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've had Tucker for over a year now (Oct, 2019) and he gets more precious every day. He is SUCH a perfect part of our family. Every step of picking him out and flying him to us here in Florida went so smoothly. He was healthy and adjusted easily to his new life with us. Premier was great to follow up with us multiple times the first few weeks to check in him. Tucker is a GREAT pup and i would 100% buy from Premier again!

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.
