Phoebe, 18 mo old, spayed female - NY

Photo of Malinois Foster Phoebe - 12KB Photo of Malinois Foster Phoebe - 12KB

Phoebe is energetic and athletic

As per her owner: we adopted Phoebe when she was 5 months old. We were looking for a dog to be a friend to our handicapped teenage daughter. A year later we realize that she's not the right dog for us. She is energetic and athletic and not the kind of pup who wants to hang out with our slow-moving daughter.

Phoebe loves to run, catch balls and Frisbees, do tug of war, and play at the dog park. She loves going on walks and would enjoy accompanying a jogger or runner. She is extremely smart, a fast learner, and loves mental challenges.

We have successfully trained Phoebe in some areas but she needs more training. She lies down and sits on command. She doesn't have good recall but if we have a ball or tug toy, she comes running!

Phoebe likes napping on her dog bed or curled up on the couch next to us. She loves having her tummy rubbed.

Phoebe is used to living with a cat. We don't recommend a house with small children. We are teaching Phoebe not to jump on people but we worry that she could knock a small child down if she's really excited. Phoebe weighs 60 pounds. She is spayed, in good health and up to date on her shots. She is a beautiful, loveable dog.

Ringo, 2 yr old, neutered Male - PA

Photo of Malinois Foster Ringo - 16KB Photo of Malinois Foster Ringo - 12KB

Ringo is a 2 year old neutered male Belgian Malinois that I have owned since he was a puppy

He was purchased from a breeder in MD. He was about 63 lbs the last time he was taken to the vet and is current on all vaccinations as well as heart worm and he has been microchipped.

Ringo like all Mals is a very energetic dog with a very loving personality. As soon as some of his energy gets burned off through exercise or play all he wants to do is cuddle with his family. Ringo is trained in basic commands and is also well behaved on a leash. He is crate trained and is not yet allowed to be in the house on his own. He is the perfect companion on long runs and always pushes you too keep the pace up.

Over anything else Ringo loves to be walked just to be able to see new sights and sounds and is a favorite of all the neighbors in my area. He has always been naturally vigilant and there was never a doubt in my mind that in a worst case scenario he would keep my home and family safe from anything that may have come up. Due to his energy level I would not recommend him to be around small children at this point but it is something that could be addressed with training. He has never gotten along with other dogs all that well in the past but during weekly training he can work in their company in shared training space.

Unfortunately for Ringo I have separated from my wife and being Active Duty in the Army I will not be able to give him the kind of exercise and attention that he truly deserves. It really kills me to be losing him but he needs a loving family to take care of him. My current lease is up Mid-July and I have to find a home for him by then. Thank you for reading about Ringo, please feel free to email me with any questions regarding an adoption.

For more information on Ringo, please contact: Martin.

Roux, 3 mos old, 2-b-spayed female - San Jose, CA

Fee: $400

Roux is a typical Malinois, she has been meeting new people and is quite social

This is Roulette, aka "Roux", a 3 months old female Malinois. She is a typical Malinois and ready to take on the world. She has been meeting new people and is quite social. She has been exposed to a variety of situations which she handles quite well, such as Starbucks, the Post Office Home Depot, Target and the fire and police stations. Heavy emphasis has been on plenty of positive experiences and socialization that will need to continue as she matures.

People show her kindness and she is affectionate in return. She is a confident young pup who will mature into a strong, confident female that will require savvy, Mal experienced leadership and proper handling skills to manage her typical Malinois temperament. She is a stable pup who should grow up to be capable of doing many activities with enthusiasm.

Typical Malinois, she is very smart and already know how to sit, lay down, 'leave' a treat and recently learned to 'stay' for about 30 seconds - in puppy time that's FOREVER! She is crate trained and good in the house. Her foster family has a cat and and getting along fine with her. She is also living with other Malinois and learning much from them.

She can be very attentive and focused and open to learning and new challenges. Roux will be spayed prior to adoption.


For more information on Roux, please contact: Jan.

Roy, approx 3 yr old, neutered male - OR

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Roy - 37KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Roy - 33KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Roy - 28KB

Big boy, Roy, is around 3 years old, neutered and wise beyond his years.

He is just over 75 pounds but is currently on a diet/exercise program to trim him down a bit. He would make a great dog for someone wanting a Malinois that offers some of the fun but also an 'off' switch. He crates well, appears housebroken and overall is a quieter Malinois. He can offer you a little fun with a very intense game of tug and a willingness to retrieve a toy time after time. Roy is also quite content snuggling up for belly rubs and brushings.

Although he isn't a high strung/always on the go kind of dog, he would do best with someone who isn't afraid to tell him to 'knock it off' if he starts getting bossy. Roy is willing to follow a strong leader. A boarding kennel or situation with a new environment and new people handling him is not recommended. He would do best in a well fitting muzzle for anything restrained, especially at the vet.

