Belgian Malinois in Need of a Foster Home
|WE NEED QUALIFIED FOSTER HOMES!! Fill out the foster app found on our main page under "the process".|
The following dogs are waiting to be placed in an ABMC approved foster home so that vetting can be done and we have the time to evaluate them for approriate placement.
Boarding fees have hit us hard this year and have caused us to slow down on intake of rescue dogs. If you are interested in contributing to our boarding needs there is a link to Network for Good on our main page http://partners.guidestar.org/controller/searchResults.gs?action_donateReport=1&partner=networkforgood&ein=81-6099454
|Briggs - foster home found, thank you Joana!|
Briggs, approximately 3 years old is floppy eared, fun, and a bundle of energy. He's very intelligent and is eager to please. Briggs love adults, kids and other dogs but will not be placed in a home with cats due to his prey drive. He'd do well with a job, but is capable of being happy without one so long as you allow plenty of time for energetic play (running around with another dog is great!). Briggs has a lot of energy, but lacks the intensity that would require structured work daily. He is currently being fostered in Toledo, OH, and has been making great strides but he has pretty severe separation anxiety, though, and the foster home feels he would be better off in a home where someone was home just a bit more. In the meantime, he is currently working with a behaviorist to help with his anxiety and he is improving.
Must be an ABMR approved foster home so if you're not already approved please fill out the foster app found on our website under "the process". Contact Julie for more information on fostering, firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Janice for more information on Briggs, email@example.com
|Daisy - foster home found, thank you Paige|
|Daisy, currently in PA, was picked up from the shelter on Saturday. She rode in the car very well - paced a little at first but then settled down nicely. She is the sweetest dog I think I have ever met and has a wonderful temperament. She is like glue and follows my husband and I around like a shadow. She is a total love bug and loves all people I've seen her interact with so far - the vet the vet techs, the people at the shelter.
When I brought her home, she needed a bath. The shelter said they removed a lot of ticks from her but I still was finding them on her so I loaded her in the tub and commenced with bathing her and she was so well behaved and let me remove more ticks and scrub on her and spray her with water - I am a total stranger and although she appeared confused and a little afraid at first by what I was doing, she let me do it and ended up looking at me with the most appreciative expression at the end - I guess it felt good to have all of the bugs and dirt removed.
From what I can tell, she has no training at all or if she has had training, I haven't figured out what language it would have been taught in. I've tried German, Dutch, French and English and hand signals but don't see recognition in her eyes at all. That being said, I am trying to teach her a few things and she is making progress. I think it will take a little bit of work before the light bulb comes on as to what I am trying to do since it appears no one tried to teach her anything. I also tried to play ball with her but she doesn't seem to know what that is either.
She is extremely well behaved and a perfect lady in the house. I have been keeping her separated from my dogs since I don't know what she might have been exposed to at the shelter and am keeping her isolated for a little while but I am able to leave her uncrated and she has not been mischievous or destructive at all and is very quiet. She loves to lay by the fireplace in the room she is in and is so grateful for any and all attention she gets. I take her for a walk in our woods every morning and when we come back, I inspect her for ticks (before they attach). I sit on the floor and she comes right over and sits and leans into me and when I ask her to lay down, she does so and then cuddles in my lap like I've never seen before. It's hard to describe other than to say she is a total love sponge.

We wish that we could help them all but because of the number of dogs already waiting for foster homes, all prospective Mainois intakes MUST be cleared through the coordinator for the state or region, or the dog will NOT be accepted into ABMC Rescue foster care. NO EXCEPTIONS.
