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

Lucy -- This sweet, bouncy 50-pound female Malinois (vet feels she is under four years of age) was pulled from a shelter in Connecticut and needs a Mal experienced-foster home to teach her manners.  She is friendly with people, but gets mouthy when excited.  For this reason, a home with no children would be best, although she might be OK with dog-savvy teens.  It is not known whether she was a house or kennel dog, however she's a fast learner, loves attention and desperately wants to bond with someone.  She is more into food than toys but this might change.  It is unknown whether or not she is good with children, small animals or cats, but goes and stays willingly in a crate.  She seems to be reasonably good with other dogs but her dog skills are something of an unknown.  She did not show excessive interest in my male mal when we did several walk-bys at close quarters and was more interested in receiving treats.  However, she didn't seem to appreciate being sniffed by him, so a foster home without other dogs or a home with a large, well-mannered and easy going male might be safest.  When given love and attention, Lucy literally melts right into you and wants to please.  She is newly spayed, vetted, wormed, heartworm negative and now needs a foster home to help us evaluate her for her "forever home." Ideally, her foster parent should be someone who has the time to help her learn the skills she will need to be a good house dog and pet. She is a sweetheart and craves attention.  Lucy will think she has died and gone to heaven if given regular love, attention from someone who can help her learn how to live like a house dog and behave like a lady.

Must be an ABMR approved foster home (app available on our web site under "The Process"). Contact Debbie: or Julie for more information.

I need foster homes for two large, young males currently in Michigan. They are very sweet and loving but have had no training and were under weight when brought in. They are learning to like treats (apparently they were never even taught what those were) and are willing to work for them. They are crate trained. If you are interested, please contact Carol at MUST be an ABMR approved foster home.

Female Malinois appox 8 months when picked up, approx 10 months currently (maybe older but I don't think) currently utd on all shots, checked negative for heartworm, came in at 38 lbs and currently 45lbs and very healthy! She came in sensitive and afraid of everything and although is still sensitive to loud noises she is turned a 180, she isn't afraid of new people anymore, she's been taken to many environments and done great! Was unsure of water at first but still jumped around in it, has been to hardware stores, parks, businesses, stores, etc and is great on a leash while doing so, also good at ignoring people! She is starting to act more like a Mal with her derp moments, she is good with other dogs, also with kids (6 years old, 9 months old has been tested) (still waiting to test cats, or horses etc) she just now got to the point where I've earned trust and can start working her ob. Only has two sessions with her and she will sit, down, and recall (in German) she is GORGEOUS! and super social, very lovable and likes to cuddle up to you, pretty low toy drive but high food drive! Contact Penny:  
Juliet Juliet  
Juliet Juliet  
This is a girl who truly is looking for love and attention.  She's so hungry for it she will not eat her food if you're around, cause she wants pets and attention from you!  Our vet has placed her age between a year and 18 months old.  Juliet is a quiet girl when kenneled or crated, but loves to run and play outdoors!  She's quite the play instigator but can play a bit rough at times.  She is good with smaller dogs in the house, but play outdoors would need to be supervised at first.  Juliet is very fast and agile!  She loves to run and while she needs manners training, she is very sweet and learns VERY quickly.  She is also good with children, but would need to be supervised as she wants to jump up on people a lot and could knock over a child without meaning any harm. Medium size about 23 inches and probably 55 lbs. Contact Penny:

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.
