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.

TEDDY BEAR


Date: 5/2/2021
Name: Cannoli (formerly known as Abbott)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Elizabeth Capobianco
Loc: Connecticut

Cannoli just celebrated his birthday and our family is beyond thankful for this amazing pup! He is the sweetest, cutest dog, and we are so glad that we were able to get him from a great company. Premier pups really cares about their puppies. I would definitely recommend finding a perfect addition to your family here!

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!

Name: Phoebe (purchased as Adele)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: The Buchanan Family
Loc: New Albany, Ohio

Phoebe "Adele" is the best little dog and we can't imagine our family without her. She is loving, affectionate, gentle, playful, and so good with kids. Our experience with Premier Pups was excellent from beginning to end, and we greatly appreciated all of the follow-up calls to see how she was doing. Thank you for giving us the best family dog!

Name: Misty (Deb)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Phil and Maria Oehler
Loc: Grass Valley, CA

From the moment Misty arrived at Sacramento Airport and attendant exclaimed she was the cutest puppy he had ever seen, we have never stopped feeling so blessed. My son Des who accompanied me was still trying to get her out of her crate, and she was managing to kiss him. Most of our large family has met her, played with her and fallen in love with Misty. Premier Pets, we can't thank you enough for this bundle of love and energy.

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

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Ronda
Loc: Dougas, Ak

I had a wonderful experience with Premier Pups. I would recommend them to anyone. We have had Banji for going 2 1/2 years and he has been an amazing dog/ best friend. He has been there for me through the passing of our other fur baby. ?? Banji has been so fun and enjoyable. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. We hope to purchase a new friend for Banji very soon... thank you Premier Pups for a job well done!!!!!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Kim Salazar
Loc: Pembina nd

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!!!

I am so happy I got my Teddy Bear Pup from Premier Pups. I absolutely love her, I drove 6.5 hours to pick her up and it was well worth it. Azorah is the name I chose but Kelly was what they named her. She is playful and so adorable. I definitely will recommend them to all my friends and family. I even posted them on my social media sights. Thanks Premier Pups!
