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.

Lilly is estimated to be about 3 years old, spayed, is fully vetted, and heartworm negative.

She does well around kids and loves playing with other dogs. Lilly has an overall lower drive, low toy drive, but a high play drive.

Lucy has the most soulful eyes you've ever seen, and she is a gorgeous girl.

You would have to be made of stone not to melt when she looks at you. Her foster parents say that she is incredibly sweet and loving, and has many quirks that would make you laugh

Lucy was found as a skinny stray in Topeka, but is at 47 pounds and still working her way up to a healthy weight for her frame. Her teeth are worn, either from being chained or kenneled. She may have had a litter in the past, but has been spayed while in foster care. Her foster family says that Lucy had not had much, if any, socialization when she came to them. They have been impressed with how quickly she learns and her focus. She has been soaking up new skills like a sponge. She is house trained now, and likes going in her kennel for a treat.

The first thing Lucy learned about is that she really likes massages. She didn't seem to understand what was happening the first time she was massaged, but quickly leaned into it. She especially likes being massaged around the base of the tail, but will let her fosters touch ears and feet without fuss. Lucy loves physical affection and has good recall, because she has learned that recall means attention! When her fosters hold out their arms, Lucy comes running to be petted.

Lucy's fosters say that she is a velcro dog to the max. When they sit on the couch, she wants to be between them. She likes to rest her head over the foster mom's shoulder, "It's almost like she's reading over my shoulder." This cuddle-bug loves people, but when she can't have a lap, she'll curl up around a pillow.

Lucy does well with bones smeared with peanut butter, balls, and likes using the snuffle mat. Like a lot of Malinois, she can vaporize a stuffed toy in a flash. Her foster thinks she might do well with nose work, or would be a good companion for someone who likes to run. Lucy seems to hesitate when it comes to jumping, so probably wouldn't love agility. Lucy is medium-to-high energy, but her fosters feel that she would be okay for a first time Malinois family if they had working dog experience and she had daily exercise.

Lucy is learning about life in the house, basic manners, not stealing food from the counters, and to wait her turn to go outside. She loves both her foster parents, and is learning to get along with the other dogs in the home. There were some issues with dog reactivity at first, but with the help of a behaviorist, Lucy is learning appropriate dog manners

She is beginning to be allowed to play with the other dogs and getting roaming privileges at home. Her foster says that Lucy recently had an hour long play session with the Tervuren and other Malinois in the home, and it went very well. Lucy played chase for a while, then took herself out for a timeout when she started to feel overwhelmed. Her fosters feel that she could share her home with a non-dominant dog if the introduction was very gradual, but that she would love being the only dog and soaking up all the snuggles

Lucy has not been exposed to children or cats, but loves to chase birds when she is outside. Her foster thinks she would be fine with older children. Her fosters say that she was timid at the vet, but was polite to the staff. They are still working on public introductions, so Lucy has not gone shopping or been around a lot of strangers. She enjoys car rides and is very treat motivated, so that's a good place to start.

Lucy has a sense of humor and will surprise you. She doesn't eat socks and shoes, but she will steal them! If you catch her in the act, she pretends she didn't know that the smelly things weren't for her. She also likes to carry her food bowl around after meals. This mischievous girl can send you on a scavenger hunt, but it's part of her charm. She also loves couch cushions. Her foster mom says it is adorable when she hugs them between her paws and snuggles them under her head.

Lucy makes her fosters laugh and they are proud of how much she has learned about life as a pet. Now that she's getting the hang of house life, she will be starting obedience class in April. Lucy has a very sweet temperament and lots of love for the right family.

She wants most of anything to show you affection, to snuggle, and to sleep by your side. She would thrive with a family of her own to help socialize her and teach her about the good life.

Taron 9 yr old neutered male - MI

Malinois Foster Taron - 17KB

Malinois Foster Taron - 8KB

I'm a true Gentlemen and looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself.

I'm so happy to introduce myself. I'm a true Gentlemen and looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself. I'm an older Gent who's just looking for a quiet, comfy home preferable in the country.

I'm just so tired of the hustle and bustle. And sometimes strangers just run up and hug me from behind. I say that's a firm NO. I don't like that, no way, no thank you ma'am. It's just rude.

It's one thing when my person does that, but I don't like that much love from strangers. I'm looking for a home with no kids because I am looking for some peace and quiet. I'm pretty good with most humans once I'm introduced property, but I don't like to party. I'm 63 after all and my partying days are long gone. I must say that I love a good game or fetch with a tennis ball.

That's my favorite. And my current humans taught me to play hide and seek. I love a good game of hide and seek and will look as long as needed to find my special human.

I'm pretty good in cars when I get practice. If it's been awhile, I tend to pant a little and just get uptight overall. But I don't cause much trouble in the car.

I know this is going to be surprising, but I typically ignore cats. Sometimes I will chase one and then figure out it's just a cat. With some redirection I will leave that bugger alone. I wouldn't trust me with one all on my own though, I'm a Malinois after all. The only cats I've know are outdoor ones. I've never lived indoors with a cat so I'm just not sure how I would feel about that.

I know some commands like sit, stay, down, shake, drop, and come. I'm pretty rusty on my leash commands. I will do darn near anything for a treat since I've been on a diet recently. I've been trying to get my figure back to impress the ladies.

Getting older is rough. I have a lot of issues with my teeth and am currently getting some treatment for that. I love dental chews and am hoping that a solid diet, proper chews, and more visits to the vet will improve my less than pearly whites. Even though I'm not perfect, I still have a lot of love to give and definitely want some lovin' back.

I find myself in need of a new home at the age of 9 years. Paws crossed and please, please, please consider giving me a home. I would love to live with someone who is retired, just like me.

Ideally a place that is just peaceful and quiet. Don't forget I still want to pay ball and stay in shape. I still love long walks. I'm pretty neutral when meeting respectful people and dogs along the journey.
