The Rescues presented on this page are not part of the ABMC rescue program. Please contact ONLY the person or organization listed as the contact, for the Malinois you are interested in. The webmaster and ABMC Rescue have no additional information, on Rescues listed here, other then the profile provided with each dog. Please contact the person or organization listing the Malinois with additional questions.

ABMC is unable to provide any guarantees or information other then the profile seen here on the Alternative Sources webpage.

Are you fostering a Belgian Malinois rescued from, or facing, a life threatening situation that is not part of the ABMC Rescue program? To have your Malinois listed on the "Available thru Other Sources" page contact the website coordinator (for submitting Malinois to be included on this page only) for instructions on how to submit your Malinois' profile and photo. ALL Malinois submitted, to be included on this webpage, absolutely must be spayed or neutered. NO EXCEPTIONS! In the meantime, review the profiles listed in these pages to assist you in creating one for your rescue Malinois.

Courtesy listings are valid for 120 days! Please update and resubmit to the webmaster if additional time is needed.

While every effort is made to insure the integrity of the listings on this page the final responsibility for finalizing an adoption rests with the rescued Malinois's foster family and the adoptive family.

  • Make sure that ALL agreements are received in writing.
  • Understand the contract you will be asked to sign.
  • What innoculations, spaying/neutering, heartworm medication, health care has the Malinois received?
  • What responsibilities are being assumed, by you, the adopter.
  • What procedure will be followed if, for some reason, the adoption doesn't work out.
  • In the event that the adoption doesn't work out will the adoption fee be retained or refunded?
  • Will the foster family arrange for return of the Malinois to them or another foster family of their choice?

The above information is provided simply as a guide to help insure that your adoption is successful. Foster families can and will vary somewhat in the manner that they transfer ownership of their ward.

Nico, 14 mo old, neutered male - WA

Fee: $325

Photo of Malinois Foster Nico - 24KB

Nico is ready for adoption!

He is approximately 14mo old, 25" and almost 70# of love and enthusiasm. Nico is a moderate drive Malinois, so he is in constant motion in the house or yard, until he finally winds down for a nap or is crated. He is not destructive, and will play with other dogs or toys in the house and yard. He does not naturally seek out a thrown toy that has gone out of sight, but can be redirected until he finds it. He is currently living with 3 other dogs, 1 cat and 5 goats. He definitely would chase the goats and still stalks the resident cat. Nico has learned sit, down, wait/stay, sit at doorways and before exiting crate, come for cookies. He has learned to channel his mouthiness with targeting tugs and balls. He is housebroken, crate trained, travels well crated in the car, and sleeps quietly all night. While Nico plays hard with the resident dogs, he is also gentle with puppies and small dogs. He has been exposed to herding and been along while his foster runs errands to dog friendly stores. He remains very calm with people, but forgets all about loose leash walking when meeting new canine friends. This behavior is easily corrected as he is sweet and soft to correction. A solid, confident dog, he is completely undisturbed by loud noises and walks on any surface. He has an out with his toys, but there is still moderate amount of mouthing and clutching (with his paws). Although rare, he will seek reassurance by jumping up and "hugging" his handler. Nico is a young, exuberant Mal, full of energy and a willingness to please. He requires a home which will work his brain as well as his body. He likes food, toys and tugs, which would all work well to build drive in a variety of sports. He would be fine in home with another dog, but no cats without precautions. Because he is young, he can be clumsy, so care should be taken around small children or the elderly.


For more information on Nico, please contact: Jan.

Ravyn, 11 mos old, spayed female - Seattle, WA

Photo of Malinois Foster Ravyn - 11KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Ravyn - 11KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Ravyn - 28KB

Ravyn is an energetic, playful female who is looking for her forever family.

Petite at 48#, Ravyn is rambunctious, happy, and fun- always up for life's next adventure! Whether she is playing hide and seek with her toys, or working on her basic obedience training, Ravyn is focused and always busy. In her foster home, Ravyn has mastered a handful of commands (sit, crate, outside, inside, come here, out, off, no, climb, upstairs, downstairs and "go find your ball") and is currently working on down and shake. With continued leadership, she can overcome her intermittent reactivity towards other dogs and people. She walks nicely on a leash and is extremely athletic, making her an ideal candidate for a very active home.

A striking black Malinois, Ravyn loves to be a part of a family. While she has been with three human children in her foster home, she tends to be wary of quick movements, so Ravyn would be more comfortable in a home with dog-savvy children over twelve years of age. Brave and curious, Ravyn has gotten along well with her two foster siblings, both adult male shepherds. While she initially presents herself as a dominant female, Ravyn is quick to retreat to a less dominant position and will respect an existing dominance hierarchy in a home. Because she tends to steal toys from other dogs and her initially dominant presence can be misinterpreted, Ravyn is best suited for a home with male siblings.

Although Ravyn is young, at around 11 months old, she is fully house trained and does well with a structured daily routine and can be left in her crate for a few hours at a time. At night, Ravyn sleeps quietly in her crate. With recent 4th of July celebrations, she remained focused and un-phased by the bright lights and loud noises. With her busy nature, Ravyn would be best suited for a family who could engage, focus and mold her endless energy in a positive way. Whether it be hiking, daily jogs in the park, or agility, little Ravyn is up for the challenge! Contact the Woof Project today to learn more about this very unique and special girl.

Photo of Malinois Foster Razor - 14KB

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, 5.5 yr old, neutered male - NC

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.

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.

Vader, 5 mos old, neutered male - CA

Fee: $400
Photo of Malinois Foster Vader - 9KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Vader - 10KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Vader - 19KB

Vader is a 5-month-old male Malinois that is full of spark!

His engagement is INCREDIBLE, a great side effect of his handler focus, and it will allow him to be trained in nearly anything. He would benefit from activities where he needs to learn to work away from his handler so that he can continue to build confidence, but he would thrive in many sports. He is very food motivated, has medium prey drive that can continue to be built, and is toy motivated. He has enough energy to keep up with a very active family and he needs to be tired out daily to prevent unproductive behaviors from developing.

Vader has come a long way since he's been in rescue. His foster has been working diligently to give him plenty of positive experiences and Vader has made wonderful progress. He will now go into a crate/ex-pen/kennel (backwards) with no problems. We're still working on him going in forwards, with ease. He still won't follow or chase food or toys into the crate but he will be at that point soon. Once he's in the crate, he's settled and quiet; he only pipes up when he needs a potty break.

Redirecting his mouth off of bodies and onto food and toys was a challenge but he's getting it. His owner/s will need to have food and toys most of the time, for awhile, so that he can continue learning to keep his focus redirected in a constructive way. In tug play, he still occasionally drops the toy and goes for his favorite person, so be ready to make that toy move and catch his attention!

Vader is, genetically, a one-person dog and his family will need to work to make sure that he can take direction and guidance from everyone in in the family. He also needs continued exposure to people so that he can remain neutral and not be suspicious of everyone.

We've had him working with different people, with and without his foster around, to build his confidence. Vader has been great on this front. His family will also need to be very mindful to leave him alone thoughtfully and regularly to prevent him from developing separation anxiety. If he develops intense separation anxiety, he will be a major danger to himself.

When he came into foster, he had a zero tolerance policy for playful shenanigans from other dogs, especially puppies. But with exposure and making friends, his threshold has increased and he's now very tolerant and enjoys the company of other dogs. He will likely remain primarily dog neutral. Vader will require an experienced Malinois adopter.


For more information on Vader, please contact: Jan.
