neighborhood always looking out the front door, barking at anyone walking on the sidewalk, he has always slept thru the night and is a treat snob.....I am very pleased with my purchase, and making him a part of my life.

Name: Mushu aka Mushipoo (purchased as Aiden)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Chelsea Coartney
Loc: Anchorage, Alaska

I just got Mushu 2 days ago. I can tell you I was probably the most impatient customer Premier Pets ever had. I purchased Mushu as a presale pup and he wasnt available for a week after I purchased him, which was totally my fault. The staff at Premier pets went above and beyond and sent me videos and even tried to get him on a Sunday flight to Alaska. I dealt with Margot, Anthony, and Matthew. As soon as Mushu was shipped to me I refreshed his flight status every 5 minutes. I was so anxious for him to arrive. Just like any puppy owner, i was concerned for his health and his temperment. For the first few minutes he was shaking becuase he was scared (and probably cold) but after that, he was running around with our goldendoodle like he owned the place. You can tell Mushu was a happy puppy! Its only day 2 and hes already potty trained. Ive already recommended Premier pups to my friends who are planning to purchase a pup from them this week! Thank you to the Premier pups staff who sent us our new family member! and also a side note for all you people who think Premier pup uses puppy mills, I highly doubt it becase theres no way a puppy like Mushu comes from a puppy mill, he's way to happy and chubby haha. I would assume a puppy from a mill would be scared, shy, and sad looking. which is completely opposite then Mushu. I honestly have no idea how the staff doesnt want to take home all the puppies... Thank You!-Chelsea from Alaska

Name: was Kenny but now Charlie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Lexie
Loc: Maysville, MO

I originally got Charlie so I could have a companion while my boyfriend was away. But as soon as he arrived he soon became much more than a companion, he became my very best friend. He is the sweetest, funniest, and craziest dog I have ever owned and stole my heart immediately upon meeting him. He is so laid back and easy to train. I wouldn’t rather have any other dog.

Client: Sarah Roberts
Loc: San Antonio Texas

We got Charlie during COVID. Great experience. We were excited to get him off the plane. Great support and customer care. Used the emergency hotline once and was given great advice. I would use them again and have referred several families to Premier Pups. He tuned one yesterday! We are in love.

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!
