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.
Jill is a lively fun loving girl who loves to get belly rubs and give kisses. She needs a very active family as she is ball crazy and loves the frisbee. She had a previous injury before coming into ABMC rescue, a fractured pelvis, which has left her pelvis not aligned correctly and when she runs she has a funny gait. Sometimes when she runs you can see the funny gait but that doesn’t slow her down. Jill loves to run and play and would make a wonderful active companion. She needs to be the only dog in the family and no cats. Her furever home needs a good fence. If somebody is playing ball or with a frisbee outside her yard she will try and jump the fence. Jill loves humans and older children would be fine.
She is approximately 2 years old, up to date on her shots, spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative and semi-house broken.
Jill does need to work on her indoor manners! We are also working on walking on a leash. She is strong and pulls very hard.
Jill is looking for a home that she can be a special companion!

Romeo is a SUPER sweet active guy who is looking for his furever home!
Romeo is approximately 6 years old, neutered, up to date on vaccines and heart worm prevention.
This fantastic guy lives for 3 things, water, tennis balls and love! Romeo is happiest relaxing in the kiddie pool with his ever present tennis ball. He loves to play fetch and will do so until your arm gives out! He knows basic obedience commands and is happy to show off!
He is great with other dogs, and likes to play chase. When introduced to other dogs he takes a very short amount of time to become comfortable with them and will solicit play almost immediately.
He loves to play in water, if the garden hose is on watch out! He enjoys biting the water and will even carry the hose around spraying everything if given the opportunity. He likes to drop his ball in the kiddie pool and splash around trying to get it back out.
He can be a bit protective when he is in his crate, but it is all talk. If someone he doesn't know walks by he will bark, and growl. We are working on this behavior, and he is getting better everyday. He is quiet in his crate at home, he only displays this behavior when in the crate in the vehicle.
He is very good in the house and knows that the super active play is done outside, but make sure the bathroom door is shut while in the shower or bath. If you don't Romeo has no problem joining you.
He is very good about going to the door when he needs to go out, and if you don't notice him standing by the door he will bark and let you know he needs to go out.
Romeo like most Malinois can be a bit cautious with people he doesn't know. Introductions to new people should be done with his ball and then he becomes your best friend.
Romeo has been introduced to children, but caution must be taken since he can get "bouncy" if he has his ball. He would do best in a home with older children that he can't knock down.
Romeo lived with a cat, but he does have a LOT of prey drive, so a home without cats would be best.
If you can't live without this handsome boy please fill out an Application.

Tre would be a wonderful, healthy and active, addition to your family.
Tre came into rescue after being hit by a car and left on the side of the road. He had to have a front leg amputated and his larynx was crushed, cuts and bruises. Tre wears a harness until his larynx heals so there isn't any pulling on his neck.. He doesn't miss his leg one bit and can get around just as fast if not faster than a dog with 4 legs!
Tre is a loving boy who wants to please. He is very strong and highly prey driven so no cats or small dogs. He likes toys and is good with other big dogs. I would recommend a home without small children because he accidentally runs into things occasionally because his brakes don't work as well with 3 legs! He is eager to learn and loves to swim in our pool with assistance for short periods of time. He cannot be around a large body of water unattended because he loves water so much he will get in and be unable to get out-- he has dived into our pool with me present several times because he loves to swim. I have to help him out. A potential owner would have to keep him fit to ensure no extra weight on his only front leg. He is a happy go lucky boy who also loves walks, chore time, playing with other big dogs, and swimming!
Tre is current on all vaccines, neutered and microchipped.
