Are you looking for a Sheepadoodle puppy in Massachusetts?
Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be any dedicated Sheepadoodle breeders in the state. After doing some research, I was unable to locate a single one.
This doesn’t mean that you aren’t entirely out of luck. I have a few alternative ways for you to adopt a Sheepadoodle in MA. I will outline these methods in this article.
Sheepadoodle Breeders in MA
There are no dedicated Sheepadoodle breeders in the state of Massachusetts. This doesn’t mean there won’t be a breeder in the future. Those looking for a Sheepadoodle puppy in MA must explore a few options.
Small Family Breeders
If you search for Sheepadoodle puppies near you on the internet, you may find local or small family breeders breeding Sheepadoodles.
Often, these small family breeders won’t have the budget or interest to build a website. Instead, they market their puppies on a third-party site or social media. They may also put their puppies up for sale in the local newspaper.
Check Facebook and Instagram for people that live near you that have a Sheepadoodle. They may have insight into these small, local breeders.
However, no matter where you buy your Sheepadoodle, it is crucial that you do your research. Just because a local family breeds Sheepadoodles doesn’t mean they’re doing it right.
It would be best if you planned to visit and do your due diligence to ensure the puppies are being raised in the proper environment.
You may come across an odd lot of Sheepadoodle puppies in Massachusetts. These litters often happen by accident.
My sister got a German Shepherd puppy from a “one-off” litter. The puppies were an accident, but she lucked out and got a great dog for her family.
One-off litters are rare but possible. You will have to look for the local classifieds, Facebook, flyers, and word of mouth.
It may sound odd, but you can have a Sheepadoodle puppy shipped to you. A handful of Sheepadoodle breeders across the United States will offer ground or air shipping to Massachusetts.
Keep in mind that shipping a puppy often requires an additional fee.
Driving to nearby states
Why limit your search to just Massachusetts? Sometimes the best pups are worth a drive.
There are dedicated, reputable Sheepadoodle breeders in neighboring states. Just a few hour drive and you can adopt the perfect pup!

“[Our puppy is] very calm, but very confident! She didn’t hide or shy away from any other dogs, even though it was her first visit.
I’m sure you hear this from everyone, but I have never in my life seen a puppy get so much attention from passers-by.
I took her with me on some errands yesterday in the tote bag and at one point I had a crowd of more than ten people gathered around me on the sidewalk . . . admiring her and asking me how often I would be in the neighborhood and to please come back soon with her. It was hilarious.”
We are so grateful to you all at RVD!”Tory
