Aurik is a handsome 1 year old neutered male Malinois/GSD.

He has a beautiful sable coat with a dark face. He is approximately 27" at the withers and weighs 70 lbs. He has an athletic, sturdy build.

Aurik is very intelligent and is a quick study. He's easily engaged and enjoys training sessions. He sits and has impulse control, waiting patiently to be released to eat. He knows sit, paw, down, go to bed, time to go out, and is constantly paying attention to you. He has lots of energy and loves to play. Here are a couple of videos of him playing Frisbee and paying attention. https://youtu.be/ZUB7qpMeqRg https://youtu.be/-rpX_q6nadc

He is great with other dogs. Here are some videos of him with other dogs. https://youtu.be/aItmMo1ar5k https://youtu.be/TjNg0cEOY10 https://youtu.be/izUpfl310CA

He is 'game' to play with smaller dogs, but he plays rough so could accidentally hurt a smaller dog if not careful. Here he is trying to engage with our Beagles https://youtu.be/0JebuWYl4qE

He shares toys and likes to play tug o war. He is very good on a leash for walks and wants to smell everything. He would love to do nose work. He's good in the car.

Aurik has an off switch and loves to cuddle and sit in your lap. He enjoys sleeping while you watch TV and spoon or get as close as possible and relax for long periods of time.

Aurik is a very special boy with enormous potential. He is very loving and loyal and protective of his family. Prior to coming to us, he spent most of his life in a crate and was not properly socialized nor had much training. He is very cautious of strangers and must be introduced properly. He can be over protective when people come into his home.

He is a diamond in the rough and needs an experienced handler that will provide structure and consistency. He responds best to a firm but gentle hand. He would flourish in a home where he would be given a job.

He has extremely high prey drive so will not be placed in a home with cats or small dogs or animals. He will not be placed in a home with small children.

For more information on Aurik, please contact: Chris.

Bo is a very special guy who deserves an amazing home.

Bolero is a surrender from a breeder. Bolero (Bo) has been in foster care for most of his life now. Bo is a pretty typical malinois, busy, higher energy, mouthy, etc when he's comfortable. However Bo is very scared of men. He can live w/a man, provided the man is very calm, and patient with him. Bo will never be 100% comfortable w/men. Bo is great w/women, however and warms up pretty quickly to adult women.

Bolero has had basic obedience training. Current on DA2PPL, Rabies, Heartworm Negative and preventative started. Avid Microchip implanted.

Bo is crate trained and doing well on his house training. He has been around other dogs and is good w/them. He is actually quite submissive to the females he is exercised with.

Bo is learning to play with toys. Bo, once he bonds w/his people, is a highly dedicated, loyal dog. Bo has been through formal obedience classes. He does know basic commands. 50 pounds/22-23", Bo is a medium energy level dog, but he is more intense. I think if he's asked to do a job he'll give it his all and that will be a LOT.

Bo would do best in a female, adult-only home. He'd be a great dog for a single lady! We do have Bo's pedigree as well.

Bolero is available through Border Collie Rescue of Minnesota. To learn more about him, watch videos, etc, and to review our adoption policies, please visit our site at: http://www.bcrmn.org.

Bruno, 10 mos old, neutered male - GA

Photo of Malinois Foster Bruno - 21KB

Bruno is a highly intelligent malinois mix. He is very active and needs a lot of love, affection and attention.

He learns quickly, especially when food is involved. He is unbelievably sweet, loves to cuddle, loves food, loves to play. He is very playful, great with other dogs and kids. He has a habit of jumping when he gets excited but with more training he can be broken of that habit.

He has had some training knows how to sit, stay, lay down and comes when he's called. He is leash trained and does well on either collar or harness. He needs a diet that is high in protein especially if he is going to a highly active household and will be doing active outside things. He needs exercise daily or at least a walk daily.

He is unbelievably friendly, never met a stranger, loves to cuddle, loves to be on the bed or couch with you especially when it's time to go to bed. He picks up habits very quickly (both good and bad). He would be an awesome K-9 or search and rescue dog. This is a dog that needs a job. He likes to wear a vest and carry things in it. It makes him feel like he has a job.

He is a great family dog and has a pack mentality. He is quirky and funny. He has one heck of a personality and has one of the biggest hearts I've ever known in a dog. He needs more training with potty habits and is crate trained. If you tell him "cage" he goes right in the crate.

I would love nothing more than to keep him, unfortunately I was hurt in the job. I am in law enforcement and I am not sure when I will recoup from my injury. I can not walk without crutches so it is difficult for me to give him the exercise and attention he needs and deserves. I don't feel it is fair to him to suffer through my injury. I love him more than words can express so this is nothing easy for me at all, but I would rather him go to a forever home where he gets everything he needs and deserves than suffer through my injury.

