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: Milo (formerly Oberon)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leepi
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

Oberon (now Milo) is the sweetest Teddy Bear puppy we could've ever asked for. After trying for months to adopt a puppy/dog through various rescues with no luck during the pandemic, we stumbled upon Premier Pups thanks to friends who also found their sweet puppy with them. Premier Pups is a super reliable company and take the care to put first time customers, like my family, at ease. I had no idea what to expect flying an 8 week old puppy from Ohio to Los Angeles! But, Premier Pups staff checked in with me at every step of the process! They provided updates on the day Milo was put on his flight, they sent me post-puppy care instructions, sent food and preventative medications, called me and sent texts to make sure all was well and have been available for any questions. I 100% recommend Premier Pups if you're searching for a reputable company that will help you find your puppy. I have recommended 3 other families who all adopted various breeds from Premier Pups too. Milo is a year old now and is part of our family. He is sweet, lovable, healthy and is the neighborhood social butterfly. He is living his best life ever and we are so lucky to have been able to adopt him during this very tough year.

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!!!

Name: Jilly Bean
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Jenna
Loc: Ithaca, NY

Our family owns a Premier Pups teddy bear who we adore, so we felt comfortable working with Premier Pups when we were ready for our first pet. Jilly Bean (formerly “Mya”) has made our house a home! We had her potty trained in less than a week with no accidents since. She is so sweet, makes us laugh, and loves to play, cuddle, and go for walks. She’s about 12 lbs. and we always receive compliments regarding how soft her fur is. She loves being around people, other dogs, and children. We couldn’t love her more! We highly recommend Premier Pups, as we would certainly be returning customers if/when we decide to get Jilly a puppy sibling. :)

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 !

Name: Maggie (formerly Maddie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Tuffo-Yeaw
Loc: Rochester, NY

I purchased Maggie in March of 2020 from Premier Pups. I can't say enough about their customer service. I called them so many times asking questions and they were always patient and helpful and they really seemed to know everything about Maggie as if she was the only dog there. I decided to put a deposit on Maggie and an employee there said that he would meet me half way the following Saturday to deliver her to me so I didn't have to drive the entire 6 hours. To make a long story short I wound up in the hospital and was intubated for days. My family and friends didn't want me to wake up and not have my puppy so they contacted Premier and they went above and beyond for my friends and met half way them instead of me. They gave them all the meds, foods and instructions that I could possible need to take care of her when I got home. Maggie has been nothing but a joy since I've gotten her. She loves people and dogs and she is so sweet, lovable, playful and adorable! I mean look at those eyes! She was a great decision and Premier pets made it happen! Love them!

We received our beautiful puppy , in June 2020. She’s been a delightful and wonderful pup! Even though she is small she was easily potty trained ! Premier pups was absolutely wonderful, they answered all my questions ( which were many!) , always politely. Their care and attention to both me and Winnie was terrific. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Judy Robinson
Loc: Saint Charles, Mo

My Lucy will be one year old this week. She has added so much happiness to my life. I drove to Premier Pups from St. Charles, Missouri and picked her up on my birthday. We bonded the whole way back and she has settled in great. I take her once or twice a week to Doggie Daycare where she is their favorite puppy. She has made several doggie friends also. Some that are her same breed and looks like her. Premier Pups did exactly what they said they would do during my entire purchase. They sent me updated photos while she was growing til the time I got to get her. They also called for several weeks to check on her. I would highly recommend this dog breeder for your next little one.
