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: Leah
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Christine Dodds
Loc: OH

We found premierpups online. When we found the dogs we wanted to see we made an appointment. When we got there we asked to see the pups and they brought out 3 and we picked Leah. The facility is very clean the owner took us to the main house and we sat and talked. Never was he in a hurry. They sent us home with detailed instructions and meds for her. We got emails asking about her the first day and a call from the owner the next day. I would recommend anyone looking for a puppy to get one here. She is the cutest puppy ever!

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

Name: Archie (formerly Adam)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Ann Samuel
Loc: Renton, WA

I was hesitant about buying a puppy online without getting a chance to see the little one first. And then the thought of a plane journey for a puppy was also scary. However premier pups really went out of the way to ensure us that this was perfectly fine. The response to queries at all times of the day have been prompt. Infact I once sent an email at midnight and heard back In 10 minutes. The customer service top notch. They have been following up everyday on him. It’s been a great experience so far. We have spoken to Denato, Chelsea, Michelle and Jacob FaceTimed is to see Archie the night before he flew home. Very grateful for this level of service. Especially for new owners like us. The extra reassurance Premier pups provides goes a long way. The only thing I would recommend is getting the peepoopalace before the pup arrives so that training is consistent. Right now he is ruling the house and is nothing short of a King.

Name: Lucky(previously Toby)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Jennifer Parungao
Loc: Jupiter, FL

Premier pups has been beyond helpful from our initial researching phase to post purchase once we had Lucky home. Their kind check ins after the pup arrives is truly exceptional. Not only has Premier Pups proactively reached out via phone or text but they have also been very fast and responsive when we called them with questions. It is a huge adjustment for pups this tiny to fly on a plane and come to their new home and the AP team truly makes the experience smooth and happy for puppy and owner alike. We have even had many interactions throughout our experience w/ the CEO of AP who is knowledgable and compassionate like his staff. This sweet little pup is healthy and well adjusted. He fits right in to our family and our 11 and 8 year old just adore him. We all do! Thank you AP for the experience and top notch customer service!

We couldn’t be more happy with our fur baby! He truly is what a healthy puppy should be. Ozzie (formerly known as Neuman) is great with our kids and is loved by everyone.

Client: Michelle Cunningham
Loc: Louisville, KY

We picked up Piper (fka Arielle) on 7/7/2018. She is the sweetest puppy and has become the center of our family. Our experience with Premier Pups was fantastic. The website was easy to navigate and made it easy for me to fall in love with my little puppy. I made an offer and received a text within 20 minutes to discuss it over the phone. I’m a first-time dog owner and Premier Pups made it so easy to arrange the purchase and pick-up. Piper is healthy and happy. I’ve referred friends to this site because I was so pleased with my puppy and the service we received.

Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Barb Carifa
Loc: Grove City, Ohio

I picked my little fur baby (Weema) about a year ago. My entire experience from beginning to end was 100% positive. I’ve been considering adopting another puppy every since I’ve gotten Weema. I can tell you for sure that I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Premier Pups. I would never adopt from any other puppy adoption sites or stores. My Weema is happy, healthy, full of energy and very much spoiled. I love her so much! Thanks for all you do Premier Pups!

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!
