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

Low cost spay and neuter program

Titus Titus  
Titus, estimated to be about 3-4 years old, neutered and UTD vaccinations.  He's been labeled as a "well-behaved, nice dog".  And based on all reports received to date, he is a relatively easy Malinois, though he could probably use a refresher course on some basic obedience commands.  

He's good on a leash and has shown absolutely NO aggression of any kind while in boarding.  He LOVES people and pretty much ignores other dogs around him.  Even when introduced to other dogs, he's been great!  He still has a lot of "puppy" in him, so he can be active at times -- no big surprise given the fact he's a Malinois.

He doesn't mind taking a bath, being groomed, having his nails trimmed ... heck he even tolerates the dryer!

He is a clean 'fella ... has had no accidents in his run.  Speaking of run (or crate), he did have issues with going into his run at first, but with love, patience ... oh and treats ... the staff at the boarding facility has been able to help him learn "it's ok to go in"

It's believed he will easily learn to live in a home with small dogs, there should still be constant and extreme caution taken should his future foster have a small dog.  And, though he's shown no interest in the "house cat" at the boarding facility, it's probably best that he not go to a cat home. MUST be an ABMR approved foster home. Please contact Tracey: or Julie at

Tia Tia  

Hi, I am Tia, a six (seven on May 5) year old Belgian Malinois. My given name is Xanti From Mike's Place in the Netherlands. I was adopted, along with my sister, at 10 weeks old. My sister and I have the same sire (Biesser Van Joefarm) and our mothers had the same father (Klemm vom Roten Falken), so we are actually 3/4 sisters. We were best friends with occasional fights, but now we try to kill each other. So, I am looking for a home where I can be either an only dog, or at least an only female dog. I am loving, playful, loyal, trustworthy (with babies!), energetic, and smart as the dickens. However, I have a bit of separation anxiety and am wary of some people and other dogs. I do NOT like raised voices, or zombie movies. The perfect home for me would be a steady, structured environment with some space and good fences where I could be with my human(s) most of the time. I like to work and am high drive! I can figure out puzzles, love to fetch, will box you, lick your ears, and will pull you for miles if you hitch my harness to your bike. I am ready to GO! Let my pack leaders know if you're interested by sending me a message. Woof!

Trigger Trigger  
URGENT. Experienced foster home needed for a 3-yr old currently intact male (neuter to be done in foster care). Trigger has had almost no socialization and has spent most of his time in a small crate and will need someone who can help him learn the skills to be a good companion. He bonds closes and quickly with his person, and once he learns he can trust you, he is very affectionate, playful—and protective. He has not been exposed to much, and has some fear aggression. His ideal foster would be a quiet, structured household with a larger, easy going dog to show him the ropes! He is medium energy level. Trigger is up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm negative. Unknown prey drive, and he will not be placed with cats, children, or small dogs. Must be an ABMR approved foster home. Contact Julie :

Qualified foster homes desperately needed in Texas. Must become an ABMR approved foster home.  
Pepper - female, spayed, UTD on shots, about 2 years old.  Amputation of left front leg due to a dislocated elbow that was never fixed.  Heartworm positive (in stage one of treatment).  Has recovered from amputation great!  Happy girl, ok with other dogs who aren't pushy.  Have no idea about small dogs or cats. Contact Penny :  
Murphy - male about 2 years old, UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm positive (in stage 2 of treatment).  An old soul in a young body.  Sweet with people, but not really fond of other dogs.  Contact Penny :  
Chip - male about 5 years old, UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm negative.  Clearly has had a rough life, but sweet, plenty of energy, knows some obedience, only negative is that he is a love nipper and not a nibble - a full nip!  Very mouthy so will not be placed with young children.  Do not yet know how he is with other dogs.  Kennels and crates easily can be a bit barky in a kennel. Contact Penny :  
Romel - five year old male. Lost his owner due to illness and a friend took him in only to find out that his son was strongly allergic to dogs.  This dog is HUGE and very POWERFUL!  Allows people to pet him, but will fight you over a leash.  No biting, but pulling and growling (it's not playful!!).  Experienced malinois person needed.  Contact Penny :  
Abby Abby  

Abby, 1 year-old, female (spayed and UTD) Owner Surrender in Fredericksburg, VA

The person who met and evaluated Abby for me, our volunteer took her female Malinois, River along with her per my request, as the owners seem to believe Abby is dog aggressive.  Easier to explain why they think that by phone, if/when you have time, but the bottomline, and Jenny and Abby’s current “dad” agrees, it’s situational, exaggerated by the wife/”mom” and with a little bit of training and a confident handler, Abby will be just fine.

Anyway, when Abby and River first met, Abby growled and lunged at River.  But with no reaction/response from River, and one correction from our volunteer, Abby relaxed and eventually went on an 8-minute walk side-by-side with River.

“Abby appears to be very smart, attentive, and eager to please.  As a stranger she did show some fear when I came into her home.  This manifested itself into barking and lunging my way, but when allowed to approach on a loose leash she would sniff me at the greatest distance possible.  She did attempt to jump up on me, but not viciously.  Within 2 minutes of entering the home however, she was my best friend.  She did NOT try to bite me at any time.

“Abby was fine going on a walk and taking direction from me.  She was eager to work for hot dogs and knew how to sit.  The owners said she knew "down" but she only listened when I provided some guidance.

“Abby got excited over the ball but would not play tug-of-war with it (ball on a string) or engage excitedly with me.  I believe she is used to retrieving the ball and dropping it upon coming back.  The owners stated this was her main form of exercise.

“Abby has a lot of energy and is still very young.  She needs to be provided rules and trained on how to behave.

“I truly believe that with a little training and consistency Abby could be an amazing dog.  I think she would excel at anything her family wanted her to do.  I also believe it would be beneficial to have her doing some sort of "sport," such as agility, fly ball, dock diving, etc.”

Looking for an experienced foster home for Abby. MUST be an ABMR approved foster home. Contact Tracey: or Julie:

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.
