found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
UPDATE: It’s been an exciting morning! Molly was getting frustrated with the gated space/x-pen so we removed them. She’s loving her freedom, and the other dogs are loving being around her! She was let off leash in the backyard for the first time..she had such a blast running and playing! And then to top it off, she went up a flight of stairs while on her leash. So many new things for Molly, and she’s thriving! Here is a video that you can copy and paste to see her off leash in the yard with a dog friend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xEDcvbHiBQ
UPDATE: Update: Molly went to the vet last night. She did very well in the car on the ride there and back home - I use a “dog seatbelt,” and she sat still the entire ride! While at the vet, she was diagnosed with microphthalmia. She inherited a gene that caused her to be born with smaller eyes. Molly is able to see out of her left eye, but not from her right eye. Unfortunately, nothing can be done to correct this. The vet also verified that she is deaf. This diagnosis will not discourage us or Molly! She is doing so well, and making great strides every day!
Update: Molly had a bath this morning! I actually bathed her in the shower, so she could physically feel my presence. She positioned herself between my feet so she could feel my legs. As soon as the water hit her back, it seemed to have a soothing, calming effect on her. She relaxed and leaned again my leg and lifted her head to the water. An excellent start to the day!
UPDATE: Molly is acclimating to her surroundings a little more every day. She is now able to walk in and out the back door (with 2 steps) by herself, as well as up and down the 3 paver steps to the yard! She is enjoying hours of exercise inside and out every day. She is also loving her crate. She’s been sleeping in it regularly at night, but today I watched her walk in and lay down for a nap! Molly likes to be where I am, and I often find her laying or playing by my feet. She enjoys playing most on sunny days - when it’s night or cloudy it’s harder for her to see. We started working on a command for “come” today, and she continues to do great with “sit” and “down."
UPDATE: Molly has made amazing strides since she arrived last Saturday. A week ago she was was running into walls/people/dogs and knew nothing about her surroundings. Today she is able to find her way outside, go up and down 2-3 paver steps at a time, go UP full flights of stairs on her own, “sit" and "lay down" with hand commands, understand touch commands for “attention” and “good girl,” and is beginning to walk well on a leash. She is now happy taking naps and doesn’t need to be in her crate to do so. I am so incredibly proud of her and the progress she has made thus far. Every day she learns something new!
UPDATE: Molly is now going UP AND DOWN stairs all on her own! She’s becoming more confident by the day. She has also discovered a love of ice cubes. She has a hard time locating them if she drops them, but enjoys playing with them! Molly loves her crate - I find her in it every time she wants to snooze. She is noticeably more comfortable when people come to visit, and loves to kiss everyone that let her!

Be sure to list the dog's names that you are interested in on the first question within the application. Please be sure your application is complete. The 1st question asks which dogs you are interested in. To see additional dogs, see our adoptable pet list at www.sherylsden.org
This animal is currently fostered in a private home. Our rescue is 100% foster home based. We do not have a shelter or kennel. They are cared for by a loving family until adopted. Each pup has had their first vet exam, a shot, and de-worming, etc We make sure they have no fleas prior to going into our foster homes. They are fostered out of the shelter at least two weeks or more prior to adopting to monitor health. We take their care seriously! Please note that the adoption appointments will be scheduled after your application is approved. Once adopted, feel free to change the dog's name. You do not have to keep the name listed in this post.
All dogs over 6 months are spayed/Neutered, rabie shot, heartworm tested, parvo distemper shot, and dewormed. IF YOU ADOPT a pup and live in the State of New Jersey we do have low cost spaying and neutering at very affordable prices. Kindly inquire upon an approved application. We also have an affordable program for out of state adopters.
We also offer low cost micro-chipping! For a low fee of only 20.00 we will have your dog microchipped. You will be able to register the microchip for a low cost fee of only 10.99 at the time of the adoption appointment. The 10.99 fee is a ONE time registration fee. The microchip is for the lifetime of the dog. You have the ability to update the contact information at NO cost. You will also have a one year membership to Home Again. This is a big savings for you.
***** If you're interested in fostering we could always use the help to save more animals. A crate, food, and medical care are provided. The animals are picked up in West Milford, NJ and brought back here for adoption. The time commitment is two to two and a half weeks. Please email letting us know what town you live in and we will forward information to you. *****
Sheryl's Den has teamed up with Petfirst Health care in an effort to offer pet insurance for your adopted family member. If you wish, you can enroll once you adopt. Your coverage will begin following your activation. The first 30 days are free! There is no cost to the adopter for this 30-day protection (This program is available in all US states and Washington DC, but not NY at this time) The 30-day coverage plan ensures the pets adopted are covered for accidents and illnesses. This plan provides $1,000 aggregate/ $500 per-incident limit of accident and illness protection. It reimburses 100% of vet bills after a $50 per-incident deductible. To activate the insurance, pet parents must call 1-855-710-7387. The insurance is not active until the adopter activates it, and is not retroactive to the date of the adoption. Once their insurance is active, they use the veterinarian of their choice and submit their bills for reimbursement, which PetFirst processes in as little as two weeks. Adopters have the option to extend or upgrade their coverage at the time of activation.
