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.

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!
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!
Discovered PremierPups (PP) & the Teddy Bear breed. Several conversations offered assurance to me from PP of their knowledge, expertise and care. Shipping my pup to CA and their follow up care was excellent. He had a long flight day. When I reached out with questions and requested assistance someone immediately addressed my pup's needs. Marcus Miller is a vivacious and sweet pup. We're practicing social distancing due to COVID 19 so most family and friends have only met him virtually. Most folks are unfamiliar with Teddy Bears so he is a novelty and show stopper. While Marcus requires a lot of TLC because he is a puppy, now only 4 months old, I find him smart & easily trainable. Commands he's mastered are: Sit, Down & Dance. We're working on Stay, High Five and Roll over. He loves to play fetch ball. Recently completed his vaccinations we now walk to our neighborhood park where he runs to his heart's content. I'm in love with my Teddy Bear. He goes hiking and cycling with me in a backpack. We go everywhere together. He is a good little traveler. Although puppy excitable Marcus has been good with kids and adults. My experience with Premier Pups has been exceptional. I highly recommend Premier Pups. They stand behind their word with customer service truly caring for the health and well being of the puppies. THANK YOU Premier Pups!
We lost our sweet cavalier Elvis in January and I did not think I would be ready for a long time to get another dog. Just doing research I found Premier Pups and the Teddy Bear breed and I was hooked. Never have I ever just picked a pet from a picture and I was very nervous. But her face just spoke to me and we took a chance. Everything went very smoothly, all questions answered right away. The only downside was not being able to get updated photos between 6 and 8 week period, but after it was explained why I reluctantly understood and they sent pics as soon as she got to their facility . Pick up was just as smooth! Lexi is amazing, she did great on the 7 hour car ride home, sleeps through the night, has the best personality, she is so smart, she learned sit and down the first week home! She is everything we never knew we needed and we are in love! She goes everywhere and is so well behaved! I think Elvis would approve for sure!
We were hesitant to buy a puppy online, but after reading the reviews and speaking with several members of the Premier Pups team, we felt assured that we are dealing with people you love and care for their pups. We have had Berit (Declan) for a little over a month now and love him more and more each day. We highly recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a loving puppy.
Harper has being amazing! Healthy puppy and very smart. Would definitely buy again from premierpups. She’s a great addition to my family!
I received my puppies on 1/9/17 I am already in love with them. They are eating the hard food and drinking water after first night. They are both semi potty trained already. They are a joy to watch ( brothers play). Premier pups are great to work with and I have already referred several co-workers to their site. Thank you so much
Premier Pups service has been excellent! Would highly recommend. Zsa Zsa (formerly Bailey) has been an absolute blessing to our family. You can rest assured with Premier Pups that they deal with only the best breeders. Zsa Zsa came to us perfectly healthy and she has such a sweet disposition. The support and care Premier Pups provides is truly exceptional and first class all the way for both you and your fur baby!
Just got Daisy right before Easter and my grandkids found this Easter dress for her with a daisy on the side.(So Cute).W e just love her and she has settled in with us just fine don't know what I would do without her ty Premier pups for such a lovely dog....She is Great
I was very skeptical, and I had major second thoughts...but I was totally wrong! Premier pups were every thing they professed to be and more! Adding a canine family member is not to be taken lightly. First a little history. My daughter and family had very sweet little Shitzu who sadly came from a puppy mill. "Doogie's" time with us was good while it lasted, even tho his health problems, typical of a puppy mill, plagued him most of his life. Never ever again would we make the mistake of getting a pup from a mill! After some deep and exhaustive research online AP/PP looked promising. These folks care deeply about the health and welfare of each puppy they place in a loving home. They are the middlemen between reputable licensed breeders and families looking for a quality puppy. AP/PP does all the vetting of breeders and their facilities so that you don't have to. They will NOT represent any breeder who does not conform to their high standards. Their reputation depends on it! 8,000+ reviews on their website confirm that. Many years of being in business confirm that. Lucky arrived wagging his tail and ready to play....no worse for wear tho he flew from Ohio. You could immediately tell that Lucky had been handled frequently and had been socialized. There is no struggle to take a shower or bath and he loves playing with the kids! There really are no words that can adequately express the quality of this organization. AP/PP are great communicators! No question is too small My daughter and I called several times before Lucky arrived...and I had "Major second thoughts" as his arrival grew closer. Each time, Mike or Matt or Ryan would talk me off the ledge! Their support did not stop after Lucky arrived. They called several times to see how the pup was adjusting, making suggestions and answering more questions. Their "after the sale" protocol is beyond impressive! Lucky's first flight was cancelled so his arrival was delayed by a day. Knowing that we had a couple of very dissappointed kids on this end, and a puppy who was in a crate ready to fly until it was cancelled..Mike took the time to bring the puppy to his family's home..giving Lucky a chance to get some exercise and play with the kids...and sent our kids a video...just to reassure them that all was well!!! Who does that? Ethical people who really care about the puppies they represent. Don't have any doubts..AP/PP are the real deal. And we thank them every time we get to enjoy our new adorable family member! AP/PP have my email and cell # if you need reassurance from a live customer!
