Everyone asks "What is a Teddy Bear?" I should have this posted all the time, but forget that not everyone is familiar. Lots of breeders call pups that look like a teddy bear a teddy bear. A true Teddy Bear has a Bichon Frise Mother and a Shih Tzu Father. Google the breed. It was originally mixed to work with autistic children, therefore, they are known for their wonderful temperaments. Depending on the litter, our pups usually weigh anywhere from 12-15#.
