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.

Gidget – A one year old Rhapsody in Blue

Gidget is a spunky blue fireball who needs a strong leader but also one with patience. She did not have a good start, being isolated in a crate for a long time by her breeder, before he dumped her at a shelter. She was understandably slow to warm up, and had a long way to go to trust people or to learn how to play. But with the patience of her foster Moms and the help of her foster siblings, she has begun to claim the awesome dog she is.

In some ways, Gidget is a study in contrasts. Because she was not exposed to much as a pup, she is fearful of all the new things that she is encountering now in her foster home. She stands back, timid and reserved at first, and lacks confidence and trust in people. But with continued exposure she relaxes and begins to get curious. Once she feels comfortable, she loves to play, run and run and run – with energy to spare. She is quite agile and very fast, and if one of her sisters or foster siblings gets in the way of her zoomies, she just jumps over them. Her foster mom also says she is part mountain goat, as she loves to climb on things, and yes, that includes your furniture. She is going to be on the small size – but don't tell her! In her mind she is about 10 feet tall. Her ideal owner will understand that she thinks and is considering all the angles. You will need to earn her respect as she will need to earn yours. But when she bonds, it is solid and she wants to please. She will need to learn that you have her back, and are not going to put her in danger, that she can trust you to be there for her.

If you believe you have the patience and skill to bring out the best in Gidget, we believe she has the drive and focus to be a very good performance dog in any of a number of sports or venues. She is a joyous gal, and will just need some help in understanding that she can trust you, she is safe and then she will give you her all.

She is spayed, housebroken, crate trained, up to date on shots and microchipped. She gets along with dogs, but is not recommended for cats. She has not been around a lot of children, but we believe she would be good with older children but small ones might be unnerving for her.

Do you have the skill and patience to bring out her best?

Gunner is Smart and Loves affection!

Gunner is a four-year-old neutered male located on Long Island New York. UTD on Shots and heart worm negative.

He would do the best as a solo dog or in a household with a mellow, non dominant dog. He is not suitable for a household with cats or small children. Gunner is housebroken and has basic obedience. He loves to play with his frisbee. He is extremely Smart and loves affection and attention but can be a bit strong willed at times. He would make a good jogging or Hiking partner.

Malinois Foster Jazzy - 20KB

Jazzy is a very sweet girl who loves to cuddle. She would benefit greatly by having an experienced handler and further training.

Jazzy is house broken, knows "sit", "leave it", and "out". Getting better at "stay" and "down" and working on recall. She is a very sweet girl who loves to cuddle. Jazzy would benefit greatly by having an experienced handler and further training. She is toy and food motivated, is a blank slate, and has a lot of potential. Upon her arrival to us, she was aloof but quickly warmed up and bonded to her humans. She is easy to teach, eager to please and takes corrections well. When feeding, she sits, waits and gives eye contact before she is released. When going out on a leash, tell her "wait" before crossing the door threshold so she knows that you go first.

She has a lot of good energy and loves to play with her toys and play catch. Loves the squeaky ones the best. Jazzy walks really well on the leash and loves to go for walks/hikes. She may pull slightly in the beginning but is easy to correct. She will walk next to you or you can give her the lead. Gets mildly excited if she encounters a squirrel on a walk, but once you tell her "leave it" or redirect her she moves on.

She is learning to like her crate. We are working on this. She prefers not to be crated and we have left her up to 4 hours uncrated.

Jazzy is best suited as the only dog. She Does Not like other dogs and must be the only animal or pet in the house. An experienced person/trainer could probably train her to be comfortable around other dogs. NO CATS. When meeting new people of any age, she can be skittish and uncomfortable with quick movement so care must be taken to manage introductions properly. She does not like to be approached head on with hands in her face. Jazzy needs someone that can give her structure with fair rules, a strong but gentle hand, and make her feel safe.

Jazzy is a lover, with big sweet soulful eyes and loves belly rubs. She likes to put her face close to yours and look into your eyes and sniff you. She will make someone a wonderful companion. She would do best in an active home and would probably excel in a sport.

Jenn is a uniquely colored girl

About 54 pounds and has a great temperament, with humans and other male medium to large dogs.(She hasn't been tested with female or small dogs) Jenn isn't a crazy high drive girl but should not be with young children, cats or chickens etc.

She likes toys and quickly learned to tug. Chases a ball but doesn't yet retrieve it. Jenn will work for food!

We would like to see Jenn in a home where she will be given something fun to do such as agility, rally, obedience, dock dogs, etc.

Roy 4-5 yr old neutered male - MD

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Roy - 15KB
Malinois Foster Roy - 10KB
Malinois Foster Roy - 20KB

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.

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 â€" 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?
