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.

Arty has very expressive eyes, and watches me carefully, just waiting for me to pay attention to him.

Artois "Arty" is a loving, handsome, inquisitive, low to medium drive guy. He is small, approximately 23 inches and 50 pounds. He is learns quickly and picks up on things from other dogs by watching. He is a funny guy who decides that certain toys belong in certain rooms and if I move them he will retrieve them and move them back to the "right" room. He studies things at all levels, even above his head. When he is really content, he kind of purrs.

He has good house manners; he doesn't counter surf or challenge baby gates. He is crate trained and really does like his crate. If I am boring him and he isn't in the mood to kill a stuffed animal, he will go off to his crate and nap. He sleeps in his crate at night, and generally goes right in when I say "bedtime," and sleeps quietly all night. He likes to go for car rides and will hop right in and sit or lay down very nicely. He has never challenged the fence, and I have 4 foot chain link in the front. He has shown no food aggression. All the dogs eat in the same small room, separated by a few feet. I can hand feed him and he is very gentle. He will sit and take treats very nicely.

The sound of soda cans or bottles being opened startle Arty. He jumps away, and watches carefully over his shoulder in case he thinks he should flee. He was very intimidated when I had a yardstick and was trying to measure him. There have been no thunderstorms, but I suspect that they will bother him. Gunshots in the distance scared him and he started jumping up on the patio door wanting inside. He doesn't run for his life from a vacuum cleaner, but he also doesn't try to attack it.

Arty is a pretty low drive guy. He will play ball for a short time, and will bring the ball back, but he loses interest after a few throws. He does like to tug, and will jump up to get a toy from your hand. I don't think he has the drive to be a "sport" dog. He does want to please, and would probably do well at something like rally obedience. He has excellent focus on his handler and will watch me, just waiting for me to pay attention to him or to do something "interesting." I think he would also be just as happy going for car rides and walks with his person/people. He definitely has the guard dog alerting thing down, but is otherwise pretty quiet and would probably love going to work with his new person.

When I take him out in public, he does equally well with adults and children. He will go up to anyone who he thinks will pet him. He seems to gravitate to men and will approach the man in a group of people before the woman or children. Typical of a mal, he leans and bumps, so he might knock a small child over.

Arty had some obedience training prior to coming into rescue. He knows, "sit", "down", "stay", "no", and "come". Arty knows "leave it" and "wait" as well. He does not bolt when the car door is opened. I tell him "wait" and he just sits or stands there until I tell him "okay." He has very good recall.

Arty LOVES to be rubbed down with a towel when he comes inside, and being snuggled in a blanket on my bed. Arty is a stuffed animal killer and if not watched carefully, will sometimes swallow the stuffings if it is easier than spitting them out. He is also a chewer. He likes to chew bones, slippers, blankets, and dirty laundry. He will jump up on the bed and snuggle, and allow an arm over him, but not wrapped around him. Once he knows you, has no problem with kisses on his nose, but he doesn't like hugs. Arty has had no accidents in his crate or the house since he got here. He was good about getting his nails trimmed at the vet. He has good manners with other dogs, not too pushy, and would do fine with other dogs. He tries to play with my senior female, but he wants to be too rough and she doesn't like it, but he keeps trying. He generally won't try to play with my male who was snotty with Arty the first couple days he was here.

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.

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.
