Axel loves the water and with his high ball drive, might make a good dock diving, agility or scent-training dog.

Axel is a 15-month old male Belgian Malinois. He is neutered and came to his foster home with a basic knowledge of commands and is house trained. Despite his young age, he is good in the house when left alone and has not shown any tendencies to be destructive. He has high ball drive and should only go to a home with a fenced yard and/or no children.

Axel is respectful of the other dogs and people in his foster home. He loves the water and with his high ball drive, might make a good dock diving, agility or scent-training dog. He is about 25 inches at the shoulder and 65 pounds and has handsome yellow eyes. Once he has bonded with you, will make an extremely loyal companion. Despite his high ball drive, he settles well in the house or car and is friendly and biddable. Most of all, he prefers to be with his people.

Axel will only be considered for a Malinois - experienced home in the northeast region: CT, MA, NY, NH or VT.

For more information on Axel, please contact: Don Furlani - 214-336-8270.

Bailey is a beautiful 9 year old Malinois who is full of energy and love.

She weighs about 85 pounds and is fully vaccinated and spayed Don't let her age fool you, she has lots of energy, is lots of fun and loves nothing more than to be given a job!

Her favorite toy is a ball. We found a lacrosse ball to be the best fit and lasts the longest. She also loves a good game of tug of war, and usually wins every time! Here is a video of her playing ball

She is on guard, keeping watch over her family at all times and loves to cuddle up at the end of the day. She is very health conscious and loves a good size carrot for a tasty treat! ??

She enjoys chasing chipmunks and bunnies so having a fence is a very good thing. She has high prey drive so would do best in a home without cats, small animals, or small children. She is used to being an only dog in a home so we think she would be happiest as the only dog.

She is initially cautious of strangers and takes a bit to warm up to them but once properly introduced, she is very excited to meet and greet and will ask to be petted. She will sit and stay nicely for attention when asked.

She loves the car and prefers the middle seat with a window open.

Bailey was an outstanding student and graduated training school where she learned sit, stay, down, leave it, come and heal. She also walks very nicely on a leash. She is highly food and toy motivated so training is a lot of fun.

Bailey is in search of a home where she will get lots of attention with a family that would enjoy involving her in their everyday activities.

If you are interested in adding this sweet girl to your family, please contact: RaeAnn.

Chewy is currently living at a veterinarian's office and would love his own home!

Neutered possibly mixed malinois about 5 years of age. heartworm tested negative, but did have a faint positive lymes. Very good disposition with children and adults. He was brought into us on April 28, 2017 through the police department. "Chewbacca" was rehomed back in 2012 and the new Owner is unreachable. He is microchipped already. "Chewbacca" knows basic obedience commands, such as sit-stay, down- stay, come, roll over, and shake and he is great on leash! He loves his squeaky toys and jumping up to get them. When he was dog tested he showed interest but dominance. Not aggressively but he certainly wants to play. Chewy has shown no interest in the clinic's cats.

His disposition is very loving, and cuddly.

For more information on Chewy, please contact: Neeka or call the clinic at 708/672-6166.

Dakota, 6.5 yr old, spayed female - FL

I took Dakota into my home in January when her owner couldn't care for her anymore.

Dakota (we just call her Kota) is 7 years old and 65 pounds. I took her into my home in January when her owner couldn't care for her anymore. She lived with a small chihuahua her whole life and does well with other dogs. She's very friendly with both dogs and people. Rarely jumps on anyone unless she's very excited to see them. She is fully house trained and non-destructive. At her previous home she was left from 7am - 6pm 5 days a week with no accidents of any kind. Since being with me I am home all day but she is fine any time I have to leave. She rarely barks unless someone knocks on the door.

She LOVES to play ball and frisbee. She brings the ball back every time and drops it right in my lap. When she's done playing to goes to the door to be let back in. Since I don't have a fence she has to be on a tie-out when I take her outside. She will also chase any outside cats. Inside the house she is fine with cats. My adult cat is mean to her so she barks at it but she plays well with my kitten. Kota has a lot of energy but sometimes she pushes herself too hard. If she gets too involved in chasing the ball she will sometimes chase it until she collapses. So when shes starting to look shaken I just take her back inside and make her take a break.