Serious inquiries only. For more information on Bruno, please contact: Megan or call 301.442.4733.




Diesel, 2 yrs old, neutered male - Fresno, CA

Adoption Fee: $325

Diesel has a sweet, fun-loving personality

Diesel is an approx. 2yr old, neutered male Belgian Malinois. He is a big, strong boy, weighing about 60 lbs, with a sweet, fun-loving personality.

Diesel is non-reactive with other dogs and will initiate play. He has been working on basic manners at his foster home and learning to walk on a leash. He exercises daily with 2 mile runs or a spin around the orchards next to a bike. He is a fast learner and loves to use his nose! He shows potential for nosework fun.

Diesel has been sharing a home with a female Mal and a female Dutch Shepherd of similar size and age. There has been NO aggression with food, toys, ball, kennel or attention. In the yard, he loves to play ball, romp with the dogs or follow you around. When the family isn't home, he hangs out in a 10x10 outdoor kennel with things to chew on to keep him busy. If left alone for long periods, he will find things to chew up or dig. He also loves to fixate on cats so we recommend a home without them or small dogs. He will give chase to squirrels and raccoons. In the house, he is crate training and sleeps through the night in his fosters bedroom, as he prefers to have his people in sight. He has not had any accidents in the house and will settle nicely by your feet.

Diesel interacts well with school age children and greeting new people in the home but does need supervision with kids due to his size. Diesel rides in a car well but for long trips does better in a crate as he wants to chew on everything. Diesel still needs lots of work on impulse control, learning "stay" and "wait", getting exposure to new environments and continued manners/obedience training. He generally takes everything in stride and warms up quickly to new things. He is an awesome active companion with a big heart!

Jersey, 1.5 yr old, spayed female - MN

Fee: $350 + tax
Photo of Malinois Foster Jersey - 32KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Jersey - 15KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Jersey - 12KB

Jersey aka "Honey" is a sweet and loyal girl who aims to please!

Honey has been shuffled around quite a bit in her short life. She was initially rescue by a couple of senior citizens who immediately fell for her enthusiasm and charm. They were shocked to find out this bubbly girl was pregnant and reached out to BCRMN for help. Honey delivered seven happy healthy pups who have all found their forever homes, and now it is Mom's turn.

Jersey has had no formal training. Current on DA2PPL, Rabies, Heartworm Negative and preventative started. Avid Microchip implanted.

Honey is a petite purebred Belgian Malinois. She enjoys being pet, brushed, belly rubs and cuddling. She is crate and house trained and has obviously been trained in obedience because she is a dream to walk or run with on a leash. She adores toys. Fetch with a ball in the backyard is her FAVORITE, she could play all day long.

Honey is initially timid around new people and dogs but quickly warms up with some encouraging petting. Honey loves having a male dog companion to play with. Honey does not, however, play well with cats and cannot go to a home with feline friends. She has been around children ages 12+ and has done great with them.

Honey does have some impressive springs in her legs but she respects the 4' fence at her foster home. Honey LOVES people and wants some of her very own. She loves ending each busy day curled up on the couch snuggling with you, however in order for that to happen, she has to be physically worn out. 45 pounds/20" at withers, Honey is used to running 10+ miles daily, plus an hour of chuck-it. While she's a lower DRIVE malinois, she is still a malinois energy level wise. If she doesn't get her exercise, she has no problem making her own fun.

She is incredibly smart and loves being taught new games and tricks to impress and engage you. Due to Honey's desire to be near people and her active energy level we recommend a home where her family are frequently home and have a consistent, predictable schedule. Honey has patiently been waiting her whole life for a forever home with active, loving people she can call her very own. She aims to please and has all the heart and smarts to do so!

Jersey is available through Border Collie Rescue of Minnesota. To learn more about her, watch videos, etc, and to review our adoption policies, please visit our site at: http://www.bcrmn.org.

YOU SAID I COULD WEAR THE TUTU!

Meet Kiley. She is a sweet, protective (naturally without formal training), snuggle bunny. She loves people and once she knows you all she wants to do is lick, cuddle and play!. Her main passion in life is to run after and catch as many tennis balls or Frisbees that are thrown for her. You will always loose if it is a contest as to who gets tired first! Due to her incredible ball (prey) drive she would not be good in a home with small pets. Think of the movie "UP"...(SQUIRREL!). She thinks she is smaller than her 60 pounds as she loves to try and climb up on your lap and snuggle and she LOVES her afternoon naps.

Kiley is extremely smart and learns new tasks very fast.

Kiley needs a forever home with someone who will give her the exercise she needs. Daily runs or walks. Frisbee and ball throwing as much as possible. Agility would be perfect for Kiley as she is very very fast! As a puppy she was worked in tracking and herding. She has a GREAT nose!

Kiley is up to date with her shots and exams. She is a very healthy and rambunctious girl. She is on heart worm and flea and tick preventatives. She is crate trained but does not like it very much. She would much rather be next to you on the couch.

