What breed is a teddy bear puppy?

Answer

Bred for looks, the teddy bear puppy is not a pure breed. It is a mix of the Shih Tzu and the poodle (shi poo), the bichon frise and the poochon (toy poodle), or the Shiz Tzu and the bichon frise (zuchon).

The teddy bear puppy is so named because the fluffy coat resembles a stuffed animal or teddy bear. A feature of the teddy bear pup is the relatively allergy-free fur. Small, family-friendly and social, the life expectancy of the teddy bear dog is 12 to 16 years. Generally easy to train, the teddy bear breed is not highly active.
