Beau, 5 yr old, neutered male - PA

Photo of Malinois Foster Beau - 12KB Photo of Malinois Foster Beau - 13KB
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.

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.

For more information on Boxer, please text me your information at 732-319-0066.

Brooklyn, 1.5 yr old, spayed female - San Diego, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 9KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 10KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Brooklyn - 18KB

Brooklyn is a 1.5 year old, petite, spayed Belgian Malinois with a big personality.

She weighs about 50 pounds and will love you with every ounce of her being. She very much wants to bond and to be part of a family. Spunky and very busy, Brooklyn will require a firm leader. Very typical of Malinois, she needs an outlet for her considerable energies and stamina.

Brooklyn is a social girl and really just wants to be with her people. She is happiest chasing after a chuck it ball, playing bitey face with her foster's male Mal or running on the trails. She gets along well with her foster family's kitty. There has been no aggressiveness, just curiosity. If the kitty moves quickly or suddenly, Brooklyn would like to give chase but when kitty is walking around, Brooklyn will go say hello, give a sniff and see if the cat is up for play. Dog savvy cat may be ok. She's very focused on her foster's horse.

Brooklyn is not aggressive but is an alpha female. She can be bossy with other dogs and "mouthy" when excited. She is a wonderful playmate to her foster's Malinois and they run, romp and play in the way that only Malinois will play- all out, full body contact play!

Brooklyn is a good, all around stable dog. She has not been fazed by anything she's been introduced to. She will walk on any surface, jump on anything and strange noises do not startle her. She seems to take everything in stride. Brooklyn has been out and about- from a rural area to suburban streets to an urban downtown, she's seen it all. She is fine with people on bikes, cars going by and seeing other dogs. She is solid with kids but should be supervised since she tends to get mouthy when excited. Brooklyn is a confident and forward friendly dog who needs a confident leader who will give her direction.

Brooklyn loves water. She has recently been introduced to dock diving and is already leaping off the edge of the dock. Her fearlessness and confidence (& ball drive) propel her right off the dock and into the water! Brooklyn loves to play tug. She has been learning basic obedience and manners. She is housebroken and currently being crate trained (will go in and sleep all night in her crate). Brooklyn is learning to walk nicely on leash and to heel, which is coming along beautifully. Off leash, walking through the orchards or trails, she will 'check in' often and has fantastic recall. She loves car rides and is working on house manners.

Brooklyn's forever home will need to continue her training in order for her to thrive. She needs an active home. Brooklyn would be perfectly happy living with another dog or as a solo K9 (if kept busy with owner and or family). She likes a job and can become anxious when bored or unsure. Brooklyn does not bark unless excited or as a protective warning. She loves going for runs with her foster mom. After she's been exercised, she is happy to curl up on her dog bed by your feet or sit with her head in your lap. Brooklyn loves the companionship of her people. She will be a wonderful, loyal companion for the right person.

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.

For more information about Cali, please contact: Debbie

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.

For more information on Gracie, please contact: Cheryl.

Fenway Loves People!

Fenway is a 2 year old Belgian Malinois located in Macomb, Michigan. He loves people and is ready to find his forever home!

Fenway is a smart boy and he gets along great with other dogs. He is house trained and would do best in a home without cats. He has a little bit of separation anxiety, but he is slowly working out of it.

Miika, 3.5 yr old, spayed female - CT

Photo of Malinois Foster Miika - 23KB

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.

For more information on Miika, please contact: Judi.

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.
