MARIO IS A SHIH TZU/MALTESE CROSS.
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.
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.
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.

Our Maltipoo 17 years old , crossed the rainbow bridge almost 2 years ago. We weren’t sure if we ever wanted another puppy. We searched all over and came upon Premier Pups. We picked up Maggie Mae , a teddy bear, last night from Roger and we are all getting adjusted to each other. Of course she missed her much mama and siblings but hoping every night gets a little easier for her !
I received my little teddy bear right before Christmas. She is absolutely amazing. The whole process of bringing her from Ohio to NY was great. My family loves having a pup in the house. She adorable and so loving all she wants to do is have someone rub her belly and give her kisses. I was a little worried about getting a pup without seeing her in my hands. But it was the best choice I ever made. Thanks
He is growing up big an so SPOILED HE EVEN HAS A CARSEAT he doesn’t even ride in it lol but he is my baby !
We welcomed Barry, formerly known as Bernard, nearly a year ago in January 2017! Working with staff at Premier Pups went smoothly and were so friendly and helpful from start to finish. They even called to check on Barry on the way home and days after! Barry has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives and we have considered adding a little sister in the upcoming future! He is well-mannered, friendly, loves chasing after sticks and leaves, along with sticking his head out the window during car rides! We love our little guy and can't imagine life without. Big thanks to Premier Pups for Barry!
My wonderful faculty presented me with a check for a puppy when I retired. What wonderful colleagues and friends ! I had been searching several sites and watching for the 'perfect pup' to adopt. When Covid hit, I knew it was time to decide. I chose Premier Pups for their location (about 2 hours from our home) and based on the wonderful reviews of past customers. I was not disappointed. Gracie has been the ray of sunshine during the pandemic. My granddaughter is being taught remotely - which is stressful and isolating. Having a gentle pup to snuggle has been wonderful for her. The process was easy. The staff we worked with were patient, accommodating and so very kind. (And yes - she did become a huge Steelers fan !) Thank you, Premier Pups !! We love our Gracie!
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!!!!
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....??????
After searching and searching for a puppy we found our little teddy bear! Lola (formerly Bianca) is just a happy puppy! She adjusted so well to our home and our family. She loves playing outside and also loves to paint! She quickly found a special place in our hearts and on our couch! She loves taking long naps on there! We are so happy we found Premier Pups and are extremely happy with our little LolaBear Premier Pups made the process so easy, always answered all of my questions (of course we were hesitant because it was all done online from across the country!) Im am so glad they were very attentive and checked up on her even after she was home to make sure she was safe, healthy and happy! 10/10 recommended to anyone searching for a new Love Pup!!!
We were looking for a small puppy, and came across premierpups.com. I was worried that it could be a scam, but as I read the reviews from other buyers and watched all the videos posted on the site showing how the pups are cared for and delivered, I took my chances. I went through the ordering process and Shiloh was flown to us in less than a week. We picked him up at the airport cargo area and he came with all the paperwork and everything needed to take care of a 6 week old puppy. We have had Shiloh since June of 2019, and he is spoiled and loved so much. I would recommend premier pups to anyone looking for a puppy. The service we received was amazing and beyond our expectation.
This has been the best experience. I could not have asked for a more healthier puppy. Nikko even came pre-loaded with fetch and can wink! The customer service was exceptional. They've checked in on me more times since Nikko has arrived then my family has. The vet said their health protocol was overly protective, but really appreciated the precautions they took. Thank you so so much for everything. You made my life so much happier!
