Piper, 5 mos old, spayed female - CA

Fee: $400

Photo of Malinois Foster Piper - 18KB

Piper is a pouncy and energetic 5 month old female Malinois who will keep you on your toes.

She is what you would expect in a Mal pup: engaging, feisty, inquisitive, vocal and mouthy…but also affectionate and willing to please. Piper lives with a 12 year old child and a 2 year old male Malinois, both of whom she loves to play with. She will play non-stop rough-house games with the resident dog and is learning appropriate dog-to- dog behavior from him. She enjoys the company of other social dogs and would do well in a home with one that is tolerant of puppy antics.

Piper is very food motivated. Early on, she tended to guard her food and treats, but she is doing much better with daily trust building exercises. She is eager to please and is starting to present behaviors on her own for a treat (such as sitting without being told to). She goes into her crate or exercise pen willingly for a treat (using the word "kennel" for both), and she is learning more self-control with "down," "wait" and "leave it." She has medium toy and prey drive at this point, but we see indicators that lead us to believe her drive could be built in these areas as her confidence grows. True to her Malinois genes, Piper is already athletic and agile. She needs an active family that can provide appropriate physical exercise daily. She zooms around the backyard at her foster home, fetches toys & sticks, and likes water. She readily jumps onto the first step of the backyard pool and will likely be a good swimmer. She is often "nose to the ground" and may be a candidate for nose work. It will be important to implement boundaries for this puppy, though, to teach her that yard walls and couches are not to be jumped over in a single bound.

Environmentally, Piper is very stable. She has experienced a number of settings, terrains, ground surfaces, and noises without showing any hesitation. She has met friendly strangers (kids/adults) in public settings – as well as in the home when visitors arrive – and she has been friendly and engaging to all of these new people. She sometimes approaches new people demurely, but warms up quickly with friendly interactions. She is doing great with potty training and hasn't had an accident in the house, crate, or ex-pen for many weeks. In fact, she will often bark loudly to let you know that she needs to go outside, and will run to the back door when released from her pen/crate. She still goes outside on a leash for potty breaks, both to keep her focused on that task and because (like most young pups) she often tries to eat anything that fits her in mouth. Once put into her crate, she usually settles down quickly and will quietly rest/sleep for long nap sessions (and usually all night long). She is sassy, loud, and opinionated like many Mal puppies, but she is continuing to work on house manners such as to sit quietly before being fed or being let out of her pen, that she is not allowed on the couch unless invited, and that unwarranted barking does not earn her release from the crate (her new family will need to be mindful of the last potty break as barking could indicate her need for that).

Piper is mouthy so don't be surprised if she bites, chews and snatches things she shouldn't –including human hands and clothing. She sometimes tries to play with humans the way she plays with dogs, so it's important to help her learn acceptable play/mouth behavior with people. She is being gently taught to redirect her mouth to her toys, but this will be on-going work with her for the time-being. Her owners will need to be prepared at all times with toys and food to help redirect her to more appropriate chew options. Overall, Piper is a confident and potentially very dominant young dog that could do a number of future activities.

Considering that she is an opinionated female that is showing dominance traits, Piper will require a Malinois savvy home with experienced leadership, boundaries, patience, training, trust building, and appropriate handling skills to manage her very typical Mal temperament. Ideally, her new home will not have small children.

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.

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.

Vader, 5 mos old, neutered male - CA

Fee: $400

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.
