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: Charlie Blue
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leemor
Loc: New York, NY

I was so skeptical to buy a puppy online without even meeting him before the purchase. I researched the breeder and spoke to Premier Puppies over the phone. I also researched the breed to see if it would be a good fit for my lifestyle. After speaking with them over the phone and asking a lot of questions, I felt more comfortable with the purchase and decided to go through with it. I have had Charlie Blue for almost 4 months and I couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest, smartest, adaptable little thing, with great energy, and I get a lot of compliments all the time! Couldn't be happier with my purchase and couldn't imagine life now without him.

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.

I had a wonderful experience with Premier Pups. I would recommend them to anyone. We have had Banji for going 2 1/2 years and he has been an amazing dog/ best friend. He has been there for me through the passing of our other fur baby. ?? Banji has been so fun and enjoyable. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. We hope to purchase a new friend for Banji very soon... thank you Premier Pups for a job well done!!!!!

We got this little boy on the 2nd of January and he has been a bundle of joy ever since. Clyde goes from being playful to cuddly throughout the day and fits right into the family. He was comfortable since the first day and we couldn’t of asked for a better dog. Smooth transition and very healthy so far. This is our third puppy from premier and we are very pleased once again with how everything turned out.
