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.

Ice 6 yr old spayed female - WI

Ice is about 55lbs and a complete love bug who likes to snuggle and be with her people.

She is looking for a best friend and is extremely loyal. She is not extremely drive, but she does love to tug on her stuffed animals with you and she has a very good "out" or "release". She also loves for you to chase her around and try to get her toys and wrestle around with her on the ground. She carries her Kong just about everywhere she goes.

She is a very well-mannered inside dog and absolutely fits in to whatever schedule we have going on. She is very people friendly, but will alert by barking if someone knocks on the door or when a vehicle pulls up. Once we are aware of the guests, she has been very happy to meet new people. We have not had any children visit since Ice has been living with us, but I feel as if she would be very accepting of them, with guidance and introductions.

She LOVES her crate and spends a lot of time in it even when the door is open. She is a toy hog and will go through the toy box and put them all in her crate or hide them from our resident dog. She does not get along with other females, including her foster's personal dog. However, she is wonderful with the cat and she got along well with her foster's neighbor's male. She is very selective with her canine friends, so dog parks and other places of unstructured, off-leash dog activity are not for her.

Ice would be delighted to be an only dog, but with proper training and introductions, can do alright with other non-pushy dogs who will let her get plenty of attention from her people. Being people focused, not canine focused, she does not necessarily share people and toys well with other dogs, so interactions will need to be monitored and managed to avoid conflicts, particularly in the beginning. She was tried in one home that also did not work out due to her dislike for the resident male adolescent dog.

She is very intelligent and knows her basic commands such as sit, down, stay, come, shake (with either paw), crate, kennel, load (car), down (off furniture), etc... She understands basic conversational commands such as where's your ball? Are you ready to go? Hurry! The famous "Ah-Ah-Ah!" (as in "don't you stick your nose on the counter"). Since we reside on a large farm she has not been taught to walk on a loose leash, but her off leash skills are great.

Ideally, we would love to see Ice go to a home with some acreage so that she has the freedom to run and play. She loves chasing squirrels up the nearest tree then bark at them. She minds off leash and will happily go to her outside kennel on command or come inside when called. She doesn't run off other than the occasional squirrel chase or deer sighting that distracts her, but stays in range of the farm, and home.

She is current on h/w preventative, flea meds, all shots and she is in good health overall. She has an old injury to her right front leg that gets a tad arthritic in the cold or if she is crated for several hours at a time.

Kiana would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day.

Kiana was brought into rescue as stray from animal control. She was suffering from a broken pelvis (most likely hit by a car) which ABMR treated through surgery. She quickly rebounded from the surgery. It never once slowed her down!

In her foster home she lives with other dogs and really enjoys the company of other dogs who are low key are not in her face or jumping on her. With the right dog she comes out of her shell and is very playful. When meeting new people, she is shy but warms up quickly with treats and does do better with woman. Once Kiana gets to know you, she will be the typical "velco" dog by your side. Due to her nervous behavior around new people and sudden movements she would do best in a home without children or those who are older and respectful/knowledge of dogs.

Kiana settles down nicely in the house and loves to be near her people, and will find any comfy place to sleep. Before coming to her current foster home she spent some time at a boarding kennel where she would pace and exhibit other signs of anxiety when kenneled; but at her foster home she will willing go into a crate to sleep or chew on a bone and has done ok being crated when left. She will not do well in a home where she is being crated over 6 hours a day.

She would love a home where she could be the center of attention or be the buddy of a lower key doggie companion. NO CATS! She needs to do some activity every day. She doesn't require an extensive workout everyday but she definitely needs a family that wants to do something with her every day. Whether it be nosework, tracking or some obedience training or just a decent length walk around the neighborhood. In the evenings she likes to lounge on her doggie bed in the living room. She loves kongs, tennis balls and frozen bones. She will entertain herself by throwing them around and chasing them.

We would prefer to place Kiana without a long distance transport. It would be best to have a meet and greet with the adoptive home prior to placement.

Kona 3 yr old neutered male - WI

Kona is a gorgeous three year old neutered male looking for his forever home. He is a big boy about 65 pounds.

He loves to play fetch and loves practicing obedience. He also has had some agility training and seems to love the weaves of all things! He loves toys of all kinds as well, especially squeaky ones and loves to play tug. He is great on walks and has not reacted to the many ducks and geese we have at a local park or kids riding by on bikes or skateboards. He plays hard but once in the house he settles well. He is friendly but a bit aloof on meeting strangers, but warms up quickly if a treat or a toy appears. He has attended a local doggie day care and does well there. He is a perfect gentleman in the house and we feel comfortable leaving him have the run of the house while we are not there. He is very affectionate with both of us and follows me all over the house when we are all at home.

We have not had the opportunity to see him interact with kids, so I would recommend he be placed only in a home with no children. He is very prey driven as well, so no cats either. Kona must have had some bad experiences with crates as he does not like them. We have worked on this a lot with him, starting with feeding him in crates. He will now go into a crate in our house (wire or mesh, but no airline crates) but still panics when the door is closed. The issue is the same for crates in the car. He does not like getting in the crate in my car, but once in he settles and rides quietly as long as the crate is covered as he will spin and get agitated if it is not. He still needs a lot of work in this area.

Kona has so much potential and will be a very loyal and loving family member for someone with experience and who is willing to work with him.
