See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the Southeast area of the country. If you are interested in adopting one of the Malinois profiled in these pages contact the foster home listed in the profile.


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.

Angel 1.5-2 yr old spayed female - FL

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Angel - 18KB

Angel is a beautiful girlie, who was found in a shelter in south Florida with a litter of 10 puppies who were less than 2 weeks old at the time.

Angel was fostered with her puppies and was a wonderful mom. She stayed in with them until they were all placed and now is ready for a home of her own. Even around her pups she was always good with her foster mom. In fact the first night that she was there she got her foot caught in some shelving and was not only stuck but in pain. Even in that brand new environment she allowed her foster mom to turn her around to help free her foot which allowed her to get back to her pups.

Angel gets along with other dogs her size, is still very playful, and plays hard. Her playing style is not for the weak of heart, but the dogs she plays with LOVE HER and she is a ton of fun.

She will cuddle and lean in to you, and is starting some obedience training with her new foster mom Vicki.

She is easy to work with and train. She is very sensitive and will do very poorly with a heavy hand. She has an old injury on her back rear leg from the hock down. It doesn't slow her down, but it gives you an indication of the hard life she had before coming into rescue. She likes everyone but she really lights up and is especially interested in pleasing men.

As with most Malinois, no cats, no tiny dogs, and recommend no children (maybe teenagers). Angel is a special dog who will win your heart if given the chance she deserves.

Asher 2.5 yr old neutered male - GA

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Asher - 8KB
Malinois Foster Asher - 8KB
Malinois Foster Asher - 19KB
Malinois Foster Asher - 21KB

Asher is a striking male estimated as 2.5 years old.

Asher is a typical Malinois, who is intense and will need an experienced handler. He does not do well loose or unattended. He will amuse himself by tearing things up in a heartbeat. We have been working on this!

We have been working on obedience and his basic obedience is nice. I believe he could get his Rally Novice title, but he may not have the stability for off leash work. He LOVES to play ball and retrieve and will drop it at your feet. Once he bonds with you, his recall is very good.

He has a very high prey drive and cannot be trusted around small dogs and absolutely NO cats. He likes kids but is very mouthy, so should not be unattended around small children – he is not trustworthy around small ones.

He loves to herd and is controllable around livestock. He has been on sheep and loves it. He is has also been around horses with no issues.

He is still very wary of some strangers, something else we have been working on. Continuing with his obedience training will be essential.

He is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on shots.

Dixie 4-5 yr old spayed female - LA

Fee: $275
Malinois Foster Dixie - 18KB
Malinois Foster Dixie - 13KB
Malinois Foster Dixie - 14KB

Dixie is a very good girl! She knows commands such as sit, stay, come.

She always needs us to have a little patience with her she does not respond quickly but with a little encouragement she will do as we ask. She loves to go for car rides and loves going out front off the leash. She loves to run and explore! She likes to give kisses and cuddle even though her cuddling is a little unusual she buries her head in you almost as if she is standing on her head. We call it her giving us hugs. She has one missing fang and a few other missing teeth. It does not stop her from eating anything. She is fed Purina One Lamb and Rice formula twice a day.

The only problems we have are her jealousy of our female dog.. Dixie is terrified of storms she shakes uncontrollably and no comforting or reassurance calms her down. She is slow to warm up to new animals. She wants to be alpha and may be best in a home where she gets all the attention. She also gets very nervous in our busy home if there is any chaos she shakes uncontrollably.

Malinois Foster Farrah - 15KB

Hello Everyone! My name is Farrah! I think it is a beautiful name! I picked it out myself.

I was found as a prisoner in an animal shelter and was being called "No Name". So when my Foster Mommy took me in, she gave me some choices and I decided Farrah was elegant and beautiful like me! So Farrah I am!

I am here to tell you a little bit about myself in hopes you might consider adding me to your family. I am about 5 or 6 years old but very young at heart! I am petite, but mighty! I get along with my foster brothers Tank, Stryker and Justice. Of course Justice and I pick at each other over toys, but we play together too. I adore Tank and look to him for advice and support. Stryker is sometimes too self absorbed for me to bother with. He only cares about his stupid Frisbee, so I just let him play on his own. We also have an elderly old Pomeranian named Zeus. He is blind and has trouble getting around, but I am ever so gentle with him and try to help my foster mom keep an eye on him.

