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.

He has an obsession with his Kong toy and it has to be with him in his crate...it is his pacifier

Izzy is a young male adult estimated to be around 1-3 years old. He is neutered and up to date on all his vaccines. He is crate trained and enjoys sleeping in his crate at night. He has an obsession with his Kong toy and it has to be with him in his crate...it is his pacifier!

Izzy has been treated for his skin allergies with medication and weekly medicated baths. His hair has finally started to grow back and he is looking so handsome! Izzy needs to stay on his special diet with his sensitive skin and stomach food.

Izzy gets along with all dogs his size and he will let a dog know in a nice way when he has had enough. Izzy can be a grouch when he is tired and likes to be left alone to take a nap in his crate when he doesn't want to be bothered. He is very energetic and hyper at times, but he calms down quickly after exercise. He loves going on walks and his leash training has improved with him wearing a gentle leader. He is very treat motivated and he is currently in obedience classes to work on his basic manners.

He is one goofy boy and the sweetest cuddle buddy ever! He thrives for attention and just wants to be loved. He will sit in my lap to get belly rubs all day long! Izzy will make a great companion for an active pet home. He would be great at agility because he loves to climb up on things or search and rescue because he loves to be busy and use that nose!

For more information about Izzy, please contact: Marcia

A chance to live with your very own heartthrob ~ Meet Leif Garrett

Leif Garrett is exactly as you imagined in the dog version of a heartthrob. He came into rescue half- starved and literally looked like a walking head. He is constantly happy and somewhat difficult to photograph because he is always smashing his head into a human so he can get just a little bit closer. He actually asks if he can join you on that comfy chair because "yes.yes there is room for an extra 70lb guy that will flip on his back pretending to be a kitty", that signature Belgian roll.

Just a few days into foster care this big lug seemed to know nothing, and each experience is met with joyful exuberance and gratitude for showing him how dogs should be treated. Due to his gentle nature and extreme need to please he is picking up all aspects of training very quickly. He is crate, large outdoor kennel trained and hops in willingly and immediately goes to sleep. Zero barking or anxiety when kenneled and will pass out for hours. He loads immediately in a crate in the vehicle and will one day tell his friends about "that fun moving couch" he had in foster care. He is a great guard dog when in the house or back yard and will announce when someone is walking on the street but is learning to quiet when asked to do so. In less than 10 days he has a pretty good on leash heel with no pulling and is learning to walk perfectly on the left side.

Although the animals he sees on a walk are interesting he doesn't seem to have much prey drive which may translate OK to cats, but unable to test in this single animal home. When changing out his collar he panicked and threw his head into the new collar to put it on quickly as if to say "I need to belong, put it back on quickly". Zero food aggression and although currently severely malnourished, politely and quietly eats his food.

Although everything seems new to him he immediately trusts all humans. Children are especially drawn to him due to his super friendly nature. Within 72hrs of arriving in foster care he was tossed into two separate group hikes with other dogs and humans. After a brief "dog discussion" he happily ran alongside the other dogs to enjoy the day. We were able to remove the longline on those same hikes because of his solid recall and a quick turn from a straight whistle. Goes nuts for delicious treats but will very gently accept that grain free dog biscuit just to be polite as if to say "Thank you but you and I both know that there are hotdogs and cheese nearby so be a pal and next time give me one of those instead". When presented with 10 various toys politely took each of them in his mouth one by one as if to say "for me? really?" sort of like the winter warlock accepting his choo-choo. As he is encouraged to play with toys, likes to grab the toy and will only offer it back with a trade, so having two is a good idea until he understands a release command. He is housebroken and is starting to walk toward the door when he wants to go outside. Does not use his very large outdoor kennel and will hold it for 6hrs vs "pointing it outside" as his foster human suggested. Non-destructive, but will be happy to pick-up that shoe you left behind but immediately stops at the words "no sir" and is immediately apologetic.

Leif Garret is a 1 year old Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd/Great Dane? mix. He measures 28 inches at withers and weighs 70lbs, and he is not finished filling out. He is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations.

Leif is HW positive and is currently on a slow kill HW program due to his young age. Basically these heartworms haven't been around too long so a slow kill method simply includes antibiotics and a monthly heartguard chewable tablet. He is available now within a Foster-Adopt program where a potential match would simply take custody of him now and ABMR would cover medical costs until he tests negative for heartworms. This could be a few months or up to one year. Leif's future could include therapy work whether this is at nursing home, children's hospital or library program where children can read to a dog. He will happily put his big head as close to them as possible and lay quietly on the ground for additional attention. If you are interested in seeing more of Leif's adventures simply go to the American Belgian Malinois facebook page and enter his name in bottom right of the banner at "search this page".

LUCAS - Porky No Morky

You might remember Lucas, he was quite shall we say, hmmmmm, well............FAT. In fact he was quite grotesque. It felt cruel to see him at his beginning weight. He lived with an older couple who let him balloon up and then who abandoned him at a shelter. Thanks to the wonderful care from his Foster Mom he has been shedding the pounds and learning to love. At six years old he is just coming into his own and Foster Mom reports that he is a very nice boy. He has been more energetic since the weight has been coming off. And, he could not care less about other dogs or animals; he just wants to be around people. Please give Lucas a second shot at a good life. He'll reward you w it's love and attention.

For more information about Lucas, please contact: Sara

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