How Much Does a Teddy Bear Puppy Cost?

Teddy bear puppies, a fairly new category of dog, are a mix of crossing multiple small dog breeds, such as the Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu, to create a dog that looks like a teddy bear.  When these two breeds are combined, they won’t be called a teddy bear puppy, but rather, a name will be given.  For example, if a breeder were to breed the Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu, then the correct name would be a Zuchon.  You can refer to our table below to see the many teddy bear breeds currently on the arket.

The price of the puppies, just like any other dog breed, depends on the age, the gender, the quality, the dog’s history and the breeder selling the dog.

How much is it?

Type of Teddy Bear PuppyDescriptionAverage Price
Bichon Frise + Poodle = PoochonOften known as one of the most expensive teddy bear puppy, this dog can be energetic at home; however, they won't require much exercise outside. They are great with kids, other animals and will be a very low shedder, making them ideal for hotter climates.$500 to $1,000
Bichon Frise + Shih Tzu = Zuchon or Tzu FriseIdeal for smaller spaces, the Zuchon can be okay with children as long as they know how to properly handle a pet. Due to their smaller structure, they are more prone to injuries. Grooming and exercise is minimal.$500 to $1,000
Maltese + Poodle = MaltipooA good walk here and there is ideal for this breed to keep them happy throughout the day. Like the Zuchon, this dog can work well with children but they need to know how to properly handle. They can be great for an apartment-like setting but can't be left alone for long periods of time.$500 to $1,000
Maltese + Shih Tzu = MalshiThis happy breed will demand some exercise outside and can work well with children and other pets. It's known to be a low shedder and can weigh up to 12 pounds, making it one of the larger teddy bear breeds.$500 to $1,300
Shih Tzu + Poodle = Shih-PooAlso known as the Schnoodle, this breed is rather lively and can do well in a smaller setting. THis breed is great with younger children and other pets and can closely resemble the Poodle and Shih Tzu.$400 to $900
Teddy Bear PomeranianThis breed loves to be around strangers; however, out of all breeds on this list, it has been known to bark successfully.$500 to $1,000
Yorkshire Terrier + Maltese = MorkieThe Morkie is known to be happy with just a short walk and usually will want to be around adults only. While it isn't the easiest breed to train, it can train well with those who are patient.$500 to $1,500
