Facts About Teddy Bear Puppies

The teddy bear is a hybrid dog that is the result of several different designer dog breeds. They can be the result of the Shih Tzu and Bichon Frize, Shih Tzu and Poodle, and the Bichon Frize and Miniature Poodle. In most cases, teddy bear puppies can be a mix of these three breeds.

Teddy bears vary in size, but are generally quite small, weigh between 12 and 14 pounds, and measure no more than 12 inches. All parent color variants are available in teddy bears. Because they are a mixture of many breeds, sometimes more than 2, they can come in a variety of coats and colors depending on the parent.
