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.

He is great with other dogs. Here are some videos of him with other dogs.

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

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.

Beau, 5 yr old, neutered male - PA

Photo of Malinois Foster Beau - 21KB
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.

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:

Boxer, 5 yr old, neutered male - NJ

Photo of Malinois Foster Boxer - 12KB Photo of Malinois Foster Boxer - 13KB

Boxer is a 5 yo, neutered boy who is looking for a new home! He is currently living in an apartment and missing his big backyard!

Boxer does need a big yard to run,he loves to chase squirrels. He is 5 years old and has calmed down a lot. I adopted him a 6 weeks, looks like, runs like, jumps like a Belgian Malinois and is extremely smart.

He is a great guard dog and loyal. He does great in a car, I always have him with me, you will never feel like you're alone he will be at your feet.

Boxer is not crate trained. He is very particular about whom he likes and he does not like people he does not know petting him, he must check them out first. He does not like eye contact. He is a dog that does best with a regular routine and not much change.

Boxer loves the people he lives with but it takes him time to warm up to new people. He must be given time to get to know new people.

He is not good with small children (can play rough, to be on the safe side).

He is not a big eater, up to date with all his shots. He is spoiled.

He is not for the weak, the crybabies and somebody who has arthritis (just saying). He needs an active home that will give him the physical and mental exercise he needs.

His downfall is rabbits; he will try to get out of his harness to chase them, he needs somebody stern and strong to keep him from pulling away. Someone who can work with him on 'focus' exercises and 'leave it' would be great! Because of his prey drive we recommend that he does not go to a home with cats.

I love him and for the right person he will be a great dog for you.

Brooklyn, approx 2 yr old, spayed female - San Diego, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 27KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 15KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 20KB

Brooklyn is a Malinois that loves cats and is great with kids!

She plays with the resident kitty and loves the human kids (4 and 6 year olds) in her foster home. Brook will sit with the kids, often times, right in their lap and adores being a part of the family. She is solid with kids but should be supervised as she tends to be mouthy, especially when excited.

Brooklyn is approximately 2 years old, is spayed and weighs about 50 pounds. As with most Malinois, Brook thrives on inclusion and nearness to her people. She loves a job and does best when given direction. She could be a great 'starter' IPO sport or performance dog. Her confidence and willingness to please will give you many options as far as activities to keep you busy and bonded.

Brooklyn has been introduced to dock diving and has shown real promise with the sport. Her boundless confidence and ball drive propelled her right off the dock on her first time out. She is unafraid to try new things. She wants nothing more than to be part of the family and have an outlet for her considerable energies.

Brooklyn is unfazed by new environments, sounds, people and situations. She has been exposed to many different circumstances and has proven herself to be a reliable and predictable dog. Rarely does she get 'worried' and if she does, she's easily redirected and snaps out of it. Brook tends to obsess and bark at her foster's horse. If you have livestock, expect to do some additional training.

Brooklyn is crate trained, knows basic obedience (in French and English), rides well in the car and is an all around great dog; however, she can be rude, pushy and demanding with other dogs, especially other females. Brook is not aggressive but is an alpha female. She will play and play with her fosters male Mal but he is very tolerant of pushy females. We believe she would do best in a home as an only dog or with a male dog who won't be bothered by her sassiness. Brook does fairly well on leash but if over-stimulated, she will pull and try to have her own way.

Brooks needs an adopter who will set firm boundaries right from the start. A petite, little firecracker, her adoptive family should expect to lay down the ground rules immediately. If she senses you are soft, she will push. If you are firm and fair, she will respect your position. Her adoptive home should plan to continue her obedience training. There's no telling how far this 'big dog in a little package' will go. To know Brook is to love her.

Previous Malinois experience required.


Our adoption process includes- completion of an application, followed by a telephone interview. If that goes well, we will arrange for a home visit. Adoption Fee: $325. Transport along Interstate 5 is available but cost not included in adoption fee.

Cali, 8 yr old, spayed female - NY

Photo of Malinois Foster Cali - 21KB Photo of Malinois Foster Cali - 18KB

Cali is 8 yrs old and needs to be re-homed.

Cali needs to be re-homed. She is a sweet 8 year old Malinois that the family has had since 10 weeks old. She doesn't get along with their 6 year old child and needs to be the only dog. Not cat tested. Cali would do best with older (teenage) kids and would make a great companion dog. Knows basic commands, low food and toy drives and low maintenance. Crate trained and UTD on shots. She has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI), which is very treatable with specific supplements.

