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.

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.

Sweet and shy, Clipper is a playful, lower drive young male seeking an active home.

Clipper is about 1 year old. He is a very loving, soft and lower drive dog. He still will need an active home and he loves running, playing with toys and the other dog in the household. He can be a little rambunctious (he is still young). He does great with 4 paws on the ground but sometimes forgets his manners if he is really excited (playing with toys). He does have some toy and food drive and has been learning lots of new commands in his foster home. He knows sit, down, place and out. He has a decent recall and understands the clicker.

Clipper does really well with the place command. He can stay on his elevated pet bed and the cats can run by him without him breaking his place. The place command has helped him learn how to relax and settle in the home. Clipper also does well in the crate, and rides good in the car either crated or loose.

He needs slow introductions to strangers and other dogs. Once he warms up to you he is a big sweetheart. His fosters have been doing a lot of confidence building exercises with him which has helped tremendously. His new owner will need to continue building his confidence. We do not believe he was socialized very much and avoiding things that make him nervous is his go to method. He does well supervised with our cats, he wants to play with them. However, we have never left him unsupervised with them.

Clipper would do great in a home with a big yard to run. His favorite thing to do is chase after toys and run around with his big jolly ball in his mouth. He needs a patient handler and someone willing to continue with socialization and confidence building. He has come a long way since we got him but he can still be unsure of different things. Clipper will bark, not in an aggressive way but just unsure. He has been working on handler engagement and walking politely by our side which has helped a lot. Clipper finds young children scary so at this time a home with young children would not be a good fit. He gets along great with our male Malinois, but needs time and slow introductions with other dogs.

Overall Clipper loves being with his person and is always happy and full of kisses. He is a goofy boy and you will often find him play bowing at his human daring them to chase (outside of course). He would be a wonderful addition to a household that likes to run and hike.

Clipper is neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on all vaccinations.

Rico 13 mo old neutered male - MN

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Rico - 8KB
Malinois Foster Rico - 19KB

Rico loves to play and has a lot of potential if you wanted to do disk dog or some other fun sport.

Rico is a 1 year 1 month old who was bred by an international working dog kennel named K10. He unfortunately developed Masticatory Myositis and was unable to be considered for police work. He is finishing up a low dosage prednisone treatment for the MM but is expected to make a full recovery. He is neutered and up to date his vaccines. He is crate trained, house trained, and fence trained. He does great in his crate while we are gone for work and when we put him in there for some down time. He has wonderful ball, toy, and food drive. He is very good with fetch and dropping the ball for you. He loves to play and has a lot of potential if you wanted to do disk dog or some other fun sport.

I have been taking him with me for 3-5 mile runs at about a 9min/mi pace. He will pull for other dogs and the occasional person, but is easily redirected with treats - otherwise he is a great running companion. He walks OK on a slip lead, but he we have been training him to walk with a front facing harness because he pulls less. He can do sit/stay/lay down/paw and he's making progress with roll over. Rico loves to play battle with other dogs and to lead our dogs in a merry chase around the yard. We do recommend that he goes to a single dog home or to an owner that has experience with resource guarding as he has shown signs of it when it comes to his food bowl and tasty smelling people food. We recommend keeping him crated during meal prep and feeding him in his crate. All in all, he's just a really nice young dog with a lot of energy and drive and a goofy personality.

Scout 7 yr old neutered male - WI

Malinois Foster Scout - 20KB

Scout is in search for an active home that can keep him active physically and mentally.

Scout just turned 7 on December 17th; don't let his age fool you, he is as healthy and active as someone half his age. Scout was found as a stray; luckily due to his microchip we were able to find out his name and birthdate but unable to locate his owner, so his past is unknown. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and on heartworm & flea/tick prevention.

Scout is a very lovable and a social boy. He does very well with everyone he meets. He has basic obedience training sit, down, come, shake, and walks nicely on a leash, housebroken and crate trained. Scout is shows both food and toy drive. When it comes to toys, he loves tug and needs someone who has knowledge in correct toy play because he can get overly excited about them. Scout has been started in the very basics of nose work and would love a home that would continue that with him to teach him more.

After a long day full of activities, Scout loves to cuddle up with his family and relax. Scout gets along with the other large dogs in the house of both sexes. He needs a home with Malinois experience, and older children (10 years+). Due to his high drive he will not be placed in a home with small dogs, cats or small animals.

Scout can exhibit stubbornness if he doesn't want to do something/go somewhere and is sensitive about his collar being grabbed. I've been working with it but with someone new that will have to be worked with.

For more information about Scout, please contact: Jack.
