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: Elsie
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Stacie Blackledge
Loc: Detroit, MI

We got Elsie (formally Vivian) in November 2020. We made the drive from Detroit to Premier Pups to pick her up and it was a super easy experience. She is my first small breed dog and they called and checked on us numerous times as well as answered my calls when I had questions. Elsie is the sweetest dog, and loves every member of our family equally. She has been our bright spot during quarantine.

Capri arrived on June 20, 2021. I am over the moon in love with my Teddy Bear baby. I am also thankful and grateful that I got her through Premier Pups. (PP) PP stayed in contact with me every step of way from the moment I purchased my little girl through her adjustment period in her new home. Capri is the sweetest pup with a great disposition. The experts at PP answered all of my questions and they were always available to answer any and all questions I had. I recommend Premier Pups without hesitation.

Name: Peanut Butter
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Kimberly Pinkston
Loc: Brentwood, TN

My daughter had asked for a puppy right around Christmas this year, so I started looking online at different breeds. I wasn't impressed with the selection of local breeders, so I expanded my view & stumbled across Premier Pups. I spent over two hours reviewing & reading the site details before deciding on the Teddy Bear breed. Once decided, I came across Ms. Perfect's picture... I showed it to my daughter, and she instantly feel in love. I was skeptical about the whole purchase process of a puppy online, but Premier Pups made it simple & put me at ease. They answered all my calls & questions regarding our puppy, and we she arrived at the airport, we were excited to meet her in person. Peanut Butter has been the sweetest puppy! She's incredibly healthy & smart. Premier Pups called & emailed a few times after she arrived to make sure the puppy was doing well... it was nice knowing they cared so much. I have recommended Premier Pups to several people and would look to them again if we decided to expand our family any more. We love our new family member & couldn't be more pleased!

I was so scared to purchase a puppy online and get him shipped to me but the staff at PremierPups put all my worries to rest. From the initial purchase to the flight to checking in to make sure he was ok the staff here are amazing. Yoshi is now 10 months old and my best friend. He is incredibly healthy and well tempered you can just tell how well he was taken care of. I can’t see my life without him now, he is my everything. Thank you to everyone at premier pups who helped me.

Name: Maggie (formerly Maddie)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Deborah Tuffo-Yeaw
Loc: Rochester, NY

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!

Name: Milo (formerly Oberon)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Leepi
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

Oberon (now Milo) is the sweetest Teddy Bear puppy we could've ever asked for. After trying for months to adopt a puppy/dog through various rescues with no luck during the pandemic, we stumbled upon Premier Pups thanks to friends who also found their sweet puppy with them. Premier Pups is a super reliable company and take the care to put first time customers, like my family, at ease. I had no idea what to expect flying an 8 week old puppy from Ohio to Los Angeles! But, Premier Pups staff checked in with me at every step of the process! They provided updates on the day Milo was put on his flight, they sent me post-puppy care instructions, sent food and preventative medications, called me and sent texts to make sure all was well and have been available for any questions. I 100% recommend Premier Pups if you're searching for a reputable company that will help you find your puppy. I have recommended 3 other families who all adopted various breeds from Premier Pups too. Milo is a year old now and is part of our family. He is sweet, lovable, healthy and is the neighborhood social butterfly. He is living his best life ever and we are so lucky to have been able to adopt him during this very tough year.
