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.

Boss -- Active agility, dock diving or Frisbee candidate!

Boss is a stunning 4-year old who is active and intense. He has high food drive, high ball drive and will play Frisbee; no tug drive. He will jump in the lake to retrieve toys. Boss would make a great agility, dock diving, or Frisbee dog for the right savvy owner.

His drive is high enough that it overrides his surroundings but he will need experiences in public places.  Boss is aloof/neutral of strangers and will need some time to settle in. He was originally very uncomfortable with you grabbing his collar, but has since gotten much better. Boss did not handle his initial transportation into foster well. His adopter must be local to or be willing to travel to Middle Tennessee.

Boss does well with medium and large female dogs. He's neutral with male dogs but shouldn't live with a male dog. No cats, no small dogs, and no kids.  Boss was surrendered to local shelter when his owner could no longer keep him and his male littermate.

For more information about Boss, please contact: Charlotte

Cruz 3 yr old spayed female - NC

Malinois Foster Cruz - 19KB

Malinois Foster Cruz - 12KB

Cruz is a BEAUTIFUL 3 yo spayed female with the drive to work!

She is higher drive Malinois – anything that moves or that you hold in your hand is seen as a toy by her. So because of her higher drive, Cruz will NOT be placed in a home with small children, small dogs or cats.

She has the drive to search for toys in the back yard, and she clearly uses her nose over her eyes to find them. We believe she would excel in some sort of detection work.

Cruz is learning that it is "ok" to be in her crate – and that she's not in trouble when in there and that her people will return. And though she's making great progress, can and will eat her way out of a plastic or wire crate, possibly injuring herself in the process, so if she is crated, an Impact crate MUST be used. She will voluntarily lay in a plastic crate when her people are home, but when she needs to be left home alone, again, she must be in an Impact crate with EITHER a bed OR a toy/treat.

In the car, she rides wonderfully either tethered, or in a crate. When crated, she loads easily with an "in" command and doesn't make a sound. When tethered, she will wait for you to grab her leash and say "ok" before jumping out of the vehicle.

At this point, she is reactive to other dogs when she is in a crate or on a leash, but other than that, she would do great with a low energy and/or submissive male dog once properly introduced. Her current foster is working on her reactivity to dogs on walks while out and about. She walks nicely on her own, but where there have been distractions, (dogs, cats, kids playing ball) a prong has been used with success.

Cruz would play fetch for hours if you let her, bringing the ball right back to you and placing it at your feet. If other dogs are around though, she will pay more attention to their toys and anything else that moves instead of her ball. This must be monitored, as it could prompt an altercation over said toy.

She bonds quickly, and loves to be petted as long as you take your time with her using slow and deliberate movements. She is a little head shy, so make sure that you have her attention before reaching out to pet her. She dislikes having her feet touched as well as her hind end. These are some of the things her foster home is working on with her.

Cruz knows "sit" and "down" and will sit and wait until being released to eat. She does not get on the furniture and hasn't attempted to. She is content to follow you around and sit at your feet. She does not beg while you eat and will lie either in the crate or somewhere in the room where she can still see you.

Cruz is looking for her forever home with someone who is knowledgeable and experienced with the breed, and who will give her the care and attention she most-certainly deserves.

Dixie 4-5 yr old spayed female - LA

Fee: $275

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.

Jax was trusting and friendly and warmed to each of the rescuers on her path from the shelter to her foster home.

Jax is a big (63 lb) senior female who was picked up off the street in Miami. She had obviously been on the street for a long time, given her body condition, which was extremely thin, greasy, scabby and covered with fleas and ground in dirt. She tested positive for erlichia and anaplasma, and also had a huge mass protruding out of her side that made her physically uncomfortable and unstable in addition to painful. But she was trusting and friendly and warmed to each of the rescuers on her path from the shelter to her foster home. There, she was bathed, wormed, and fed, and within days, managed to open up the mass on her side which drained more than quart of fluid. After a course of antibiotics, she perked up quite a bit and showed no obvious signs of illness or injury. She is heartworm negative, and on flea and heartworm preventative.

