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
Malinois Rescue needs an experienced foster home for Charlie, a 2 year old sweet working lines boy who is a diamond in the rough and needs a home to keep him busy, engaged and to discover his amazing talents. Charlie has ball and hunt drive and is a bit of a bull in a china shop. He's newly neutered, up to date on his shots but needs further evaluation for a skin condition that could be an allergy, an auto-immune response or stress. He's currently on a raw diet but nothing has definitely helped -- yet -- with his skin condition, which started when he was just over a year old. Skin scrapings have come out negative and he has completed two rounds of Revolution. He is not considered to be contagious.
He's a big boy and very handsome and has a good start on obedience. He's confident, not at all dog-aggressive, lived in a house with a cat (but any introductions should be very careful), a teenager and a two year old -- and two little Pomeranian dogs. Charlie is a big boy. He is large boned and close to 27 inches at the shoulder. When he fills out at close to his ideal weight of 80 pounds, he will be one impressive dog. Please consider fostering -- Charlie needs a place where he can learn, grow, thrive and bond!
Rebel, currently located in FL, is in need of an experienced foster/adopter. He has come a long way in the nine months he has been with his current foster home but he needs to move on now and either go to a permanent home or to another experienced foster home. He was apparently kept tied to a car and had little to no training. He was very emaciated and has put on much needed weight. He has been neutered and is heartworm negative. He is 5+years old and is a very handsome, energetic dog.
He knows his basic commands and has finally learned to take treats gently with a reminder to “take it easy” so additional training will be much easier. He is starting to discover toys though he is not sure what to do with them other than tear them up or run into his crate with them. He has not tried to get out of the 4 foot chain link fence either over or under. He has learned not to jump up on people but forgets sometimes as he is starting to become happy and is excited to see you but will stop with the “off” command. He has learned to “leave it” and is much better about his counter surfing but can be an opportunist so still needs watching when out of his crate. He has been improving with his house training but occasionally will mark objects inside.
He walks well on a leash using a prong collar but does pull if just using a regular collar. He shows appropriate behavior when encountering people on his walks but can be skittish with barking dogs.
Rebel wants to please and learns new things quickly. He is very sweet with Foster mom but is very reactive to people that come into the house and seems to still have some trust issues. On that note, he is also reactive to the vacuum and garbage bags.
He gets along well with his foster mom's female Malinois and loves to be with her but does play very rough. He has had a couple of encounters with dog savvy cats with no incidents but I think he would chase them if they run and am not sure what he would do as he has caught and killed a couple of rodents. Not sure how he would be with small children in the home but may be too rambunctious.
He would do best in a rural area as he can be quite vocal. He likes to remind you if he thinks it is time for a meal. He howls when he hears trains or sirens and though it is somewhat endearing it is not so much at 2 a.m.
Rebel is a good boy and would be a great companion for someone who can continue working with him, has the time to keep him out of his crate more and help him with his trust issues and socialization. Must be American Belgian Malinois Rescue approved. Reasonable transport can be arranged.

|Jameson - ADOPTED|
Jameson is approximately 5 - 6 years old. Jameson will be ready for adoption very soon and is going to need a very understanding adopter that realizes how shy he is, and can continue to bring him out of his shell and show him that people can be trusted. Because of his timidness and also his heartworm treatment he has went through, basic training has been pushed to the side to just allow Jameson to relax and get comfortable. He will soon start on learning basic obedience, but we will be actively seeking his forever home as well :)
He is good with other dogs, and all people- though can be extremely shy and standoffish to some people until he is comfortable- but has never shown fear aggression.
|URGENT - need a foster home for Joey. He is currently located in a shelter in MD but we do not have a lot of time to find him a safe place. They estimate him to be between 1.5yrs - 3yrs old. He needs to go to a home without children and small animals.
Here is what the shelter has observed...He is aloof and independant at first but once he gets to know you, then he is sweet and leans on you. He is quiet in his cage. He is very ball motivated, trying to get them all in his mouth. He is super sweet with us.
If you can help, please contact me at email@example.com or Julie Bear at firstname.lastname@example.org
|Odie is still looking for his perfect home. He is approx. 6 months old. We have been fostering him for close to 2 months and he continues to gain strength and ability. He was born with a neurological issue but the neurologists at OSU while not able to give us a definite diagnosis felt that he was in general a healthy boy. Odie is clumsy and has stability issues on slippery floors but outdoors, he runs and plays ball with great enthusiasm. Odie would love to find a home that won't care that he can't be an agility super star! He is very friendly, gets along with all other dogs, is crate trained and just wants to please. He is being adopted through ABMR and fostered here in NE Oklahoma.

We wish that we could help them all but because of the number of dogs already waiting for foster homes, all prospective Malinois 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.