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.

Gracie, 3 yr old, spayed female - TX

Photo of Malinois Foster Gracie - 22KB

Gracie is high energy and loves to be part or the pack (Human or Canine)

She is very affectionate and loves to run and play. She knows some basic commands but needs to continued work.

She gets along well with other dogs, they will need to be younger to handle her playfulness. Not sure about cats but would probably be fine as she has shown no signs of being aggressive. She is great with kids but not smaller ones as she can sometimes be a little rough without knowing it.

She needs to be with a family that has time to train and exercise her and she will gladly repay you with lots of loyalty, love and kisses. She would love to go on daily walks but needs some leash training as she is very strong.

She is crate trained, uses a doggy door and does not have any accidents in the house. However if she is left alone and is bored she will chew on what ever is available so dog bones recommended. She has been an inside dog for the last year so that would be best. If she is going to be an outside dog she will need to be with other dogs as she does not like to be alone.

She has completed heartworm treatment and is ready for her Furever home; prefer someone close to Houston TX.

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!

Khan, 9 mos old, neutered male - San Diego, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Khan - 20KB Photo of Malinois Foster Khan - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Khan - 17KB

Khan is a 9 month old Belgian Malinois who is looking to light up the life of some lucky person.

He weighs about 65 pounds and is basically all legs. He's a super silly dog who will make a stellar family member.

Khan is environmentally stable and nothing seems to rattle him. He's not shown any indication of being a flight risk. He will happily play in the yard and loves to interact with his people. Khan is pretty good with rides in the car but will occasionally whine. Khan is an eager learner and will work for food and takes it gently from your hand. Food is his biggest motivator.

Khan is constantly cracking his foster up with his puppy antics. Imagine a dog with a puppy brain yet an adult body and you'll get an idea about Khan. Although he's tons of fun and is a big goof ball, he is a Malinois and will still require an experienced Malinois handler. Khan knows a few basic commands- sit, stay, down. He's not dog aggressive. Khan's adopter will need to continue his basic obedience training, invest time with him and explore dog activities to which Khan may be suited. He is a versatile, young dog and could likely be good at any number of activities.

Khan is crate trained and will sleep through the night in his kennel. In the morning, he will whine a little as indicator that he's up and ready to go outside. He is at a normal stage of training for a young dog as far as being house trained. Examples: Counter surfing if there is food, jumping on people (foster is dissuading these 2 behaviors) and being allowed to go outside to potty regularly so he maintains his perfect record of not going in the house. He will settle down when told to; however, that is after he has had ample exercise and some training to burn off some of his Malinois energy.

Khan is easily re-directed from things he shouldn't be doing. He is learning boundaries, structure and proper house manners. Khan is affectionate, playful and likes to cuddle with his people. He walks well on leash and is an excellent patient at the vet's office. He has been out and about with his foster (places like the pet food store) and Khan behaves very well. He has been around small children but his puppy exuberance is too much. Khan is not aggressive but it's possible he'd knock a little one down. He'd do better with older kids. Khan has not been around cats so we cannot say for sure how he would react. Khan has been living with some small dogs (who are big dog savvy) and everyone gets along fine.

Khan's adoptive home should plan to continue his obedience training indefinitely and be willing to explore some different dog sports and keep him moving. Animated and full of life, Khan will make a wonderful addition to the right Malinois savvy home.

For more information on Khan, please contact: Jan or call 828-712-7003.

Photo of Malinois Foster Manny - 17KB

Meet Manny! He's a super happy, social dude who loves everyone he meets!

He's a total wiggle butt and melts when he's given attention. Manny came into rescue through a local impound facility. We were told he was chained up before he came in. Despite his not-so-amazing start to life, nothing rains on this guy's parade.

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

Manny is good w/other dogs, even borderline submissive w/them. He has shown interest in cats, but is easily detoured; he will need continued training w/kitties to ensure a happy home environment. Manny is a typical, busy puppy. He is also a typical malinois, ie: everything is in his mouth and he wants to chew. This is typical of the breed and does not go away as they grow up! Manny respects the 6' fence in foster care; he'd probably be fine w/a shorter fence as well. Manny is doing well on his house and crate training.

Manny is still being evaluated for sports potential. Given his happy attitude and energy level, he could easily be a hobby-level agility, rally, obed, etc dog. He likes toys, but doesn't have crazy prey/toy drive. Manny would be a good first-time malinois for an active home who can exercise his body and his mind. He could live w/kids ages 12+.

