Our Story

The legacy of habibi bears, the beloved teddy bear breed developed exclusively for Emotional Support  & therapy 

At Habibi Bears, the heart of our mission shines through the name itself, a name that's synonymous with love and affection. 'HABIBI', a nod to our Egyptian roots, is a warm Arabic word that means 'my love' or 'sweetheart'. It's a term that's all about endearment, caring, and deep connection. And then there's 'BEAR', chosen for the irresistible teddy bear look that our dogs are known for – cuddly, soft, and just waiting for a hug.  Every aspect of our breed is infused with this spirit of love and the desire to heal. It's not just about creating a pet; it's about fostering a companion that will bring joy, comfort, and a sense of well-being into your home. So, when you hear 'Habibi Bear' – it's a promise of love, a symbol of the cherished bond between you and your dog. 

 These dogs are part of a legacy that goes way back to the Bichon Frisé family from the Mediterranean. Picture this: sailors traveling with their furry friends, who then mingled with the local dogs, leading to the Bichon family tree that includes breeds like the Coton de Tulear and the Maltese. 

But our Habibi Bears? They're a modern twist on that story. We've carefully bred them with a clear purpose and the aid of modern science: to be healthy companions for those in need of a little extra love and support. They're also allergy-friendly, don't shed, and come in a bunch of colors and sizes. 

Since 1989, we've been all about quality over quantity, with just a few litters each year. This way, we ensure that each Habibi Bear is as perfect as can be, and we only share them with folks who'll cherish them as much as we do. We're pretty selective about where our puppies end up because we're dedicated to keeping our breed as healthy and happy as ever. Our little ones are smart, have a natural ability to bond, and are just waiting to become someone's emotional support or therapy dog – or simply a beloved pet. 

At Habibi Bears, we see breeding as an art form, pouring our hearts into each litter. If you're curious for more, or ready to discuss your unique needs, don't hesitate to reach out today. We're here to find the perfect match for you and your family

Developing a Dog with a special purpose and a program to support them

Hello! I'm Julie, the devoted guardian of Habibi Bear dogs and the pioneer of the Habibi Method. My life's calling is to raise dogs that form heartfelt connections with children who require emotional companionship. It's been a fulfilling path, building meaningful relationships between individuals and dogs, and discovering new avenues for the human-dog bond in therapy, particularly for Autism and trauma.
The Habibi Method is more than a set of practices; it's a journey toward a profound partnership with your dog, emphasizing the healing nature of our relationships with these compassionate creatures.
Our Habibi Bears are not ordinary dogs; they serve as comforters and helpers in various therapeutic and care environments. Each one possesses a natural aptitude for healing, and our goal is to cultivate this and ensure they find a home where their gifts can flourish. We approach this with dedication and care, knowing that the right match is worth the wait.
Each Habibi Bear is the result of health-conscious breeding, ensuring a robust gene pool and vital well-being. They are exclusive to our program, a testament to our adherence to the highest standards of ethics and our commitment to our foundational mission.
My journey with these dogs began out of a passion for their unique role in our lives and the recognition of their therapeutic potential. Decades on, that passion is still the heart of our global community. Each Habibi Dog continues to amaze me with their remarkable ability to open hearts and bring joy. Serving as their caretaker is more than a role; it's a part of who I am, and it's deeply rewarding to be part of something that so beautifully connects the hearts of humans and dogs.
