Teddy Bear Puppies

When you consider bringing a puppy into your household, you often think cute and cuddly. Teddy bear puppies for sale fit the bill of adorable family companions that appeal to children. The great thing about Teddybear puppies is you can choose one from several breeds. Most of them are small, but all of them are fluffy-looking and undeniably more appealing than stuffed toys. An additional benefit is that many of the Bichon and Poodle mixes are hypoallergenic.

What are Teddy bear puppies?

Teddy bear puppies, like their names imply, will grow up to look like live versions of stuffed animals. Teddy bear puppies for sale looks like balls of fur with woolly hair and button eyes. Even as adults, they retain their cute Teddy bear appearance with round faces, fluffy fur, dark lively eyes, and a rather short muzzle with a black nose. Finally, Teddy Bears are usually small-breed, Toy, or medium-sized dogs. They can be purebred or mixed. A few, like the Schihchon, are formally recognized as Teddy Bear dogs.
