NORTH CENTRAL RESCUES

IL, IN, IA, MI, MN, NE, ND, SD, OH, WI


These Rescues are currently available in the Northeast area of the country. If you are interested in adopting one of the Malinois profiled in these pages contact the foster home listed in the profile.

A NOTE TO POLICE OFFICERS, SAR GROUPS
AND OTHERS LOOKING FOR WORKING MALINOIS:

Many police officers/trainers/SAR groups approach Malinois rescue looking for young dogs to train. Most of our rescued dogs are not suitable for these types of jobs. Some of our rescued Malinois are actually dogs that have been rejected by police departments due to their inability to do the job. While we are not opposed to adopting dogs out as working dogs, we adopt only to individuals, never to organizations or police departments. Most of our rescued Malinois have had difficult beginnings in life. The majority will make fantastic family pets, but most of them do not have the temperament needed to work day after day with a police officer or in search and rescue. All dogs adopted through Malinois rescue will be spayed or neutered prior to placement.




Axel 3 yr old neutered male - IN

Fee: $275

Malinois Foster Axel - 14KB

Axel wants to be a close companion in a home with other pets. He even gets along with dog savvy cats!

Axel is the epitome of the Malinois Velcro dog! He is happiest sitting right next to you, with his nose under your arm, protecting you from the world. He is a drop dead gorgeous dude with this long dark nose and piercing dark eyes! You just cannot help but fall in love with him (I did).

Axel is about 3 years old, tall and lean, about 60 lbs. He is UTD on all vaccinations, and is on Heart Guard.

He is very smart and acclimates very fast to a new schedule. He is completely housebroken. He gets along well with cats and small dogs. He tries to boss the dogs around by growling/ moaning but nothing that can't be controlled. I do not have any alpha type dogs so not sure on how he would act in that situation. I've had numerous dogs come visit and he gets along OK after meeting them.

When he came he was very protective of me and would low growl/moan at my husband when he approached me, but we worked on that and he is much better. With a new family though, you might need to be aware of this tendency and be prepared to work with him again. He also would nip at visitors but again, that is not an issue now. He loves the ladies!! He loves my husband and goes for attention when I am busy!! LOL

He has his bed that he loves! After playing ball outside he goes and curls up on it by my feet. (Unless I let him sit with me!). He really is a love bug!! He is allowed on our couch and loves to snuggle. At night he comes and gives me a kiss good night (really) and then goes to his bed for the night. During the day he is in his crate. He doesn't like it but is getting better at it. I don't believe he needs a crate, I think he personally could be trusted in the house, but I crate all my dogs just to be on the safe side.

He does like to go ride in the truck. He does get a little nervous when I go into the store but I am working on making short trips inside. He loves the pet stores and enjoys all the attention he gets!!

He loves his balls and will play ball with you, bringing it back to you every time!

He does have a bump on the bone of his left rear leg. We have had that x-rayed, along with his hips. The great news is that it looks like the bone is a very old injury, probably from puppyhood, but it has healed well and will cause him no problems. He has no arthritis and his hips are also great! He still doesn't really show aptitude for agility, but should be up for just about anything else you want to do.

He has had training, he sits, down, stay, waits for his food. He does not leave my side. I have never been worried that he would run off.

Axel's ideal home would be one that has other pets and more than one person. He needs to be part of a pack so he doesn't go back to being protective.

Check out the video of him playing ball:

Chianna 4 yr old spayed female - IL

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Chianna - 17KB
Malinois Foster Chianna - 17KB
Malinois Foster Chianna - 21KB

Chianna -- high energy and great focus!

You may remember Chianna from last fall -- she turned up at Chicago Animal Control with a broken pelvis. Thanks to the generosity of the Malinois Rescue community, we were able to have her injury surgically repaired. After several months of rest, she's now ready to make up for lost time! She is one tough girl. Even with a broken pelvis, she was gentle when handled. And the pictures above were taken when it was 5 degrees outside, and Chianna didn't even shiver.

Chianna has enjoyed every class she's tried with her foster mom, who says that Chianna's focus is even better than the foster's own "heart" dog. Chianna especially loves nose work, where she's even more motivated by the scent than by the possibility of a treat.

She is a high-energy girl, and will need an active home. You can get an idea of her energy in this video (taken in warmer times). Unfortunately, Chianna hasn't gotten along well with children, and will be better suited to an all-adult home. She gets along wonderfully with the other dogs in her foster home.

