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.

Andie 1 yr old spayed female - KY

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Andie - 30KB
Malinois Foster Andie - 28KB

Andie is a beautiful 1 year old Malinois who is full of energy.

She weighs about 54 pounds and is fully vaccinated and spayed She has lots of drive and would thrive in an environment where she would have opportunity to do some sort of performance sport such as agility, nosework, obedience, etc.

To describe her in one word would be to say she is a happy girl. She absolutely loves her squeaky ball and knows how to enjoys life to the fullest, ready for every new adventure.

Here is a short video of Andie:

She has an intense prey drive so will not be placed in a home with cats or small children.

Andie loves attention and is very affectionate with her people. She seems to be intuitive and ultra-sensitive to disabilities. She has interacted with a blind dog and was extra tolerant of him trying to get her food. She is not food aggressive but would naturally try to eat her food before another dog could get to it. In the case of this dog, she allowed him to have it. It was very sweet.

She loves the car and is a very good passenger. Andie never pulls on the leash when walking and knows 'sit'. She has great potential and would excel in complex activities that require problem solving. She is crated trained and housetrained.

Andie is wishing and hoping for a home where she will get lots of attention with a family that can set boundaries and provide structure and consistency. She will blossom in a home where she will get lots of mental and physical exercise.

For more information about Andie, please contact: Megan.

Malinois Foster Callie - 15KB

Callie, officially Kendall when taken in by ABMR, was found as a stray in the FL Everglades and is developing into a lovely companion dog.

Callie is a mid-energy level girl and is 3-4 years old. She's made such great strides! She wants to please, and thrives on a schedule, and her confidence is growing every week. Like many dogs, she has different 'inside' and 'outside' personalities.

Inside: she settles down easily, likes to cuddle on the sofa, is very affectionate, and self-entertains by chewing on an old bone. She sometimes engages in light play time with the other dogs in her foster home - a lab and a westie.

Outside: in the yard, her prey drive kicks in. She LOVES to run and play ball. She also is intense about chasing squirrels. She cannot be in the yard with the little Westie who loves to run fast. (She sees him as prey.) She has not been tested with cats, but assume it would not be safe.

She is very soft –a raised voice may result in her cowering to the ground going into 'survival mode'. When she feels threatened or is surprised, her fear from her former life comes back and she wants to escape the situation, or bark at it, or shut down by flattening herself on the floor. When calmly introduced to something new, she is very accepting the next time she encounters it. Her new person will need to continue to work on building her confidence and trust in new situations.

Callie enjoys going for walks and does nicely on leash. She calmly meets people when on leash and slowly goes forward to seek their touch. Callie is crate trained (she sleeps in an extra large crate and is crated whenever I leave the house). She likes to ride crated in the car and loads easily. She will bark if she sees other vehicles close to her car!

Callie LOVES to run and play ball. Watch her catch in her video!

Dream Home: The dream forever home for Callie would be with an active retired person or couple, or a family with children over 10 years old where someone is home for part or most of the day. She would be on a schedule, and they would be consistent about her boundaries, would have lots of patience, and would help to build her confidence. They would go for a short walk or two every day, and play ball together in a large fenced in yard. There would be another dog in the family, (preferably a medium to large male), that would be her buddy. She would be loved and valued for her sweet disposition, playfulness, and intelligence, and she would lavish her people with attention and affection.

Hi Everybody! My name is Charlotte. I love people, all people. I just want to be around people.

I greet adult humans with caution, but with only a little encouragement I'm quick to accept them. I love to snuggle and be petted, especially belly rubs. I freely give kisses and if you forget to pet me, I'll give you a nudge to remind you.

While I would love being an only dog with someone who would focus all of their free time on me, with proper training I might tolerate other dogs. I'd love to be a part of a very small family. I'm not sure how I feel about children yet, however, I'm certain that small pet birds would make a tasty treat, so make sure you don't have any in your home before promising to love me.

I have a mysterious past and have not shared those secrets with anyone, but my foster mom suspects it wasn't great. I used to be afraid to come into the house, but now that I know that there is air conditioning, soft carpet, cool running water, endless bowls of food and lots of love, I'm a little nervous about leaving, even to go for a walk; I'm always afraid that I won't be allowed back in if I go outside.

I am super smart but often scared. I can learn, but the timing of my training must coincide with weather patterns. Please don't try to teach me new tricks or practice learned ones when a storm is coming. I am afraid of thunder and smart enough to know that grey skies and rain drops mean the thunder might be coming. I only want to walk when the storm is over and the sun comes back out. While we wait for the weather to change, I'd love to lie on the bed while you read me a story. I love when my foster mom reads to me. She closes the door and locks the bird and the dog out. I have her all to myself and she reads while she pets me.

