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.

Amara 18 mo old spayed female - GA

Malinois Foster Amara - 18KB

Amara is an energetic young girl, a diamond in the rough looking for her special person(s).

Amara is an 18 month old spayed female currently located in GA. She is HW negative and up to date on shots. For Amara, we are looking for an experienced adopter and would also consider a foster-to-adopt to the right person. After a rough start, life has been looking up for this happy girl lately. She was picked up by the Sherriff's department in July of this year as part of a neglect case along with her litter of 8 puppies. The puppies have since found homes and Amara has been in foster with ABMR since they were weaned.

Since October of this year Amara has also been in professional training to learn about the things humans call 'manners'. This is especially important since Amara loves meeting new people. It's hard to remember your manners when you've never really had the chance to be a puppy yourself, and then all of a sudden people say you are 'too mouthy' when you're just excited and trying to make friends! But Amara has made great improvements in this area while in training and gets along well with the other dogs there. Amara is also crate trained.

Amara will require an experienced and patient handler who can continue her training and help her shine. She is a sweet, smart, high-drive girl who could excel in sports once someone harnesses her energy. Amara will not be placed with cats or young children (under 12) because of her boisterous nature. A fenced yard is a must.

Belle 2 yr old spayed female - LA

Fee: $350
Malinois Foster Belle - 11KB
Malinois Foster Belle - 14KB

Hey guys! My name is Belle. Don't let my name fool you because I'm no Southern Belle.

I love to play rough, despite being on the smaller side for a Malinois, and I thrive being outside. If my forever family likes to go camping and hiking, I'm 100% game. I'm 2 years old and am crate/ potty trained with basic obedience. I love sun-bathing and having all your attention by getting your hand in my mouth so you continue petting me along with flopping on the floor for my belly rubs.

When I was first brought into rescue by Brett Greene (he's my state coordinator) I was just a backyard dog that was Heartworm positive and taken to the shelter because I wasn't being stimulated enough so I chewed things. Now I'm Heartworm Negative, on monthly preventative for heartworms/fleas/ticks, and UTD on all my vaccines.

My perfect home would have/more about Belle: Person(s) with Malinois experience, Medium/large FENCED backyard, No children 12 and under, No cats or small animals, Need forever person(s) to lead active lifestyle to include me, Can be destructive if not stimulated mentally and physically worked, Lots of toys and tennis balls for my family and I to play with together

Hexa is a bubbly, playful girl who knows how to make her own fun!

Her favorite toys are hard plastic buckets and jolly balls. Nothing makes her happier than trotting around the yard with her ball while you drink your coffee on the porch and tell her she's pretty.

No mistake about it… Hexa is very pretty. She has a mischievous grin and a glint in her eye. When you reach down to pet her, she may wink to let you know that you're the lucky one. There is a some hair loss due to a flea allergy, but it's growing back. This girl doesn't let it crimp her style-- she struts her stuff with confidence. She is heartworm positive, but doesn't have symptoms and will be starting treatment soon. Hexa has the personality to mingle well in public. The office staff loved her when she went to work for a day, and she was happy with all the bustle around her. She is a "cute little thing" who will lick your hand to ask for attention. Hexa definitely prefers women, but she will warm up to men, especially if they give her cheese. Like a lot of malinois, she can be a little aloof with strangers or protective of the home, but after an appropriate introduction, she is "very sweet and personable." She was friendly with visiting children, but can be rambunctious.

Hexa gets along well with other dogs and respects their boundaries. She will play bounce with her lab foster-brother, but if he isn't in the mood, she's happy to play on her own. There may have been small dogs in a former foster home, and she seemed fine with them in photos. However, Hexa took an inappropriate interest in cats, horses, and pet pigs, so she is recommended for a dog-only household.

Hexa's foster thinks that she would be okay for a first time malinois family. "She is a fairly normal, well adjusted dog," who is "pretty easy" for a malinois. Her energy is "medium for a mal," so she'll still need regular exercise after her recovery period. A family that could walk her for an hour daily and then do a weekend camping trip would be perfect. Her foster thinks that Hexa would make a good running partner, but would also enjoy the off season. She doesn't have to go-go-go all the time.

