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.

"My helicopter ears make me that much MORE FUN!!"

Briggs is a 2-3 Y.O. neutered male being fostered in North Carolina. Briggs is a tall handsome boy standing at 27” from the withers and weighing 65 pounds.

Briggs had a rough start and ended up in a Tennessee shelter in terrible condition, very malnourished and scared. Briggs won the hearts of the shelter staff who did everything in their power and resources to help him out. Happily, ABMR stepped in and got him nursed back to health and taught him what living in a house (he had probably never lived in one before) and being loved is all about.

Briggs is house trained and has basic obedience down like a rock star-easy peasy. Briggs is a quick study. He loves to train, and will do anything for a treat or toy or game of tug. I often joke that if I had the skill, I could probably teach him how to prepare my taxes, hes so smart. Briggs is sometimes good on a loose leash, and sometimes not, depends on how excited he is. Briggs walks beautifully in a gentle leader.

Briggs is a heart breaker. With his helicopter ears (most likely due to malnutrition early in life) and beautiful brown eyes. Everywhere he goes people fawn all over him and Briggs loves being the center of attention! There is something absolutely special about him. I have never seen so many people react to a dog the way they do him.

Briggs loves children and is respectful of them. He has learned jumping on any person, little or big is unacceptable. A dog savvy child 7 or older would be acceptable.

Briggs gets along famously with other dogs, small and large, but can be overly enthusiastic, so a home with smaller dogs is fine so long as the dogs are assertive, and will let Briggs know when they are done playing. Briggs is very respectful to any dog willing to tell him they have had enough, or that he over stepped boundaries.

A wonderful thing about Briggs is that he is just as happy to take a nap near you as he is to run 5 miles with you. While he does require daily exercise, he is pretty mellow on the Malinois scale. A good walk or two a day, maybe a game of tug is sufficient, but if you wanted to hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro he would be happy to tag along too!

Briggs has some separation/crate anxiety. He was once famous for his Houdini antics in his first foster home and notoriously escaped every crate he was put into. I am happy to report that Briggs has not broken out of his crate in the months he has been with me (This is his second foster home). Briggs will happily go into his crate if you throw some kibble in there, its never difficult to get him in. He eats in there and enjoys his kong in there with the door open. However, sometimes (and I say sometimes, because it is NOT every time-odd, I know) once he is crated and you leave he gets upset. At times he has peed in his crate, again, not every time. We are working very hard on this. Briggs would do best in a home where someone was around a good portion of the day. I have crated him up to 7 hours before, but on an average day he is usually crated about 3-4 hours. Briggs’ perfect home would have someone home more often than not.

When Briggs first got to my home, he would not go pee without me walking in the backyard with him. He has made progress and his confidence has boosted to such an extent that he will now go out with his foster brother and do his business and hurry back in. His main priority is to be with you as much as possible. Briggs is a Velcro dog.

Briggs does NOT get onto furniture unless properly invited and we are working on him waiting to be released before going out a door. He loves to let you know when he is excited about something and will tell you all about it, but Briggs is not a crazy barker. Briggs is mellow in the house, he will play with his foster brother a bit, wrestle around-but no running about wildly. No breaking lamps :-)

Briggs needs to be fed a low ingredient, grain free, easy to digest kibble. These kibbles are not overly expensive and most brands now make them. Briggs has tummy issues and the easier to digest a food is, the healthier Briggs is.

Briggs has learned and grown a lot since his Tennessee animal shelter days. He is progressing everyday. Briggs is eager to please and a love bug. A firm NO will usually be enough to stop him in his tracks. He will make his new person a wonderful best friend and partner in crime. Briggs wants nothing more than to be loved. Briggs would be thrilled to be invited into your home and heart forever!

Amazing Gracie will amaze you with her devotion.

Gracie is an awesome 3-4 year old Mal Gal. She is very loving and affectionate with her people, and likes nothing more than a good game of fetch, either with a ball or frisbee. Her only desire is to be with you and the apple of your eye. In fact, she would be with you 24/7 if she could. She loves to ride in the car and go places with you. To that end, she has become quite an escape artist, so you need to be sure she is inside when you leave or she will try and follow you. Doggie doors would definitely not be a good idea with her.

