Beau, 5 yr old, neutered male - PA

Photo of Malinois Foster Beau - 9KB

Beau's birthday is May 23, 2009. He was adopted as a rescue at 5 months of age and boy oh boy was he unruly. He has been with his adoptive mom since that time.

Beau's last annual physical exam was with his vet at Hopewell Vet. He weighed 70.3 pounds and obtained a clean bill of health. He is neutered. Beau has always received regular veterinary well care on an ongoing basis. He is microchipped and up to date on all his shots. He receives Frontline applications on the first of every month.

This beautiful boy is house broken and "My Space" trained. When told "My Space" he will go to his bed, lay down, and stay there. He is not crated when alone is the house, but will not touch anything that is not his. He will go in his crate without any signs of anxiety if directed to do so. Beau has had extensive training via the "Nothing In Life Is Free - Dog Theory For Training". He comes with a complete list of commands that he responds to without hesitation. When shown the borders of a room (ie. kitchen) and told "No Stay" while putting hand up as stop, he will not enter the room. Beau will not jump onto any furniture or bed unless invited. He has the best canine manners imaginable.

Beau is not a barker. He will bark if there is a knock at the door to alert the family someone is there. He will howl at sirens. He LOVES physical activity. Currently he runs 2-3 miles each morning with his foster mom and then walks another 1-2 miles in the evening. He is incredibly agile and a great hiker/mountain climber. He is good off leash and will return on command. Beau is a prey driven, breed type dog and not good with small critters (ie. cats, squirrels, ground hogs, possums). He is actually able to climb a tree to get to a squirrel. He is friendly and will interact with other dogs with proper introduction.

Beau loves attention and affection. He will lie for long periods of time or snuggle while you stroke his soft coat. He is eager to please and protective of his handler. He loves to be groomed and allows his owner to trim his nails with ease.

He takes treats gently when hand fed. Some of his favorite toys include his antler, snake with squeakers, balls, and tug of war ropes. Just as much as Beau loves to play and be active, he loves to relax and snuggle once he is played out.

We really need to help this amazing boy find a forever home with a family that will adore him the way his mom has up to this point. He has been with me as a foster since June 16, 2015 and has been just darling, but he definitely is lonely and needs a permanent home. I'm sure he is confused and unsure of what is actually happening. I know one thing for certain; he knows his mom is not doing well at all. He was very sullen and depressed when he returned to us on Sunday after his weekend visit with mom. It is heart breaking to see him in this state.

Please share and crosspost. Someone out there must be willing to open there home to wonderful Beau and prove to him that his life can once again be stable with an abundance of love.

For more information on Beau, please contact: Nicole Del-Mese, 484-388-1165.

Wanted: An owner/forever friend who is active and up for fun adventures. Are you the one for me?

Well, I'm a blast! I'm always ready for new and exciting times and would love someone to share them with. Because I am still young, 18 mo old neutered male Belgian Malinois mix (92 pounds), and learning some manners, I'm recommended for homes with children over the age of 12.

If you have other dogs at home, please bring them to meet me. We need to make sure any canine companion can keep up with my play style. FYI: I really like the ladies and I am much better behaved around my female canine counterparts. Let's schedule a play date today! We just might be made for each other.

For more information on Bentley, please contact: Taryn or call 540 434-5270.

Malinois Foster Dot - 21KB

Dot is a seriously smart girl!

She is currently being fostered with a family of three other dogs. At first she was very timid and insecure, but now her peppy personality is shining through. When her foster mom comes to play with her in the yard she bounces around in circles and even smiles. Her foster family estimates she's 5-6 years old. Dot is very active, loves to play fetch, almost always has her nose to the ground and is a dream to walk on a leash. Dot is crate trained and settles nicely when the family goes out.

It appears that she was crated for the vast majority of her life L as she is apprehensive about new noises and objects. When Dot first arrived at the foster family's house she didn't have much muscle development, but now she's a happy, athletic and affectionate pup. As her confidence builds she is becoming braver and more obedient.

Fletcher, 3 yr old, neutered male - LA, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Fletcher - 12KB Photo of Malinois Foster Fletcher - 17KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Fletcher - 24KB

Fletcher is outgoing, curious and forward friendly to both people and dogs.

Fletcher is an enthusiastic 3 year old neutered male. He's approximately 25 inches at the shoulder and weighs 55 pounds. He is outgoing, curious and forward friendly to both people and dogs. He is a very charming boy who is house trained, crate trained and quiet in his outdoor kennel.

