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.

Ciara 4 yr old spayed female - KY

Energetic, active and playful, Ciara is looking for her own forever home.

Ciara is a 4-yr old spayed female. She is on the larger size, about 60-65lbs and is very strong! She is a very nice dog, very active and likes to keep busy. She loves to play ball and tug, go for long walks, hikes, and run alongside a bicycle. She is very smart and could probably be a fun performance prospect for a hobby competitor—agility, nosework, rally. She is athletic and can jump very high! Ciara is medium drive but is still a Malinois and needs daily exercise and stimulation and then will settle in the house with a nice off switch. Ciara is an independent and confident dog, and while she likes attention, she is not overly affectionate or as demanding as some Malinois. She is friendly towards other people with proper introductions. She is crate trained but does not like being confined and has some anxiety in her crate but will settle. She has been loose in the house during the day and at night and when her foster mom is out, Ciara has been confined to a small, closed-off room and for the most part, has not been destructive. (other than one worn-out and already-ripped dog bed that really had it coming anyway!) She is housebroken and knows basic obedience. She needs some work walking on a leash—she is very strong and pulls a bit. She is trained to run alongside a bicycle and loves this activity!

Ciara lives with a pack of other dogs and gets along with them all, including a small dog. She loves to play! She has very high prey drive and cannot go to a home with cats or chickens.

Overall, Ciara is a confident and sensible Malinois. She is not noise-reactive, and is very observant of her surrounding, but not over reactive. She is independent and more of a leader than a follower in her pack. She is good for bath time in the tub and nail trims, and at the vet.

Ciara will need someone experienced with this breed or other strong-willed, active dogs. While she has shown no aggression, she can test limits and likes to get her way. She does have nice food and toy drive and tries to please! She has not been around young children, so kids under 10 are not recommended. No cats/chickens. Ciara will need a physical fence in yard and supervision since she can jump very high. She would not do well with being left along for very long hours everyday, although she might do very well at a reputable doggie-daycare. She would prefer a home with at least one other similar-sized dog to play with.

Ciara is up-to-date on all vaccinations and heartworm negative.

I can hardly wait to meet my FUREVER Family.

Hi! I'm Hero, I can hardly wait to meet my FUREVER Family. I have SO much energy, just today, my foster dad threw my favorite ball for me over 40 times; I kept telling him that I wasn't tired, but I think HE was because he wanted us to go back inside. Hmmm, I wonder if he gets tired because he only has 2 legs and I have 4. Anyway, my humans like to play ball with me because I have a gentle mouth and place the ball right into their hands (that way they can throw it again right away).

I love going for long walks by the creek with my foster mom and furry-foster sister; Jubilee is older than I am and teaches me how to be a polite Malinois. I love playing with her. I get to go so many places with my foster family because I am a very good passenger. I have my very own crate that I can lay down until we get to where we are going; sometimes I'll chew on a Kong while we drive. When it's time to get out, I wait patiently for my human to put my leash on, then I can go and explore with them!

When I go on walks, some noises still startle me, but my foster mom distracts me so I can get used to new things. I especially like going places where there are families and older kids; maybe someday soon I will have my own person or family of my own that I can play ball and go on long walks.

I am hungry a lot – but that's because I play a lot. One of my favorite things to do is to bark at and play "soccer" with my food bowl or water pail when I'm done eating or drinking water. My foster family thinks it's funny to watch, but they don't let me play that way very often – usually, if they get distracted with another dog I can get some "bowl time" in – it's so much fun!

One thing you should know about me, though, I don't like boy dogs, especially if they are the same age as I am. I really like my foster brother Harvey, but he's kind of like an older uncle, very patient with me. Most of the time, I leave him alone, I think he likes it that way. There is a small dog in my foster home, he's really barky – he makes me mad, so my foster family won't let us play together.

I have had some unusual training: I tried out for an Urban Search and Rescue team – that was so much fun! I was too wild for my foster family though, so that didn't work out. But I love learning new things, I'm super smart and if there is a high energy activity I want to try it! I know I'd be super good at agility, hiking in the hills… I like getting my feet wet by the creek, but I don't think I'm quite ready to swim yet. Maybe you can take me swimming?

I love family time! My people spend a lot of time with me in the family room. I know manners are important, so I am very good. I don't jump on the furniture or bug them with toys if they are playing a game or watching a movie. Most of the time I will lie on the floor and chew on a bone (I like bones). I'm really good at telling them when I need to go potty, humans don't seem to like it when I potty inside, so I don't do that anymore. I hope my FUREVER person or family will let me spend time with them inside because I love people time. My foster mom told me that she will make sure that I get a lot of attention, playtime and leash time with my FUREVER people. She told me that their names would be "Patient and Experienced" … those are kind of funny names, but I think a names like that will be important for me AND my FUREVER people to be happy.

