UPDATE: Tigger has excellent house manners and has earned the privilege of the run of the house even when she is left alone. She has not chewed anything she shouldn’t however she does have access to a basket filled with nylabones and toys which are sometimes found scattered about. She waits to be invited up onto the couch, she has been clean and quiet and she is very easy to have around. Tigger has the best leash manners this foster mom has experienced with a new foster pup. She stays right by my side and watches for guidance and cues. The more we walk, the more she explores but she is always tuned in to the other end of the leash. She does get very alert and excited when we see deer but still she resists the urge to pull.
UPDATE: Tigger has wonderful dog social skills. She avoids the resident senior dog who has no interest in her and gently solicits play from her foster sister who is more willing (and twice her size!). Her play style is quiet and gentle; she usually ends up on her back so she can bat her playmate with her paws, then jumps to her feet and shows off her speed and agility. Never has a cross sound been uttered. Tigger comes to the office with me where she is with 3 more dogs, all of whom she gets along very well with. She is quiet and calm both in the office and at home, occasionally picking out a bone or toy to chew/play with, either with one of the other dogs or by herself. Tigger is sweet, sensitive, easy and affectionate and she will do great with an adopter who is the same.
UPDATE: Tigg is such a wonderful, easy dog but sadly, she only reveals her true colors around those who spend time with her in an environment in which she has become comfortable. She is very shy with new people as she was her first day in this foster's care however after just a few hours, she lets her guard down and will approach, play and finally snuggle. Tigger will thrive in a calm, quiet home in which she is allowed to blossom at her own pace; the more patience she is shown, the quicker she will seek and offer affection as she now shows her foster family. With patience comes great love.

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.
