AR, KS, MO, NM, OK, TX


No rescues currently ready for adoption in the South Central area. Please visit one of the other regions, see listings in the left column, to find an appropriate Malinois and file an application.

A NOTE TO POLICE OFFICERS, SAR GROUPS
AND OTHERS LOOKING FOR WORKING MALINOIS:

Many police officers/trainers/SAR groups approach Malinois rescue looking for young dogs to train. Most of our rescued dogs are not suitable for these types of jobs. Some of our rescued Malinois are actually dogs that have been rejected by police departments due to their inability to do the job. While we are not opposed to adopting dogs out as working dogs, we adopt only to individuals, never to organizations or police departments. Most of our rescued Malinois have had difficult beginnings in life. The majority will make fantastic family pets, but most of them do not have the temperament needed to work day after day with a police officer or in search and rescue. All dogs adopted through Malinois rescue will be spayed or neutered prior to placement.




Bella 18 month old spayed female - TX

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Bella - 22KB
Malinois Foster Bella - 29KB

Bella -- just wants to love, love, love you!

This is a very active girl who loves to run and leap and play!

Bella is NOT submissive or soft! Let's put it this way - today Bella put her head though a hole in a cyclone fence gate, and pulled the gate off its hinges. The gate fell on top of her, but she managed to free herself and still found a way to reach me which was her goal the whole time! She can be very determined, yet her real goal is to just be with a person. Bella is very sweet and wants to love, love, love you!

Bella is missing all of her pre-molars and her vet says that she never had any. Even without those teeth she likes to mouth and she hasn't yet learned to be gentle when she does. She also needs serious manner training -- she'll jump on you to get your attention.

Bella has so much potential. If you have the time to work with her, Bella can become a very happy, wonderful dog!

For more information about Bella, please contact: Penny

If you want to apply for this dog, click Bella's Adoption Application which will automatically be sent to Penny, Bella's coordinator.

Malinois Foster Glory - 23KB

Glory came in sensitive and afraid of everything and although is still sensitive to loud noises she has turned a 180

She isn't afraid of new people anymore, she's been taken to many environments and done great! Was unsure of water at first but still jumped around in it, has been to hardware stores, parks, businesses, stores, etc and is great on a leash while doing so, also good at ignoring people!

She is starting to act more like a Mal with her derp moments, she is good with other dogs, also with kids (6 years old, 9 months old has been tested) (still waiting to test cats, or horses etc) she just now got to the point where I've earned trust and can start working her ob. Only has two sessions with her and she will sit, down, and recall (in German).

Glory is GORGEOUS! Super social, very lovable and likes to cuddle up to you, pretty low toy drive but high food drive!

She came in at 38 lbs and currently 45lbs and very healthy!

Jasper 4 yr old neutered male - OK

Malinois Foster Jasper - 21KB

Jasper is a 4 year old boy rescued from a hoarding situation in Arkansas.

He is being fostered in Oklahoma City with a Golden Retriever and 4 English Bulldogs. When Jasper entered the ABMR program he had not been inside a home and he had not had a lot of human contact.

Jasper gets along with all dogs and while he will let out a bark or growl if he feels threatened he has no interest in fighting and will run to his crate if he believes the other dog wants a fight. He is crate trained and will need a crate for a safety zone. He likes to go and relax in his crate and he runs there when he is frightened or feels threatened. Jasper LOVES to play! He will play for hours with his foster brothers until they all collapse in a heap in the floor and take a nap together.

We believe Jasper had to fight for food so he prefers to eat in his crate. This is his choice and he will run into his crate and wait patiently for his bowl when he sees you bringing out the food. He will occasionally guard his bowl in the crate if he feels another dog is trying to take the bowl, but most days pays little attention to a passing dog while he eats. He has no tendencies to guard his bowl from a person. He takes food gently from your hand and loves cookies and treats.

Jasper is a hoarder! He hoards toys, blankets, towels, and dirty clothes! Missing a pair of socks? Check Jasper's crate! He is quite comical when he goes into stealth mode to steal your clothes. And, the towel you wrapped around yourself stepping out of the shower? He will take that directly from your body! He loves soft stuffed toys, but does not like the squeaker. He cuddles with teddy bears tucked under his chin when he sleeps. His foster mom has tried to get pictures, but he always wakes up and moves before she can snap the picture.

Jasper is still getting used to touch. His foster mom has to play games with him to get him close enough to hug. He acts like he is in trouble when you hug him, but then he gets so excited when you let go, he dances around in circles. He is figuring out he enjoys being touched, petted, and scratched and will often times come back for a second round of touch!

Jasper is working on his house training and with the exception of 2 or 3 accidents is almost there. He came to ABMR severely underweight and is now up to 61 pounds. He is learning commands such as "settle" and "sit". Jasper is SUPER SMART! He learns new commands and tricks quickly, sometimes in as little as one day. He is very routine driven and will try to anticipate your next move. Jasper would be a great addition to any active family who likes to hike or run, and doesn't mind a little Jester in the house.

For more information about Jasper, please contact: Marcia

Juliet 2 year old spayed female - TX

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Juliet - 32KB
Malinois Foster Juliet - 32KB

Juliet -- ready to be your special girl!

