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 with an old hip injury that required surgery. Thanks to some generous malinois folks she had her surgery. She is all healed and ready to play!

Angel is four 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.

Bandit 10-12 mo old spayed female - NY

Fee: $350
Malinois Foster Bandit - 30KB

Bandit is the sweetest most loving dog you could ever ask for.

We are not certain of her age, but we guess somewhere around a year old. She was found with two other dogs in a snowbank on the side of the road in late January in upstate NY. The shelter thought they were puppies at first because of their size. She is small, only weighing about 30 pounds but the vet says she is healthy at that weight. The amazing thing is, despite what must have been a difficult start to life, she has no medical issues at all. Because of her small size she might do well at agility or fly ball but she is pretty laid back and could also just do well as a couch potato as long as she has someone to snuggle with.

Bandit's only issue seems to be separation anxiety. She gets very anxious if any of her pack leave the room, pacing and whining. She would do best in a home with few comings and goings; maybe a home where someone is home all day with her. She is definitely better off in a home with other dogs who will help her feel less anxious when someone leaves. She gets along with other dogs, people (she is a bit shy at first but warms up well) and even cats! (As long as they don't run, then she responds like most Mals and chases…..).

She would probably be best in a home with no small children only because when she gets excited she jumps and she would knock them over or scratch them. We are teaching her to put a bone in her mouth which stops her from jumping but she only does it about 50% of the time so far….. She responds to the slightest correction and is very eager to please. She shows no food aggression and she has been spayed and microchipped. If you think Bandit could be a good addition to your pack, please contact us!

Ginger is a *Special Needs girl that gets along with everyone – dogs large and small, kids, even cats.

She is even friendly to strangers. So no, she is not your watch dog or security dog. She is not a barker, so might be good for someone living close to neighbors.

Ginger has only moderate drive, and a good "off" switch. She has a great "find it" nose and would enjoy playing at nose games with her human. But as a moderate energy gal, she would be a great Malinois for the first time Mal owner. She may run into you when she comes in to greet you at a dead run, but she does not jump up. Like all Malinois, she would do best with an active owner willing to take her for walks, hikes and train her.

Ginger is an excellent house dog. She is crate trained and house broken, and will let you know when she needs to go outside by nosing the doorknob. She has NEVER had an accident in the house, even when she had a stomach bug. She does not jump on furniture and sleeps in her own bed. She has shown no interest in trying to jump the 5 foot fence, content to stay in her yard. The only downside to Ginger is in the house is that her happy, wagging tail can clear a coffee table! She also needs extremely heavy duty toys as she is a hard chewer. She does like appropriate chew toys though, and has left other household items alone. She should not be left outside alone however, because she will eat sticks.

She has learned basic commands, and has a good recall. She likes to fetch and will bring a ball back. She walks moderately well on a leash though she could use some work. However, she does not need any harsh corrections, not even a loud voice. She is eager to please and gets anxious if she thinks she has done something wrong. Over correction makes her very nervous. A patient heart and a firm voice, letting her know what you want and praise and rewards when she does it right, is all she needs. She will bloom into the dog you have always wanted.

*She is offered as a special needs gal only because she has some allergies. These make her itch, with an all over body itch, ears, paws, belly, back and face, including red eyes. If they get really bad, she may have vomiting and severe diarrhea. But again, she has never had an accident in the house because she ALWAYS asks to go out – though during a diarrhea bout, those requests might be very frequent. Her allergies are controlled with a high quality protein specific grain free food, but absolute adherence to her diet is a must – no slipping table scraps and not dropping cookies. This is the ONLY reason we are recommending that she go to a home with older children, so that they can understand the restrictions. She has been treated very successfully for periodic flare-ups with hydroxizine or temaril-p. Once in the adoption process, her foster Mom can talk with you about what has worked and help you know exactly how to care for her so she can thrive.

Happy Leyla, a lovely, sweet girl, gets along with everyone – even cats!

Very little is known about Leyla's early life but everything about her says that she was loved and well cared for.

She slipped right into her foster home. She is housebroken and is starting to get the hang of ringing the back door bell when she wants to go out (but usually she waits for her foster-sister to do it), respectful of household furnishings and quiet in the house. Leyla is not thrilled with her crate, but is eating in it and spending a little time each day in it to get used to it. She's been left in the house either loose or in an ex-pen with no problems at all. Sometimes she barks a little when you leave the house but settles down quickly and is quiet after that. In a house full of hyper-vigilant bark-y dogs she hasn't participated in any of the chorus of chaos that usually happens when someone goes past the house, thunder & fireworks also don't seem to bother her at all. She sleeps through the night in the bedroom on a dog bed and is the only one in the house who hasn't woken foster mom up.

Leyla shares her foster home with several adult male dogs, one bratty puppy and three cats. She mostly ignores the dogs who want to be left alone and the cats, unless they're running (or accidentally land on her while jumping across the room), but a "Whoa-hold it" settles her right down.

As she's coming out of her shell, more of her Malinois personality is showing – she likes a rousing game of tug or bitey face, complete with all the sound effects, with the resident year-old puppy. She allows her game to be interrupted, will give up her tug toy with only a little struggle and is very, very careful about putting her teeth on her foster mom. She does make very gentle tip-of-the-teeth Malinois nibbles when she's feeling cuddly and happy. She will make a typical "this is mine, back off" face at the resident dogs if they get too interested in her toys, but has not escalated beyond that and will allow foster mom to take toys away. She walks well on leash and does not seem to know—or have any interest in learning—"sit", or "down", she is catching on to her name, so her "come" is getting better.

Leyla will probably settle very well into any household, she would probably like a mellow young male or younger female to play with, but she could also do well as a solo with an active family. Because she does like a rousing game of tug with her person or a buddy dog a home with older, dog-savvy kids who can redirect her energy is preferred.

Videos of Leyla:

Negatives are few and minor. She does like to dig hole in the garden and disembowel her stuffy toys.
