Teddy Bear Puppies

They are a cross of Shih Tzu and  Bichon  known best as the Teddy Bear bear also known as the following three names Shichon , Tzu Frise and Zuchon.

They are a wonder lap dog and as well as hypo-allergic and non- shredding. They have a wonderful personality . The teddy bears (shih tzu/bichon cross)  like Bichons do not need to know everything that is going on. If the door bell rings they look at you and say do you have that…is it anybody to visit me…Ok…I’ll be over here playing with my toys.

Sometimes if you are going to talk so long without saying hello to me I just go lay down over here with my toys.

More about the Teddy Bear puppies they are a relatively new type of dog, and have only been around since the late 1990’s.  The name “Teddy Bear” doesn’t officially refer to one specific breed, but is most commonly used in descriptions of a cross breed between a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu.  However, the term “Teddy Bear” has been widely used to describe different hybrids between breeds like: Toy Poodles, Shih Tzu, Bichon Frise, Yorkshire Terriers, Cocker Spaniels, Daschunds, and Schnauzers.

Teddy Bear dogs can grow to be up to 20 lbs., but usually weigh between 11-16 when fully grown.  They can be a mixture of different colors including white, black, and many different shades of brown.

Teddy Bears are extremely loyal dogs and love physical contact.  It is not unusual for a Teddy Bear take a midday nap on your lap, or at your feet.  They usually get along very well with other pets, especially other dogs, and are very good with small children.  In fact, they started out being bred as therapy dogs for children with disabilities.  Their mild temperament makes them the perfect companion for just about anyone.  They do not typically bark, but they will if they sense danger, or when someone new enters their house for the first time.
