Abby, 13 yrs old, spayed female - IN

Photo of Malinois Abby - 24KB

Because of poor health, Abby's owner had to give her up.

Abby is very sweet and her only health problem is some arthritis. She would love to get one-on-one attention, and she would give you her unconditional love. Abby is very sweet and good with other calm, non-aggressive dogs. She weighs about 45 pounds. Abby deserves a loving home to live out her years.

For more information about Abby, please call (219) 677-2961 or email Last Chance Rescue.

Ayla, approx 4 yrs old, spayed female - WA

Photo of Malinois Ayla - 11KB
Photo of Malinois Ayla - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Ayla - 26KB

This is lovely Ayla, a Belgian Malinois and she is ready for her forever home.

During her time in foster she continues to grow and let her true personality come out. She requires a semi-active home at the least, but would be overjoyed with lots of adventures. She rides wonderfully and respectfully in the car non-crated. She will sit and wait for her meals, toys, treats, etc. She does put her front feet on the counters from time to time, but has never taken anything. She is extremely malleable to most anything you want to do - hike, play fetch (tho needs more work on drop it), cuddle in bed, roll around with a male Malinois, go for a walk, hang out with me at work, etc.

She prefers to use the bathroom offleash, but has gone a few times while on leash. We have had no inside house accidents or crate accidents. However if she is at my work (Vets Office) if she is in a large run she will 'use' the run, and do a little barking and whining.

She is highly respectful of my Vet patients while walking through the ICU. If a dog stops at her kennel, at home or work she will growl, but never has escalated from there. Any person is fine with going in her kennel whether she knows them or not. At home she will give a warning bark to people/dogs outside the fence walking by.

Ayla will need an astute handler when it comes to body language as her prey drive is High and she means Business. A 6' fence is an easy obstacle should she really want what is running across it. That being said, her new home can NOT have cats, chickens, small dogs or anything other small critter. At work if she even hears a cat she is up and ready to take action.

As for other dogs, she loves Primo, my male Mal and respects him as Alpha. Another alpha female may be a challenge as would any dog that is always in her face. She warms up - but slowly and requires a dog to give her space. She will approach and engage when she is ready. Smalllish dogs only with constant direct supervision and over 20lbs would probably be best. She has met my Border Terrier/Schnauzer and is interested, although maybe Too much... he is 13lbs. They have never been offleash together inside or outside the house.

On our adventures, she is fun, curious, has stamina, inquisitive; yet cautious. Prey drive will kick in with bicyclists, joggers, and some children- especially those moving quickly. However she greets children out in the pet store in a sit and will give gentle kisses. That being said we feel a home with calm children over 12 would be best.

Ayla is still submissive and may lightly urinate at times - mostly when someone stands and leans over her - such as to put a collar on her. Because of this I ask her to jump up at my waist to 'put your collar on'. We have been working on having her sit and trying it while at her side and in front of her.. she is progressing nicely in this area.

Ayla will be destructive with toys outside her kennel, but has never destroyed any toy within. She does have food sensitivity and becomes severely itchy with poultry and grain. She does well on salmon and sweet potato and only itchy on and off. Her stools become soft and mucousy with diet changes. She tolerates vet exams just fine - but go slow with rectal exams. Nails trims are best on her side on the table. She can get snappy in any other position.

She will excel in any discipline - protection, agility, dock diving, high jump, etc. Ayla is goofy, gregarious, silly, stoic, engaging, loyal, and has many, many endearing qualities. While she does have some 'can't haves', her list of 'can haves' far exceeds. She is truly a special package for the right, loving forever home.

Preference will be given to homes with a secure 6'fence and someone not gone for many hours a day.

Our adoption process is an application, phone interview, and home visit. Please do your homework on the Belgian Malinois breed.... while wonderful, loyal, smart and protective they can be a handful and not for a first time dog owner. They thrive on regular positive training, lots of exercise, boundaries and a firm but fair, experienced handler.