So, that is just about most of what you need to know about ME, Hero.

Karma is a young mini-Mal.

She his medium drive and totally full of energy. She loves to play with other dogs once introduced properly and has now started to learn the joys of laying on the top step in the pool relaxing. She has a very high food/treat drive and can be fussy at times, only cause she wants to be outside or on the go go go. She is crate trained and house trained.

Mazy 1 yr old spayed female - FL

Fee: $350
Malinois Foster Mazy - 25KB
Malinois Foster Mazy - 23KB
Malinois Foster Mazy - 31KB

Meet Mazy, an energetic, athletic, high drive and fun-loving girl with amazing potential for agility, barn hunt, scent work, or any fun sport.

With prey drive to the point of recklessness, Mazy needs work on building focus and attention. She needs a job, i.e. a lot of daily activity. Mazy is "that Malinois" whose off switch is in the ON position most of the time. She loves to go for long hikes and will run for miles alongside a bicycle. She would be an excellent jogging partner for the serious runner. I have biked with her 2 ˝ to 3 miles and she loves it, so running would be right up her alley. This girl NEVER tires! She loves to play, play hard, play all day. In the yard, she will chase a tennis ball but will drop it for the jolly ball, her favorite toy. We have introduced her to the swimming pool with hopes that she may show interest in dock diving. After a long day, she will eventually settle in the house if she has had enough exercise and activity.

Mazy is only a little over a year-old, spayed, and up-to-date on all vaccinations, heart-worm negative, and healthy. She is crate trained, house-trained, and will only bark, just once, if she has to go out. She has made amazing progress in her foster home and is now environmentally stable and confident, and ready for her very own forever home. Currently located in South Florida, but reasonable transport is always an option.

A physical fence is required for Mazy due to her extremely high prey drive – and due to this high drive, she wouldn't be good around small dogs, cats, chickens, or other small animals. She has not been tested around children - but she is a clacker so a dog savvy child older than 10 may be fine (clacking is jaw snapping and is a sign of extreme happiness; some find it endearing because it means our dog is happy!). Mazy is not overly affectionate, so don't expect a cuddler – but she is accepting of people and other dogs with proper introductions, and will bond well with her family. However, she does need to be reminded of her manners when playing with other dogs as she exhibits resource guarding of toys – and especially food – but has not shown this behavior with people.

This beautiful girl just wants to have fun 24/7.

For more information about Mazy, please contact: Cindy.

Sync is an incredibly sweet Malinois that enjoys human companionship.

She has energy but is calm in the house. She is house and crate trained and would do well in a home with a male dog of similar size. She has previously lived with kids and really enjoyed them.

Sync enjoys at a minimum some activity i.e. quick game of chuck-it or a 30 minute walk.

She is very well behaved on leash and knows basic commands.

Zeus 8 mo old neutered male - FL

Fee: $375
Malinois Foster Zeus - 9KB
Malinois Foster Zeus - 13KB

Malinois Foster Zeus - 15KB

ABMR's Zeus is looking for a forever home! Zeus is a loving and sweet boy and has a nice temperament.

Like many 8 month old Malinois puppies he is rambunctious and will chew anything in his path. He's slowly learning manners.

He is mouthy in true Malinois puppy style and can't resist the urge to gnaw on the closest forearm or hand. He is just past teething, has a lot of growing to do, and likes to chew. He currently tries to bite and chew on his leash and will need training and guidance to prevent this behavior. Although unsure of new surroundings, he seems to love all people and can get a bit over excited and mouthy.

Zeus is very food motivated and has some prey drive. Even with this, he is slow to play fetch. His interest in the ball and fetch could be built with the proper training and games. He's not a fan of the heat and humidity in FL and likes to lounge on the couch.

Zeus loves his toys, kongs, antlers, and hand-me-down bark box toys. There is not a plushy that has been able to stand up against him.

Not quite to the point of separation anxiety, Zeus gets pretty upset if someone leaves the room even when others remain. He will jump at the door to try to follow the person leaving. Zeus gets very excited when he sees other dogs. His puppy energy can be too much for some dogs. With proper intro he's been great with some dogs.

He's currently being crate trained, but not fully use to it. He doesn't resist the crate too much and needs some extra encouragement sometimes. He does enjoys a kong stuffed with treats or kibble while in the crate. He will whine for a bit in the beginning but calms down within a few minutes and has been fine for longer periods in the crates. He has had no accidents.

Zeus has been exposed to cats and he is NOT cat safe due to his high prey drive. Cats are definitely not recommended with him.

Zeus needs a patient family who will work with him and be committed to his training.

If you are interested in providing a loving and active home for Zeus, please fill out an adoption application.

For more information about Zeus, please contact: Cindy.
