Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear is a designer dog breed, resulting from a cross between the Shih Tzu with a Maltese or Bichon.

These dogs are small, typically weighing between 6-14 pounds and standing 9-12 inches tall.

Known for their affectionate and friendly nature, Teddy Bears make great companions for families and seniors.

They have hypoallergenic coats that require regular grooming to prevent matting and keep them clean.

Teddy Bear dogs are intelligent and trainable, but early socialization and consistent training are essential.

These dogs are adaptable to various living situations, including apartments and homes with yards.

Teddy Bears have moderate energy levels, requiring daily walks and playtime for physical and mental stimulation.

Their life expectancy ranges between 12-15 years, with proper care and attention to health.

Potential health issues include hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, and allergies, so regular vet check-ups are necessary.

Teddy Bear dogs are known for their adorable, plush appearance, and their loving temperament makes them popular pets worldwide.