If you are dreaming of a relaxing walk on the beach with your new love, I may not be the right girl for you. I tend to weave from side to side when walking because I'm trying to teach my foster mom how to play Chinese jump rope. As I mentioned earlier, I really like being in the house. You will need sturdy shoes and a lot of patience to change me, but if you are up for the challenge, I'd love to meet you.

I am house broken up to a point. I do not potty in the house, however, your laundry is fair game, even if it's in the laundry basket. Chewable items on a table or night stand are also fair game if I can reach them – I have been known to counter-surf.

I am a beautiful loving dog and in the right environment I would definitely thrive. It may take a while for my true inner beauty to shine, but I'm worth all the time you invest.

Jasmine is a very sweet girl, but is also extremely shy when first meeting people, but once she warms up to you, she will pester you for attention.

Jasmine was rescued with a shattered pelvis after being hit by a car. She had FHO surgery in July and is still going through rehab / physical therapy to strengthen and regain use of her left back leg. So far she is doing great, able to run and swim, and as time goes on, she'll have a lot more use of it. She can certainly jump up on the couch and into my car.

Jasmine is a very sweet girl, but is also extremely shy when first meeting people, but once she warms up to you, she will pester you for attention. She loves to cuddle, will climb up in your lap, and follow you around the house. She loves other dogs and feels most comfortable in an easy-going household, lounging around with the other dogs. She has shown no interest in chasing cats or chickens and isn't crazy about toys either.

Jasmine doesn't mind going into the crate, but if left in there for long hours, she will tear up her bedding. Thunderstorms also set her on edge, but she calms right down with either another dog by her side or her favorite human. She doesn't mind car rides, but can get a little anxious if the journey is too long - she begins to pant heavily - but overall rides nicely. Again, having another dog for company is a good idea, especially if they love car rides!

Jasmine will be the happiest girl on the planet once she finds her forever home with someone who just loves to relax on the couch, watch tv, and do short walks outside. And one or two fur-brothers and sisters are an absolute must!

For more information about Jasmine, please contact: Cindy.

Loki is looking for a malinois savvy home, as he can be extremely pushy and bossy at times

Loki is an approximately 2.5 year old male, he is current on vaccinations and neutered- he has recently finished up heartworm treatment, so will soon be given the all clear with that as well.

Loki is looking for a malinois savvy home, as he can be extremely pushy and bossy at times, and when not getting his way he does/can give off the pushy male mal growl. Someone with a heavy or forceful demeanor will not be a good mix- he needs someone that can establish boundaries and be an even/level leader for him. Loki gets along great with older kids (10+) and once he warms up to you there is no place else he wants to be but by your side. He is a hugger and loves to sit down and wrap his front legs around you. He is medium/high energy and loves to go on walks, runs, and hikes. Once finished patrolling the house, he will lay down and relax with you, but prefers to have a bone/chew to occupy himself with while you watch tv. He is not big on toys but loves bones and anything he can chew on. He loves using his nose to find stuff, so someone who wants to do nose work would be great for him. He has a crazy high food and treat drive, there is nothing he won't do for a treat or some food.

He is good with medium/large dogs that are not dominant. He is NOT a dog park kind of dog. He does love to be outside (rain or shine) in a fenced yard. He has a medium prey drive and unsure of cats (but will run across the yard after squirrels and birds) and sit and watch them as long as they are within sight. Because of this reason he will not be placed with cats or other small animals (to include small dogs) or small children.

He is kennel trained but doesn't prefer to be there, a little treat or food in there helps. He's not destructive in a kennel but when ready to get out he is vocal and will yip to let you know he wants out or has to potty. He is fully potty trained in the house and will stand at the door to let you know he has to go out, and if you don't pay attention, will then bark to make sure you are aware of his needs.

Loki is a great dog that is ready to find his forever home with a person/family he can bond with and be their Velcro dog. He would love to find an active home that will keep him occupied and busy, and shower him with love, but still keep boundaries- as he is very smart and will push limits if he sees he can walk all over you! Once he finds that person, he will be loyal to the end.

If interested in applying for Loki, please use the below link. Once finished with your application, a copy will be sent to your email- forward that email to Angela at angela.maddux@gmail.com - it will not be sent directly from the website.

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

Marley was surrendered to a shelter because his family kept him kenneled all day and could not spend enough time with him

Marley is a handsome 3-year-old, fawn colored, neutered male. He was surrendered to a shelter because his family kept him kenneled all day and could not spend enough time with him and felt it was unfair to Marley.

He has a lot of energy and true to his breed, is intense in everything he does.

He adores playing and will find a way to make a game out of anything. For example, when his foster mom collects water for her gardens, he will run past her at full speed and if she flicks water at him, he zooms around, expressing low woofing sounds like he is begging her to keep playing. He loves big jolly balls and sticks. Here is a video of him playing ball (excuse my poor camera handling skills).