I am very, very loving and loyal. I LOVE to cuddle and hug. I could just lay in your lap or next to you for hours and be happy, happy, happy! I am very obedient and when you call me I am "Johnny on the spot there'! I try very hard to please and am happy to do whatever I am told. I do have some things Foster Mom says I need to work on and said I have to share them because I am an honest girl! I am so happy to be near you I forget to sit to be petted. I would much rather hug you with all my might! Mom says this is not a good thing, but I sometimes can't help myself! But I am trying and getting better every day. I also don't like to share toys. I guess it is because I never had any or I love them so much I want them all to myself. Mom fusses at me about it, but my foster brothers don't seem to care…I mean there are so many toys here, I want them all! But I pick my favorites and the boys just let me have them. I know I should be willing to share with them, but I am scared they will take them from me and I won't have any to play with. I promise I am trying, so please don't pass me up just because I like my toys!

I also am a squirrel freak! I check the trees to see if I can find them and when I see one in a tree, I go CRAZY! I leap in the air, and run and try to keep up with them! Mom says it is very funny to watch me because I look silly, but I don't care! They are so much fun to chase after, even if they are so far above my head. I also am a bit shy when I meet new people. I try to act tough, but it just doesn't work, I am too much of a love bug I guess. Mom says she is going to take me out to meet new people a lot and I am excited for a new adventure. I know I will do great because I am so special and everything new to me I accept with a happy tail wag.

I would love for you to contact my coordinator and fill out the application to adopt me into your family. I promise to give you years of love, companionship and happiness.

Finn 1.5 yr old neutered male - GA

Malinois Foster Finn - 26KB

Finn is not a couch dog, but he loves to cuddle and watch a movie after he gets his zoomie energy out.

Finn, pka Luie came into ABMR in August as a pull from a Dekalb Animal shelter deathlist. He was found as a stray, HW+ and not very domesticated. From day one Finn showed us that he was a big hearted loving moose.

Finn is a large boy about 26 inches. He has an extremely high drive puppy brain (about 18 months old tops). He is not a couch dog, but he loves to cuddle and watch a movie after he gets his zoomie energy out. HE LOVES TO WORK AND LEARN. He is now house trained and kennel trained (he still need encouragement to run into the kennel – food works great). He knows how to come (most of the time), sit and down. He loves to give loooong hugs and to sleep in your lap. At almost 70 lbs, the sleeping in your lap part takes adjusting! Finn loves to jog, run, tug, play ball (but he does not bring the ball back yet...). He loves the agility jumps and can clear 4 ft easy. He knows how to unlatch gate latches, so some security measures are an absolute must!

He is decently good with cats. He came as a barking fool with cats, now he is able to share space with a mellow self assured cat under supervision. I do NOT leave any of my dogs unattended with our cat. Finn responds to "leave it" well and, while he is interested in cats, he knows he may not hurt my kitty. Even so, at 70 lbs and with a love to body slam and roll over on his back to get attention, the kitty is sometimes in the way. Kitty gets upset when he gets used as a mattress or a pillow!

Finn is good with other dogs, smallest we have is 30 lbs largest we have is 75 lbs. He prefers female dogs, but he learned to behave with our intact male young jerk, and while they grumble and cannot be left alone unsecured, they are civil on the walks and in the house. (My baby jerk is the problem actually). He used to totally ignore sheep, but slowly he developed herding interest and would actually do quite well if his family chooses to do herding. He is well balanced and non-manic with sheep, but has a good presence and power. He can be with poultry, but you have to watch him and remind him that chickens are not on the menu or a game. Again, he responds well to "leave it".

He has a very high drive. He is big and exuberant. He is also a love-nipper. He loves to "catch fleas" on you cuddling and it is something you have to keep working on. "Ouch! NO" works really well, but he gets so touchy feelie he cannot contain himself cuddling. He also is a mouthy boy who will take your hand or pants (gently not to pinch skin) and lead you to what he wants – outside for a walk, agility equipment to play, a toy, or bedroom/couch. He tells you what he would like to do if you listen. If he wants to cuddle on the couch – its the couch, not the bed, not the outside – he will show you what he means.