This girl doesn't have the drive for competitive sports. She likes to please, but there are days when she'd rather just be loved. She's got the basics of crate, sit, lay down, and stay, and is learning to walk on leash. A simple heart with a great smile has brought her this far, so she doesn't seem interested in learning the kind of tricks that make you a star on Youtube. She just wants to be petted, and maybe a bite of cheese. Actually, she definitely wants a bite of cheese. If you really want to motivate her, that's your secret weapon.

Hexa is undergoing heartworm treatment and will need to be quiet during the recovery phase. That's a great time to snuggle her, find her favorite spot to be rubbed, and to negotiate if/which furniture she can lay on. Hexa would love to explore your yard, discuss the merits of American vs French cheeses, and make you laugh every day.

Malinois Foster Karen - 32KB

Karen is a beautiful 1- year old female who is very energetic and loves to play.

She has a high drive for the ball and is very fast, agile, and smart. She also loves the water and will jump into the pool after one of her favorite toys (usually a 'Chuck-It") with no hesitation. She would be ideally suited for a sport home with the intentions of competing in either agility or dock diving (or both). She currently runs circles around her foster brothers and still has energy to spare.

Karen crates easily and will sleep quietly through the night and has had no issues outside of her kennel when left for short periods unattended. She does become somewhat uneasy during thunderstorms but as long as she is by her human, she does fine.

Karen does have an "off" switch and is quite the cuddle buddy when it's time to wind down after a long day. She currently resides with 2 male Malinois and 1 female Lab, and would do very well in a home with at least one playmate - she loves being part of a pack - and thus far has shown no negative traits. This sweet girl is looking for a loving, sport-orientated home where she can continue to grow and prosper, and maybe learn a few new tricks!

For more information about Karen, please contact: Cindy.

Link 11 mo old neutered male – GA

Fee: $375

Malinois Foster Link - 12KB
Malinois Foster Link - 11KB

Malinois Foster Link - 22KB

Link is a friendly, easy-going pup looking for his forever.

Link is an 11 mo male available for adoption in GA. He currently weighs in at 42 lbs so still has a bit of growing to do. Link is a nice calm boy for his age and does well with other dogs, dog-savvy children and even cats! While in his foster home, Link has made great strides in his obedience training. He is still learning to focus a bit better, he is still a pup after all and easily distracted.

Link is house and crate trained. He also does well outside of the crate for example at night when people are home. In the house, Link is quiet and does not bark much. He walks well on a leash and likes playing with tug toys. He does well out in public, loves meeting new people, and does good with the vet. He is a great running and hiking partner!

Due to his past, Link does have a tendency to lose focus on the handler and occasionally reverts to repetitive behaviors such as licking crate walls or spinning. These behaviors do not have a neurological origin and he can be successfully redirected without too much effort. The behaviors have all but disappeared while in foster, but given this background we are looking for a more experienced home for Link where he can continue to thrive and learn without reverting. A quieter home with plenty of one-on-one attention would be preferable for Link. Transportation assistance to the right home is available for Link.

Hi! They call me Trina Bina Turquisina but that seems like a lot so usually its just Trina or Tri-Tri.

I was picked up 5 months ago as a stray and landed in the county shelter; I wasn't feeling well, had a bit of a nasty cough and a giant lump on my side that was really annoying. ABMR took care of that cough and had that lump removed. They said I'm a cancer survivor (whatever that is) !!

So... here at foster momma's house now it's super cool and she said I'm getting trained! I have learned all the basics: sit, down, stay, place, come when called, fetch, out, leave it! I'm house broken, I like the couch and sleeping in bed with you but I also don't mind the doggie cot or being in the crate overnight. I don't have social skills with other doggies so I MUST be your only pet. NO dogs, cats or small children! I LOVE all the big people I meet and show them by giving smoochies!

I'm kind, beautiful and have the softest fur. I love my back scratched and will snuggle up to you to get more lovin. I 'm around 8 years old but don't let my age fool you - I have loads of energy to chase the ball, frisbee and play a rousing game of tug! Foster mom says I need someone that will be stern with my commands because I used to grab and snatch at objects that weren't mine and still like to pretend whatever is in my mouth is mine forever. But if you tell me what to do and you really mean it, I WILL do it!

My new family must understand that I can't be with other dogs, I will obey commands if you ask me seriously and I will love you with my whole self forever and ever.
Love, Trina
