See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



No rescues currently ready for adoption in the Northeast area. Please visit one of the other regions, see listings in the left column, to find an appropriate Malinois and file an application.


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.

Bruce Wayne was found as a stray, very emaciated and in poor condition.

He has come a long way and is now a handsome young man and is super sweet. He wants nothing more than to please his person and is very food motivated so is a lot of fun to train. He is like a sponge and learns new behaviors quickly.

He is good in his crate and knows basic obedience. He will wait at the door to go out until you tell him 'okay'.

'Batman' is a typical young Malinois and can be a little rambunctious when meeting new people but will settle down when told. He is learning to take treats gently as he is also rambunctious when taking food out of your hand. Due to his energetic adolescent personality, he is not the best match for a family with young children.

He is good with the other dogs in the foster home and loves to wrestle and play. He has high prey drive so will not be placed in a home with cats or small animals.

Batman is energetic and athletic, although a little uncoordinated/clumsy but since arriving at the foster home has started to learn to use his long legs more effectively. He will need someone that is active and able to keep his mind and body busy.

Hope is 'little miss personality'. She is small for a Malinois and cute as a button.

She is: * Athletic - she will 'fly' for balls and frisbees * Musically inclined - picked up playing the electronic keyboard in no time * Skilled in lawn and garden maintenance - in the process of mastering the zero turn lawn tractor and scoping out the best options for bedding mulch * Assistant to the chef (will taste test recipes) - there is a short clip of her practicing this in the movie * Loves to shop - her foster mom discovered Hope had figured out her Amazon password and was on her computer ordering all kinds of toys, outfits, and treats. * Is a fashion plate - check out the outfits she models in the video * And LOVES to talk to, and play with, her toys. * She will also entertain the hired building contractors, sharing coffee breaks with them.

Her foster mom has taken her to obedience classes and out and about to various places for socialization and it has really helped to build her confidence. Her new family will need to continue to work with her and need to be well versed in the ways of Malinois as this little girl is very smart and will attempt to use her cuteness to manipulate humans to get her way.

She prefers human contact over canine. She is not aggressive with other dogs but her foster mom thinks she would be happiest in a home as the only dog. She would ignore the other dogs in her obedience class unless they barked in her face (she didn't like that at all). She is not used to being around small children.

She does excellent with her house training and goes to the door when she has to go potty. She loves to sleep in her family's bed but is fine in a crate. She loves to sleep in and will become limp and unbudgable like a 10,000 pound rock when you try to move her when she sleeping in bed. It's hard to believe this little thing could be that difficult to move. She just lays there and looks at you like 'No, I don't want to get up yet'. Her foster mom thinks that Hope's idea of a perfect day would be to lay in bed, watch TV and have people wait on her. But when Hope gets up she will go and follow her everywhere.

She enjoys being groomed and dressing up in clothes. Hope is very sweet with such a cute personality that has blossomed so beautifully under the nurturing loving care of her foster mom. She would do best in a home as an only dog where her family will make her part of their daily activities.

She possesses many talents as you will observe when you watch her movie.

Keeyo is seeking an active family home where he is able to be included in as much of family life as possible.

He is and has been social with people, and is totally content snuggling up on the couch for a movie. He is still learning some proper rules of play but is making great progress. He is house trained and understands home rules under supervision.

When left alone his past family reported he would get into trouble and has had bad experiences with crate training previously, so his foster family has been working on re-training him to a kennel. This is a slow and steady work in progress but he has been making good progress.

Keeyo is such a sweet boy and is wishing for a family of his own. He is still very young and full of potential! He would do best as the only dog but his foster family is working on some Dog socialization with him in hopes to help him become more confident and social around them.

Due to his intense drive, he will not be placed in a home with young children. If you'd like to add this handsome, happy boy to your family, please fill out the adoption application.

He is extremely smart and eager to learn and loves to play. Here is a video of him playing with his favorite toys:

Xena 1 yr old spayed female - NH

Xena is a unicorn. This beautiful, bright-eyed girl is confident, fun loving, and affectionate.

Her foster describes her as, "The most stable, energetic, cuddly malinois I've ever encountered." Xena is curious about her world, and doesn't startle easily. Loud noises? Strangers? Nail trimming? No problem. This girl takes it in stride.

Xena's hobbies are shopping, playing ball, and getting all the snuggles. She likes going to the hardware store, the pet store, and BassPro shop, and she is happy to strut her stuff on the local trails as well. She is polite with new dogs, and the life of the party at home. She is teaching her foster family dogs how to play. She can even get them out of their sleepy spots for a zoom session!

Xena's first passion in life is the ball, ball, ball. Because Xena loves her ball and would do anything for it, she is easily motivated. She knows sit, out (drop the ball), heeling on leash, and is learning down, bed, and post (go in her crate.) She is learning impulse control and is very eager to please.

Xena has the biggest, goofiest smile. She has won the hearts of her foster family with her enthusiasm and zest for life. When she is especially excited, Xena's tongue quivers like a hummingbird's wings. It's adorable.

Xena does well with ten year old children. She is friendly, but because she is "over the top energetic and playful", her foster thinks that she is too bouncy to be safe with young children. She has mild interest in cats, but her foster thinks that she would do well with a dog-savvy cat and an observant owner.

Xena is a velcro dog who wants to be with you. Her foster says that Xena "will instantly fall in love with her people!" She really likes it when you invite her onto the couch for snuggles. When you're making dinner, she'll lie down behind you in the kitchen. She likes to ride in the car with you, but if you have to leave her at home, she can nap until you get back.

Xena's foster says that she was found as a stray. He suspects she was from a family home that just didn't know what to do with all her energy. She was familiar with toys and is gregarious. She was a little overweight, but now she looks good at 47 pounds.

There is no aggression in her personality. Her only faults? She will occasionally resource guard a toy, and at some point in her past, she lost a tiny bit of her tail. Because of Xena's high drive and energy level, she is recommended for a malinois experienced home. She would do best in an active or sport home. She does fine on short hikes. Her gait is slightly crooked, so she isn't ever going to be a marathon runner. Because she is so ball motivated, her foster thinks she would be great at Flyball or dock diving.

Xena's foster says that she is "literally the perfect malinois." If your home needs some turbo charged love, get in touch with Xena's coordinator at jen.pursley@gmail.com. Xena has zip and sparkle for you!