I've taken her many places and she does well everywhere she goes. The problem is that her and my female Dutch shepherd do not get along. They fight constantly. After months of the fighting and doing all we can to prevent it, we've decided it's best we find a home for Kota that better suits her.

Note: Her previous owner used lasers to play with her so she tends to chase shadows and reflections. It's not excessive and she's never destructive when chasing but I make sure no one uses flashlights or anything excessive reflective around her. It causes her to whine and walk the house obsessively.

* Also, at her previous home she ate coconuts from the trees as the fell so her teeth are worn down. The vet says they are fine, just worn. Her breath doesn't stink at all and she doesn't seem to be bothered by it.

Flynn, 2 yrs old, neutered male - El Paso, TX

Photo of Malinois Foster Flynn - 20KB

A friend has realized the adoption they made of a Mal mix is more than they can handle and have come to the conclusion they need to find this dog a home that can give it much better attention.

The Dogs name is Flynn, very smart, tall, he just turned two, lives well with cats, but ends up in a kennel 12hrs a day with NO walk and ends up pacing the floor to get rid of the energy. He has no play time or exercise time due to the owner's lack of attention to the dog and the fence is so low in the back yard that he gets out all the time because he is bored. The neighbors know his so well that when he gets out they know to bring him back to the house.

He has all of his shots, and I understand he is chipped. The dog lives in El Paso, TX. I would like to find him his forever home with someone that understands this type of dog and can give him what he needs.

I want to keep this excellent dog from going to a dog pound/kill pound. He is neutered and has all of his shots. He has a chip and they have paperwork on him.

For more information on Flynn, please contact: Randy of Guardian & Friend K9 Training or call: Direct(719) 574-0931 Cell(719) 460-2784.

Helios, 2 yrs old, neutered male - MN

Fee: $350

Photo of Malinois Foster Helios - 24KB

Helios came into foster care when he was unclaimed at a shelter.

The shelter recognized him for what he is (a malinois) and knew they weren't the best venue to place him through, so they contacted us.

Helios is a fun, silly, busy boy. He's a typical malinois in that he likes to have things in his mouth. He has some toy drive, but seems to be happiest just carrying things around. He is very active an seems to have endless amounts of energy. Helios would be an AMAZING distance running partner, or a buddy for a very active person.

Helios is leery of new people when he initially meets them. He warms up w/in a few minutes, but is hesitant at first. Helios keeps his crate and kennels clean. He has played around on agility equipment and seemed to enjoy it. Helios would probably be a FAST agility dog once he learns the game. This boy can cover some serious ground. Helios is one of the few malinois we get in who doesn't necessarily need to go to a sport/performance home. Don't get us wrong, he still needs an insanely ACTIVE home who will take him to training, teach him new things, and give him a LOT of physical and mental outlets. Helios would do best in an adult home. He is good w/other dogs his size (he likes to play WWF style). He is not kitty safe. He will enjoy playing in a fenced yard and respects fences 5' and higher. Please do your research on this breed before applying. They are NOT German Shepherds and they are NOT easy going family pets. Helios will be an amazing partner for someone, but we will be very specific on his placement.

For more information on Helios, please contact: Melissa www.bcrmn.org.

Katniss, 1 yr old, spayed female - Los Angeles, CA

Fee: $375

Katniss is a sweet, energetic special needs Malinois.

She is always up for play, but will settle and enjoys working on obedience or another fun activity. She is biddable and focuses on her handler when out in public. She has been exposed to trips to the local hardware store, nosework training class, and will sit quietly when she comes along for a lunch appointment. She is approximately one year old, and has had some form of prior head trauma in her young life. As a result, she has mild facial focal seizures daily, and limited vision in her left eye. She is currently on anti-seizure medication, and also takes CannaPet for relaxation. Her seizures last 5-15 seconds, and she appears to be unfazed when they end.

