See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the Northeast 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.

Abby 3 yr old spayed female - OH

Fee: $200
Malinois Foster Abby - 12KB
Malinois Foster Abby - 9KB

Sweet low drive girl looking for a quiet home.

Abby is a spayed, 3 year old female who is ready for her new, very special forever home. Sweet and loving, she wants to be your best girl! Abby has some separation anxiety and would do best in a home where someone is home more often.

She needs to be the only pet in the home and no kids or cats. She is lower drive with lower exercise needs than most Malinois, but still a fun dog! She would be content to go for a long walk and then sit at your side for hours!

Abby does have an old injury that causes her to have an off-gait, but it does not cause her any discomfort. She has little toy drive, but will do anything for a dog treat! She has some obedience training and walks well on a leash. She is crate and kennel trained, and housebroken.

Abby can go to an apartment/townhouse with landlord permission, and does not require a physical fence as long as she is kept on a leash and supervised when outside.

For more information about Abby, please contact: Dana

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.

Malinois Foster Gypsy - 23KB

Hello everyone, my name is Gypsy, and I have a story to tell you. I think I'm a little over 1 year-old, but who keeps track?

One summer night, someone heard me on their deck. I was thirsty so I was banging the water dish against the patio door. This nice man came out, in the middle of the night, and gave me some water. He lived on a dead end road in a city in Minnesota. He thought he would tie me to the tree in his front yard so my owners could find me. Well, they didn't ever come. Next I was placed in a police car and taken to the animal impound. That was a scary place.

Someone contacted ABMR, where I found a great foster home. My foster mom has had me from the time I entered rescue in the summertime. I was quite scared at first and didn't understand what was going on. It was hard to think that I was an unwanted girl, roaming the streets. She took me to the vet and found out I was healthy and weigh about 50 pounds and I'm a good little girl. I had to be spayed and that wasn't a very fun experience, but I was well taken care of and I am not even scared of the doctor.

I have been to "school" a few times, and I have learned about obedience and dog puzzles. I really like doggie puzzles. They keep my mind busy and my nose working, and I always find a bite of kibble or a treat when I am done. I am good at commands- sit, stay, come, out. I also know how to walk on a leash pretty well. I live with another Malinois and we get along pretty well. We like to play, and wrestle around, but it is all in good fun.

It's almost Christmas and I've been a good girl. I've been asking Santa for a forever home. I like other dogs, I'm crate trained, I love walks. I've heard from others how fun dog sports are and would love to give it a try. My main goal is to please my humans and I stick to my person like Velcro. It doesn't take long for me to decide a person is alright if they treat me right. I am happy snuggling, chewing on a bone, or out gallivanting around town.

If you're able to give me my very own home, please contact: Jim or Stevie.

Pepper 8 yr old spayed female - MI

Fee: $300
Malinois Foster Pepper - 19KB

Malinois Foster Pepper - 29KB

Hey everyone! My name is Pepper. I don't know what I did wrong.

I was living with my family and then they dropped me off at this scary place. They never came back for me and I heard people talking that my time was up if no one took me soon. I was worried. Then a nice lady named Stevie Marie showed up. She put me in a temporary place and said I had to go to a Foster home. I didn't know what that was but I was going to find out. Then I went in a whole bunch of cars as people handed me off from one car to another. I ended up in a house in Michigan and I got really scared again. I just want to stay in my crate. My foster dad said I has to move again because I'm not taking up well with his furry son and daughter. I ended up with another nice Foster lady and her son.

I love to play and play ball. Tennis balls are my favorite. I'm just looking for a place to call my own. If there is any way that you could help me out by giving me a place to stay and gradually come out of my shell, I would so appreciate it. I heard people talking that there were puppies in rescue and they all got taken the same day. I'm not sure I can compete with puppies but I would love a chance anyway. It hardly seems fair that a fun-loving gal such as myself can't find the perfect family. I miss my family so much. I just don't know why they didn't have time for me anymore.