For more information on Kiley, please contact: Eileen.

Kodiak, 3 yrs old, neutered male - NC

Rehome Fee: $200
Photo of Malinois Kodiak - 10KB
Photo of Malinois Kodiak - 14KB
Photo of Malinois Kodiak - 26KB

Frisbee is Kodiak's favorite game

Kodiak just turned 3 years old on April 27. He weighs 95 lbs. He is house trained, crate trained, pinch collar trained and shock collar trained. He knows his basics; sit, down, stay, paw and leave it. He knows more advanced skills like release, back it up, and speak. He learns extremely fast and loves the challenge of learning new skills. Basic commands with wait for eating his dog food and okay to release him from a wait, stay or down. If you say off he leaves the premises. Go lay down he will lay in his dog bed or his dog love seat. He does have a snooze function ?? if you say five more minutes he will go lay down again in the morning so you can get a little extra sleep.

His usual schedule is waking up to go outside and eat breakfast then stays inside while we are at work. Then goes in and out as much as he wants after 5 and eats dinner around 6:30/7pm. He is mostly indoors besides going outside to play or go to the bathroom. He loves being outside and loves to roam a big yard. He has always had a fenced yard and would probably chase a squirrel if he saw one.

Frisbee is his favorite game. He will release the frisbee at your feet and wait for you to throw it. He also loves fetch or playing soccer. Very high ball drive. His favorite toy is a jolly ball it lasts the longest. His biggest bad habit is destroying toys like stuffed toys and ropes. Kong extremes and jolly balls work and last the longest with him.

He will counter surface if there is meat left out in the sink or on the counter otherwise he leaves stuff alone. He does have a trust issue with his paws but has come along way and if he trusts you, you can cut his nails and dry his feet with no issue.

He is extremely loyal and usually keeps track of you while you are doing things around the house. He is wonderful in the car. Lays down the whole time unless you are driving under 45mph then he wants to look out the window. He does great in stores like Home Depot, Lowes, Garden Ridge and Restaurants with outdoor seating. He does not go to dog parks because he does not like being challenged by other dogs. He does love going for long walks, running, hiking, and swimming. He has been at the beach and the lake. The ocean waves were a little scary for him but he still went in and the lake he runs right in. He has not learned how to jump off a dock just yet but he is learning.

He needs to be in a home without small dogs or cats, and would do best as an only dog. He is great with adults but has never been around small children.

He is such wonderful dog. He loves to be with you and be part of whatever you are doing. In the mornings and evenings he loves to sit with his head on your lap and have his ears rubbed. He loves to be brushed by the furminator. He does howl when he hears sirens which is really adorable because he tries to match the siren. He is such a fantastic dog and just needs the right home with loving owners who understand his malinois behaviors.

He does have a sensitive stomach so we try to stay away from chicken and keep him on a limited ingredient diet. He currently eats simply right lamb and brown rice from SAMs. He did really well on high protein by Nutella, if you can find that.

He is due for shots in May, and will be updated before adoption. He is neutered and heart worm negative, and in great health.

Got a kiddie pool? He would love it!

Lucky, 7 yrs old, neutered male - NY

Photo of Malinois Foster Lucky - 12KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Lucky - 19KB

Lucky is a healthy, 7 year old, very handsome neutered male Malinois. His owner needs to move to an apartment and does not feel this will be a good environment for him.

He is totally housebroken, up to date on vaccinations, and a sweet companion. He is a perfect gentleman at home or in the car, and gets along well with cats and other dogs (as long as they are not on leash). He has leash aggression around other dogs (Introductions can be bumpy as he's usually very assertive, but once they get acquainted he's great) so an adopter should be comfortable working with this.

A home with small children is not recommended as he is afraid of them. He's affectionate and playful, but also noble and aloof at times, which is typical Mal behavior. He's a sweet companion, and simply a gorgeous dog, poetry to watch him move. He is complete goofball when it comes to squeaky toys.

He loves to go for walks although he can have some stiffness in his hip if he goes on a long run or particularly rambunctious play, but most of the time he's completely sound. He is afraid of thunderstorms and suffers from separation anxiety, so he would be a great fit for a retired person or someone who works from home or is at home a lot.

Photo of Malinois Foster Mason - 23KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Mason - 31KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Mason - 19KB

Mason is a busy, happy, silly, goofy guy...all of which are pretty typical young boy malinois!

Mason found himself in a local shelter and was pulled for possible detection work. Unfortunately he doesn't quite have the drive needed for such work, but that's okay! He's still a wonderful guy!

Mason has had no formal training. Current on DA2PPL, Rabies, Heartworm Negative and preventative started. Avid Microchip implanted.

