Miracles Do Happen - Samari The Malinois Miracle

Make a Difference Today!

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.

Angel is ready to start her new life.

She came into rescue in November with an old hip injury that required surgery. Thanks to some generous malinois folks she had her surgery in December. She is all healed and ready to play!

Angel is two years old and about 50 pounds. She loves her people, loves to snuggle and give lots of kisses. She is crate trained, knows sit, down, come and out. She likes to collect things and bring them back to her crate. She can be a little over reactive with strange dogs and people but is easily called off.

The only damage we have had is to dog beds and stuffy toys as is typical with mals.

She loves to play tug and will give up when asked. She will grab the biggest stick she can find and drag it around the yard.

Angel is not tolerant of other females so her ideal home would have a nice male dog, no young children, no cats and a fenced yard. She can't do agility but could do rally, nose work, or WagIt Games. Because she suffered for over a year with a damaged hip she will not be placed with an invisible fence so she avoids any more pain her life.

Dakota is a young, exuberant male. He is a busy boy, always looking for the next activity.

He loves practicing basic obedience commands and works well for a toy reward. He is less interested in food rewards. Dakota knows sit and let's go (loose leash walking). He is still working on heel, down and drop it. He doesn't reliably respond to here or come, but he does respond to his name. In fact, when you call his name he may try to leap into your arms! Luckily he is on the smaller side at 50lbs.

Dakota is being fostered in Washington, DC. He has been here for about three months and quickly became comfortable with the noise and crowds that come along with city living. Dakota is protective of the house and needs careful introductions to visitors, but is pretty social overall. He bonded quickly to his foster mom and can usually be found within arm's reach of her, but he will stay happily in his crate when she is at home or out of the house. He is housebroken, though he had a few accidents when he first arrived. He is not completely comfortable being handled and needs some desensitizing in that area. Dakota loves hiking and playing frisbee. In fact, he is a frisbee star in his neighborhood. People often stop on the sidewalk to watch him play.

Dakota will test limits, but respects boundaries that are clear and consistent. He sits and waits for a release command before eating and before barreling out of his crate. Dakota has shown aggression towards unknown dogs, but was always respectful of the elderly Beagle mix in his foster home. He is untested with cats and children. Though, like most young Malinois, he can be reactive, we think with an experienced owner, lots of exercise and mental stimulation, clear consistent boundaries, and careful introductions he would do fine with older children and Malinois savvy cats. Overall, Dakota is an energetic, smart, silly boy who wants to be a valued part of a pack. He would do well with an active, energetic owner who plans to keep him busy, give him a "job" and be his beloved leader.

Malory is a 1-2 year old female who originally came from Florida and is now located in NY

She is micro chipped and up-to-date on all shots. Malory loves every person she meets, and bonds quickly to her person/persons. She gets along with other dogs (we have 4) and is good with cats (we have 2). Malory walks great on a leash and knows sit, down, stay, speak and is easy to teach. She is a very easy going dog and only wants to please you. She is very easy to correct and seldom requires correction. She rarely does anything wrong and never touches or takes anything that isn't hers. She is a quiet dog and a joy to be with. She is perfect for the first time malinois owner as her drives are on the low side. Malory has a well-balanced, calm temperament.

Malory also loves to play ball, frisbee, go on hikes, swim and is just learning to dock dive. She is a great companion dog. She loves to cuddle on the couch or lay at your feet. She will follow you everywhere in the house and wants to be right by your side. Malory is excellent in the crate.

Due to the inability to test her with children, I am unable to report on her behavior. She is current on vaccinations, Heart worm negative and spayed.

A couch potato with a kick!

Roy is 4-5 year old male who originally came from Florida. He is microchipped and up-to-date on all shots. He was underweight and under socialized when he came into rescue, but you would never know that now. Roy loves every person he meets, and bonds quickly to you. He would do well in a home with a female dog, as he can be a little pushy with a male dog. Roy is learning his leash manners and would do well with an obedience class. He is a very easy going dog as long as he understands what you want from him. He only wants to please his person.

Roy loves to play ball or just cuddle on the couch with his person. He will follow you everywhere in the house and wants to be right by your side, wherever that is. Roy is an excellent boy in the crate and does not bark. I would imagine he would be okay loose in the house as well when you are not there, but since I have 4 other Malinois, we are unable to test that theory here! He is an outstanding boy, and if you put some time into him, he is only going to get better!

