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.

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.
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!
Charlie is almost 8 months old, he is an amazing dog, companion and protector (lol) He thinks he is the 'Mayor" of the neighborhood always looking out the front door, barking at anyone walking on the sidewalk, he has always slept thru the night and is a treat snob.....I am very pleased with my purchase, and making him a part of my life.
Nothing but great things to say about premier pups. Their facility was nice & clean. The staff was very professional & helpful with everything about our new fur baby. Our Griz is a healthy, affectionate, & spunky little pup. Every day he makes us laugh & smile. My family & I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve been wanting one of these teddy bear dogs for 3 years now & my only regret is not getting one sooner. If I ever purchase again premier pups will be my first choice!
I was looking for a Christmas present (for myself) when saw Cici! They had a puppy that shared my name LOL! I had to have her! She is the sweetest little thing. Extremely adaptable and LOVES her big brother Wicket (shih tzu/Maltese mix) and all 5 of my kids! She is extremely healthy and all the accessories sent with her are great. Can't wait until we "need" another puppy!
We couldn’t be happier with our sweet Winnie Bear! She is now a year old and just the best pup. Our experience with Premier Pups was excellent. So grateful to have Winnie in our family!
I got Abby on Monday, March 12th and she has already brought so much joy to me. Premier Pups is so awesome to work with. The whole process was seamless and they even call and check up on her. I recommend them to anyone wanting a special puppy.
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!
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!
I starting looking high and low for the perfect pup for our family when I came across premier pups. That’s where I found Emme (previously Julie) I can’t not give this place enough thumbs up!??. From the initial phone call to the follow up calls they were helpful and professional. Esme is the sweetest pup and has been such a blessing to our family already. And at 11 weeks she’s almost totally potty trained and is quickly learning commands. I will defiantly come back to premier pups for future puppies! 5 stars all the way! ?? ????????