Mason is a total dork, a lovable, snuggleable, dork. He is all legs and silliness. Mason is good w/other dogs but has HIGH prey drive. He can NOT live w/small dogs, cats, pocket pets, free-range birds, etc. Mason's drive for small critters is strong and he always comes out on the winning end. Mason is great w/bigger dogs and loves to play. He's never met a person he doesn't love; he's really a very social dude. Mason is house and crate trained and seems to know basic commands (sit/come). He LOVES to have things in his mouth....kongs, balls, his food bowl, etc.

Mason is a higher energy guy w/medium drive. Some of this energy is likely puppy energy as well. He is looking for an active home who will DO things with him. He'd be a fun first-time agility malinois for someone. He is a forgiving partner and just loves to learn things. He is highly treat motivated, and will work for a toy as well. He has no concept of self preservation (typical), and couldn't be more excited to DO THINGS. Mason would do best w/kids ages 12+ simply due to his size/energy. He respects the 6' fence in is foster home; he does require a 5-6' fence due to his prey drive. Mason has been exposed to agility equipment and LOVES it. He'd be an amazing first-time malinois for an experienced agility home. He'd be a 24" dog (or 26" if you want to go that route).

Mason is a very fun malinois who is looking for an active home that can give him both physical and mental outlets. Is that with you?

Mason is available through Border Collie Rescue of Minnesota. To learn more about him, watch videos, etc, and to review our adoption policies, please visit our site at: http://www.bcrmn.org.

Mya, 17 mos old, spayed female - San Diego, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Mya - 9KB Photo of Malinois Foster Mya - 17KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Mya - 42KB

Mya is happy all the time and is lovable, affectionate but not cuddly.

Mya is a confident, lovely, strong, high drive, 17mo Belgian Malinois who, once she knows the rules is easy to live with but you have to stay on top of it! She weighs about 50 pounds and stands 23.75 inches at the withers. She is eager to learn and wants to please.

She has strong toy/ball interest and that is her current very favorite game. Anyone she sees playing any kind of ball (soccer, etc) will make her over the top excited. Foster is working on her responses to that. She will pick up a scent in the back yard and try to track it. Mya is easily distracted however and for this reason she may not be a good working/detection prospect. She loves elongated toys/tugs and has a harder time releasing these. Her known commands are down, sit, wait, stay, drop it, get in/go crate, okay (for release). Mya is able to hold her 'wait' command until released to go outside/inside or come out of her crate. She has made great progress with her foster and is testament to what Mya is capable of doing with the right handler.

She is crate trained and can be in a crate for up to 8 hours. She will volunteer to go in her crate when she feels the need. Mya is happy all the time and is lovable, affectionate but not cuddly. She does love to be petted and will lay on her back to be petted as well. It is unknown how she is with children or cats. She is good with big dogs/males but females can be a problem.

She has been exposed to a variety of things/places. She regularly attends agility trials (as a spectator), travels in the van beautifully, goes through drive-thru, has gone to the park, long walks etc. Loud noises do not seem to bother her. She has gone over an A-Frame, and through agility tunnels. She has run free while playing with another Malinois and recalled nicely.

If left unattended for a bit in the back yard she is known to dig if there is nothing else to do. She does need leash work (pulls) and the foster has been using an Easy Walker. She is reactive to highly stimulating environments and she may lunge in excitement. Foster is working on a more relaxed 'settle' response. She likes to snap at things floating in the air like leaves, feathers, dog hair and bugs. She is allowed access to the foster's closet, but she inspects but does not chew up things she finds (shoes, socks etc).

New people and experiences may worry her a little but she is gaining confidence as her exposures broaden. She will take food from anyone's hand and is typically gentle about it. She allows most everyone to touch, pet, rub her chest, touch her tail and head. She will make eye contact for food. She will approach willingly and quickly and may lunge forward (but not bark) when she sees new things that really interest her, and with commands she will sit to settle.

Mya's eyes are almost always warm and friendly and capable of good eye contact. When they are not, she is looking at something with great interest – intensely. Nipping has not been observed, she loves to engage with most everyone. She is just 'so so' at the Vets as she was a little scared but she has boarded there just fine. Sometimes, if in a large crowd of people, Mya will try to climb into her foster's lap. She's too big to be a lap dog and kind of silly on her part. It is as if she's seeking closeness out of a need to feel secure.

Everyone that comes in contact with her just loves her and comment on what a lovely dog she is. Mya needs a home where parameters are set and everyone enforces them. Consistency will take her a long ways. She needs a job or lots of focused activity. She seems to enjoy the little bit of agility she has been exposed to, and probably could be excellent at flyball, dock diving etc.

Due to her high energy (she is a Mal after all!), she needs to have many opportunities during the day to release that energy in positive, mentally and physically stimulating ways.

No small animals, no small children, unknown with livestock.

She is a lovely dog that really pulls your heartstrings!
