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.

Cinnamon is a year old spayed female. She loves kids and to run and play with other dogs (once she warms up to them). She had a rough start but now is full of energy and ready to go go go. Knows all basic obedience commands and is house trained and crate trained as well, With her being young she still has the puppy side of loving to always want a chew toy in her demeanor. She loves to be brushed, petted and get a bath.

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.

Jade doesn't have high drive, but is slowly learning the joys of playing with balls and toys.

Jade is a 2 year old female that is always ready to go go go. She doesn't have high drive, but is slowly learning the joys of playing with balls and toys. We think her drive can be built with steady exposure and training. Jade is fully crate trained, and 95% potty trained. She doesn't like storms but who does!! She is very food motivated and listens to you with such a forceful passion that you can't help but love her. It's all eyes on you when food is involved! She also LOVES to cuddle. The only thing she wants more than food is human affection.

Jade is a standard malinois at 45 pounds of pure force. She loves the water and hiking. She does have potential to do a sport well with the right guidance. Once her toy drive is built up, she could be a great dock diving dog, or even be great for other events like agility and rally. She wants to constantly be on the move when in the home, but had learned to lay down and relax by chewing on a tough chew or bone/antler.

Right now, she is being tested with cats and only seems to chase the outdoor ones. She does not do well with toy breeds or terriers. So we recommend only medium and large dogs in the home with her. She absolutely loves her male malinois friend she lives with right now, and they play and wrestle constantly. She has been okay around children, but as with any dog and kids, we recommend adult supervision at all times.

Jade will make a wonderful companion and is ready to find her forever home!!

Luna 5 yr old spayed female - SC

Fee: $300
Malinois Foster Luna - 15KB
Malinois Foster Luna - 16KB

If you want focus, Luna could be your girl!

She is totally focused when given a job - like retrieving a ball, finding a hidden ball or toy, patrolling for squirrels, or doing a perimeter search of a vehicle.

She's a great candidate for some type of nose work. She has the nose, the focus, the persistence, and is a smart, quick study.

Luna enjoys going for walks, and is a delightful companion walking nicely on a loose leash. She is very happy to meet people if they speak to her and let her approach them. If people do not invite her into their space, she ignores them. She has high prey drive, and if there are squirrels running about, she wants to chase them, so cats are also out. But she will respond to 'leave it, let's go'. (Okay – reluctantly respond!)

Luna LOVES to play ball, and is very good at it. She retrieves the ball - brings it right back for another and another throw - and another. She will need a fenced in yard so that she can continue her biggest enjoyment in life. She plays ball with intensity, and it is her 'happy place'. She understands the meaning of 'last one' and will drop the ball before going inside. She was extremely ball consumed when she first came into ABMR.

As with most Malinois, no cats, no tiny dogs, and recommend no children (maybe teenagers). Luna is a special dog who will win your heart if given the chance she deserves.

She has learned to give eye contact, and to enjoy being petted and brushed. She is blossoming, and I think she is just beginning her journey of being able to trust people. Luna does not like to be forced. She does much better when things are calm and encouraging. Her initial reaction to some new situations where she feels stressed or threatened is to get defensive. Her bark and body posture can be quite intimidating. A smile and a neutral, firm tone of voice can go a long way in diffusing a situation in which she feels stressed. On rare occasions, you may have to back off, Luna is not aggressive, but rather self protective. When she first came into foster care attention and affection were new experiences for her.

She does not get on the furniture, she readily gets into her crate, and ride well crated in the car. Very good many basic commands: sit, down, wait, get in, let's go, leave it, stay. She also knows: easy, go around, go behind, get on it, this side, go potty, get dressed, and drop it. We are working on 'come' – which is really reliable if you have a ball.

The vet estimated Luna to be 5 years old. Luna is a big girl - tall and 73 lbs., up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, has plenty of energy, is healthy and recently spayed.

For more information about Luna, please contact: Cj.

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.

Nora 8 yr old spayed female - FL

Malinois Foster Nora - 10KB

Nora is a beautiful 8 year old spayed female Belgian malinois that is looking for the perfect place to call home!

She adores being around her humans, and is cautious when first meeting other dogs, but then is fine with them. She has even been to dog parks and does great.

She is laid back and easy going for the most part, though she loves a romp around the yard and fetching a stick. She settles in the house and is a joy to have around.

Nora has not been around cats or children since she has been in rescue so we do not know how she is with either, she loves her people though, so older children that respect dogs shouldn't be a problem.

Nora would make a wonderful dog for a first time malinois home, or one that just wants a sweet companion that still has a little spunk, but is easy in the house.

For more information about Nora, please contact: Angela

If you want to apply for this dog, click Nora's Adoption Application which will automatically be sent to Angela, Nora's coordinator.
