    Teddy Bear Face?

    Can anyone tell me what a teddy bear faced dog is supposed to be? I have looked everywhere, and can find nothing that tells me what this is supposed to mean.

    I have heard of teddy bear dogs (that's the kind that whimz has-they are specially mixed!). In malteses, the expression baby doll face is used to me a dog that has a roundish head with a short muzzle and not much of a stop. Also big eyes.

    Sounds to me like a descriptive term. sort of like saying a particular dog is a teacup.

    So cute!!!!!!! Love the black and tan. The teddy bear faced Poms I've seen typically have a much wider muzzle than these two, yet they don't have the traditional fox face where the muzzle is rounder, narrower and longer (Cali is a fox face) either. Maybe they're in-between. I'll see if I can find a pic. Note that the baby face is almost always what you see in the show ring.

    Here is the best I could do (you can see that the nose is much closer to the face than a fox faced Pom (see my avatar):

    Kirby is given a "teddy bear face variation" as the groomers would say when he goes in for a full groom including trim.
