See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



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.


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.

This handsome little mal is Diesel. He's as sweet as he looks and smart. Diesel is a 1 year old 50lb ball of joy.

He'd be best suited in an active home that wants to take him on walks, runs, bike-rides or hikes. Although we'd recommend him as an only pet he does fine around a dominant well socialized dog, he loves to play. We've never seen him around kids or cats, the shelter he came from said he didn't like them.

He's working on basic obedience but does better on-leash than off-leash. He's getting familiar with the following commands: no, leave-it, sit, lay-down, here, wait/stay, get-behind-me, heel, and release. Constantly working and refreshing these commands in small training sessions would be idea for him, his mind wonders. He does awesome on walks, runs and bike rides around the neighborhood; he doesn't bark or lunge at other dogs.

He's pretty shy around new environments and people but once he gets to know you all he wants is affection and belly rubs. When he finally warms up he's got the cutest smile and goofiest deer-looking run you've ever seen.

He's a typical mal in one sense, when he's bored he will wander around restlessly until he finds something to do. We found a strong indestructible bone is the best for giving him something to work on. He doesn't have a toy drive but LOVES food!

As with most Malinois, no cats, no tiny dogs, and recommend no children (maybe teenagers). Diesel is a special dog who will win your heart if given the chance she deserves.

We were told he likes to climb and jump fences but our 6ft wood fence has always kept him in; we haven't tried taking him to the dog park because of that. He's also little mouthy but is learning to focus that attention on toys.

What Diesel needs most is love and attention. We were told when he was in a shelter all he did was cower in a corner scared of everything. He needs a home that can focus on him and love him. His kennel, bed and toys all go with Diesel to his forever home complimentary of us. He deserves a sense of normalcy and consistency in precious little world.

History: Diesel was rescued from a shelter in Sioux City, IA. He was returned a month after being adopted by an elderly woman with two other dogs that couldn't handle him. Because he was labeled as returned with special needs he was scheduled to be euthanized. He was part of a large southern transport of dogs before being dropped off in Sioux City. His past before that is unknown. He came to us already potty trained, microchiped and knowing the sit and shake command.

Katia 7 yr old spayed female - IN

Fee: $250
Malinois Foster Katia - 39KB
Malinois Foster Katia - 47KB

If you are interested in a dog with drive AND an off switch, this girl may be just who you are looking for.

Katia (I call her Kati) is 7 years old, but doesn't act it when it is time to play. She has great ball drive and loves to play fetch, but she has that nice maturity about her so that when you are ready to relax on the couch she is all about it. She likes to stay in touching distance but doesn't try to be a lap dog. She is content to lay next to you while you absently stroke or scratch her. Katia is very affectionate and likes to give kisses. She enjoys kisses on her nose, and loves to have her face stroked. She does not like to be hugged though.

Katia is a very obedient girl, has excellent handler focus, and terrific recall. She knows Come, Sit, Down, Wait, Out (release the ball), Leave It, and "Back Off." I am able to stop and recall her easily out in the yard even when the fence fighter next door tries to engage her. She is always watching and listening to me, and even while engrossed in chewing on a Kong, she is watching for any movement on my part that might mean she is going to be petted. Out in the yard, she immediately comes at full speed when I call her. Her leash manners need work, and she can be mouthy and sometimes forgets that chewing on people is not an appropriate form of affection. For that reason, I would be reluctant to place her with children.

She is completely crate trained and goes right in and sits down if she anticipates that is where she should be, patiently waiting for a cookie, or the okay to come out. She has never torn up the bed that I have in her crate, and has never had an accident in the house or her crate. I have a 4 foot fence around part of my yard, and she has never attempted to test the fence, and I have on occasion had her outside the fence unleashed and she has never wandered off. To be fair though, there have been no bunnies taking off when I have had her out of the fence. I have found nothing that she is frightened of, but she does have an intense hatred of the vacuum cleaner, and doorbells on the TV will result in door charging, growling, and huge barks.

Katia needs someone who can give her plenty of exercise, mental stimulation, and lots of loving. She wants to please and takes verbal corrections and directions well, but she would not be a good dog for a first time malinois owner. She would be happiest as an only dog where she does not have to share her people. With careful introductions, an experienced handler could potentially integrate her with a non-dominant dog because she is not reactive, but if cornered or pushed, she will form a permanent "attitude" toward another dog.

Katia did have mammory tumors when she arrived and had a mastectomy to remove two teats at the time that she was spayed. The biopsy showed some low-grade carcinogenic cells, so she will need to be checked for lumps on an ongoing basis. That is the only health issues that we have identified. She does not show any signs of arthritis or other joint issues.

For more information about Katia, please contact her foster mom : Lisa

Mesa 4 yr old spayed female - IL

Mesa is an outgoing and energetic girl that loves to play both with my other dogs and toys by herself.

Mesa is an approximately 4 yr old spayed female. She came to us as a stray found in Illinois and while a bit on the thin side, she has quickly put the weight back on. Mesa is an outgoing and energetic girl that loves to play both with my other dogs and toys by herself. While she does get along with my two dogs, she needs to be introduced to other dogs slowly. She would be best with a house with no small dogs as she loves to wrestle and play hard. She has been exposed to my barn cats while on a leash, but wants to bark and lunge at them, so it would probably be best to not have house cats..

Mesa knows basic commands sit, down, shake and come, but needs a refresher course to improve on all. She is not overly food motivated, but we have found that she LOVES jerky treats and will do pretty much anything for them! We do crate her when we leave the house, and while it isn't a favorite of hers, she will bark at first and then quiet down. I do think with time, she could be just fine left loose. We have taken her to a few horse shows where she's been exposed to a number of different people, horses and dogs. She has been handled by older children and enjoyed the attention, but we haven't really had her around young kids.

Mesa bonds with her people and loves to be in the room with them. She wants to cuddle on the couch and sleep on the bed. She's a busy girl during the day, loves the freedom of going outside to run and play, but settles down in the evening and generally sleeps the night thru. She will bark at the doorbell and any new person that wants to come into the house, but after greeting the person, will leave them alone. She greets me each day when I get home from work with a toy in her mouth, grumbling and yipping with excitement, until I give her the greeting she feels is appropriate! She would love her very own person to have adventures with!
