Razor, 7-8 mo old, neutered male - MN

Razor is a 1 y/o malinois boy. He is actually Jersey's pup.

He was held back to see how he'd mature (he's small - 40#, 20"), but is now available for adoption.

Razor has had a lot of foundation training. Current on DA2PPL, Rabies, Heartworm Negative and preventative started. Avid Microchip implanted.

Razor loves to play w/other dogs, but he does play like a malinois: noise, body slamming and teeth. He is a high energy guy who NEEDS physical and mental stimulation. He is not a couch potato. Razor is working on his house/crate training. He does best w/a consistency and a schedule. Razor is pretty interested in cats, so he shouldn't live w/them in his new home.

Razor has been started in basic rag work (IPO). He is a momma's boy, and looks to his foster mom for direction initially, but once he gets into the game he loves it. His trainers feel he would be an excellent "first" sport dog for someone. Razor has also been started on nosework and basic obedience.

Razor is looking for a sport/performance home only. If you are experience w/high drive, mouthy dogs and want to try something like IPO, then this goof ball is for you!

Razor respects a 6' fenced in yard (although he's got some major springs in those legs!). He would do best in an adult home as he can be quite mouthy.

Razor 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.

Romeo has the Malinois energy and exuberance but is not 'over the top' like most Malinois.

Romeo is a 5 1/2 year old Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd mix. He has the Malinois energy and exuberance but is not 'over the top' like most Malinois. Romeo just needs a home with an active family and a fenced yard to play in. Frisbee is his FAVORITE game! He usually bring it back but sometimes he likes to be chased around the back yard. He is a wonderful running and hiking companion, especially if you are by the water, he will just jump right in and splash around. He loves to be outdoors with his person.

Romeo lives with other dogs but would be best with a good natured, larger dog or as an only dog (preferably) because he have so much love to give and would rather not share his person. He is definitely a Velcro dog and I just wants to be loved.

Cats and small dogs are definitely a problem because of Romeo's strong prey drive. He is also best suited for homes with older children (14 years old or older) because of his size and playfulness.

Romeo is fully vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and even had a recent dental!

For more information on Romeo, please contact: Deborah.

Sandy, approx 1 yr old, spayed female - Green Cove Springs FL

Photo of Malinois Foster Sandy - 15KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Sandy - 12KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Sandy - 18KB

Sandy is approximately a year old Shepherd/Mal possibly purebred Belgian Malinois (we are not sure)

Sandy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, flea, tick and heartworm prevention. She is micro chipped.

Sandy was Rescued from living at a Trucking Depot in Jacksonville where we teamed up with another Rescue to lend assistance. When Sandy first arrived she was extremely shy, thin, flea, tick, internal worm infested. She now is healthy enough for Adoption.

She loves to play with all the dogs in Rescue. Sandy still is a bit reserved with people but in a quiet home environment if someone is looking for an exceptional companion, Sandy is your girl. Sandy also loves to play with toys and has a very high ball drive! A home without small animals preferred.

If you would like to offer Sandy a wonderful home and a chance to feel a part of a family and or need additional information regarding how to adopt, or our adoption process please email me direct at luvgermansheps@yahoo.com or submit an online application at K9 Services German Shepherd Rescue An application needs to be completed prior to arranging a meet and greet.

All dogs in rescue are temperament tested and have basic obedience implemented as a part of their daily routine. All behavioral issues are dealt with according to each case scenario. All dogs prior to going home are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed and or neutered. Application, home-check, and references must be approved prior to final adoption.

Shandy, ??? yrs old, spayed female - OK

Photo of Malinois Foster Shandy - 8KB

Shandy is very people friendly, but is not good with small animals.

Shandy is a beautiful Belgian Malinois girl. She is very people friendly, but is not good with small animals (including dogs). She seems to do fine with larger male dogs, but she might be too dominant for female dogs. Keeps a clean crate and is very sweet.

Adoption fee for all dogs and puppies is $120.00 each, which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations (including all puppy boosters for puppies under 4 months), worming, flea/tick treatment if needed, and collar/leash/tags.

She is currently located at Pets & People Humane Society rescue in Yukon, OK.

For more information on Shandy, please contact: Pets & People or call (405) 350-7387.

Tamsin, 1 yr old, spayed female - CA

Fee: $375
Photo of Malinois Foster Tamsin - 27KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Tamsin - 33KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Tamsin - 35KB

Tamsin stands out as a motivated, clear thinker with excellent self-control who can become still instantly although highly aroused.

Strong-willed and independent, she is also friendly, good-natured, and adaptable, and will keep you laughing at her mischievous, innovative games.

Tamsin loves to play with other dogs, almost too much. If they ignore her overtures, she barks, paws, and darts at them. A calm, assertive older dog could help her learn her manners. Her adopter, too, will need to provide structure and rules.

On leash, Tamsin may pull, especially to reach another dog. However, she responds well to calming techniques and can refocus on her handler. Off leash she follows well but may refuse to recall if she suspects she is going to be put away. She travels and crates well, but is restless and loud in an outdoor kennel.