Fletch has superstar good looks to go with his outgoing personality. He's an engaging dog that loves to be with his people. Fletch knows basic obedience and is currently working towards his Canine Good Citizen title. Fletch likes to play tug and is learning to release his toy on command. He is medium energy level and enjoys morning walks and playtime with his foster's resident brother and sister (both Malinois). Fletch is also living with a male French Bulldog. Although no play is initiated, he is respectful of the smaller dog.

Fletch is working on his house manners and uses the doggy door with confidence. He has an 'off switch' and will relax on his dog bed for a nap while you are busy in the house. Fletch is a pro at riding in the car. Since one of his favorite activities is being with his people, he's up anything as long as it involves his person.

Interested in agility? Fletch is very agile and will happily hop up onto anything you ask him to. He is food motivated and is eager to engage with you. Fletch has been started in the sport of Nosework and shows great aptitude. He is an eager searcher, and has quickly learned the "find it" game.

Fletch is confident without being pushy. He alerts to noises when necessary but is not an excessive barker. Fletch has had limited exposure to cats in his current foster home but has shown interest in chasing the cat.

Fletch would be best suited to someone who would enjoy continuing his obedience and exploring other fun dog activities. He will make a fantastic addition to the right Malinois savvy home.


For more information on Fletcher, please contact: Jan.

Ike, 9 mo old, neutered male - LA, CA

Fee: $325

Ike is very much a Malinois puppy who is learning his place in the world.

Ike is a 9 month old, neutered Belgian Malinois. He weighs about 50 pounds and is a big boy, at about 24 inches at the shoulder. He is very social with people and large dogs. His foster has two Malinois. We are unsure of his reactions to small dogs. He's respectful of the resident dogs and enjoys being part of the family.

Ike is learning to ride in a car. He'll load up into a crate and ride along quietly, ready for the next adventure. This has been a milestone for Ike. He was once quite fearful of the car/crate but this should serve as testament to what Ike is capable of achieving with a devoted and patient handler. He will be suited for a variety of activities once he gains some confidence and gets more obedience training. He is food and toy motivated but will not 'trade'. His foster continues to work on this with him.

Ike has a very stable personality and by that we mean nothing frightens him. He can be strong willed at times and needs firm correction and guidance. If he has something in his mouth (toy, towel, dog bed), he doesn't want to give it up. He is learning 'drop it' but is doing very well with 'leave it'. Ike is generally biddable and will call off of object like countertops and the couch. He knows how to 'sit', has a (short) stay and is learning 'down'. Ike is learning recall as well as walking on leash. He's not destructive in the house and learning manners. Ike will let you know he needs to go out and potty by barking near the back door.

Ike has been going with his foster many agility trials in Southern California. The socialization has proven to be very valuable. His foster has a large yard that Ike takes full advantage to run, play (Ike is still learning about play) and blow of steam. He's been out on the agility equipment and is building confidence. Ike is crate trained and will kennel up fairly easily in the house. He may bark at things that are over stimulating or that are causing a commotion, such as other dogs or people walking by. He will quiet down on his own.

Ike is not aggressive and has a gentle mouth when taking treats. He genuinely wants to please his person. Ike's a medium energy dog. After sufficient exercise and mental stimulation, he will settle down in the house and/or outside. He is typical Malinois in that he wants to be near his person. Ike enjoys the closeness and is affectionate. He'll ask for pets and scratches. Ike has seen a cat and a kitten (in an enclosure) and he completely ignored them. He is very respectful of the kids he's met. Ike was told to 'sit', the kids fed him treats and although he wanted to play, he was very respectful.

Ike is environmentally stable. Fireworks don't bother him in the slightest. He loves to chase lizards. He's been swimming and will jump in from the pool's edge. He learns quickly and follows directions. Ike is a youthful dog who is very much looking to bond with his forever person. Ike would be a wonderful addition to an actively family looking for a great pup.

Keeley, 1.5 yr old, spayed female - LA, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Keeley - 11KB Photo of Malinois Foster Keeley - 25KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Keeley - 32KB

Keeley, as with most Malinois, needs to be actively doing things or she is not fun to live with.

Keeley is a 1.5 year old, spayed Belgian Malinois. She holds her weight around 47 pounds and has a compact, athletic build. She's about 24 inches at the shoulder.