Due to the inability to test him with cats or small dogs, I am unable to report on his behavior with either. He does however get over stimulated with my neighbor's Border Collie running the fence line. He is quickly redirected. Roy is a gentle boy who loves to give kisses and is very gentle in taking treats from young children. We are working on jumping up when he first gets out of the kennel in the morning, but other than that, he is not a jumper.

Roy needs a home with a sturdy and tall fence, because of his size. He is rather large and a 4 foot fence would be no challenge at all for him, although I always recommend that no dog ever be outside without the watchful eye of its owner.

I would prefer Roy to be able to meet his potential owners and or house mates prior to placement, so Roy will not be placed in a home where this cannot happen. Roy is currently in the northern part of Maryland, about an hour from the Delaware line.

If you feel Roy is your gentle boy, please contact: Maryfrances.

Ruger 3-4 yr old neutered male - NJ

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Ruger - 17KB
Malinois Foster Ruger - 15KB
Malinois Foster Ruger - 17KB
Malinois Foster Ruger - 16KB

Found as a stray in NYC last winter, he is protective of the house and yard.

He is a sweet and gentle soul with his pack (1 adult, 2 large dogs, 3 cats), and when properly introduced to strangers does well, although he has not been tested with children. He will chase non dog savvy cats and if in pursuit of a squirrel can and will easily jump a 4 foot fence. He gets along with large and small dogs.

Ruger is estimated to be about 3-4 years old and is in great health and housebroken. Although he is large (26', 80#), he is a perfect gentleman in the house, and loves to have either a ball or squeaky toy with him at all times. He will respect a baby gate, unless you are on the other side, whereupon he will jump over it to be with you. While he wants to be near you, he has never shown any interest in climbing on the furniture. His head reaches right at counter height, so things left out are fair game to him! He loves his crate, but is wary of getting into the car. However, once in and tethered, he rides reasonably well. We are working on riding to fun places.

He is incredibly food and toy motivated, and has an extremely soft mouth. He knows sit, down, paw, wait (to come out of crate, eat, or go outside), and responds to his name. We are working on loose leash walking. While he does not "give" you can easily "take" whatever he has in his mouth. He loves to be outside, and will entertain himself for hours with a ball or soft toy. He will stand to be brushed, and you can easily cut his nails. He has done well with boarding at a kennel.

Ruger is a smart dog and needs to be in a home where more time can be spent with him. He would be fine as either an only dog or as part of a pack. However, due to his protection tendencies, he will not be placed in an inexperienced home. Appropriate outdoor containment will also be a factor in his new home. The adoptive home will need to continue his training regimen and closely monitor introductions to strangers. As with any Malinois, he will need consistent boundaries. Ruger has a lot of love to share and is ready to go to his new family.

Malinois Foster Sassy - 19KB

Sassy is a sweetheart of a dog. At 4 years young, this girl has got a lot of energy!

She loves every person she meets and just LOVES other dogs. Sassy bonds very quickly and strongly to her owner. She wants to be by your side at all times. She is starting to learn her manners, and she just aims to please. Her training will need to be continued as she can get a little mouthy when she gets excited. Sassy just loves spending time with the other foster dogs in her home and there is one dog in particular that she can spend hours wrestling with.

She is very good at sharing her toys and her bones. Sassy is crate trained and house trained. Sassy does not like being in her crate if she knows that someone is home. She will settle in her crate if all is quiet in the house.

Sassy would do best in home with another dog for companionship and with an owner that has a lot of time to spend with her. Best suited in a house with no cats and no toddlers. UTD on shots, Heartworm negative and spayed.

For more information about Sassy, please contact: Debbie

If you are looking for a smaller Malinois, look no further. Stella is the one for you.

She's a little shining star at 40 pounds, 20 inches at the wither. She's full of positive energy and just wants to please you and be loved.

Stella's from Miami so she loves the sun. When she arrived in January the poor girl was riddled with various parasites and infections. It took her months to get healthy. Her coat is now nice and soft. You can tell she's happy to be healthy by the way she prances around the house.

Stella had to be taught how to live in a home but she learned quickly. She loves her crate and dog beds. She sleeps in the bedroom at night in a crate with no problem. She is also crated when I leave the house and she is fine.. She respects baby gates put up to keep her from roaming all over the house.

