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.

Charlie 18 mo old spayed female - IN

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Charlie - 11KB
Malinois Foster Charlie - 16KB

Cautious with newcomers but not aggressive, once she knows they are ok she is friendly, yet perhaps a bit shy.

Charlie is a female Belgian Malinois of about 18 months. She has been spayed, chipped and I believe, is current with vetting.

She is playful, housebroken and crate trained but is only crated at night now. Left uncrated alone for several hours, she does well but much longer than that and anything within reach is vulnerable. I suspect that is due to boredom. She was being left in her crate all day because of that but then did considerable damage to the crate which might also have been boredom. She crates easily now and is quiet until let out in the morning.

She loves her bones to chew on and loves to play with balls but will destroy toys she can pull the stuffing out of. There is a small fenced backyard that is mostly swimming pool with a small area on one side where she does her business. She comes when called but I do not know how obedient she would be if there were a real distraction and she were off leash. I can tell you that when I tripped over a broken sidewalk and was injured, she did not try to run away.

She pulls a bit when leashed on a walk but when I stayed with her recently, she had improved some but will need more work on that issue. With other dogs she knows, she doesn't seem to be aggressive but neither is she really interacting/playing with them. She does harass the cat if given the opportunity but when crated for the night, she doesn't get excited or bark at it.

Having spent time with her, myself, when Jim was away, I can tell you she is affectionate and loving, tending to still be a bit mouthy when playing. She's just happy to be with you.

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

Motegi would be great for a first time Malinois owner. Playful and loving, but gentle.

Motegi is a lovely and very easy-going 7-yr old neutered male that would be suitable for a first-time Malinois owner or someone who loves the breed, but wants a more settled dog.

Mo is playful and active but settles down quietly in the house and is non-destructive. He has a soft, rich red coat and loves brushing and butt-scratches. He is very affectionate and loving, smart and eager to please.

He gets along with other dogs in his foster-pack with appropriate introductions and is gentle with children of all ages. He does not like the kitties though, and can be a bit reactive when he sees strange dogs on walks although he is easily re-directed.

He has some obedience training and his housebroken. He is crate trained but fine in the house, even left alone for a few hours. His foster said that Mo has fit in from day one like he has always been there!

Some lucky family is going to hit the jackpot with this boy!

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

Titan 17 mo old neutered male - MN

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Titan - 8KB
Malinois Foster Titan - 12KB

Active and affectionate and high drive! Cautious around strangers/new situations, but friendly, even with cats!

Titan is a 17-month old neutered male, about 48 lbs. He was surrendered to Rescue after his owner's could not take care of him. Titan was crated excessively the first year of his life with little socialization and came into rescue very thin and insecure, but has grown in leaps and bounds in his foster home—quite literally! Titan is a high drive, active and energetic boy that loves to run and jump and play. He is very fast and athletic and has that snappy way of moving with very good reward drive. He will settle in the house and bonds close with his people. He is very loving and affectionate and wants to be as close to you as he can. He loves to snuggle!

Titan is accepting of new people with proper introductions but can be nervous in new situations and will look to you for guidance although he is improving in this area and getting more confident. He has some basic obedience training and has a very good recall. Titan prefers a household without very young children and while he is good with other dogs he would do best in a family with a smaller pack and with non-dominant dogs. He has shown no interest in chasing the neighbor's cat, even when it comes over to visit! He is crate trained, but due to his past, a home without the need for excessive crating is preferred.

Titan's perfect home would be with someone patient and experienced with high-drive dogs that would continue to train and help him work though his insecurities, as well as provide a lot of activity and attention. In the right home, Titan has amazing potential!

He is not a candidate for work or service dog.
