How is the idea of having a living teddy bear with his own little palace in a luxury dog kennel? If you want to bring home a pet, let’s share some facts about teddy bear dog breeds with you.

These dogs may be hybrids or purebreds. As the name suggests, the dogs have a resemblance with Teddy Bears. Breeds like teacup yorkies,cockapoos, and Zuchons have cute features like a soft coat, round and bright eyes and a small nose.

Still, many things are under observance like canine hip dysplasia, liver disease, and epilepsy. This active breed needs plenty of space and requires at least thirty minutes to play twice every day.
