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.

Client: Melissa & Brian O'Rourke
Loc: Columbus, Ohio

Our little Maisie is the best puppy ever! She is full of energy, extremely well behaved and we swear she is already potty trained at 10 weeks! She has enjoyed having a big sister in the house - they are quickly becoming besties! Follow her on Instagram to see all her puppy adventures (ms_maisie_bear). She is having a blast in her new home! The team at Premier Pups was amazing to work with from the start. Not only did they spend hours with us answering questions about the different breeds we were considering, they continue to follow up with us to ensure Maisie has adjusted and is doing well. She was obviously in good hands at Premier Pups and it shows in her demeanor and behavior now that we have her home. We couldn't love her more ?? and can't say enough about Premier Pups!

Name: Lexi (Formerly Tonya)
Breed: Teddy Bear
Client: Brenda & Michael Perales
Loc: Leesburg, Virginia

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!

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!

Pandora is an amazing addition to our family. She is so loving and great with the kids. She wakes me up every morning by nibbling on my nose when she needs to go potty. I would recommend a Teddy Bear breed to anyone looking for a smaller dog. Thank you Premier Pups!

We are just coming up on the 1yr mark for acquiring our fur baby and can’t say enough praise to Premier Pups for adding him to our life. I routinely recommend Premier Pups. Keep in mind, these pups are very small when acquiring (roughly just over 2lbs). They must be fed from a syringe to supplement also the puppy food for the first few weeks. Was kinda daunting at first, but Premier Pups supplied all the necessary ingredients along with the medicines. Also provided the documentation and schedule. I wish my children were delivered with as much of an instruction manual.
