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.

Candy 2 yr old spayed female - VA

Fee: $325

Malinois Foster Candy - 34KB

Candy is an incredibly sweet girl!! She is 60lbs and about 2 years old.

She still has a bit of immaturity to her but is a quick learner and loves knowing the right thing to do to get what she wants (sounds anthropomorphic but if you could see her throw her butt on the ground to get in the house you'd understand what I mean). Her food drive has increased a bit since I got her. She hunted for her ball for 3-4 minutes in my garage, using her nose after the first repetition, and not looking for help when things got a little challenging. She's not environmentally sound enough at this point to do this in a new area.

She loooooves belly rubs, playing with a ball (running around chomping on it, chewing it, and playing fetch if you have two balls), and occasionally stealing things that don't belong to her for a quick game of keep away. Offering something of higher value makes it easy peasy to get whatever it is back. She has not yet swallowed a sock, but I wouldn't put it past her. She's pushy and dominant with my two spayed females (52# Malinois, 26# wire-haired terrier mix) but is very submissive to people. She will run toward her person and dive into a rollover for a belly rub. It's a pretty impressive move actually hahaha. I'll see if I can get it on video. :)

Crate trained (will whine when she needs something), mostly house trained (just pay attention, she goes to the door and whines), and while we're still working on house and leash manners she's certainly come a long way. She can be pretty rambunctious and just plain goofy but she's smart and is learning what works to help her get what she wants.

Candy would do best in a home as an only dog with dog savvy kids over the age of 8 children, if any. She has a normal energy level for a Malinois so needs an active person/people. She has not been tested close up with cats but would love to chase the bajeezus out of the stray that my neighbor feeds.

Candy is UTD, spayed and HW-. Candy will need a 6ft fence. She's a very athletic girl and slips into survival mode very quickly if she gets loose. We are working her recall at every opportunity. Candy is a verrry soft dog so every effort has been made thus far to keep things light and build her confidence while also building her respect for boundaries.

For more information about Candy, please contact: Cj.

Once in a Lifetime Dog

Grimm is approx. 66 lbs., neutered, HW negative and UTD on all shots. He is a great dog and will make someone a very nice active companion. He is crate trained, loves to hike, play fetch and tug. He rides well crated in the car. He has good ball and great tug drive. Prey drive is low although squirrels can peak his interest, but not in a crazy way. Walks great on a leash and can pull if he sees someone bouncing a ball on their property.

Grimm is a handsome, young, goofy boy who is eager to learn and needs a human who is ready to continue his training to make sure he becomes a good citizen. Like most Malinois, he is sweet but pushy. He needs clear boundaries and obedience training. He already knows basic commands (sit, down, stay) and knows to wait to be released to eat. He is like a puppy in a 2 year old body. He loves to try new things and is so much fun to interact with. He is ready and willing to please. He is super easy to redirect and just wants to be with you.

Although Grimm is easy going, when meeting new people or dogs he may initially be uncomfortable but does warm up with proper introduction. He gets along with other dogs (no alpha dogs) and loves to play. With other dogs (not humans) he can sometimes resource guard with toys and needs to be managed. He is very affectionate and has no idea how big he is so get ready for a smothering hug and sloppy kisses. We think he has spent a lot of his life in a crate so he is still learning how to be in a house. No small children, cats, or small dogs. Experienced dog savvy or malinois people only. Not for the first time malinois owner.

For more information about Grimm, please contact: Sara

Hutch 1 yr old neutered male - NY

Malinois Foster Hutch - 27KB

Hutch is good with female dogs and, with proper introduction, neutered males.

Located in Cortland, NY. 1 year old neutered male. UTD on vaccines, HW negative, chipped. A big (65-70 pounds), athletic, extremely smart young boy. Knows his basic commands and learns new ones easily. Serious goofball with a heart of gold. Loves toys, bone, balls, etc.

He is calm crated next to a strange dog and does not fence fight outdoors. House trained and excellent manners in the house. He is crate trained, and only barks when he knows it's his turn to come out. Once in a while he will try to evade the crate when he is having a fun time, but goes in with little problem. Currently he sleeps in a crate at night, has several hours daily exercise loose in a large kenneled yard (he is good in 4' or 6' fence), and spends a couple of hours each day as the "only dog" in the house with me. He curls up on my bed and will chew a bone or toy quietly if I am watching TV. If I engage him, he is quick to focus and desperate to please. He is a true baby Maligator and can get a bit mouthy, but it is always soft. He is a great prospect for agility or obedience. He wants to be with you and he wants to make you happy.

He shows his age when he runs. He's in the gangly where are my legs going stage and is a riot to watch run and play. Very sweet. Hutch has not met anyone he did not want to cover with kisses and attention. I do not have children or small animals. I believe he would be okay with older children (too big and active for little ones they'd go flying!) as he loves everyone so far.

For more information about Hutch, please contact: Debbie.