Roy isn't phased by loud noises, planes, trains, trucks, etc but sirens and some lawn equipment will cause some barking. He is easily settled. He is working on his obedience although isn't a strong puller on leash and heels well with treats. He has been exposed to medium to large size dogs and might do well with a playful female companion. He can be bossy with other dogs, but just like people, if they will put him in his place, he tends to quickly respect them. He has had limited exposure to a dog savvy cat with little response and has been around respectful children and although doesn't seem overly aroused by them, might do best where their interaction was limited and in a controlled setting.

Overall Roy is an easy dog to live with. He needs someone who will continue his training and offer some consistency. He will return that favor and be your loyal, loving companion.


For more information on Roy, please contact: Jan.

Santana, 4-5 yr old, spayed female - Broward/Palm Beach County, FL

Santana is an extremely happy, joyous dog with boundless energy. She LIVES to play with her 'person' (or 'people').

Santana is a very sweet, very friendly, 4- to 5-year-old female Malinois (approx. 58 lbs.). We believe she is pure Mal, but cannot verify (there are no papers). She was a stray adopted from the county shelter, who advertised her as a shepherd mix.

Santana lived for three years with a family that also had a small, older terrier. The two dogs did not get along and eventually the situation put the smaller dog at risk. This is the only reason she is being rehomed, as her owners are desperately in love with her and just want to do the best thing for her.

Santana plays well with medium/large dogs who can handle/match her high energy. She cannot be in a home with small dogs, cats, or other small animals. She also has a strong prey drive and will fixate on any squirrels, ducks, opossums, etc. that cross her path.

Santana is an extremely happy, joyous dog with boundless energy. She LIVES to play with her 'person' (or 'people'). Tug is her favorite - she will bring you her tug toy first thing when she wakes up, and greet you at the door with it in her mouth. She LOVES people and believes everyone exists to play with her. She has never shown aggression toward any human, though we have no doubt she would defend her family if the situation ever called for it. She would be ideal for an active individual who wants a high-energy dog as a best friend and companion.

She knows basic commands (sit, down, stay) and has been working on impulse control (she now waits for a release command to eat and sits/stays before stepping outside for walk). She responds very well to training with both treats and toys. She can be left home alone for several hours, uncrated, and will not chew, raid the trash, or be destructive in any way. She's not so great in the car, as she is reactive to the traffic around her. She can also be reactive on walks especially to loud/large trucks driving by, and the occasional bicycle or skateboard, though she has gotten much better with that. She can be difficult to walk at times (she pulls and wants to chase), and could benefit from more consistent exercise and some professional training. Her previous owner is willing to pay for a session or two.

Santana is loved deeply by her previous family and her foster family. We are working together to find her the perfect forever home. We will require a home check and a vet reference, along with a written agreement that she will be returned to us, and only us, should the placement not work out or something comes up unexpectedly in the future. We would prefer to keep her in South Florida (ideally Broward/Palm Beach or adjoining counties) so that we can easily do the home check, stay in touch and take her back if necessary (and even dog-sit when and if needed ?). We would prefer to place her with a previous Mal/shepherd owner with some experience handling reactivity issues, or at least a willingness to work with a trainer to address it the right way.

Santana is a joy of a dog, and is very special to us. We can arrange to introduce her to another dog in a public place and are willing to schedule a series of home visits if necessary to make sure it's a fit with another dog or family.

For more information on Santana, please contact: Patricia at 954-304-4485 or Priscilla at 954-803-9016.

Taylor, 2-3 yr old, neutered male - WI

Photo of Malinois Foster Taylor - 18KB

Taylor plays well with other dogs of all sizes. Currently a Walker mix, a Pittie, and a Frenchie.

Taylor is a nice young male...maybe 2 or 3 years old. Very bulky guy...even considering he's probably 10 lbs overweight, he weighs 71 lbs. One ear is tipped but capable of being upright. I'll call him a light fawn...he might be a grey.

Behaviorally, he plays well with other dogs of all sizes (current dog friends include a Walker mix, a Pittie, and a Frenchie) and is capable of taking a break while playing. With me he was friendly, leaned for petting, not a licker, no jumping, totally relaxed. He *had* a play session earlier in the afternoon and they assured me he's quite capable of leaping to face level when he's feeling energetic...but he seems to have or be developing some nice settling skills.

He's been there for exactly one month...someone dumped him near a rural dog park and he was picked up as a stray there. What they saw in their early assessment includes stiffening on the "safe hug" (but nothing more) and a general dislike of having someone in his face/space for leashing, so for that reason he wears a gentle leader at all times out of the kennel (and tolerates that). He submissive pees when people go to reach for his collar, no aggression or guarding behavior.

The behavior evaluator said that while socially he's much more relaxed and accepting of strangers than when he arrived, he's getting depressed in a kennel situation. They're trying to manage that with play dates.