Ryker 2 yr old neutered male - MI

Malinois Foster Ryker - 30KB

Ryker's role in a movie would be an ever-so-slightly aloof cowboy.

Y'know, the kind that has a crush on a pretty girl, but isn't sure how to tell her? After a slow (really slow), thoughtful courtship, he'll bring you toys he knows both of you like to play with and jam them into your belly and you'll know you've won his heart. See, 'affection' looks different for all of us.

Real talk: Ryker is a giant - in stature, potential, and heart. He got a late start in the structure and routine he values (highly!), but once he knows the lay of the land his boundaries can be gradually expanded. He gravitates towards one person initially and new people introductions need a prescribed routine. He values training, however, he comes with some history of some training tool overuse (and some fallout), so a plan would need to be discussed. True to his cowboy roots, he'd prefer a simple dog's life in a country setting with room to run. He's just started exploring his foster home's yard and loves sniffing out all the morning critter paths.

If he stays in Michigan, he comes with bonus training and transition help from his foster.

Ryker bonds very well to his special person. He often prefers that one-person home where he can bond really closely. He requires an experienced handler who will take the time and patience to let him settle in well. When he finally bonds it is totally worth all the effort when he looks at his person as if they are his stars and moon. Ryker really only requires a home that will take a slow and steady pace for success.

Ryker's coordinator prefers to keep him in the general proximately of his foster or coordinator. Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan would be ideal locations. Ryker's preferred setting is a nice, calm, country setting. He loves his peace and his room to run.

For more information about Ryker, please contact: Jim or Stevie.

Sushi is a 1 year old pocket rocket that adores her people. Currently located in Michigan. Sushi wanted to write her story in her words.

Hi, my name is Sushi I am about a year old and I am looking for my forever home! Foster mom says I am a pocket rocket, whatever that means! I weigh 40 pounds and will probably not get much bigger but that is a huge improvement from when I was found chained to a stop sign… I only weighed 20 pounds!

I was very lucky that when I was found in Baltimore MD the shelter somehow got in touch with American Belgian Malinois Rescue! When they found me I had no fur from my ribs back to my butt due to the horrible fleas, I hate fleas, and I even had pneumonia!

Now, I no longer cough or have the pesky fleas and all of my fur has grown back! Well, that was until I "got fixed" last week and they shaved me, whatever that means! All I know is that foster moms says that I am ready for my very own forever home!

So, here I am writing about myself in hopes to find my very own home!

I love to run as fast as I can around the yard! I think I would be very good at agility or even fly ball!

I LOVE to play and can't have too many toys. This is a short video showing me playing with two of my favorite toys: a ball and a squeaky toy:

I also track things through the yard and on our walks and foster mom says I have a "deep nose" whatever that means. Speaking of the yard, I know that is the only place to go, no accidents in the house for me. I am kenneled at bedtime and when foster mom goes to work and I can hold it the entire time!

I do not have a lot of drive but I am very smart and very active so foster mom says I need an experience Malinois person… I really just need firm and consistent direction and love. I have only been around a cat once at the vet… I did not know what to think but I did not chase it or try and eat it but I was on the leash and I was practicing my new manners.

I am a bit protective of my foster mom but she has been taking me on walks and I get to meet all kinds of people! And sometimes when people come over I get a bit barky but I am just letting foster mom know there are here.

I had a vacation for 10 days in a board and train and boy do they love Malinois! While I was there I worked on my leash manners and not jumping or nipping… I am getting much better but I do not think I should have a forever home with small kids… I am continuing to go to classes on Thursday nights so I will get to be around other pups who are also working on their manners.

I have a foster brother and sister that I am not allowed to be around very much… my foster sister ignores me and we get along fine, she is top dog here… but my foster brother can drive me nuts! When we play we start nice but it can get a bit rough, even for a Malinois! So… we are kept separate. While I was on my vacation at the board and train I was introduced to other boys and I played just fine… but I was the top dog. I might be smaller but want to be in charge!

So, if you are looking for a smaller, loving, full of energy Malinois to add to your pack that will love you and be your best friend, look no further!!
