Teddy bear came from Teddy Roosevelt,an American president who was also very into hunting.He once refused to shoot a bear cub with it's mother.Press decided very cute and a toymaker came out with Teddy bears.As far as breeds becoming popular I've had my beardie and my collie and my cairn for many years.Lassie,Toto and the Shaggy dog there not.Breed fads develop for so many reasons the only thing people in rescue can do is try to educate people before they get a new puppy or help clean up after the stupid fad ends.