Dargo 2 yr old neutered male - IL

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Dargo - 12KB
Malinois Foster Dargo - 10KB
Malinois Foster Dargo - 28KB

Dargo is a gorgeous boy and is very energetic. He'll chase that bowl, in his mouth, all day if you have the energy to throw it!

Dargo sometimes doesn't know his size with other dogs... he is still learning proper play manners. He is social but just sometimes is over the top. Dargo loves the water, toys, playing fetch and anything that requires fun! He is just a giant goof ball. He really enjoys his trail walks!

We recommend a home with no small children and no cats. Dargo is in supervised daycare with other dogs, and his foster home will be starting an obedience class with him soon.

For more information about Dargo, please contact: Mike

Laci 10 yr old spayed female - IN

Fee: $100
Malinois Foster Laci - 22KB
Malinois Foster Laci - 11KB
Malinois Foster Laci - 17KB

Laci is a big sweetheart who desires nothing more than to be touched by her humans.

She came to us shortly after her 10th birthday which was in August 2014. After a life of having several litters of puppies, she has now been spayed learned very quickly how to be a house dog. Laci quickly gained 15+ pounds and doesn't refuse any food, however most of her teeth are worn down so she has to have her kibble softened with a little water before she eats. She is able to enjoy soft "dental" type chew sticks, and soft treats, too. Her left front leg was broken long ago by all appearances, and Laci is unable to jump or run too fast, though she has moments where she races around the yard with her foster dogs, sometimes taking a few limping steps. She does not appear to be in any pain during her daily activies.

Laci is learning the joys of taking walks outside, and prefers to be outside in the dark vs the daylight, but is slowly coming around and enjoying walks in the woods during the day. She loves children, and has never shown aggression towards them. She enjoys putting her front feet up on her human's lap when they sit down to watch tv, hoping to be brought up on the couch to snuggle, and she shows respect for the dinner table, staying in another room and not begging for food (though she would happily take anything offered!).

Laci gets along well with other dogs, and will only snark back if a dog acts aggressive to her. She believes she is going to be accepted everywhere, and will sometimes push other dogs out of the way if she thinks a human is going to pet her, so some dogs may not appreciate her boldness. In the same vein, Laci does not show any concern if another dog pushes her out of the way (as long as it's not growling and aggressive), and does not protect a personal space bubble of her own. She has not shown any aggression towards our chickens, though has not been tested with cats yet. She has met small dogs and has been fine with them. Laci rarely barks, but will make talking noises to get your attention if she needs to go outside to do her business.

Laci's great joy is destroying soft fuzzy toys! She will also rip up her dog bed, but has never bothered anything that is her human's, such as blankets or clothing. If something is on the floor or near her bed, she may think it's hers, especially if it's soft, like a toy, towel, or blanket, and may try it out. Her teeth prove that she has enjoyed a lifetime of chewing.

Will you please give Laci the loving attention she craves?

Nikki is super affectionate and wants to just be with her human.

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.

Nikki is friendly with new people, kids and other dogs. She cannot go to a home with cats.

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.

Oliver approx 4 yr old neutered male - IL

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Oliver - 26KB
Malinois Foster Oliver - 25KB
Malinois Foster Oliver - 35KB

Oliver - a big, loving boy who is good with cats!

Oliver is big (about 75 pound) sweetheart of a dog with an easy, puppy-like temperament. After being raised in a loving home, Oliver was surrendered with his brother to a shelter when his owner could no longer care for him due to a series of negative life changes. He's a good dog looking for a second chance with a new person or family to love him. Oliver currently lives with two other dogs and a cat and gets along well with them. He knows some commands and will need additional training for obedience and some work in helping him overcome his shyness with strangers. Oliver is an affectionate dog who will literally jump for joy when you come home. Unfortunately, we have not been able to test Oliver with children.

Oliver is housetrained, and while he doesn't seem to have been formally trained, he learns very quickly and already has an excellent recall. Oliver is not crate-trained -- it looks like he was never crated in his past life, and he gets anxious and will break out of crates. While he needs a fenced yard (squirrels are just too, too tempting), Oliver respects fences and is not an escape artist.

Compared to the other two Malinois in his foster home, Oliver is very quiet. He won't automatically bark when the other dogs bark. And again, compared to the other two dogs, Oliver is a couch potato who needs exercise primarily for his physical health. Oliver likes to play with a ball; he likes to play fetch. He's learning to play with other toys, although, like most Mals, he's a toy-destruction machine. Oliver has been good with other dogs at the dog park; he walks away from dogs he doesn't like.

