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.

Cagney landed in a shelter as a stray and no one came looking for her.

DESCRIPTION: She has done well with other dogs she has met and has been friendly with people she has met. She is a petite young girl who needs to gain a little weight. Training will go a long way for Cagney, as it does for all of our dogs. It is important that a bond is created between the dog and their handler/family. It helps you both learn more about each other and teaches good canine manners.

UPDATE:Cagney has been in her foster home for a few weeks now and is settling in nicely. She loves toys and will bring them to her handler and drop them at his feet. She's been working on her social skills with her foster with dogs, cats & humans. She will need an experienced handler who will give her a structured environment. She gets along well with the other dogs in the foster home when its a toy-free environment. She's still got some work to do on her leash manners but that's because she's been working so hard on her social skills. She's improving with cats, but cannot be trusted at this time. Cagney loves people and dogs, but she's unsure about trusting them. Her foster will continue to work with her and building her trust with new people.

Current Size: 47 lbs.
Potential Size: 55 - 60 lbs.
House Broken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Learning
Living With: Foster
History: Shelter
Good with Kids: No
Good with Cats: Currently chases
Other Dogs OK: Not at this time

She is currently located at Mid-Atlantic GSD Rescue.

For more information on Cagney, please contact: MAGSR.

Photo of Malinois Foster Dakota - 11KB

Dakota is very sweet, loyal, and energetic. She requires tons of attention and love.

She lives with a 10-lb dog right now and they get a long just fine but she does chase iguanas and ducks. I don't know how she is around cats. But she is good with other dogs and very friendly with people and children.

She loves playing ball and Frisbee with her owners. She enjoys going to the beach with her ball and will run in the water to retrieve it, but does get a little hesitant about the waves. She gets very excited to go in the car! She loves the window down to see everything!

She is terrified of thunder and fireworks and needs a closed in space to hide during storms and firework displays. It might take a little while to come out of hiding after the noise has faded, but eventually she will feel safe.

Flynn, 2 yrs old, neutered male - El Paso, TX

Photo of Malinois Foster Flynn - 20KB

A friend has realized the adoption they made of a Mal mix is more than they can handle and have come to the conclusion they need to find this dog a home that can give it much better attention.

The Dogs name is Flynn, very smart, tall, he just turned two, lives well with cats, but ends up in a kennel 12hrs a day with NO walk and ends up pacing the floor to get rid of the energy. He has no play time or exercise time due to the owner's lack of attention to the dog and the fence is so low in the back yard that he gets out all the time because he is bored. The neighbors know his so well that when he gets out they know to bring him back to the house.

He has all of his shots, and I understand he is chipped. The dog lives in El Paso, TX. I would like to find him his forever home with someone that understands this type of dog and can give him what he needs.

I want to keep this excellent dog from going to a dog pound/kill pound. He is neutered and has all of his shots. He has a chip and they have paperwork on him.

For more information on Flynn, please contact: Randy of Guardian & Friend K9 Training or call: Direct(719) 574-0931 Cell(719) 460-2784.

Ginger is a 9 month old puppy that looks to be a Malinois Belgian mix.

She is a sweet, sometimes shy female. She has shown no aggressive behavior towards other dogs or children. She is very playful and energetic. If she gets bored she has a tendency to chew on things. She definitely needs her playtime. She is very affectionate and has shown no food aggression at all. She has been spayed and is current on all her shots. She needs someone that can play with her and love her. She would make someone a great friend.

Hoss, 10 yr old, neutered male - OR

Fee: $375
Photo of Malinois Foster Hoss - 21KB

Photo of Malinois Foster Hoss - 21KB

We call Hoss the International Mystery Dog.

This handsome Dutchman was likely born in the Netherlands but ended up a stray on the streets of California before he was picked up by animal control. We imagine his life has been very interesting so far.

Hoss is still able in mind and body and his intensity now would put many younger dogs to shame. He looks like he has had hock surgery in both back legs, but he moves very well.

Hoss is a powerful dog who needs a confident handler, as he can become a bit mouthy when in drive and amped up. He is centered on his handler and has clearly had training, responding to German and some French.

You can get him to do anything for a ball. In fact, he gets tunnel vision if one appears and will go through whatever is between him and it (so he should not live with small children or frail adults). Food and tugs motivate him too.

Hoss is calm in a crate but may vocalize when bored. He travels well when crated, too. Most likely a kennel dog in the past, he can be "a bull in a china shop" and still needs to work on his house manners.

