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
|Allayna Norres " beautiful caretaker"|
|Her name is Alayna Norres she goes by Norres. Her name means beautiful caretaker. She is 4 years old and birthday is April 14th. Her parents were both retired police dogs so she has good blood lines. She went thru 4 - h obedience training with my daughter she is a well mannered girl. She loves to play ball and fetch . She is crate trained and house trained. She is very energetic so requires a forever home that is very active and that will give her tons of exercise and attention. I believe that she would be a great dog for search and rescue or some kind of search dog . She gets along with other dogs and cats as long as they belong to her home . She did well at 4- h with the dogs . She has not ever shown any aggression with anyone or any animals. I have had her on a few search for lost animals for a couple friends of mine and she has led us right to them . Contact Marcia firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Must be an ABMR approved foster home.|
Nikki is a 5 year old, spayed Belgian malinois. She does have medical needs due to a seizure disorder and takes meds 2x a day. She is super affectionate and wants to just be with her human. Nikki is friendly with new people, kids and other dogs. She has some basic obedience training . She is house trained and crate trained but would prefer to be out with you. She will be happy to snuggle up with someone on those cold winter nights coming up. Nikki cannot go to a home with cats. Please contact Marcia, email@example.com for more information.
|2 young males|
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org MUST be an ABMR approved foster home.|
|7 year old female Malinois in St. Louis who needs a foster home. The two resident male shepherds in the house where "Jewels" is staying are picking on her, and her caretaker wants to find a better life for her. The dog is described as "loving and affectionate and very protective", and "not as comfortable with men." Kids are an unknown. "Jewels" is very ball driven and would play fetch 24/7. She has been through obedience and is (of course) described as "really smart." Must be an ABMR approved foster. Please contact me on Facebook or at email@example.com if you can help!|
Zena is a large female that wants to belong to her own person. She is a nice girl that is learning basic obedience. She is being trained in German.
Zena very much wants to please but parts of her hold back on obedience. This is gradually changing though, as she has been worked with positive and firm methods. It seems like somewhere in her life she had a rough start, and maybe some rough handling that makes her hold back a bit. She is learning to hold eye contact which anyone that owns a mal knows this is a natural for them. When first asking for a down she was very unsure about being corrected meaning she was almost bracing for a correction. Once she has found out that the correction isn't coming she has started to relax and is going into the down much quicker. She responds well to patient, positive training, which is clear in the expectations and reinforces when she gets it correctly.
Since I have not had her around children and don't know her background I would like to see her placed in a home without children. She would do best as the only dog. She needs a fair owner and not someone that jerks and yanks a dog into position. You need to be firm though but being firm doesn't mean you man handle.
She has been good with all the adults she has been introduced to. If you let her go up and meet them she has been great.
She doesn't like sudden movements coming at her. She does however recover very quickly. But with sudden movements, you can see that glint of bracing.
She does run and chase a ball but is not what I would call a ball crazy dog. She is learning to bring it back. When she first started she would bring it back but drop it within 4 to 5 feet of you.
She walks well on a leash and if she starts to pull a simple reminder and she comes right back into a nice walk.
Zena is a loving gal, looking for a person who will continue her training and will patiently reward her devotion with a matching devotion. More than anything, she wants someone with whom she can bond, and belong. Will you be the one to be Zena's heart human?
For more information about Zena, please contact: Janet
|Dutch is housebroken, crate trained, and rides very quiet in the car crated. Dutch seems to do well with submissive dogs but not other alpha, dominant dogs. Looking for an experienced foster home with no cats, tiny dogs or young children under 12. Dutch is big (93 pounds), very strong, extremely loving, has already had what seems like some pretty decent training (he'll hold a sit or down as long as you ask him to hold it). He is very "paw-oriented", meaning he likes to paw at you when he's with you. Dutch is a little chubby and will benefit greatly from some exercise. MUST be an ABMR approved foster home. Contact Melissa firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie email@example.com for more information. Currently located in TN, reasonable transport can be arranged.|
|Qualified foster homes desperately needed in Texas. Must become 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!|
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Buddy is about a year old, and a sweet submissive guy. He gets along good with other dogs, but can be a little shy. He is warming up but really needs a home of his own to really learn what its like to be a member of an inside home. Contact Penny, at email@example.com|

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.