Keeley is ALL IN, ALWAYS! She gives 200% to whatever she is doing. She will tug (targets well) or play ball like her life depends on it and has a very nice out command. She has excellent prey drive but overall we consider her to be medium drive. Her prey drive does include live animals and she has not been exposed to cats. She has fairly good food drive but prefers tug over food. Keeley has not been exposed to kids.

When Keeley is lounging in the house she wants to be near you. Like many Mals she attaches to her people. Keeley would love to be sitting in your lap, giving you a hug. She really wants to be with her people and will climb any mountain or fence to be with them. Keeley can become a little over-attached. She continues to be crated sometimes even when her foster family is home. Multiple practices have been employed to prevent her from escalating to real separation anxiety.

She will chill out in the house but if you are up for something, she is ready. Keeley tends to be a licker. She will lick your arms, feet, anything she can reach. Foster family is working on decreasing this and have made much progress. However, if she is feeling a little stressed out comes the tongue. Keeley absolutely LOVES a car ride and crates up nicely for a drive.

Keeley has been trained to sit, down, go to place, kennel, load up-kennel in truck, wait until released for supper, and out (drop it). She is in training on leave it, stay, paw touch, target stick, nose work, leash walking without pulling. Keeley has been exposed to agility equipment such as tunnel, teeter, a-frame, jumps and can do it all. No fear of any of the equipment and tries to go fast to get her reward. She is currently working on her trick title and will have her certificate very soon.

Keeley is house trained. She will not only hold it in the house but does not like to go potty in her outside kennel. If she has to go potty she will excessively bark until she is taken out. She sleeps loose in the house, most nights, but is sometimes crated. She does fine either way. With regards to crate training, she is very good most of the time. When first left alone she will protest but will settle. She will bark if you are sitting in front of her and she is crated. However, she has no problem if you are not directly in front of her. With further training this should get better.

Keeley is typical of the breed in so many ways. Fast flying, high jumping good times. She will need a home that will give her an outlet for her considerable amount of energy. Keeley is all about playing and with an experienced handler, could easily segue her energies into competitive areas of interest.

Keeley has a tendency to be reactive around other dogs. If the dog is calm she is much less likely to react but an excited dog creates an issue. If redirected early in the sequence of events, the behavior can be managed. Like most Mals, her behavior is much better when worked.

Keeley appears very noise stable and environmentally sound. It is rare for her to react fearfully to a new place or sound. She has been fostered in a rural area but new places- parks, busy traffic areas- have not been an issue. Heavy thunderstorms have had no effect on her. During the most recent storm that rolled through, Keeley laid on the floor staring out the back door while the thunder clapped.

Keeley does not resource guard from humans. She will allow her humans to take her beloved toys. If playing ball toss or tug, she will become possessive if a dog is near. She reacts strongly if she sees another dog has a toy and she does not.

Keeley can be pushy when she wants something. She will need an experienced handler who will set fair, firm and consistent boundaries. She would do best in a single dog household. Again, with a strong leader, she may be managed with other dogs.

Strangers are generally just friends she has not met but she has shown some protective tendencies. Her adoptive owner should be ready and willing to work with her. Many of Keeley's behaviors are a work in progress but she will be a fun dog for the right person.


For more information on Keeley, please contact: Jan.

Lou is a fawn with black mask Shepherd looking for new home.

Her foster family took her in as her owners were moving out of the country, and could not take her with them. She is good with children as the family she came from had three pre-teens. She is good with other dogs her size but can be too rough for smaller dogs without supervision as she is slightly toy possessive. She will let you do her nails, you can take her food dish with food in it, and she loves to be groomed. She is two years old, house broken, crate trained, spayed, and up to date on vaccinations. Located near Statesboro Georgia. She comes with her bed, brush, and a crate. She is eager to please and has a good toy drive. Currently residing on a sheep farm.

For more information on Lou, please contact: Cindy.

Mila, 6 yr old, spayed female - OH

Photo of Malinois Foster Mila - 19KB

Mila is very intelligent and knows all basic commands.

Mila is crate trained but when lose in the house unattended she will "go" in the house. She will also get into the trash any opportunity she gets. Outside of that, she is a wonderful dog.

She has never shown any aggression towards children. She isn't fond of other female dogs but she sees to tolerate males. Sometimes she will overeat or eat too fast and regurgitate her food.

We love her but do not have the time to watch her every move. We hate how much time she is spending in the crate because she cannot be trusted. She loves car rides and does not require a leash. She does not leave your side.

For more information on Mila, please contact: Marcia.
