SKY-pending's Story...
Sky is a sweet 1 year old girl who adjusted easily into her new foster home. She arrived on 7-22 weighing in at 36 pounds. She was a bit hesitant at first, but within the first hour she warmed up to everyone in my house and her loving personality came out. She gets along well with my dog and every member in our family. She's great with people and children. She loves belly rubs, cuddles, and hugs. She "hugs" by coming up to people and pushing her head against them until they put their arms around her for a cuddle. She has a good appetite and loves any type of treat. She knows fetch with a ball, but her favorite game is to play tug-of-war with a fluffy stuffed animal toy.

UPDATE: Sky behaved well when I gave her a bath. Although she didn't seem thrilled by the bath, she didn't try to run out of the tub or cry. She sleeps in her crate downstairs at night without any issues or barking. She's learning how to be walked on a leash and is easily trainable. She's a very smart dog who is capable of learning a lot!

UPDATE: She has very pretty eyes that are half light brown and half bright blue. Besides her looks, she has a very sweet heart and a great disposition. The only time I've heard her make a noise was when she cried by the door for me to let her outside to use the bathroom. She's fully potty trained and knows the basic commands of sit, stay, and "no". Any family would be lucky to have her!

Update: Sky has gotten very comfortable at her foster home and with her daily routine. She enjoys playing tug-of-war with my dog for a few minutes before she gets tired and plops in her crate for a necessary nap break. She quickly learned that couches are for the humans and the crate is her bed. She discovered "Beggin Strips" and is eager to learn any trick in order to get one. She learned "paw" and "up" yesterday. She also started a new habit she learned from my dog of sitting by the door whenever she needs to use the bathroom. She LOVES being outside and hanging out in the backyard with or without people. She can sniff and search all day long. She's a very sweet girl who has no problems with making herself comfortable right on your lap to get some 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SKY-pending, a West Milford Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd 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 Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
