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.

Blue ended up in a shelter when her owner was 'detained'.

Blue is a beautiful, sweet 3 yo spayed female. She ended up in a shelter when her owner was 'detained'. When she came into rescue, she was overweight and had poor muscle tone but her foster family has been giving her the exercise she craves and sorely needed and she is thriving in their care. She is still large for a female, weighing in at almost 70lbs but is now healthy and loves her daily runs with her foster mom.

Blue is very loving and bonds tightly to her humans. She is wary of strangers and does best if people allow her to decide how to approach and interact. Once properly introduced, she is awesome. She can be protective when strangers enter her house so again, proper introductions are important. She is very sensitive and flinches when someone speaks in a large, loud voice or if someone moves too quickly. It is as if someone used a heavy hand with her. She naturally gravitates towards woman more than men and adores her foster mom. However, her foster dad has made the effort to build a relationship with her and she is now very bonded to him. Due to her size, energy, and sensitivity, Blue needs a forever home that does not have young children (children under 14).

She absolutely loves her Malinois 'foster brother' Finn and plays really well with him. She can be reactive to other dogs and bark when on leash due to being anxious and a desire to play (there is no aggression). Her anxiety dissipates when not on leash. She plays rough and has huge prey drive so will not be placed in a home with cats, small dogs, or other small animals.

Blue is housetrained and crate trained. She is toy and food motivated and loves praise. Once her human spends the time and energy to build a relationship with her, she is all 'in' and very biddable. She knows basics like sit, stay, down, and come. She is very strong and can pull quite hard on leash. Due to her size and strength, she could easily pull someone where she wants to go. Her foster family is working on this with her.

Blue is in search of a forever home where her family can spend the requisite time working her mind and body and a family that wants to make her an integral part of their daily lives. She has great potential and has blossomed so much just in the short few weeks since living with her foster family.

Here are a couple of videos of Blue:

Once in a Lifetime Dog

Grimm is approx. 66 lbs., neutered, HW negative and UTD on all shots. He is a great dog and will make someone a very nice active companion. He is crate trained, loves to hike, play fetch and tug. He rides well crated in the car. He has good ball and great tug drive. Prey drive is low although squirrels can peak his interest, but not in a crazy way. Walks great on a leash and can pull if he sees someone bouncing a ball on their property.

Grimm is a handsome, young, goofy boy who is eager to learn and needs a human who is ready to continue his training to make sure he becomes a good citizen. Like most Malinois, he is sweet but pushy. He needs clear boundaries and obedience training. He already knows basic commands (sit, down, stay) and knows to wait to be released to eat. He is like a puppy in a 2 year old body. He loves to try new things and is so much fun to interact with. He is ready and willing to please. He is super easy to redirect and just wants to be with you.

Although Grimm is easy going, when meeting new people or dogs he may initially be uncomfortable but does warm up with proper introduction. He gets along with other dogs (no alpha dogs) and loves to play. With other dogs (not humans) he can sometimes resource guard with toys and needs to be managed. He is very affectionate and has no idea how big he is so get ready for a smothering hug and sloppy kisses. We think he has spent a lot of his life in a crate so he is still learning how to be in a house. No small children, cats, or small dogs. Experienced dog savvy or malinois people only. Not for the first time malinois owner.

Kaley is a beautiful young girl ready to be a lucky owner's sidekick.

She is active, healthy, and loves to play. She is estimated to be 18 months old and is UTD on shots, spayed and weighs 55 pounds. She is a very happy little girl, ready for the next adventure.

She is fully house and crate trained, and loves pretty much any toy you offer her, love fetching and especially love her rope tug toy!

Her foster family has been working on basic obedience skills and Kaley is super smart and loves to learn.

Her ideal home is an active adult couple who are looking for a partner. She would excel at a fun "job" or some type or "work" as most Malinois do. Kaley would also be a great running or hiking partner.

Kaley needs a home without small critters (cats or small dogs) and she is not going to be suitable for children (for some reason she just doesn't like them). Kaley enjoys other dogs but is possessive of her toys so she just needs to be matched up with the right canine companion.

Here is a video of Kaley playing with her foster mom. Note: one should dress casual when playing with Kaley J:

She is a typical young Malinois that will thrive in an environment with structure and routine and will be a blast for someone looking for a dog that joyfully engages in training activities such as competition obedience or agility. If you would like to make this loving 'puppy' a part of your family, please contact Carol.

If you are looking for personality, cuteness and attitude all in one package, Lil' Bit may be the dog for you. She has it all!

She's a 1 year old looking for her forever home. A southern girl that proves she can rock even in the snow. Her ideal home would include another dog that would be her playmate. She is an easy, sweet dog with a huge personality. She will keep you laughing with her antics and attitude. She was a stray that came into rescue with a broken hip. She had FHO surgery and follow up recovery time. While a shorter leg will limit some sporting and endurance activities, there are so many more options where she will excel. She is spayed and microchipped. She is a people pleaser but has a bit of "Diva" in her thus the attitude.

She is currently in PA and transport within a reasonable distance can be arranged. Lil' Bit got a hold of Foster mom's computer and sent me her list of what she is looking for in her new home:

Hi Bonnie, how are you this lovely evening. If you don't know yet this is LilBit. I snuck into my foster moms office and locked her out and now I have her email account. And I even can type that's how smart I am!! My foster mom said she was going to send you an email but I figured it better be me that send it because I know the most of what I want in a forever family.

