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.

Bijou is roughly 20 inches tall at the shoulder and her optimal weight is between 43 and 44 pounds.

Bijou is highly food motivated and has almost insane ball drive. She has zero interest in any kind of toy but a ball, but she LOVES her ball. When the ball gets away from her she turns into a nitro powered sprint racer and will go over, under, or through anything to get hold of it. She likes rubber balls best, but chews on them and squirts them out of her mouth.

Bijou loves to play fetch and brings the ball back almost every time. She is getting more consistent with "drop it," but she will definitely need some work on it. She likes when I throw the ball on the roof. She bounces along the house on her hind legs, listening to it and judging with great accuracy where it is going to come down.

She will need work to walk on a leash. Long leashes are not advisable as she will dash away and hit the end hard. I also use a small prong collar when I put her on a leash to prevent excessive pulling.

She does not have any food aggression and will allow you to pick up her bowl and touch her while eating. You can take things such as bones away from her without a fuss. She loves fruits and vegetables. She generally takes treats nicely and always sits for them. If she is hungry, she can be a little grabby initially, but is easily corrected.

Bijou LOVES to swim. I have taken her to a pond and she has a blast retrieving her ball. She swims like an otter. She has a kiddie pool at home that she uses all the time. I have had no opportunity to test her jumping off a pier, but with her ball drive and love of water I am sure she would fly off one.

When Bijou arrived she was scared to death of the TV, any kind of voices on the computer, the ceiling fans, the heat/central air coming on, wind chimes next door, and cars on the street. She has managed to conquer all of those fears and I have caught her watching TV recently. She is still nervous in new situations, but is very attentive and looks to me for guidance when she is unsure.

She is still wary of strangers, but has never growled or snapped, she is just nervous and cautious about approaching them. Bijou seems to be more comfortable with women than men, and likes kids 7 and up. Small children move to quickly and make her jumpy. Once she bonds with you, she can be a real love bug. She seems to be okay with dogs of all sizes but I haven't had a chance to thoroughly test her with small dogs. I wouldn't trust her with cats.

She is a leash chewer and has gone through several here, including a leather one. She is a good watch dog as well. Bijou is crate trained. She eats and sleeps in her crate and generally kennels up right away. She rarely sleeps through the night. She is terribly afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. I have had success with a thunder shirt and a covered crate. When it starts to storm she will often go to her crate on her own.

Bijou would be fine as a pack member or as an only dog. She has learned to respect my female enough that if her ball rolls over by her in the house, Bijou will wait for me to get it for her. She definitely needs to be in an active home and needs something to do physically and mentally. I believe she would do well at some kind of sport because she is so athletic and fearless where her ball is concerned. She will need an experienced, patient handler because she can have a stubborn streak, and needs someone to help her build her confidence. She should have a fenced yard because she won't be happy on a lead or leash.