Stella had no idea what toys were but now she loves them!! She loves to run around outside with a jolly ball. And don't say TUG toy out loud because she will come running. She loves a good game of tug! Stella does try to tear up soft toys so we have trained her to direct this "fun" to her nylabone chews. Beware of slippers not put away though!!

When you sit on the floor she loves to cuddle up against you for a good belly rub and loving. She will also sit nicely to be pet when you are sitting in a chair.

She LOVES my male Malinois Rocket and tries to be "just like him" all the time. She will sit nicely for a treat, right next to him and also lay down next to him on the dog bed. She loves him so much she will snuggle up to him in his wire crate. Though Rocket doesn't mind this, he thinks it's too crowded and will politely give 'his" crate to her. They play with each other inside and they never fight.

She has plenty of room to run around outside and will ignore the neighbors cows. She will bark at them once or twice and then give up! If she sees a rabbit, she will run towards it but not go crazy when it goes under the fence. She will even bark at the large turkey vultures but then gives up. Rolling on the grass is her favorite hobby. She will do this over and over again, then jump up and dart off in this crazy happy run! She is sometimes afraid to go out in the open space at night and will wait for her person to go outside with her.

Twice a week my husband takes her to work with him. She will sleep on her dog bed and take walks around the town with the cars and people passing by. She does wonderful. Each walk ends up at the bakery, where she goes inside and gets her gourmet dog bone treat while patrons admire her.

So why would we give up Stella? Because Stella needs to go to a home where there are less loud sounds to scare her. Our home is in the middle of a field, exposed to many sounds. We live next door to a farmer who is allowed to have hunters on his property 365 days a year. Stella does not like gun shots and when she hears them at night she gets very anxious. When there is a thunderstorm our home is very exposed with many windows and the thunder scares her. And the newest noises are the goose cannons! These cannons are now being used at two local wineries around the corner from us. When they go off she wants to go inside. The "boom" from these cannons scare away deer and geese and the agricultural zoning rights in our county allows these wineries to use them.

These sounds are out of our control and since it's a recent move to this house we can not move. Poor Stella can't live like this. It's not fair to her.

Stella is UTD on all her shots. She would do fine with another dog in the household since she loves the company of my male malinois.She would also be fine as an only dog where she could be with her person all the time. She's a wonderful candidate to be a loyal partner. All she wants to do is please you.

I do not know how she is around small children. I don't think she would mind cats since she doesn't seem to have a strong prey drive.

Susie is a senior love bug, abandoned in Miami Dade shelter when her owner died.

Susie had clearly been loved, but then found herself in the shelter. Her old owner had died and the son wanted nothing to do her. So there she sat, stressed and unhappy. She was very happy when finally on her Freedom Ride.

Just because she is a senior, don’t think she is a couch potato or ready to sleep all the time. She still has a LOT of energy, and is very athletic. She also gets bored easily and can’t be left alone in the yard, because if she is motivated, she will jump fences, even 6 foot privacy fences. But mostly she wants to stay with her people. She loves to be petted, groomed, and you can touch her all over " her mouth, feet, ears, whatever you need to see.

Susie is looking for a person to bond tightly with, someone to pour out this huge fountain of affection. Her ideal person would be home a lot, and let her hang out with them. She will settle well in the house (and of course is totally house broken), and stay close. She wants to please her person, but needs a strong leader as she will be pushy and take advantage of you if you don’t make sure she knows you are in charge. Like most mals, she does not respond well to harsh treatment, but firm, consistent and fair will make her work for you.

Susie is wonderful with all people, very friendly and outgoing. She may be too active for very small children, though she was very gentle with one foster’s toddler. Still, she is not always careful and can be pushy and might knock down small children or unstable older folk. Some solid obedience training might also help her be calm and learn to control her desire to just barge in to grab all the attention.

She is good on walks and ignores dogs she does not know. However, she would really be happiest as an only dog. She is very possessive of her person and can be snarky and eventually aggressive to other dogs in the household. She is in a home with another dog now, a very stable older male malinois, and her foster is able to control her, but she will test him every now and then. Again, this is only with other dogs in the household, not general dog aggression. She should not go to a home with cats as her prey drive is much too high.

Susie is a happy, loving gal who is happiest when she is with her person. She is looking for that special owner that will be the center of her world. Could that be you?