Jax is friendly to all people, and tolerant of and gentle with all dogs we've met, big and small. She has not been tested with cats. She will chase squirrels across the yard alongside the resident, highly prey-driven mal, but it's not known if she'd bother if she were alone. She will bark at neighbor dogs, as well, if the bark-fest is instigated by the resident dog. The only other barking she does is if you're holding a ball but not throwing it!

Jax is estimated to be between 9 and 11. She is still underweight and underconditioned but her energy and attitude are great. Her teeth are well worn and her muzzle is white. But her eyes are clear and she'll play ball with anyone willing for hours. Other than playing ball, she wants nothing more than to snuggle. She will try to lift her huge bony body into your lap or bed if given the chance. She has a solid appetite but is not food driven; balls are her thing. She loves and is very tolerant of kids. She crates well, and behaves well confined in a room during the day. She was not house-trained when she arrived, but has improved immensely. She will have the occasional accident if not taken out immediately upon wake up or arrival of her person. She chews up balls and chewy children's toys (plastic things) but has ignored stuffies (leaving them for the other resident mal).

She gets along ok with the other senior female in the household; although they've had words about food at times, the fights have been verbal only and easily diffused. She tried relentlessly to get the other dog to play with her when she first started feeling well, blocking her and slamming her, as only mals can do. The resident gal wants none of it so Jax has backed off considerably, though she runs alongside her, ever hopeful, at least several times a day.

Jax would make a great addition to a family with another active dog who wants a pal. She has obviously not always been a street dog as she can be gentle and is very happy lying on a rug by your side as you surf the net or talk on the phone. She's a little bit hand shy and cowers if something large is waved by her head, or if shouting goes on around her. But these events have never caused her to even growl, much less snap. She knows "sit" but not much else. However, with her desire to please and ball drive, I suspect she could learn a lot. She has a lot of love to give, and a lot of life left in her. She deserves to live her final years in comfort with loving people around her.

Happy - Happy - Happy

Happy is the best word to describe Lexi along with loving. She always has a wagging tail and affectionately wants to be by my side while giving kisses.

She can also be a tomboy. She plays very well with my female dog and they play equally with neither being dominant. When it comes to my two males, she constantly runs alongside and behind them and does snap at their necks and rears. So she can be a rough player with them in her desire to gain their attention and keep up with the boys.

It took her only one day to be house trained. She is well behaved in the house and has never destroyed anything. She is also good with giving up her food bowl to me and I can take it or a bone out of her mouth without any concern.

Because of her being in demand for attention and kindness, her only fault is wanting to jump up on people, but she is slowly improving with that.

She is about 12-18 months old, heartworm negative, spayed, and weighs 47 pounds.

Since she is young and full of energy, it would be nice for her to go to a home where there is another dog playmate and in an active home where she can get a lot of exercise.

Ox is a big loving boy that would be happy to play with you until you can no longer tolerate tossing his toy across the room.

Ox is a large, 14-16 month old neutered male malinois. He's a big loving boy that would be happy to play with you until you can no longer tolerate tossing his toy across the room. Ox is excited to please you and make you happy and in the short time he has been here we have been working on his listening skills. He has improved so much! Ox plays well with the other Malinois in the house. He loves to snuggle and despite his size he will try to get into your lap. Ox is a very energetic and playful boy and needs an active companion..

Ox has a little resource guarding issue with toys but has improved vastly in his time here. Housebreaking is nearly complete with just the rare accident but if kept to a good schedule he should be rock solid soon. Ox has a fascination with the reflection of lights. We are still working on breaking this habit of his. Although it is not his favorite place he does crate well.

Neutered, microchipped and up to date with shots, Ox is ready for his forever home. If you feel that you and Ox would be a good match fill out his adoption application and his coordinator will be in touch.

For more information about Ox, please contact: Julie.
