Teddy Bear Dogs

Teddy Bear Dogs: The appearance of the tiny, lovable, new types of dogs called "Teddy Bear Dogs" (so called for their resemblance to the cuddly, teddy bear)  began in the late 1990s.

For many years Toy Dog breeds were popular as companions, pets and lapdogs for the wealthy, weighing 7 pounds or less when fully grown.

Dog breeders then developed even smaller dogs, called Teacup Dogs (because it was said this type of dog could fit into a teacup). Teacup Dogs weighed less than 4 pounds at the age of 12 months and measured just 17 inches in height. The popularity of the Toy and Teacup dogs grew, but some of these dogs a tendency toward being "yappy".

Dog Breeders started experimenting with producing hybrids of two or more breeds in the late 1990's that combined the characteristics, temperament and personality traits of Toy and Teacup Dog Breeds.
