See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the Southeast 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.

Athena approx 4 yr old spayed female - FL

Fee: $325
Malinois Foster Athena - 14KB

Malinois Foster Athena - 23KB

Athena is one of the sweetest Mals you will ever meet, aprox 4 years young. She rarely barks and is not at all reactive to people or children.

Athena was turned into her trainer and has been living at a training facility for over three years. They reached out to ABMR because they know that she deserves more. We are transitioning her back into a home environment.

She loves to get pets and belly rubs and really loves to relax and sleep. She is extremely "fluffy" and needs to get back into shape, but has been doing great on our walks so we think she'll be able to get her weight controlled by feeding her quality food with fewer calories and increasing her activity level.

Our best guess is that Athena hasn't been on many walks for a long time, but thankfully she really seems to enjoy them. However her prey drive kicks in and she's extremely interested in squirrels and neighborhood cats. We've been walking approximately 2 miles a day. There are 2 cats in her foster home and hasn't been any issues so far.

We have not had good luck introducing her to other dogs yet. She's fine going on walks with other dogs, but does not like them in her space, like coming up to sniff her. So we recommend a very slow transition into a home with other dogs.

She does all the basic commands - heel, down, come, sit, stay, down, kennel, leave it, drop it, etc, but is a little rusty.

Like all Malinois, she loves to have something in her mouth all the time. She has shown to be destructive to pillows, but once she's given toys she's left the pillows alone.

She's not a high drive Mal but she is still a Mal and can be pushy and demanding at times, so will need an experienced handler to remind her of the rules. She does not like thunder or fireworks and needs a safe place like a crate or closed in a bathroom and given her space.

For more information about Athena, please contact: Keli

Ceiba 2.5 yr old spayed female - FL

Fee: $350

Malinois Foster Ceiba - 26KB

Check out this little girl. Her name is Ceiba (pronounced SAY-ba)

She is a 2 year, 50 pound girl that needed a new home due to family matters. I don't believe she was ever in a shelter or abused. She likes to watch TV with us and will go on alert when a doorbell rings (TV or the real one). Sometimes I find myself watching her watching TV. She loves her toys and is possessive with them. When we play fetch, it works better using a couple of balls.

After having her as our guest over the last couple of months, she has really opened up and has begun making other dog friends and has bonded well with my 8 year old German Shepherd boy, along with us.

Ceiba is good with our other two dogs and doesn't seem to care about cats. Sometimes she does show some jealousy (she barks and bounces like a tantrum) when I pay attention to the other dogs. It is kind of funny to see.

We have been leaving her out of the crate when we leave without incident.

She might be a good candidate for a first time Malinois owner due to how easy it was for her to integrate into our family and how easy going she is.

Overall Ceiba is a well rounded Malinois that I wouldn't hesitate to put around other pets or children.

For more information about Ceiba, please contact: Cindy.

Hutch is a healthy care free boy, who has had a rough start in life. Still working on putting weight on him and getting him more meat on his bones.

He loves to be outside lounging in the sun and watching the squirrels run across the fence. And when wanting to be outside will sit at the door and just look outside and serenade you with the working dog whine. With proper introduction to another dog, loves to play outside for hours and hours non stop. He and other foster Cinnamon who is approximately 8 months old will get out and play from the time the sun comes up till the sun goes down.

Knows basic obedience commands (Come, sit, down, place). He is crate trained and will go into a kennel or crate most of the time on his own but there are times when he still wants to play that he will have to be assisted. He is potty trained and never had an issue with accidents in the house or his kennel. He is a chewer and anything not bolted down will become a toy with him (especially sticks).

Best home for him is an experience Mal family and an active home. He has his moments still where he does not want people in his face and with this could end up with a bite. He has never done that to anyone here, and gets along great with my 12 & 13 year old. Unsure on cats due to none readily available to test, due to my outside cat is Mal savvy and will just go hang out else where.

His inside the house behavior is relaxed once he makes his rounds to ensure that all is safe and good to go. He will just chill out and lay down on a blanket on the floor beside you (no pets on living room furniture here). He is a cuddle bug and once he bonds with you wants to be your velcro.

You can't help but be attracted to and love sweet Mia.

If you are looking for a running or hiking partner this girl is ready to go. She has the muscle and energy to go as far as you want her to. With that being said she is a strong leash puller when she is in a new place and excited to explore.

She is between 2-3 years old. She is house trained and does not chew on or destroy anything. She does love to retrieve her tennis ball. She is quite comfortable being with you on the couch. She also crates up easily and rides in the car well and stays very calm.

She can be wary of new people. When she is adopted to her forever home it will take a couple of days for her sweet personality to come out and shine. But when she accepts her new people you will be rewarded with a loyal member of your family.

She shows no aggression to her human pack. She also interacts and plays well with other dogs. She is not dominant. She has not been tested with cats but with her interest in birds and wildlife we don't think she would be gentle with a cat.

Even though she is well behaved and calm in the house because she is so strong on a leash she is probably not suitable for young children as she could knock them down. NO small dogs & No children under 10 years of age.

For more information about Mia, please contact: Jack.