Please let everyone know I am a perfect beautiful pretty little girl. I like to be told I have a pretty face and that I'm very very cute numerous times throughout the day. Everyone should probably know about my little bit of a drinking problem... My foster mom says that's the least of anyone's worries. She says if she put a towel down beside my water I usually don't create a pond in your home. I look at it this way, if I Dribbble water on the floor you'll just have a very clean spot.

I am very clean in the crate and the house. If I need to go out I will gently bounce off the door. If the humans don't notice it then I will politely walked up to you and bark in your face repeatedly. If that does not work I will gently grab your hand with my pearly white teeth and guide you to the door. I wait patiently for my meals, you don't have to say a word to me I will sit and wait for you to tell me I am allowed to eat my meals.

I usually am very polite walking as long as I have my purple Martingale. Yes it has to be that color because that is my favorite. When I am out and about on the town I have met many different humans and canines. Many canines are now my good friends but I did meet one that was mean and obnoxious and tried to bite my leg so I don't like that one. Meeting new humans is always fun if I really like them I'll twist around her legs like a cat does. Speaking of cats it would probably be best if there were none in my new home. Even though I love kitties my foster mom says that's not a good thing. She says I'm way too interested in them.

I have learned this wonderful and amazing trick. Depending on what kind of facets you have on your sink I can jump up and turn them on, then I get freshwater whenever I want. I guess the problem is I didn't realize sometimes I accidentally flip the plug and I only flooded the bathroom one time so far BOL. I guess that goes back to my drinking problem. But what do you expect I can have one issue seeing as I have buckshot in me still to this day, and some crazy vet took my hip sockit out. And on top of that another vet took all my female organs. Though I still like my current vet... He lets me help him take paper out of his copy machine plus it gets me really good treats and lets me run around his unit whenever I want.

I love to run and play. I like to bounce on the furniture even though I'm not allowed. I enjoy a fun game of retrieving but it's according to my rules. I like to play tug with humans I know quite a few of the basic obedience stuff like sit and down I'm pretty good at the Recall too.

I do usually sleep on my own personal chair thru out the day. Of course the humans have to fluff my pillow's and keep my chair spotless. Occasionally I sleep on my foster mom's bed but sometimes I sleep in a crate at night. Either way is good for me as long as I have nice soft blankets in my crate. Are usually ask for four or five very soft blankets. Sometimes in my sleep I wake up and if I have a stuffed fluffy bed somehow it explodes I don't know how it happens. I sure know I didn't do it, I truly believe Karma sneaks in my crate at night and destroys my fluffy bed. So soft blankets are good. My vet even says that I should always lay on soft blankets because of my hip area will get calloused if I lay on a hard floor I'll have to admit I like to talk a lot. I have many different voices. Even when I'm working on obedience I always have to get the last word in.

Sometimes when I meet new people if I act like I'm scared they give me more treats. I really got them wrapped around my little paw. My foster mom yells at people and said don't reward her for that silliness, but they always do. My foster mom says I'm all Malinois I have tons of energy but I'm also an easy keeper. Whatever that means???

guess the perfect new home would be A family that would continue with my education. I enjoy doing obedience rally and some of the agility equipment is a blast. But my human would have to understand they would have to tell me when to stop because I would run and jump forever!!! I may never be a high-scoring competition dog because I never really can sit straight and my downs are a little slow. BUT my cuteness takes the lead. On the rare occasion when I really feel like it and I do Precision heeling. People that see me say I look like a Lipizzaner stallion... Human children may be OK as long as they are as much fun as my foster brother Remy was. Just kidding ... I like to play with kids but I can get pretty ruff for as tiny as I am OK I got to go now because I locked the office door but I think my foster mom just found the key I don't want to know I'm on the computer talk again soon bye

Lucy 6 yr old spayed female - PA

Fee: $300

Malinois Foster Lucy - 14KB

Lucy is high energy but has little interest in retrieving.

Lucy was originally found as a stray in CT. She has been living in her adoptive home for about two years but is now going after the other dog in the household. She is estimated to be about 6 years old.

Lucy has obedience training, is housebroken and crate trained.

She is high energy but has little interest in retrieving. She will play with a toy but quickly gets bored, walking or running with her is better. She is obedient on the leash and doesn't pull.

She loves attention and is very happy to lay on the couch, although she can be very clingy at times.

I'm pretty sure she was raised in a kennel because she is a spinner. When she gets the least bit excited she will pace in a circle around my island or spin. She is not food aggressive at all but will gulp it down in record time. She uses the special bowls for fast eaters. . Lucy has not been exposed to small chidren and will get ramped up if overly stimulated. We will not place her in a home with children under the age of 12.

She is wonderful with people but needs to be the only dog in the household. She is not a candidate for dog parks or doggy daycare. Please contact Marcia at mhcil@aol.com for more information.

Rebel - Survivor of Severe Neglect

Rebel, currently located in Vermont is looking for a home for for the holidays. Rebel was kept tied to a truck with another much older Malinois. They were both seized for cruelty during a raid and taken to a shelter in North Florida.

The older dog died of cancer shortly after he was rescued and Rebel was originally fostered in Florida. He was very emaciated and put on much needed weight and muscle. He is neutered and is heartworm negative. He is 5+ years old and is a very handsome, energetic dog. We are grateful to his new foster dad in Vermont who has taught him his basic commands and given him consistency.

Rebel was not worldly, he has learned a lot here and has been introduced to lots of different situations. Rebel wants to please and learns new things quickly. He enjoys the country life but could probably adjust to city living. Rebel is a good boy and will do best with an experienced Malinois person.

For more information about Rebel, please contact: Sara