Manny 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:

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:

Miika, 3.5 yr old, spayed female - CT

Miika is a high energy, high drive, alpha female who has not had much training and yet is extremely smart.

Miika is a a 3 1/2 year young Malinois or Mal/Shepherd cross. My husband and I adopted her when she was 8 months from a retired Chief of police who was having difficulties with her around an ailing wife. She is a high energy, high drive, alpha female who has not had much training and yet is extremely smart. I thought we would be able to train her as we had many Shepherds prior to her living with us. Sadly, I lost my husband 6 months later, and Miika has proved to be too much for me alone.

Miika knows basic commands like sit & shake and sometimes "no!" but does not have off leash commands down, or the command to come or stay when she is told. She has not been able to be boundary trained, therefor cannot be loose or off leash with my 8 year old Shepherd when we take walks, she is always on a leash. I did have a trainer working with her last summer, and she was able to get her to walk off leash in a very controlled environment with little to no distractions. But enter in another person, child or dog, and she does what she wants. She is always in motion, and has earned many nick names, including the Bull in the China Closet and Problem Child. If you want it knocked over, stood upon with muddy paws, or taken off the counter in a flash, Miika is your girl! You don't even have to ask, just invite her in, she does it automatically!

Honestly, though, she's a love....not intentionally a bad dog, has just had it tough. Already two homes in her young life, and now I am not doing her justice. She is great with other male dogs, but ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BE PLACED WITH ANY FEMALE DOGS, and I wouldn't try cats either. She is Alpha Female to the fullest. Has had no issues with teenagers, but because of her strength & high energy I would say no children under 12. A single male with some time to commit to her would be ideal for her. Spends her days in a fenced in back yard, is very protective of her surroundings and will keep intruders at bay. No crate needed for Miika, she is housebroke and does not chew. Traveled a little in our truck when we first got her, but no long excursions because of her lack of training. Has been with an 8 year old GSD for the last 2 years and would have some separation anxiety I think if she were an only dog.

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.

Maverick, 4 yrs old, neutered male - Mammoth Lakes, CA

Fee: $325

Mav is an easy going guy, for a Malinois, and is neutral to other dogs.

Maverick is a neutered Belgian Malinois who is approximately 4 years old. He weighs about 60 pounds and is a tall boy. Legs for days. He's a soft eyed dog who is aloof at first but warms quickly.

Maverick is neutral to other dogs. He has never been the dominant dog in the bunch and that's just fine with him. Mav prefers the company of humans to dogs anyways. Affectionate and looking to bond, he is extremely loving and will lean his weight against you. He's a sweet boy.

Mav knows sit/down and wait/stay. His foster is working on recall with him. He's a smart dog and loves his people so we believe he will be a quick study. Mav, so far, has shown no interest in toys. He is sensitive about his paws and nails being trimmed. Mav has been introduced to new places, people, cats, birds, dogs of all sizes/genders and temperaments. The times that Mav does get scared or stressed, he's more apt to hightail it out of there rather than lash out. His recovery time is fairly fast.

Mav is learning about the crate and so far has done quite well with it. He is fed twice daily in his crate and will go in and out without issue. He understands the crate is a safe place and although he'd prefer to sleep on the bed, he knows his nighttime sleeping spot is in his crate or on his dog bed on the floor. Mav is a sensitive dog so gentle reminders rather than harsh corrections do the trick with him. He was left alone in the house recently, as a test, and he passed with flying colors. He didn't get into anything, nothing was chewed or destroyed and he met his foster at the door with a happy tail wag.

Maverick is not food nor toy aggressive toward people or other dogs. Mav's foster has a kitty and there has been no issue; however, rabbits are a different story. The prey drive will kick in and he'd love to give chase. He's getting better on leash. There was a time he would pull and pull but his foster has been working on this and Mav is being very responsive.

Maverick is a known fence jumper. He can and will climb over a 6 foot fence if he's bored. However, if you are in the yard either interacting or just being cognizant of him, he won't make a break for it. It's a self rewarding behavior (he gets bored, jumps, he gets what he wants) but the cycle can be interrupted. Mav's adopter should plan to start obedience training right away and begin to explore outlets for his energies. Mav will also counter surf but his foster is working to nip the behavior.

Maverick is an easy going dog in the car. He prefers to sleep and enjoys the quiet time. Mav is good with the teenagers in his foster home and isn't concerned about their noise or their comings and goings. He's aware of noises but not overly bothered. Mav pays attention to changes in his environment with no notable reactions.

A loyal and loving companion, Mav has much to offer an adopter.
