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.

Katia 7 yr old spayed female - IN

Don't let this girls age or sugar lips fool you. She definitely does not act her age.

Katia's paperwork says that she is 7 years old, but I generally tell people that she is 7 years going on 7 months. This beautiful girl is a medium high drive girl with lots of energy, intense focus on her handler, and a real exhuberance for life. She loves to play fetch with any kind of ball, but won't play it with a Kong. Her favorite toy for fetch is a half demolished Jolly Ball. She might do well at nose work as she spends a lot of time with her nose to the ground when outside. With her handler focus, she would likely do well at obedience. She needs someone who can give her plenty of exercise, mental stimulation, and lots of loving. Katia is a nice size girl at 58 pounds. She is strong, stubborn, and super quick, both mentally and physically. She will need an experienced, consistent handler who is more stubborn than her. She wants to please and takes direction well, but she is not a dog for a first time mal owner.

She knows sit, down, wait, leave it, come, off, and "back off." Stay has been a complete failure so far. She has excellent recall and comes at warp speed when called. She can be called off. When the fence fighting small dog next door tries to get her going, she will turn and leave the fence when I tell her to "leave it" and "come." Her leash manners still leave something to be desired, but that is because physical limitations have kept me from really working on those. She sits nicely at feeding time, knowing that I won't put her bowl down until she does.

She is a chewer. The only toys she has not been able to destroy in record time are Kongs, bones, and Nylabones. Stuffies, ropes, and smaller Jolly Balls have a very short life expectancy with Katia. And I mean short as in minutes. A larger Jolly Ball will be handle-less in short order, but she seems to like them best that way. She cannot wear a collar with tags crated or in the house. She will squirm and twist around until she can get hold of the metal tags and will chew on them. I keep a flat collar on her in the house that has no tags. On the plus side, she does not tear up dog beds. She has had one in her crate from day one, and hasn't chewed it at all.

Katia is very food motivated. She always acts like she is hungry, regardless of how recently she has eaten. She takes verbal reprimands well, and if the tone of voice is sharp and stern, she does at least have the decency to look "guilty." She loves her people, and outside "her" home is very friendly to everyone she meets. She has done fine with visitors once she has calmed down. She bonds very quickly, but definitely will choose one person as her main love in life. She is protective of her people/person, and her property. Katia wants to be near her people all the time. She will whine if she is separated from you. She likes to be scratched and petted all the time, and is impatient when she isn't being loved. She will sit in front of you, gazing at you adoringly. She is crate trained, and will sometimes seek out her crate on her own. She does show some selective barrier aggression while crated. It is possible that putting her in a wire crate with better visibility as opposed to the airline crate I have her in may help that, but she was barrier aggressive at the kennel where I recently had to board her for a few days. Once she is calmed down and out of the crate she is very happy and friendly.

I believe that she needs to be an only dog as she does not get along with my males. She has a pretty high prey drive, so I would not trust her with cats, small dogs, or other small animals. I have not kid tested her, but I would not trust her with small children in particular. She is also mouthy. The mouthiness has improved since she got here, with a LOT of work, but it has been a battle trying to break this bad habit, and sometimes she forgets that mouthing is not an appropriate form of affection.

Katia had 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 mammory lumps on an ongoing basis, but she does like tummy rubs though, so that should not be hard to do.

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

Moxie is a fun-loving and high energy girl looking for an active home to call her own

Moxie is an active young girl about 1-2 years old looking for an experienced and active forever home where she can end the day cuddled up with her loved ones. She is about 65#s, spayed, heartworm negative and current on vaccines and crate trained. Moxie does well in the house, loves toys but will destoy stuffed toys; Kongs, bones, nylabones and the tuffy's toys are her favorites.

She knows basic commands Sit, down, shake, wait, kennel, and we are working on recall/come. Moxie is a sweetheart, easy going, eager to learn, and loves meeting new people.

Moxie loves to play with other dogs when properly introduced, but would do best with a male or a non-alpha female. She has had some exposure to cats; she shows some interest so it is recommended to have no cats in the house. Moxie has also been around a couple small dogs; she does okay but can play rough so it would be best if she was around larger dogs. Moxie has been exposed to children with proper introductions, and is sweet but can be a little jumpy and too high energy for young children.

For more information about Moxie, please contact: Marcia
