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.

This is our little Jax. We got him from Premier Pets in January 2020. Buying online was a very scary experience, but once we got our sweet Jax (Echo) all worries were gone. Premier Pets was awesome. From the minute we picked him up we knew we had made the right decision. They were in constant contact with us for the first week, anytime I had a question I would contact them and had a quick reply. I am seriously thinking about getting another dog from them. We love our little man.

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.

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!

We got Charlie during COVID. Great experience. We were excited to get him off the plane. Great support and customer care. Used the emergency hotline once and was given great advice. I would use them again and have referred several families to Premier Pups. He tuned one yesterday! We are in love.

Name: Rosie (was tonya)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Carolyn calhoun
Loc: Dunlap, IL

I was very sceptical buying a puppy off the internet and having them ship her by plane to us, but premier pups made the whole experience comfortable and exciting. When we got our little Rosie she fit into our crazy family perfectly. She is the most loving and energetic little puppy. We ended up buying the puppy palace and the playpen, but we only put her in there when no one is home, which isn’t very often. She is already so spoiled and we all enjoy her little personality so much. We will definitely buy from premier pups again.
