With its dense, short coat the Teddy is a very popular breed that can have either a soft or wiry texture. They are an excellent choice is a pet for children as their grooming needs are minimal. Other than a regular weekly brush to remove debris their coats can be left to manage themselves as they do not tangle.
Teddies also have dry skin which means they do not need more than a couple of baths each year so, other than clipping their nails and keeping their ears clean, they are maintenance free.
They are a new breed also caused as a result of a crossbred mutation but they do not have any particular health issues associated with them.
They are a curious and attention seeking animal and want a lot of human contact so they will enjoy being out of their cages on a regular basis.
