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.

Jaxx 1-2 yr old neutered male - CT

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Jaxx - 22KB

Jaxx is a very handsome  little mal, 45 lbs very red with a full black mask.

Jaxx is  pretty easy going and  seems to like all he meets. He is good with other dogs, and  can play a bit rough at first but if put in his place by a female  will be respectful. He is fine with large and small dogs..

He walks well and quietly by your side when on leash.   Jaxx has learned the "crate wait" as they all must do here.   He will wait when you open the door to invite him out.   He is great in a crate, which is where he sleeps and also where he travels in my vehicles, not a barker or chewer, he even leaves his blanket alone!   (I never had one do that)

He does not jump on fences or run fences.   I can mow the lawn and he has no interest in the mower either!    He has an off switch but definitely loves to have his running time, though he's more of a sprinter than a long distance kind of guy.

Probably no cats as he is extremely interested in little furry  things that run or fly!   While  he is not overly food driven, he will work for it but not in a crazy way.   He will work for toys with a much more animated style!   In his kennel he has kongs and will play if you play other than that he leaves it be.   He loves to play ball with you!     He can be toy possessive but will "out" when told.

His nose leads the way for this guy.   He will notice and find any new thing brought into the house, doesn't do anything just finds it.   We've been down to the river and the lake a few times and while he likes it and  has gotten totally wet getting the ball he has not officially swam yet!   Just a matter of time!

We would prefer a relatively local placement in New England or Mid-Atlantic states.

Sandee 6 yr old spayed female - PA

Malinois Foster Sandee - 10KB

Malinois Foster Sandee - 21KB
Malinois Foster Sandee - 15KB
Malinois Foster Sandee - 19KB

Sandee is a spayed female, approximately 6 years old, healthy & up to date on all her vaccines.

While she is not fond of other dogs, she does eventually warm up to them. She is fine with cats. She has not had a lot of experience around children.

But the one thing Sandee longs for most is a loving human. She will follow you all over the house, curl up at your feet, and not let you out of her sight. She craves affection.

Sandee loves riding in the car and will sleep peacefully on the back seat for hours at a time. Anywhere you go, Sandee is happy just to be by your side.

She does have some separation issues, anxiety when crated, but her foster home is working on that.

Sandee is not your typical high-energy Malinois, she is more of a couch potato. She would like nothing more than to cuddle up next to you on the couch and watch TV.

If you would like a loyal companion that will never leave your side, then Sandee is your girl.

For more information about Sandee, please contact: Cindy.

If you want to apply for this dog, click Sandee's Adoption Application which will automatically be sent to Cindy, Sandee's coordinator.

Scout 1 yr old neutered male - MD

Fee: $275

Malinois Foster Scout - 20KB
Malinois Foster Scout - 31KB

Athletic boy looking for his new job

Scout is a one year old male Malinois. He spent the first part of his life in a crate outside, and he does have some damage to his ears because of it. He is 45 pounds, and he is on the smaller side.

He is an enthusiastic fence jumper. He jumps our fence for the sheer sport of it if let in the yard off-leash. Scout does very well with our two resident female Mals and two beagles that come to our house daily. He is untested with cats, but I would say a house with no cats would probably be ideal.

Scout does ok with small children if heavily supervised. He gets very excited easily with loud, boisterous play, and he could knock over a child.

We are still working on housebreaking and basic commands. He is very much a blank slate, and he will be true velcro dog to the lucky person who chooses him.

Taz 18-24 mo old neutered male - MD

Fee: $325

Malinois Foster Taz - 21KB

Taz is an affectionate, playful, energetic boy for Mal-savvy adopter.

Taz (was Monroe) is an 2 yr old neutered male Belgian Malinois looking for his forever home with an experienced owner. He had been turned into animal control after being found as a stray and was at high risk for euthanasia due to some acting out behavior. He was pulled by ABMR and placed in foster with an experienced dog trainer/behaviorist who felt that most of Taz's issues were due to poor training, and inconsistent and unclear expectations and that he would do very well in the right home.

