The term “Teddy Bear” is used to describe a certain type of hybrid dog that is bred by crossing specific breeds, usually a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu, although other breeds can also be involved.
The resulting hybrid dog typically has a round, cuddly appearance, with a fluffy and soft coat, which is why they are named after the popular stuffed toy. These dogs are often small in size, weighing between 6 and 14 pounds and can stand anywhere from 9 to 12 inches tall at the shoulder.
Other breeds that are often involved in Teddy Bear breeding programs include Poodle, Yorkshire Terrier, and Maltese. While these dogs are not recognized as a distinct breed, they are often in high demand due to their cute and affectionate nature.
It is important to note that because Teddy Bear dogs are not a recognized breed, they may not have consistent characteristics or temperaments. Therefore, it is essential to research the individual breeds that are used in their breeding and the breeder’s reputation to ensure that you are getting a healthy and well-socialized puppy.