For more information on Ayla, please contact: Jan.

Bentley, 18 mos old, neutered male - VA

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.

Erica, 11 mos old, spayed female - WA

Photo of Malinois Foster Erica - 10KB Photo of Malinois Foster Erica - 12KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Erica - 25KB

Erica is in the Seattle area and available for adoption on the West Coast only.

Stunning Erica is now approximately 11 months old, 25" tall and weighing about 55lbs. She is a very high energy dog (typical of the breed) with a strong prey drive and keen interest in the resident cat. She spends her free yard time either playing hard with the other Belgians or running circular routes throughout the yard. She tends to spin when anxious, whether on leash or crated.

Due to Erica's tendency to be easily distracted during training, various training methods have been tried, including food with verbal marker, tug, and now clicker. She does best using clicker with food. Erica has very strong tug drive and she is very reluctant to release her tug, so it is being removed as a training reward, for now. While at this time, she does not seem to have high ball drive, she does retrieve the tug as it is so high value.

She is an independent dog; not a 'velcro' dog; she will entertain herself if she needs to, but she does want to be with her family and she is sweet and affectionate. She is quite aloof with strangers, but neither people or dog aggressive. She has been known to overreact at the Vets. She can be mouthy (typical of the breed) and is a "clacker." (if you know Belgians you will know what "clacking" means).

This girl needs an experienced Malinois home that can give her the attention and focus she needs to shape and direct this smart package of energy. She will do best when she is given an outlet for all of her energy and intelligence.

We think no cats or small dogs, no small children, and ideally perhaps either no other dog or limited access to other dogs, at least for a while. Typically Malinois aloof, she most likely will bond specifically to one person, but will fit into a calmer family unit where the environment has limited distractions.

Please do your homework on the Belgian Malinois breed. While a great breed, they are definitely not for everyone.

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 is available but cost not included in adoption fee.

For more information on Erica, please contact: Jan.

Gitmo, 3 yrs old, neutered male - PA

Photo of Malinois Gitmo - 25KB

Gitmo is a wonderful boy that loves toys, going for walks, and snuggling with his owners.

Gitmo is a medium energy boy that is just as happy playing as he is to be curled up with you. He is highly environmentally sensitive though and will need a home with patient people that are willing to work with him on his stressors. He would also do best if he was the only dog in the home.

Gitmo wants to be your shining star. He loves to make you happy and doesn't share that spotlight well. He has never shown any aggression towards people but can be very shy with them until he gets to know them.

Gitmo would make a wonderful dog for the right family. He is housebroken, crate trained and has basic obedience training.

For more information on Gitmo, please contact: Amber or call 814-421-7078.

Haylee, 3.5 yrs old, spayed female - OK

Photo of Malinois Haylee - 23KB

Photo of Malinois Haylee - 19KB

Haylee is a very loving 3.5 year old spayed, female that weighs 48 lbs.

We rescued her at about 6 weeks old. I am not sure of any possible breed mix but her vet says she is likely full blooded or close to it.

Sweet. Very smart. Very trainable but has not been worked with much. She knows basic commands and will walk without pulling (sometimes that takes a few minutes of redirection).

Haylee is a cuddler and lies near my feet if I'm watching tv or at the computer. She has always slept in bed with either my son or me. She is a house pet and generally goes outside for short periods or for potty breaks. She is not destructive and the right home for her would allow her to be free. No crates please.

She is friendly to other people when we walk but she is aggressive towards other animals. This is worse ever since last summer when I rescued another dog that viciously attacked Haylee. Haylee never started a fight and attempted to get away. It reassures me that the right person could help her get over her fear and aggression. She has not spent time with children and is not friendly to kids she does not know.

Haylee has the typical tendencies of the breed. She loves to play fetch, find, chase, and keep away. She is alert and a great security comfort for me. I am moving and away from home a lot so am searching for a new home for this girl. We adore her and will only give her to someone that truly seems a perfect fit. I am seeking someone with training skills. It may be best if there are no other dogs in the house and no young children.