Juliet is a sweet playful girl who is house trained, good in a kennel or crate, rides in a car well and is just looking for someone to love her!

She gets along with small dogs and gets along well with other larger male dogs who don't mind her playing rough with them. She does learn to ease off of rough play when the other dog tells her to. She loves to play in water and has moderate drive (for a Malinois!).

She is about two years old and wouldn't take long to become someone's special girl!

For more information about Juliet, please contact: Penny.

Maverick 2-3 yr old neutered male - MO

Fee: $275

Malinois Foster Maverick - 24KB

What a sweet, loving, boy who doesn't know his own strength!

Maverick wants to be in your lap, but is content to just put his head in your lap while you pet him. He loves to play with other dogs or people. Maverick is learning to play "fetch" and does bring things back to you, but sometimes goes beyond where you want him to be, with a smile and catch me if you can look. *sidenote: Mav will NEVER turn down a good game of tug :)

Maverick knows what "NO" means and responds appropriately. In daily life Mav is a house rockstar. He is learning that counters, furniture are not his (pshhhhh....unless I leave the room and then he's 007). Quick movements or items in your hands like a broom or dusting stick concern Mav, however, he is not rude about it, and simply moves away very quickly! We continue to go about our days normal and Maverick continues to adjust and learn that the vacuum, duster, etc are all necessities with keeping the house dog "worthy".

Through the Thanksgiving Holiday, there was a lot of cooking going on and the house was filled with people (adults and children) - continuous comotion. Again, Mav was a gentleman and when uncomfortable simple left the room. It is important to note that he absolutely loved all the people and asked for attention, but too much commotion made Maverick look for a quiet spot. One of the great things about him is that as he is around uncomfortable situations he continues to improve so we fully expect that he will become very flexible and accommodating within short order!

Maverick has not met a dog he did not like! Young, old, irritating, playful, annoying, etc he seems to find a sweet spot in them all and works within any pack. With the ladies he definitely swoons!

Mav is good with children, however, very observant. He is more comfortable with children of age that understand commands and behavior and can direct him. He is in contact with two 8 year olds and a 4 year old on a regular basis and is more comfortable with the 8 year olds and up. The 4 year old he is still trying to figure out (mind you very politely).

Maverick still "has the need for speed" when he eats. From his condition when brought into ABMR care, it was obvious he was under fed and always hungry so when the food came, he just gulped it. Feeding him by hand and using treats are beneficial as he is learning to chew, slow down and breath. Maverick still eats fast but improving daily as he learns that meals and water are ALWAYS available to him. Maverick has not displayed any food aggression and rather seems calmed by eating with others. Currently he eats daily in a 10x12 foot area with 2 other dogs (one Mal and one lovely geriatric Golden Retriever).

One of Maverick's greatest qualities is how he seems to enjoy everything he does, eat, sleep, walk, play, just being around people, etc and that he improves as each situation presents itself.

Mav is an amazing gentleman. We laugh and call him the bull in the china cabinet, however, his only goal is to please and be near you. Mav continues to learn daily, his endearing nature makes it almost impossible to be disappointed with him (note I said almost - he is large and forgets himself at times).

Samantha Super Sweet Girl Looking For A Better Life

Sam has been a fabulous surprise - She is incredibly friendly, outgoing and curious. We have been amazed at her adoration for all people especially considering her circumstances, injuries and neglect from her previous life. She has been exposed consistently to children ages 4 to 8 and absolutely adores them as they do her. Sam has met a variety of adults at the family farm as well as her walks through the neighborhood and always greets with a wagging tail and charismatic "hello". She is very eager to please and get all the love she can easily return, without hesitation.

Sam's training is coming along nicely and after a walk or some exercise is most able to concentrate. She has a solid "sit", walks nicely on lead, good basic recall and is working on her "down". The kids have taught her "fives" which she eagerly provides for treats and rubs.

Sam is good in her kennel and politely "goes to bed", however, is an early riser and an absolute alarm clock. We are still working on patience past 5 a.m. As well, when I run errands she is kenneled and does very well, only barking when she hears me enter the house. Around the house she is learning her manners (i.e. no getting on counters, furniture, digging in trash, begging, chewing on anything but a toy, patience with meals, wait at doors). She will alert bark if someone comes to the door, drives up, etc, however, quickly silences when asked and is eager to see who could be at the door. She is getting much better at riding in the car outside of the kennel and recently began laying down and gazing out the windows :) Storms seem to cause some anxiety, however, in a house full of animals unfazed she is following suit and calming a bit more each time.

Overall, Sam is coming out of her shell, learning to play with toys, attempting fetch and working on her manners with her human and animal company. Sam is good with dogs, however, does best with time for a proper introduction to new dogs. She is very playful and simply lacks some social skills. At times she can become confused in play with other dogs (especially smaller dogs), however, under supervision she is very good and takes any correction well.

I would not recommend Sam left unsupervised with small dogs or animals currently but truly believe this will pass quickly as she continues to meet and greet.

For more information about Samantha, please contact: Taylor