Food is Tamsin's best motivator, then toys. She'll eat almost anything gently from your hand, even vegetables. She thinks everything is a toy, including clothing, so she should not be left unattended in a house until she learns better ways. Commands she knows well are sit, down, stand, with me (left side), and out. A firm "uh-uh!" is usually enough correction, but if she really wants to do something, a fairly strong consequence may be needed before she will stop, and she may give some resentful lip about it. Inconsistent or unclear rules will frustrate her; her adopter will need to earn her respect.

Tamsin is calm in the house and friendly to strangers, politely soliciting petting from everyone. Although she likes children, she probably should not be with young ones because of her rollicking nature. She actually enjoys going to the vet, and is okay with everything but having her feet touched. Due to her propensity to become overly exuberant and chase-obsessed, she cannot share a home with small animals (cats/bunnies/etc) or dogs under 40 pounds. Loud noises such as thunder or falling pans don't frighten her.

She loves to run with a bike, hunt lizards, play tug endlessly, and chew on marrow bones. The flirt pole is her favorite toy. Her hunting and retrieving are currently pathetic, but may improve.

Tamsin is spirited and could excel in IPO or ring-sports. Her most obvious potential is in her tugging and strong engagement in play-fighting. She already shows promising grips, carries well, and leaps back into her opponent's arms with the tug. On a bungee tieback, she shows good effort and commitment with quiet, clear-headed intent.

Her ideal adopter would be able to give her lots of individual affection and training. She should be worked daily for at least several hours with physical and mental challenges and pretty tightly managed the rest of the time to prevent destructiveness and solo adventuring. Tamsin is being fostered in the Redding, CA area.

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

For more information on Tamsin, please contact: Jan.

Tika, 3.5 yr old, spayed female - WA

Fee: $375
Photo of Malinois Foster Tika - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Tika - 21KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Tika - 27KB

Tika is about 50 lbs. She is very friendly, and at times can have a tendency to be overwhelmingly affectionate.

She is a medium energy dog that loves to play ball & tug, but settles down very nicely in the house. She is totally content with a ball in her mouth while laying at your feet.

She is house trained but current foster has other dogs, so she is crated while her people are gone. Tika is a very dominant female so she can only share her home with an easygoing male. Due to her high prey drive she also can not be housed with any small animals- (cats, birds, pocket pets, etc)

Tika will love you with every ounce of her being and learns new tasks quickly. Because of her intelligence she requires a strong, but gentle handler that will consistently stay on top of her training as she likes to push boundaries. She is sensitive and follows voice commands as well as E-Collar vibration corrections that have been used in long distance recall work or when out running in fields and hiking.

Her high prey drive, natural urge to chase, propensity to use her nose combined with her compact size, quick reactions, all suggest that Tika might be a great prospect for lure coursing, barn hunt or herding. In fact, her foster reports that she is very fast and can turn/cut/juke better than any of the dogs in her crew! Any one of these things would provide a great outlet for that drive.

Tika politely takes treats from your hand and shows no food aggression. She knows basic commands, but still has a tendency to pull every now and then. She stays off the furniture, knows how to use a doggie door, and travels well in the car. She is quiet in a crate if you are home, but does have separation anxiety when home alone. Due to her anxiety & for her safety, she must be kenneled in an Impact Crate as she is an escape artist who will stop at nothing to get out and back to her person.

Tika is an incredible dog; loving and loyal. She just wants to please her person, always at your side and a constant companion sharing all of life's adventures.

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

For more information on Tika, please contact: Jan.

Ziva, 2 yrs old, neutered male - WI

Fee: $325

Photo of Malinois Foster Ziva - 12KB

Ziva is affectionate and wants to be with people, as a matter of fact, she needs to be around people.

Ziva is a beautiful Belgian Malinois that is about 2 years old. She is spayed and current on all vaccinations. She came to us as a stray November 23rd and though she was microchipped we were unable to find her owner. She was very scared and unsure when she first came into our shelter but within a day she had calmed down and was able to be worked with her caretakers. She bonds very quickly to someone once she knows and trusts them. She is affectionate and wants to be with people, as a matter of fact, she needs to be around people. She does not want to be without companionship. She can be leery of strangers and takes time to warm up. She will alarm bark when meeting new people. She will play with a ball and bring it back to you. She is polite with her mouth but does need manners with her jumping. She has no food or rawhide issues that we know of and we have had no problems with her when taking things away.

Unfortunately, Ziva has been adopted twice and returned both times within a day or two. Both homes said she had too much energy and that they were not able to keep up with her. She did meet and play with a neighbor's dog when she was adopted the second time and did very well. It was an 80 lb. young Shepherd/Husky. The adopter said she absolutely loves to ride in the car and would lay down in the backseat and go to sleep. She did have some potty training issues in the home and seems to want to be off of leash in order to go to the bathroom so a fenced in yard would be best for her. She absolutely loves to go outside and play in the snow too. She does seem more comfortable being outside than inside we have noticed.