She is good with people, but will bark to let you know someone is outside. As with all Mals, proper introductions are a must, but she has been good with people she has met. Before coming into rescue, her family had small children and she was also excellent with them.

Gracie is house broken and easy to train as she has both toy drive and food drive. But this drive can also get her into trouble as she has shown resource guarding tendencies towards the resident dog. She will attack to protect what is "hers" and then try to make up. She can be quite bossy and domineering. This has only been with other dogs, not with humans. So we are looking for a home where she is the only dog, or one with an experienced handler/trainer who will be willing to train her and manage her bossiness.

She is afraid of gunshots and thunderstorms, and likes a safe place where she feels secure. Her fear manifests as just hiding not destruction, and she has shown a preference for closets to ride out the storm.

She will be an incredibly loving companion to the lucky folk who adopt her.

Kite approx 1-2 yr old spayed male - GA

Fee: $250
Photo of Malinois Foster Kite - 15KB
Photo of Malinois Foster Kite - 23KB

Kite is one hunk of a manly Malinois- just call him Handsome.

Having spent his entire puppyhood in a crate Kite is a bit of a behavioral fixer upper. However, he has made a lot of progress, and with time and patience, should make someone very proud.

The good: He is approximately 1 – 2 years old, 100% housetrained, and is very good about going into his crate. He knows his basic obedience commands: sit, stay, down, come, drop it, leave it. We are working on heel, but he gets distracted easily. Generally he walks nicely on a leash, but can pull if he is in a hurry. He knows a few tricks- spins right, spins left, sits by your side. Kite has excellent food drive, toy drive, and tug drive. He is already an excellent Frisbee dog. He is very affectionate with his owner, though he may be slow to warm up to his new person. It took a while to build a bond with him. His pack drive is very good.

Areas for improvement: Though crate trained, he is very loud if he wants out (like when you are home, but he is fine at night). He will pull things through the crate side- blankets, carpet, rugs, kind of amazing the determination he has in pulling these things into the crate. He can and will chew up anything. His personal favorite game is keep away. If an item is dropped, he will grab it and try to get you to chase him. Therefore, you might want to open your tax refund when he is in his crate, because if he gets it, you won’t get it back. He has figured out the best way to keep you from having what he has is to eat it. He knows drop and leave it, but if he wants it, he will swallow the object.

Kite needs a lot of help with socialization. Having spent his puppyhood in a box, he is not able to meet new dogs in an acceptable way, and could offend some dogs. Other dogs may ignore him or be frightened by his behavior. He has not shown any aggression to dogs, but he has been given his space. A home experienced with this type of dog would be great. This applies to humans as well- he is especially sensitive to strange men, and may become reactive if a stranger gets too close. I would not allow a stranger to touch him.

Fair Warning: Kite would do best with an experienced and consistent handler. When excited, he becomes quite mouthy and has to be distracted or dissuaded from mouthing. If he wants something, he will try to corner you and bully you into giving it to him (food in the kitchen). He may growl when you approach with the food bowl. I feed him in a crate away from other dogs, and down him and make him get quiet before I give him the food.

Kite’s greatest joys are being by your side and training. Because his leg was broken as a puppy, a vet consultation might be a good idea to see what his physical limitations might be with regard to any doggy sports.

Wanda 4-5 yr old spayed female - FL

Fee: $225
Malinois Foster Wanda - 13KB
Malinois Foster Wanda - 17KB

Wanda is a Lady! Super sweet and well behaved.

Wanda is a 4-5 year old spayed female. Wanda has recently recovered from a cruciate surgery. She probably will always walk with a slight limp, but she certainly will still be able to run.

She loves to play fetch, and she is good with all other dogs. She even likes cats! She is respectful of farm animals and she is a good watch dog.

Wanda is a Lady. She is simple and easy. House trained and not destructive.

Wanda has only two requests, and those are to be loved unconditionally and a blanket she can call her own. Wanda is on the quiet side for a Malinois, but don't get me wrong, you can rough house with her and she can get rough back. She is strong as an ox!

Wanda is looking for her furever it with you?

For more information about Wanda, please contact: Terry.

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