Like most dogs who come through Malinois Rescue, Oliver is a work in progress. He is shy with (but not aggressive toward) people he doesn't know. At the dog park, he'd approach people out of curiosity, then run away if they tried to pet him. Oliver is food motivated, and positive reinforcement will be a big help with his shyness. Formal obedience training will also do wonders to bolster his confidence.

Paul is a high energy guy who loves to learn. Would you be his teammate?

Hi, my name is Paul and aren't I a handsome fellow? When I was abandoned at Miami Dade shelter (boy am I glad to be out of there!) I was estimated to be about 5 years old.

I am a high energy kind of guy, so I need an active family who will train me. That is not too hard as I am very treat motivated. Basically I just LOVE to eat. I am not one of those finicky guys you hear about, no sir! I know a good meal when I see one! You can use my love for food to your advantage!

I like to go on walks, but I can pull a bit. My fosters say I am easily corrected I just get excited. I do well meeting other dogs when we are introduced properly. I even go to doggy day care and play with a whole bunch of dogs. One little quirk you need to know - I do like to engage in the sport of fence fighting, so you need to be aware of that. But even after a good round of that, if I am properly introduced to the dog on the other side, I am fine.

I have not been around small dogs or cats, so a home without them would probably be safest. But if you have a critter, we can see if I can get tested with a few. I have been around chickens and have not been interested in chasing them at all.

When I get REALLY excited, I can get mouthy (I AM a Malinois after all). I will grab your arm and my fosters say it is like I am saying "don't leave me!" My fosters have been working with me on that and I imagine my forever home will need to also. I am trying, but, again, when I get excited, I can't quite help myself.

Of COURSE I am house broken. In fact, I can "hold it" a VERY long time. Even though my foster parents typically crate when they leave us pups alone in the house, I can be trusted on my own. So if you don't want to crate, that is fine, but if you do, I am good with that too. Whatever works for you!

I also want to plug my best buddy, Toby. He is that fun looking guy in the picture with me. He is a foster too, and if you want two dogs, well, I would like nothing better than to bring him with me. Like me, he is neutered, up to date on shots, been on heartworm and flea preventative. Obviously, he is not a mal. In fact we aren't sure what he is. My fosters (aren't they great?) just have a soft heart and took him in because he was in danger like me. But if you want two, my fosters say I can bring him along for FREE two for one! I understand if I can't bring him, and it is not like we are bonded, but I promised my buddy I would ask. If you can't take two, but know someone that might like a fun loving and easy going guy, (and not a high intensity Mal) could you tell them about Toby please?

My ideal home would be a couple with some Malinois experience who really want to bond with their dog, because bonding is what I do best! I want someone who wants to have fun and play and learn how to be the best team. There is so much I have still to learn and I want to do that with my forever people!

Again, I am a healthy, neutered male, up to date on all vaccinations, and have been on heartworm and flea prevention. I can be packed and ready to be YOUR dog in a heartbeat. Just say the word.

Riggs 2-3 yr old neutered male - MI

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Riggs - 19KB
Malinois Foster Riggs - 30KB

Riggs acts like a big, exuberant puppy!

Riggs is a large, exuberant, handsome male, estimated to be between 2 and 3 years old. He acts like a big puppy. He is fawn colored with a dark mask. He is approximately 26" at the withers and weighs 72 lbs and is starting to fill out nicely since coming into rescue.

Riggs appears to have had no training prior to coming into rescue. He wants nothing more than to please his foster mom and will work for food but is even more motivated by praise.

In addition to having no training, it seems that Riggs did not get a lot of attention or love. He would quickly hit the deck if someone moved suddenly and would crawl on his stomach. His foster mom has spent a lot of time with him, establishing a relationship and showing him how to be a dog. It is amazing to watch the transformation these rescues go through. He went from not connecting at all to being very bonded to his foster mom and gushing with joy whenever he sees her.

He is learning manners basic obedience (heel, sit) and his default behavior is down. His energy level is not over the top and does not appear to have extremely high prey drive. The foster mom has horses, guinea fowl, chickens, and a donkey and he is interested but has shown no drive or aggression. He will chase a ball but then doesn't know what to do with it.

Riggs is a very special little boy and basically a blank canvas with enormous potential.

He is very sweet and affectionate and deserves a home where he will get lots of attention with someone who can provide structure and consistency and where his people have an interest in getting involved in activities that leverage his keen intelligence and desire to please.

For more information about Riggs, please contact: Carol.
