Top 16 Teddy Bear Dog Breeds You Will Adore

You are probably here to look at some of the cutest dog breeds ever.

Before presenting the dog breeds to you, let me highlight a few things briefly.

Some pure dog breeds already have teddy bear-like characteristics. These include Poodles, Bichon Frises, Shih Tzus, Yorkies, Malteses, and Pomeranians. It seems like almost any combination of these will create a new dog breed that will look even more like a teddy bear than its parents.

Dog shelters sometimes have some of these teddy bear lookalike breeds. If possible, be sure to adopt one instead of buying. If you still seek to buy one for yourself or your loved one, their cost can vary pretty wildly based on the breeds that make up the mix. The prices for teddy bear dogs range from as low as $500 up to as high as $4000.

Without further ado, here are some of the cutest teddy bear dog breeds on the planet!

👑 Cavapoo

Bichon Frise

One of the fluffiest pure dog breeds and an ancestor to many of the mixed dog breeds on this list has taken this prestigious spot. It’s the Bichon Frise, of course.
