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.

For more information about Angel, please contact: Marcia

Your Malinois Rescue adoption application must go to the coordinator for this Malinois Foster. Only this specific link to the application for this Malinois will automatically be processed and sent to Marcia, Angel's coordinator.

Dakota 1 yr old neutered male - Washington, DC

Malinois Foster Dakota - 23KB

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.

Hachi *pronounced Adje* senior neutered male - OH

Fee: $150
Malinois Foster Hachi *Adje* - 32KB

Hachi is a senior black Malinois but certainly acts like 3 or 4 and has no health problems other than being very strong, vigorous and accident prone even for his age.

He had some dental work, including some teeth removed about a year ago when he retired. He is a wonderful, stable boy but has a very strong drive to carry toys in his mouth and to seek and search busily when someone he perceives as his handler is nearby. He was retired to a friend's home but her age, previous shoulder surgery and presence of pet cats there made it necessary for him to find another home.

He is NOT good with cats but is respectful to other dogs that are respectful to him. He is UTD on all shots and heartworm preventative, neutered and crate trained. He will stay quietly in a crate for extended periods of time as long as he has the chance to spend some time moving around and being out with his people. He is a "busy" boy when out of the crate but has an incredibly wonderful "off switch" and can settle and be calm when under command or confined. He barks at gunshots (I live in the country and there are hunters year round) and at thunder/lightning if he is outside when he hears them but is quieter inside. He loves to chase, search for and find objects but hangs onto toys more than is convenient. I have found that substituting toys or distracting him (and firm "OUT...NO" command if he gets something truly inconvenient like my purse) and limiting his access to toys and ignoring him unless *I* initiate the play session keep him manageable. I suspect this is because of training he has had in his life to make him toy-ball obsessed. I have had him here for quite a while for thorough evaluation and just love his noble nature, beautiful carriage, stance, coat and overall appearance (he IS an attention getter wherever he is!) but have too many dogs in my rescue to give him the attention and one on one direction for part of his day which he needs as a Belgian. He has shown absolutely no human aggression at any time, in spite of many types of handling and even some injuries required vet visits. He has been mildly interested in all strangers who have visited my home. He is watchful but very friendly when they initiate petting, etc. with him. He will stay in a fenced yard here, is quiet and very easy to have around except for his penchant for holding toys in his mouth and his occasional grumbling toward other dogs that threaten his toys. He has been with many other dogs under supervision and is stable with them unless they show aggression to him. He is especially tolerant of my older Siberian husky girl who recently had a stroke.

Hachi prefers men but loves attention from women and young teenagers too. I have not observed him around young children and he is likely too strong to be safe around toddlers or very young children unless the parents were wise and knowledgeable about large dog handling. He walks well on a leash with attention and command or using a head halter and is receptive to both.

He responds best to firm commands and does exceptionally well with treat-motivated training. He learns quickly and loves to learn games and tricks and please his person but has not had a chance to do this consistently with all the dogs I have in my rescue. He enjoys cuddling on the couch (when I let him) or walking/searching/hiking in the woods and is up for all of that and more. He recently injured his toe, necessitating its amputation, but is healing well from that and showing again just how compliant and gentle and patient he can be, tolerating the plastic collar, crating and leash walking both here and at the vet's office.

Hachi would do best with someone, male or female, who has some experience in dog training and behaviorism and can give clear, firm direction to him. He is incredibly adaptable and loving but not fawning or demonstrative or pushy with people or dogs. He should be a fine addition to a home even where someone was not home all the time, provided he had a roomy crate or kennel to hang out in and some directed activity with his people on a regular basis.

Hachi requires a home with a fenced yard.

Roy 4-5 yr old neutered male - MD

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Roy - 11KB

Malinois Foster Roy - 17KB

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.

Sassy 4 yr old spayed female - NJ

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Sassy - 8KB Malinois Foster Sassy - 8KB
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

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?
