10 dogs that are cuter than teddy bear

1. Poodle

The traditional poodle cut is commonly seen in people’s minds as having poofs of fur all over the body. Did you know that poodles may also be groomed to resemble teddy bears, complete with uniformly fluffy fur?


The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes two sizes for poodles. Poodles can range in size from 40 to 70 pounds, with standard poodles being over 15 inches tall.


Their fur is long and wavy and keeps growing the whole time. The fur of these creatures may appear to shed less frequently because it grows more like human hair. Expect to take your dog to the groomer once every four to six weeks, or put in a lot of time learning how to do it yourself.

2. Maltese

Maltese dogs typically range in size from 7 to 9 inches tall and 4 to 6 pounds. What a cute tiny stuffed animal of a dog breed!

Like poodles, the hair on these puppies never stops growing. They shed relatively little, yet lengthy fur requires frequent trims and daily brushing.

Despite their white coats, Maltese occasionally have black tips. Personality-wise, they’re lighthearted and loving. They are likely to be tiny snuggle bugs, so families who plan to leave them alone for lengthy stretches of time should look elsewhere.
When it comes to Shih Tzus, it’s not all bad news.

3. Shih Tzu

There’s a solid reason why Shih Tzus are so popular. They’re approachable, warm, and flexible.

They weigh 9-16 pounds and stand 9-10.5 inches tall. Their long, silky hair seldom sheds, but it must be trimmed or brushed every day to prevent matting, which may cause continual, excruciating pulling on the skin.

According to the AKC breed standard, Shih Tzus can have a broad array of fur colors, color combinations, and markings.
