WRIGLEY- 1 yr old's Story...
This handsome boy arrived on July 9th weighing in at 30 pounds. He is a one year old SWEETHEART! You can read more about him below. Please note that he is neutered, heartworm tested, rabies shot, Parvo Distemper shot, dewormed, flea treated etc.
This year old boy arrived with his tail wagging, happily greeting everyone. He was great on the short ride to his foster home that he shares with two medium sized female dogs. Wrigley was eager to explore the yard. Once inside he made himself right at home. He checked out the entire house and basked in attention. He was not at all bothered by the thunderstorms and easily settled into his crate for the night.

UPDATE: Wrigley slept quietly in his crate through the night, waiting to be let outside to relieve himself. He ate breakfast slowly alongside my dog and allowed me to put my hand in his bowl. He is very affectionate and loves to snuggle. Wrigley was enthuastic about going for a walk. After some initial pulling due to excitement, he walked well on the leash. He seems to know the sit command, for a treat at least. We are working on the stay/wait and come commands. Wrigley is food motivated and takes treats gently.

UPDATE: Wrigley went on several long walks today. His leash manners are improving and he loves to meet people and other dogs. We have also had a few short training sessions. He is doing well with basic commands alongside my well trained dog, picking up on verbal and visual cues. Wrigley was great for his bath most likely because he loves attention so much. He is a completely sweet, affectionate, and well mannered dog. Here is an additional video of a training session. Please copy and paste this link to view.

UPDATE: Wrigley has wonderful house manners. He is curious and still checking everything out, but has not engaged in any destructive or inappropriate behavior. He is easy going and not bothered by sounds or movements. While he is very social, he does not require constant attention. He will relax in a comfortable place of his choosing and comes when called. Training continues to go well. Wrigley will not eat treats that are dropped on the floor or walk out of an open door until invited to do so. He continues to sleep quietly in his crate through the night, waiting to be let out to relieve himself. Wrigley has not had any accidents in the house-someone is always home with him and we spend much time outside.

UPDATE: Wrigley's good behavior has earned him free range of the house while I go out on short errands, nor is he crated at night. While he does not mind being crated, he is well behaved and does not require it. We spent time this morning hanging out with the neighbor's cat. Wrigley was friendly towards the cat and the cat was comfortable in his presence. He walks nicely on the leash, but as a typical dog, is highly interested in squirrels. He is easy going and would make a great addition to home.

You can get a link to our Facebook page at If you are interested in adopting, please complete and submit an application.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

WRIGLEY- 1 yr old, a West Milford Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound dog from a breeder in West Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Milford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West Milford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
