Adoption Process

Placing puppies that compliments your lifestyle is our top priority. While the puppies are growing and developing, during the 8 weeks in our care, we are evaluating their individual personalities, temperament, and energy.  As fun and helpful as it can be thru pictures or short visits, it is not always obvious which puppy is the ideal fit for your family.  We believe that with specific guidance from us together with your detailed application, we will be able to match the perfect puppy for you.  We understand people have preferences, and we will do our best to honor those, but first and foremost our priority is to match puppies and families based on personality and temperament.  


 Our adoption process will be as follows:


  • Fill out an initial application.  Please be as specific as possible as to what you are looking for in your future puppy (energy level, color, size, sex, lifestyle needs).


  • We will contact you once your application is approved and let you know. Place your $500 deposit by check, Paypal or Venmo. This will put you on the master reservation list.​

  •  When making your reservation we will be able to give you a window of when to expect a puppy. When a litter is born we will contact you when your name is up and you will be offered a puppy from that litter. If the timing, temperament, or size of dog does not work for you, no problem, you can pass and wait for the next available litter. 


  • Once puppies are born you will receive an email birth announcement. We ask that you respond within 24 hours to secure your place in this litter, if wanted. Once confirmed, you will then receive weekly emails from us with updates, FAQ’s, suggestions, etc.  You can also view your puppies on Facebook as we update every 1-2 weeks. 

  • At 5 weeks of age, your final payment of $3,300 is due. 

  • At 6 weeks, on a date decided by us, you will be invited to "visit" the puppies by Zoom or FaceTime,  by appointment.  


  • Between 6-7 weeks puppies will have a wellness exam by our licensed veterinarian and temperament testing by our certified trainer. Monadnock Labradoodles will then determine which puppy best meets your requests as outlined in your application and your puppy will be matched to you.  Once the list is finalized, we will call you and let you know which puppy is yours! (If for some unforeseen reason, we do not believe we have a puppy that matches your needs, we will let you know and discuss moving your reservation to a different litter.)



  • At 8 weeks of age your puppy goes home to you.  (If you choose the board and train option with Liz they will go home at 9 weeks. See that page for more info.)  Puppies are generally picked up in person, but we do deliver as well. Cost of delivery varies depending on location which we are happy to work with you on this in advance.  In the event that you are not able to pick up your puppy on the scheduled date a $50.00 a day fee will be charged to cover boarding expenses up to 3 days.
