Teddy Bear Dog Has Earned Its Place As One Of The Cutest Companion Dogs

Teddy bear dog
Teddy Bear Dogs vary in size but are normally quite small, weighing no more than 7-9 pounds. Because they are hybrids, it is difficult to determine what health/temperament issues may arise. If the dog comes from purebred parents, they will be susceptible to health problems from both breeds. If the dog is more than a mix of two purebreds, it becomes more difficult to pinpoint potential health issues. There are, however, ailments that are common to smaller dogs, for example eye and ear problems, sensitivity to the cold, and bloat if overfed. Teddy Bear dogs tend to be quite yappy and difficult to housetrain, but this can be alleviated through proper training. Beware when you buy theTeddy Bear for sale or Teddy Bear puppies for sale as they can become startled easily and may nip children, so they should be monitored when in the presence of others.
Teddy bear dogs are also raised for their temperament as they are very affectionate. They make great companion dogs and most are easy to train, though some do need firm handling. They are usually good with children. Grooming needs will vary depending on the breed mix. These dogs can weigh from seven to seventy seven pounds and stand nine to twenty one inches. Teddy Bear dogs are small, cute looking doll like dogs who bark less and are apt for all dog shows and apartment life.
Teddy bears were originally bred for handicapped children, so they could hug and squeeze them with out getting a nip and struggle and instead get licks and love in return. Their hairs are smooth, silky and straight. Thus many beautiful hair styles can be tried on them specially for dog shows. Teddy Bear dogs also like wearing beautiful cute looking dresses and do not mind them. They are very good with all types of games like swimming, catching games etc. and they learn all sorts of tricks easily. They adore their owners very much and love to play with them. They are quite sturdy, quite comfortable and happy to play with young children. Teddy bear puppies can be further designed to form more cute looking dogs with the use of Euro linage. Euro linage is the genetic coding in dog breeds with preferred features, such as size in our case the imperial bloodlines, hair coloring in our case selected standard bloodline, and structure in our case the Mediterranean bloodline. The lineages are carefully selected for this purpose and there is no need of altering its breed. The shichon is not high strung like most small dogs and has a rag doll feel to it, when picked up or cuddled.
Teddy bear puppies are small in stature, and remain small even into adulthood, growing to a height of approximately 12 inches. They weight a light 12 to 14 pounds as adult dogs.
The breed sports a soft, fluffy coat that doesn't shed like most dog breeds. It can be clipped short into a "puppy cut" or left long.
These dogs have round faces with squashed muzzles and large, endearing eyes, earning them their namesake. They also have medium length droopy ears and short, fluffy tails.
Their coat can come in virtually any colour, giving each dog its own uniqueness that isn't usually seen in other companion breeds such as theBichon Frise.
It is said that a dog is a man's best friend. We are familiar with different types of dogs, some of them have been with us for hundreds of years. Every breed of dog is admired for its characteristics or traits. Dogs of collie breed are famous for their magnificent coat, the greyhound for their speed and the German shepherds as police dogs. The latest trend, which for some time remained restricted to Hollywood celebrities is now sweeping the United States off its feet. Many individuals are paying big money to acquire a teddy bear dog for their family. This small and cute dog has managed to win many hearts. On the other hand, American Kennel Club, which is a registry of purebred dogs such as, Chihuahua dogs, Bichon Frise, greyhound dogs, bulldogs in the United States, counts this breed as a designer breed. Some people refer to them as 'mutts' to emphasize their mix breeding; however at present, dog lovers are not interested in this kind of branding. What is the reason behind this sudden popularity of teddy bear dog breed?


  1. My teddy bear is very lovable. He is not yappy thank God. He can Jump almost like a jack Russell. He is really laid back.
    His brother however is very yappy and aggressive. I guess like kids everyone has their own personality

  2. Find the most cutest teddy bear puppy dogs around by the puppy master. You'll see the world of puppies that you have ever imagined!

  3. We raised one from birth. He was the most loving dog I have ever owned. His manor-isms were adorable. He was very protective of our family and I would have to restrain him if he thought we were threatened. He was brought up with his still healthy Mother (Shiatsu) and his Father (Maltese) which passed a year ago at the age of 15. Unfortunately our Teddy Bear also passed a couple of weeks ago at the age of 8 years 10 months. He was happy and playful one day and the next he was struggling to breath. After 10 days of treatment for pneumonia he was unable to survive without oxygen and we were forced to put him down. The doctors were unsure of the reason for the sudden demise, but we suspect that he was born with some sort of condition as there were signs of it in retrospect. We loved him and, after his Mother passes, will definitely be trying to obtaining another like him. I highly recommend this breed for anyone looking for a lap dog that is not too small and is also playful and loving.