For more information on Haylee, please call or text Joyce at 405.812.9089.

Irene is a 2-year old Belgian Malinois mix who has been a stellar foster dog.

Irene was found living alone in a city park almost a year ago. Irene is great in a family situation and is nothing short of devoted.

She does great with kids and loves to be a part of the action. Irene is a great protector, but is playful and kind of a goofball.

Irene does well with other dogs, though she needs a slow introduction. She's fully vetted and spayed.

But, Irene is heartworm positive and has been working through the 'slow kill' method since January. She is completely asymptomatic and loves to go for a short jog.

Application and adoption fee required.

Potty trained, Vaccinated, Microchipped, Heartworm positive, Devoted, Prankster, Good running partner, Eager to please, Fantastic dog!

For more information on Irene, please call Amanda, (678) 665-8571.

Lucky, 6 yr old, neutered male - NY

Photo of Malinois Lucky - 21KB

A handsome hunk, Lucky is a dashing six year old, 65 lb, gorgeous fawn neutered male in the prime of his life.

Lucky was originally adopted from a shelter in Lompoc, California, and went to live happily on a big ranch with lots of other dogs and animals. Lucky is an excellent watch dog and affectionate family companion. He gets along well with other dogs, cats, and older children. He knows basic commands, walks nicely on a leash, and has no bad habits such as digging or chewing. He's perfectly housebroken and travels very easily in the car. Lucky can be left alone in the house all day, and he won't be destructive. He does have some weakness in his hips, so he doesn't need strenuous exercise.

Lucky's family recently had a sudden move to upstate New York. Although they were fortunate to find a "dog friendly" complex complete with a dog park, there are no private yards and Lucky is not adjusting well to life on a leash in a densely-populated environment surrounded by a continual parade of new dogs and people. Despite working with a trainer and efforts with herbal remedies, he is becoming increasingly anxious and aggressive on-leash.

Lucky would love to live in a place with his very own yard to protect again. He is healthy, loving, and well cared-for, and a good choice for someone looking for a mature, low-maintenance larger dog.

  • A few more things to know about Lucky:
    • He will chase livestock (horses, cattle, chickens, goats, etc), so be prepared for training if you have livestock.
    • He was once kicked in the head by a horse; he was VERY lucky indeed and suffered only a minor hairline fracture in the bone under his eye.
    • He has had rattlesnake aversion training!
    • His hips are weak, but he hasn't been diagnosed as dysplastic. As long as he doesn't go for long runs or very strenuous walks, it's almost unnoticeable. Rough play with other dogs should be kept to a minimum. On occasions when he has gotten sore, he has been given Metacam.
    • Lucky has leash aggression; new owners should be prepared to learn how to work with this.
    • He's terrified of thunderstorms.
    • He's nervous about meeting new people, particularly men, and especially men with hats.
    • He will wait till invited to cuddle up on the couch or bed. He loves to cuddle.
    • He chases his tail when excited, it's very silly!
    • He adores any and all squeaky toys.
    • When someone new comes to visit, he'll find a toy and tear it up into little bits... quirky!
    • Current owner is happy to provide all paperwork and answer any questions, etc.

For more information about Lucky, please contact: Debbie.

Luka is a goofy, fun boy who is all about play. He loves his squeaky toys

Luka is a 2-year-old male. He is a goofy, fun boy who is all about play. He loves his squeaky toys and has become a pro at two-toy fetch, sitting to trade for the toy. He walks politely on leash and ignores most dogs that bark at him on walks.

Luka needs an experienced owner. He is strong-willed and has a protective nature. He responds nicely to kind but firm leadership. A yard with a visible fence is important. He enjoys the companionship of his foster sister GSD, but would do fine as an only dog.

Luka wants most of all to have his forever people to bond with.

For more information on Luka, please contact Jenne.