He is not afraid to make a mistake – he will try very hard to offer behaviors to figure out what it is you are asking, but he is softer dog and if he feels you are angry or upset – he falls to the floor. I suspect he was beaten at some point, because he has dropped like I was gonna kill him when he has done something wrong (we don't beat dogs here much despite constant promises to take their life away. LOL! My other dogs know empty threats, Finn still does not and you have to be very reserved with him, because he takes loudness and empty threats quite seriously). He prefers females. He has no problem with men he gets to know, but its pretty safe to say he was abused by a male before he came into rescue. He has guarded himself when cornered at the vets office in the cage and acted out with the doctor, but when his female staff took over, he was totally fine with her doing presurgical shots and procedures, so it was suggested he was a kennel dog that did not see much kindness from the men. He was polite with the same vet in a room and not being cornered. FINN LOVES CHILDREN. BUT, he is big, clumsy, licky with tendency to flea-kiss and rub on you with his whole body. While our dog-savvy friends' kids have no problem with him, I would strongly suggest a lot more training and time for him to mature and settle down before he is allowed unrestricted time with children who are less than his body weight and short. Again, that is not due to any aggression, he just does not get how big he is, and he is sooo exuberant and loving attention. With his exuberance, he has managed to hurt me – adult mid sized woman - by accident.

Finn requires patience. Everything is a game to him and he is a fun loving, happy-go-lucky dog without any serious thought at this time. He would excel in nose sports, and anything active. He also LOVES obedience work and will work for tug or treats! He will sure bring a LOT OF JOY to someone this holiday season!

Finn is low-level HW+ and is currently undergoing slow kill HW treatment. This treatment will need to be continued and ABMR will pay for the doxycycline and ivermectin to complete his year's treatment. The slow kill method was chosen for him due to his high drive, which would make crate rest psychologically unbearable for him. Slow kill also allows him to continue his training, and exercise (within reason – no distance running until the treatment is over). ABMR will work with the adopter's vet to coordinate treatment.

Finn attempted his CGC, but we have not done enough off-the-farm proofing and he is very unsure of the outside world and wanted to go back to the car and home. You could tell he was afraid he would be left behind... With his new home, he will need to get out and be socialized in the broader world. His forever family will need to be patient and work with him to assure him that he will never again be abandoned.

Finn needs someone with time, patience, and experience. He needs to be kept busy and to have a job to do. He is looking for a performance home – nose work, agility, even herding.

Do you have the time and desire to train a high intensity Mal? Then Finn would love to meet you!

Ollie is a rambunctious young Malinois (13 months old), with a medium drive (for a malinois!), that loves to play.

His current foster pack of mature Labs find it hard to keep up with his energy level. To make up for the pack's lack of playfulness, Ollie goes for long walks and bike rides to help expel his energy. Ollie would make a wonderful on-leash running partner as he stays by your side without the darting and zig-zagging in front of you. He has shown a fear of large trucks (U-haul/Ryder types) when walking and will stop and get behind you until they pass. His fosters are continuing to work with him when they are encountered offering strong praise when the trucks approach. He is neutered, current on vaccinations and HW/flea preventative, and he does have an overbite, but it does not affect him eating or day-to-day life.

Ollie has been socialized with people and other dogs by making trips to the local pet store and trips around the neighborhood. He is well-mannered in public, only needing slight prodding to keep his young mind on track. Ollie has shown no aggression toward anyone, including dogs his size, he has not been tested with small dogs. He is very curious and it sometimes will get the best of him. He is currently learning basic obedience and will stay, sit, and come in from the backyard when he is told 'house'. He also has been taught to 'leave it', when he finds something irresistible. He is continuing his obedience training and is responding well. Ollie will tolerate his crate, although he is not in it for long periods. He will occasionally put up a fuss for a few minutes until he settles in for the night. His fosters are slowly leaving him out of the kennel for short, unsupervised periods with great success. His fosters believe he suffers from a bit of separation anxiety when alone in his crate. However, short periods out of his kennel when left alone, he shows no anxiety when he is with the other members of his pack.

Ollie is quite the snuggler and is quite happy lying beside you! He will happily greet you when you return home with a Mal hug and he truly is a kind-hearted dog that aims to please. Ollie is sensitive, so just a firm voice correction is all that is needed to correct any unwanted behavior. As with most Malinois, he is drawn to small furry, fast-moving animals like squirrels and cats. His fosters have not had the chance to introduce Ollie to small dogs or children (6 & under), so constant supervision will be a must, given his sometimes rough play drive. Ideally, Ollie would be a perfect match with a home with another Malinois or higher energy dog that can keep up with him and play.