Katniss is a currently approximately 55 lbs. She has ample bone structure, and looks to be a bigger girl when she matures.

She is currently living with 3 other Malinois and a French Bull dog. She plays hard and a small dog is not recommended to avoid any injuries to the small dog. She would do best with a submissive larger male, although a being single dog would give her undivided attention. No children please as she is at times exuberant in her play style.

Due to her limited vision, she prefers to walk next to you when out on a hike. She does love to run however, and will run in a big circle with such enthusiasm that you can't help but smile. Katniss has a gift of bringing joy to people. One of her favorite things to do is to snuggle with her foster Mom.

Katniss knows sit and down. She lays quietly near the fireplace when she joins her foster family to watch television, but will often engage in a game of bitey feet when she first comes in. Katniss has learned to use a dog door, however she is not reliably housetrained as she will default to circling when she is trying to find her way to the door. She sleeps in a crate at night, and does not potty in her crate if taken out to potty near bedtime. She does potty on command.

Katniss is crate trained, and travels well in the car.

Katniss requires a special home. One that understands that although she has a disability, she is still a young Malinois that needs exercise for both her body and mind. Katniss has been started in Nosework, and her favorite game is "find the hotdog". Katniss is spayed and is current on vaccinations.


He is currently located at Brother Wolf Animal rescue in Asheville NC.

For more information on Katniss, please contact: Jan or call 828-712-7003.

WEST COAST ADOPTIONS ONLY, HOWEVER, if application is strong we may consider placement in other Western US states.

Mali loves children (my 12 and 13 year old kids adore her) and craves affection

Mali is a 3 year old female that has been spayed and chipped (she is past the puppy stage). She loves children (my 12 and 13 year old kids adore her) and craves affection. Once she trusts you, she may crawl up in your lap or give you a hug. Mali knows her basic commands. I have been working with her on Sit, Down, Stay, Recall (Here), Outside, In, and Go (she loves the Go command).

She is house broken and, so far, has had no issues or accidents in our home. She also Crates on command (most of the time the first time she is given the command :-) ). She's good on a leash (short or long) and with a little time would be great. She is very intelligent and wants to please. She loves to be praised for good behavior and rewarded for a job well done.

That being said, Mali is high speed / low drag! She has a switch that is easily flipped. She's very fast and she does have pray drive (No cats). Mali is always ready to work. She loves to play ball, tug/pull and is starting to get her timing down with catching a Frisbee. She could walk or jog forever but she really loves to sprint. I think she would do very well at competitive dock diving, agility, fly ball or whatever she is directed to do. I love Mali's sound temperament, hardiness, and physical structure. I think for the right person, she would do anything you ask her to do. Mali is protective of her home and family. She will let you know when a stranger is in your yard and let the strangers know, as well.

I am currently fostering Mali because her person has a deteriorating illness and can no longer provide Mali the care and attention she needs and deserves.

If you are seriously interested in experiencing how incredible a dog like this can be, as an addition to your family and/or bonding with you, email me and we can talk about it. She needs to be placed in an active home where she gets the exercise (mentally and physically) a dog like this requires.

For more information on Mali, please contact: Shannan.

Melo, 3 yrs old, neutered male - Puerto Rico

Please meet Melo, a beautiful Belgian Malinois who is an owner surrender.

He was adopted as a little puppy three years ago, and has been a happy family dog (living with kids aged 5 and 9) until few weeks ago when his family left the island to the states. They tried to find him a home on the island, with no luck. One of our main volunteers, Marta Delgado who is copied here, is working this case. She says Melo is as sweet as a pie, good with children and adults, very friendly. Never been exposed to cats.

Right now he is being fostered by a woman who also has a rottie and the rottie does not like Melo. Evidently, they are both tied up in her yard. But the rottie escaped and attacked poor Melo, who now has a hematoma on his neck area as a result. He is being taken to the vet today. Obviously, for this reason, we are very anxious to get him into a better situation. He is probably very sad to have lost his family and also be in this unpleasant situation.

For more information about Molli, please contact: Marcia
