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

Name: Delilah
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Lynette
Loc: Dallas, TX

We purchased our little Delilah (formerly “Gili”) the day her pic was posted! I was extremely hesitant about purchasing a puppy online! Especially 3.5 weeks before she was actually available! I did a lot of research on Teddy Bear breeds prior to the purchase, and I asked a lot of questions! For instance, I asked what specific breeds were mixed, and I requested pictures of the parents. Our Teddy Bear pup is a Maltese/Shih tzu mix (Malshi). In my opinion, I would expect more information to be automatically given from Premier Pups... especially since a “Teddy Bear” breed is a vague category that includes many mixes... and especially for the price. I asked for an updated video or picture before she was flown out. I was extremely happy to get an adorable video! We ran into a few glitches with her microchip number, and I never received an initial email after purchasing her, only an automatic receipt. The issues were resolved quickly and politely! The employees I spoke to throughout the process were very kind and helpful! I really liked that I could text a question also. Her flight went smoothly, and we immediately fell in love with her! Premier Pups called 2-3 times after we received her to check in! She is now 13 weeks old, has been to the vet twice for check ups, and she is a healthy, happy, growing little puppy! We love our little Malshi! Overall, we’d do it all again to get Delilah! She’s pure joy! My advice to anyone making a puppy purchase is to be proactive in gathering as much information as you can, set up a vet appointment as Premier Pups recommends, evaluate the preventive meds and the needs of your specific pup, and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions! Thank you Premier Pups!

It took months of begging my husband to let me get a teddy bear pup and one day he said "let's do it". We found "Tina" on line, drove 4 hours that Saturday and we chose 3 pups to view but the minute they brought her out we knew she was the one. It took seconds for her to hook my husband. Premier pups were friendly, helpful, and clean. We will definitely use them in the future.

Loc: Dublin, Ohio

We purchased Brutus Feb 2019. He is a ball of energy right now, is smart and knows what he wants. He knows how to sit and stay and potty trained quickly. The puppy stage is challenging at times with him but we see glimpses of sweetness in him. The experience at Premier was great and would recommend them to anyone. We love are independent little guy.

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.

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!!!