He is food motivated and is very engaged when you have treats or toys. He is extremely intelligent and enjoys working and training.

Due to his previous family not spending a lot of time with him, he did not appear to get a lot of socialization or exposure to different things. The shelter staff was wonderful and made significant progress with him while he was there. He is now in a foster home and she has continued to expand his world, working hard to introduce him to new things - he is responding very nicely to this. For example, he now loves to ride on her ATV (she has a secure hold on him of course).

Marley is not destructive with toys, bedding or anything else, but has never met mud or mud puddles that he doesn't like J.

He is very affectionate but can be nervous in new situations, with new people. He prefers to approach new people in his own time, and does not like strangers looming over him.

He is learning to walk nicely on leash. He can be a little whiney in the car at first but will settle down after a bit and does fine in a crate.

He has a huge prey drive so will not be placed in a home with cats or small animals.

He plays alongside the foster mom's dogs but again, is intense and likes to play rough like a Malinois.

Marley's intensity crosses into his attachments to his people. He is the kind of dog that becomes totally devoted to his person and intensely bonded. He loves attention and affection.

Marley is in search of a family that can provide structure and consistency with a soft touch. He is a very sweet boy with lots to give. He will flourish with a family that will involve him in activities and that has an interest in giving him a mental and physical outlet for his energy.

For more information about Marley, please contact: Carol.

This little girl is the total package, she represents all of the things that are most endearing in Malinois.

She is beautiful, smart, athletic, confident and sensitive. She is still young, less than a year old, and shows her goofy over-the-top puppy side a lot. She has high toy/ball drive as well as high food drive. She loves the water, is an excellent swimmer and will retrieve objects from a pool or lake indefinitely (she would love to be a dock diving dog!) she also likes to play fetch on land and will go until you absolutely make her stop. She can be stubborn, but is a good listener. She learns new behaviors quickly and is eager to please.

She will need an experienced working dog home where someone will be present much of the time and where she can have a job whether it's dock diving, herding, rally, agility, or something completely different. Ofa is NOT a couch potato although she does have an off switch and loves to snuggle. She will need a high secure fenced yard also—she jumps like an Olympian. She is sensitive to her environment and people and has shown herself to be very trainable. For her to be the best version of herself she will need a home with kind, patient, experienced handlers. This dog can do pretty much anything, but would not fair well with heavy-handed training tactics or an abundance of time spent entirely alone. The thing that seems to make her happiest is affection from her people.

Ofa loves other animals. She plays with her Malinois buddies constantly but she can be pushy so her best bet for a doggie friend would be another energetic, stable, confident dog(s). She does not attempt to chase the cat, but does play bow, bounce around and attempt to engage her frequently.

She has briefly met children of different ages. She is a little nervous around them, but is calm if they are. She is not okay with being jumped at or chased. For that reason we think she would do best with older/dog savvy children or no children. She is becoming more aware all the time, but is still a puppy and can be a bit careless and mouthy when she's playing and worked up.

She sleeps in a crate at night very contentedly. She will go right in for a handful of kibble but may whine for a minute or two before settling in once the food is gone. During the day, however, she is less cooperative about the crate. She prefers to be where she can see or touch her human at all times although if you're doing something she will usually lay down near you and chew a toy or just relax.

This beautiful and energetic girl is waiting for the perfect family to come along to teach her sports and activities to keep her brain and body exercised and fulfilled. If you think you can provide Ofa with fun activities and stimulation, please fill out her application and reach out to her coordinator, Angela Maddux to ensure your application has been received to be reviewed.

Phenix would be great for the first time Malinois owner

Phenix is an approximately 1-year old female with lots of potential. She would be great for the first time Malinois owner due to her very low-drive calm nature. She came to us from western Georgia and has been gladly welcomed into out pack by Alumni Gripp and Alumni Ranger, and Labrador's Grace and Max…even by Blair, our cat (but we'll expand on that later).

Phenix is very low drive and likes to spend her time relaxing in the yard or laying in the floor. She is currently learning what toys are and has just now began to play with them. She is a very submissive girl, probably due to her unfortunate past, as she is very shy around new people. She gladly tolerates everyone in the home, including children of all ages but does show great interest in small fuzzy things, like cats and small dogs. So, a home with larger dogs and no cats would be the best for her.

She crates easily and is quiet, eating her meals in her crate and when it comes time to turn in for the evening. She has never shown an ounce of aggression at anyone or anything, even at the vet. She is a very good girl that will continue to come out of her shell as time progresses. She currently is leashed when outside the fence (which is a see-through type horse fence that is 5ft tall) due to her skittish nature. It doesn't take long for her to warm up to her new surroundings and it is especially helpful if she has another Mal Pal around to help her confidence. She even did very well when she saw our resident Fox through the fence, just watching and never trying to jump.

Phenix would be the best dog for the first time Malinois owner!
