Ponch, 5-6 yrs old, neutered male - Corona, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Ponch - 19KB

Ponch has a very stable temperament and is a predictable and loving dog.

Ponch is a 5-6 year old, neutered Belgian Malinois. He weighs about 50 pounds and stands 22" at the withers. Ponch has a very stable temperament and is a predictable and loving dog. He's easy to live with as he really just wants to be your buddy. He doesn't get into things he shouldn't be getting into. Instead, he would rather lay at your feet, be by your side or lying within eye shot.

Ponch's favorite pastime is being with his person. He'll follow you around the house but not in an under-foot kind of way. He likes the proximity of being around his people and will give kisses when given the opportunity. Ponch is a Malinois, however, and when the zoomies hit, he loves a gallop through the house. He will bark when a new person enters the house but quiets quickly. He has a tendency to jump up and put his paws on someone to say hello. This is being dissuaded by his foster. Ponch isn't much into toys and is not destructive to items in the home. The one thing he chewed was the bed in his crate.

Ponch is very easy to train. His pack drive is such that he wants to be with and please his person. Even though he doesn't know a lot of commands (sit, wait and comes on recall) he hasn't shown that he really needs them as he is polite and respectful. He has learned a wait for eating, entering and exiting the house and/or his crate. He loads up easily into the crate in the car and lays down ready for the ride.

Ponch has been exposed to retail dog wash and their strong blow dryer (doesn't particularly care for having his feet blown dry). He sits nicely for the dremel for his nails and isn't bothered by shopping carts or the lawn mower. Ponch attended a weekend of agility trials and did very well with the stimulation. He barked at some of the dogs passing by but once his crate was covered up, he settled in and took a nap. Ponch has also been to the big box pet stores and was unphased by the commotions. He will startle and notice unexpected, loud, sharp noises but recovers quickly.

Ponch is sweet, attentive, gentle, loving and beautiful. Ponch is very affectionate and wants to be loved. He's not prey driven. He enjoys playing chase with his foster as he really just loves the interaction with his person. Ponch can be reactive to the busy-ness and/or barking of other dogs. His foster has three small dogs. They will get him riled up though with their barking and he will happily join in on the noise making. He calls off easily enough but mostly ignores the smaller dogs. Ponch has not been tested with cats or kids.

Ponch is good on a leash but might pull a bit. Foster is working on this with him. He's great in a car (loves to go for rides), and doesn't bark. Poncho is also good at the vet office. Poncho doesn't mind being handled and accepts vaccinations with ease. Ponch will dig in the backyard and again, his foster is working to dissuade this behavior.

When Ponch is happy, he wags his tail and looks at you intently. When he gets worried he puts his ears back. He wears his emotions on his sleeve. What you see is what you get with Ponch.

Poncho might be good at nose work, rally or agility. His ideal home would be where Poncho could be with his person, enjoy some yard/run around time and be with someone who would take him for walks and hikes. He wants to be your pal.

Quinn, 2 yrs old, spayed female - Fairfield, CA

Fee: $325
Photo of Malinois Foster Quinn - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Quinn - 18KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Quinn - 26KB

Quinn is a riot to live with – she, like many Malinois', has no DIMMER SWITCH

Quinn is a 2 year old, agile, 64-pound female Mal. She has immaculate teeth. Quinn is a riot to live with – she, like many Malinois', has no "dimmer switch," in that she is either all-on, or all-off. She tears around corners, races after her ball, and skids to stops. She has done wonderfully learning how to "wait" to come in and leave her crate, although she does not care much for it.

Quinn lives for chasing her ball. As you pick it up, she immediately play bows and starts clacking those Malinois teeth. She'll chase balls of any shape, size, or texture – she does not discriminate. Quinn doesn't have the focus to stay on task while 'hunting' for her ball- she loves to play with, run and chase after it but workable hunt drive is not present. Quinn is also an excellent decorator and will not hesitate to rework your room if she feels like you got it wrong. That pillow that you have on the couch? Quinn will happily relocate it to below the TV cabinet. Those shoes in your closet? Those belong on your kitchen chair. She doesn't destroy these things, rather she just relocates.

Quinn is learning how to walk on a leash while minding her manners. She no longer pulls, and although is not yet in a perfect "heel," she is getting there. Once you have Quinn's loyalty and trust, she loves to please you, and tries hard to walk like a lady. She is also wonderful at the vet's office, and is adored by every staff member she has ever met. Although she is extremely dramatic about any "procedure" (including nail trimming), she forgives quickly, especially when treats are involved.

Quinn is destined to be an only dog, unless she has an owner that has experience with dog reactivity. Quinn was likely not raised around, or exposed to, other dogs at a young age, and becomes highly amped when she sees them. Accordingly, she is always on leash and muzzled when she's around other dogs as she has not gotten to the place where she is entirely safe around around dogs, especially female dogs. She is getting better, as she has been under the guidance of a very experienced, Malinois savvy trainer, but will need continued work in this area if you want to have her around other animals. Adopter should be familiar and comfortable with using an e-collar.

In contrast to her reaction to other dogs, Quinn absolutely loves people – any shape, any size, any gender, any age. She is a complete love with humans, and they love her right back. She is happy to give kisses (and is learning not to try and jump into everyone's arms) and will happily dance with you, if given the chance.

Quinn is wonderful in her crate, and sleeps the night away without making a peep. She has an insane vertical leap, and can scale a 6-foot fence without batting an eye. Accordingly, Quinn's foster family has never left her in their yard unsupervised. Quinn is still learning a recall. While she is not yet the type of dog you can let off-leash in a meadow and expect her to return – she will turn up months later in Minnesota, a bit tired, but ready for a new adventure. When she is unsupervised outside, she is in a large kennel with an attached roof, to keep her safe and secure.

The only thing Quinn loves more than chasing her ball and loving her people is food. This girl lives for meal time and is moderately food-motivated for work.

Quinn's ideal home is one without other animals, with lots of available love and affection. She adores being around her people, even if they are working on something else, and she is happy to just hang out on her bed with a bone. Her ideal home would have a fenced, secure space where she can chase after the balls that you throw for hours at a time. She will happily defend you from evil vacuums and brooms, and never barks when someone is at the door.

Quinn will be one of the most loving dogs you've ever owned. She tends to build trust with people very quickly and the reward of this girl's love is invaluable.

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

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

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

Photo of Malinois Foster Romeo - 24KB

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.

Pocket Rocket for Adoption in Amhurst, Ohio: Sophie is a 7 month old playful and active Malinois Mix.

She had been taken from a neglectful situation and is working with a trainer and making amazing progress! She is now ready for her forever home with someone who will give her the exercise and continued training that all Malinois need!

She is smart and eager to please. She is friendly and good with other dogs, large and small, and people including children, although older kids are recommended.

In her initial foster home, she was non-reactive to the cats although careful introductions and supervision is always necessary.

A fenced in yard recommended for her. Sophie is spayed, has a previously docked tail and is about 29lbs. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and heartworm negative.

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.