Once he bonds with you, he is extremely sweet, playful, affectionate, and protective. He is indifferent to other animals and people in public as long as they stay out of his personal space. He is very accepting of others as long as proper introductions are made. Eye contact seems to be a trigger that can set him off, and while he can sometimes be very reactive and potentially aggressive at these times, he has always been very respectful of his handler and redirects quickly. He prefers men to women and is recommended for adult-only households. While he may do best as the only dog in the household, he could be OK with more submissive-tempered female dogs with careful introductions and supervision.

Taz is active and energetic and enjoys playing ball and tug, and crashing around the house in true Malinois fashion! He has good reward drive and his foster feels he may be a decent hobby sport or detection work prospect. He has been exposed to agility equipment and while he's a bit reckless, it's felt he could improve with further focusing and training. Taz would also make an excellent running or hiking companion. He knows some commands in German and English, and while he may need several repetitions to figure out what is expected of him, he is very consistent once he understands. He isn't bothered by much and has great clarity on exercises once they're learned. He is crate trained but like with many Malinois, a more study Vari Kennel is recommended for him.

Taz continues to progress with his training and for the right person, he is a diamond in the rough. He had a difficult start in life, but is ready to start over with a dog-savvy adopter familiar with his breed. If you are willing to be consistent and patient with him, and to continue with his training, Taz will be your faithful companion for life! Taz's perfect home would include: Fenced in yard preferred although he currently respects boundaries and is trained to an underground fence. Experienced, adult only home - Smaller household preferred and ALL members must be experienced with working dog behavior and actively involved with his care and training.-Only dog in household is preferred. Must be willing to pick Taz up in Maryland or meet foster part-way. No shipping. Taz is NOT a candidate for a service dog.

Tommy 18 mo old neutered male - NJ

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Tommy - 10KB
Malinois Foster Tommy - 9KB
Malinois Foster Tommy - 19KB
Malinois Foster Tommy - 27KB

Tommy is a sweet, handsome, playful, 18 month old Malinois looking for his forever home.

The first half of his life was not what a puppy needs; the breeder kept him in a kennel the entire time. He was surrendered to rescue with an injured tail and while in short term boarding it became infected and needed to be amputated. He spent the next several months recovering in the veterinary hospital. When he came to the foster home he was withdrawn and afraid of everything, and had no clue how to live in a house.

Tommy is now a happy boy that gets along with other dogs, CATS, men, women, and teenagers. He can wag his stump pretty fiercely when he is happy! He was boarded for a few days in a home situation, and did well with a multiple people/animal household. He is pretty mellow in the house, but loves a good run in the yard and chasing balls. While he does not have the retrieve perfected, he will let you take the ball from him and throw it again. He is crate trained and stays there during the day, but can be trusted alone outside of the crate. He is finally housebroken, and has shown no desire to counter surf or jump over a 4 foot fence. He would love a bigger yard to run in. He willingly lets unfamiliar people come into the house, and will not jump on them.

He still gets spooked sometimes by strange noises or rapid movements, but they in no way shut him down. A quick jump of surprise and he is good to move on. He is no longer "afraid of the world". We are working on leash walking - he's still all over the place when we go, but it's improving. I haven't been able to get him to sit or down, and while he will ride nicely in the car, getting him in there is a challenge. We have a goal...

I can see Tommy as an only dog getting spoiled to death, or as part of a pack that he can play with.

For more information about Tommy, please contact: Carolyn.

Vida 6 yr old spayed female - NY

Fee: $175
Malinois Foster Vida - 18KB
Malinois Foster Vida - 28KB

Don't let Vida's grey face make you think she is an old girl!

She is about 6 years old and full of life. We are still polishing some manners and commands and she will need some continued training. She appreciates a good snooze on the couch but would also love to be a part of an active family who will adore her.

Vida would do best in a home with no cats or small dogs, as she has some prey drive. Other non-dominant dogs would be ok. Vida can play a little rough so she would do best in a home with no small children. She is spayed, UTD on shots and HW negative. This middle aged lady deserves a second chance at a good life.

For more information about Vida, please contact: Debbie

If you want to apply for this dog, click Vida's Adoption Application which will automatically be sent to Debbie, Vida's coordinator.
