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.

Copper gets along with male and female dogs, but he does play rough- wrestle-mania rough- so he should only go to a home with other large dogs

Copper is a 2-3 year old neutered male that is current on shots and Heartworm negative. Copper is a tall and lanky boy, measuring over 28 inches at his shoulders and over 36 inches from chest to tail! He is potty trained and crate trained, and will hit the floor very quickly when given a "down"- he has a very nice sit and is working on other manners and leash walking as well.

Copper had a very rough start, so he is weary of new people at first- so introductions to new people (at home) should be on a leash and giving Copper time to walk up and want attention from the new people, without them reaching for him. Though this works with adults, Copper just is not comfortable around children, even 10-12 year olds, he is nervous and barks and growls- so no kids for Copper. Once he does get comfortable with new people, Copper becomes a big love bug and wants all the attention and loving he can get!

Outside of the home, Copper walks up to strangers and wants attention, but his new owner should still be cautious to make sure Copper is comfortable when walking up to people, making sure he is wagging and not tense at all. At the pet store, he walks up to all the employees for petting and drops to the floor for them to scratch his chest! He really is a lover, he just needs a little time to adjust.

Copper gets along with male and female dogs, but he does play rough- wrestle-mania rough- so he should only go to a home with other large dogs, as he does like to run very fast around the yard and will run small dogs over. He needs an experienced home that understands how to be a leader and can build his confidence, but understands that Copper is a "soft" dog to correct. He does guard his food, so he should be fed in his crate or away from other dogs, until he is confident enough to know that the food will always come, and he doesn't have to fight for it.

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.

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.

Jasmine – Performance home sought for a 1 year old gal in need of competition.

Jasmine is a girl with a very active mind, in search of an active performance home to partner with. A sponge for learning, she is quick to pick up on things to earn treats and toys. So what would she be good at? Name it! She is fine with water, so dock diving is a possibility. Totally stable on all surfaces, and with the ability to leap high and a love for speed, agility may be her passion (if it is yours). She has been tried on sheep and has shown potential, but her intensity will need to be ratcheted down. She does not try to eat the sheep but she is a tad too intense to allow the sheep to relax with her – so her technique and judgement will need fine tuning. She fetches, so flyball may also be an option. Both her ball drive and tug drive are in overdrive, so she can be motivated and will stay with you for as long as you want to train. She is also totally sound insensitive (you could practically vacuum her up), and is social and focused.

She has no timidity what so ever. In fact, if anything, she comes into situations with a lot of confidence and just dares you to keep up! She can remain focused under pressure, if she has YOUR attention. Your focus on HER is her main motivator.

She is a thinker, and also is a bit of a conniver. She is a counter surfer extraordinaire, with a sneaky streak, making it hard to catch her in the act. We are working on that in foster, but also think that if she is given proper stimulation in that aforementioned JOB, that her mind will be tired, and she will be less likely to get into trouble. What she really needs is her very own person, who can work with her and make her part of a team.

She is good with dogs, and even good with cats. Her previous family had toddlers and an infant. She was great with them, though tended to be protective. She is also protective with strangers entering her home, but is okay if you are there. She is NOT suitable for a first time Malinois home.

Katie 2 yr old spayed female - GA

Malinois Foster Katie - 14KB

Katie has blossomed into the most affectionate, sweet, playful, and high drive dog; she's a delight on leash, has learned basic obedience commands . . .

Katie was crated all her life - she appears to have likely been a "puppy mill-type" dog. Katie would not eat out of a bowl, but if food was put on ground she would fearfully, cautiously eat. Now she eats 4 cups of high protein grain-free food a day from her bowl. Katie never been on a leash, knew NO obedience commands, never seen or played with a ball, was very fearful and severely malnourished when I picked her up in July; it took almost a week before she would willingly leave her crate for any reason.

Katie has blossomed into the most affectionate, sweet, playful, and high drive dog; she's a delight on leash, has learned basic obedience commands – once easily startled, Katie is now growing in confidence during training, exercise, socialization and people-time. "The belief is simple: Dogs learn good behavior by being rewarded for doing well. And punishment doesn't have to come in the form of a harsh reprimand or physical force." Sylvia-Stasiewicz says more dominant training and techniques focus too much on "bad" things a dog does and force the animal to figure out, through trial and error, what he must do in order not to be punished. "Training doesn't have to be cruel and punishment-oriented," Sylvia-Stasiewicz says. "If you train using positive reinforcement, you'll get a trained dog and you will maintain the spirit of that dog." Positive reinforcement trainers often use verbal cues, hand signals, treats, clickers, toys, and even games to help modify behavior, correct bad habits, and even to teach tricks. Trainers use both positive reinforcement (giving rewards) and negative punishment (taking away rewards.)" excerpt from WebMD Dog Training Methods"

  • Recommendations:
    • Katie most definitely needs to be an integral part of her human pack. She is content to lay at your feet or next to you on the couch as well as play ball in the yard.
    • Katie is wonderful with children over the age of 10
    • I don't recommend around cats, however she is good with small dogs.
    • Katie is good with all dogs and is very social.
    • Katie deserves a home which will nurture her confidence and will be committed to rehabilitating Katie into the amazing potential that we see blossoming each day.
    • I don't advise letting her off leash except in a confined fenced yard until professional obedience classes are completed and recall is consistent on 15 ft leash.

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