Teddy Bear Dogs for Sale
Teddy bear dogs are a new breed that originated in the United States, named for their sweet and cuddly appearance. Also known as a Zuchon or Shichon, they’re a cross between the small Shih Tzu and the affectionate Bichon Frise. Originally bred as therapy animals for special needs children, they’re calm, gentle and affectionate, making them ideal companions. On average, an adult teddy bear dog is less than 12 inches in height and weighs between 10 and 12 pounds.
Teddy bear dogs are friendly and social and get along well with children and other pets. They do enjoy lots of attention and are happiest being near their owners. While they’re lively and active, they need only moderate exercise to stay fit, such as a daily walk and some playtime. Teddy bear dogs are well-mannered, intelligent and fairly easy to train. Their fluffy fur needs a trim every two to three months and regular brushing to prevent matting.