Hoss has strong, stable nerves and is not easily spooked. His foster has not observed any aggression toward people or dogs, and he is not possessive about food or toys. However, he does get vocal if someone approaches his territory. He mostly ignores other dogs, but he will likely eat cats. Our guess is he would probably be fine around livestock.

With people, everyone is an old friend. He has an overabundance of love and life, and will calmly accept all the love you can shower on him.

Hoss's ideal home might be a semi-active single person or couple looking for a dog to keep them on their toes. Someone who is home often would be ideal; he seems to enjoy the closeness of having people nearby, even if he is crated. Long walks on the beach, moderate hikes, or running through open fields would all be welcome. He might be interested in doing some nosework. He is fostered now near Portland, Oregon.


For more information on Hoss, please contact: Jan.

Katniss, 1 yr old, spayed female - Los Angeles, CA

Fee: $375
Photo of Malinois Foster Katniss - 11KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Katniss - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Katniss - 24KB

Katniss is a sweet, energetic special needs Malinois.

She is always up for play, but will settle and enjoys working on obedience or another fun activity. She is biddable and focuses on her handler when out in public. She has been exposed to trips to the local hardware store, nosework training class, and will sit quietly when she comes along for a lunch appointment. She is approximately one year old, and has had some form of prior head trauma in her young life. As a result, she has mild facial focal seizures daily, and limited vision in her left eye. She is currently on anti-seizure medication, and also takes CannaPet for relaxation. Her seizures last 5-15 seconds, and she appears to be unfazed when they end.

Katniss is a currently approximately 55 lbs. She has ample bone structure, and looks to be a bigger girl when she matures.

She is currently living with 3 other Malinois and a French Bull dog. She plays hard and a small dog is not recommended to avoid any injuries to the small dog. She would do best with a submissive larger male, although a being single dog would give her undivided attention. No children please as she is at times exuberant in her play style.

Due to her limited vision, she prefers to walk next to you when out on a hike. She does love to run however, and will run in a big circle with such enthusiasm that you can't help but smile. Katniss has a gift of bringing joy to people. One of her favorite things to do is to snuggle with her foster Mom.

Katniss knows sit and down. She lays quietly near the fireplace when she joins her foster family to watch television, but will often engage in a game of bitey feet when she first comes in. Katniss has learned to use a dog door, however she is not reliably housetrained as she will default to circling when she is trying to find her way to the door. She sleeps in a crate at night, and does not potty in her crate if taken out to potty near bedtime. She does potty on command.

Katniss is crate trained, and travels well in the car.

Katniss requires a special home. One that understands that although she has a disability, she is still a young Malinois that needs exercise for both her body and mind. Katniss has been started in Nosework, and her favorite game is "find the hotdog". Katniss is spayed and is current on vaccinations.


He is currently located at Brother Wolf Animal rescue in Asheville NC.

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

WEST COAST ADOPTIONS ONLY, HOWEVER, if application is strong we may consider placement in other Western US states.

For more information on Katniss, please contact: Jan.

Leah, 3 yr old, spayed female - LA CA

Fee: $325

Photo of Malinois Foster Leah - 13KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Leah - 21KB

Leah is an adult female Malinois. She is 3 years old and stands approximately 22 inches at the shoulder, and weighs close to 60 pounds.

Leah has a strong prey drive, and loves to run and chase. She may excel at Lure Coursing, a game where the dog gets to chase the mechanical "bunny" She has been started on Nosework, and showed a good work ethic.

Leah loves to play fetch and tug. She has a very good "out" command. She has been working on basic obedience, which includes sit, stay, down, and come. She does need additional training on her leash manners.

Leah is crate and also house trained. She knows how to use a dog door, and settles nicely in the house.

Leah is also good in a kennel run, but can jump very high. For safety reasons, a run with a top is necessary. Leah is relatively quiet, but does have a loud alert when her owners return or when she is playing. She is good with most dogs, however due to her prey drive, small excitable dogs may stimulate her.

Leah does have some fear of reactive dogs. She is generally nervous with new people, but warms up nicely to her people. Leah is much more relaxed in a country atmosphere. She prefers starry skies to city lights, and she loves to go hiking.

Leah is continuing to build confidence through play rewards. She will generally work for food, but her prey drive is much stronger. She is sensitive and can become unusually submissive when unsure. She appreciates a quiet, calm home with an active person. Leah will be a great dog for someone looking to continue her training and trust building. She has not been evaluated around children or cats.


For more information on Leah, please contact: Jan.

Lucky, 7 yrs old, neutered male - NY

Photo of Malinois Foster Lucky - 11KB
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.

For more information on Lucky, please contact: Debbieor Susan.
