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.

Arko 7-8 yr old neutered male - GA

Fee: $250
Malinois Foster Arko - 14KB
Malinois Foster Arko - 7KB
Malinois Foster Arko - 29KB

Ark gives the best hugs, he just melts into you and looks at you with soft soulful eyes.

Arko is a 7-8 year old malinois. He is current on vaccinations, and just finished heartworm treatment, so he should test negative in the next few months- though he is no longer on activity restriction.

Ark gives the best hugs, he just melts into you and looks at you with soft soulful eyes. He hugs often and with joy. Why would he be so joyful? It's in his nature. One look at his notched ear will tell you he has not had much to be joyful about, most likely he was a yard dog, but that doesn't change who he is.

Arko knows basic obedience commands: sit, down, stay, come, front. He loves to practice during his walks. He walks well on a leash, but can be reactive to cats and squirrels. His prey drive seems to be high, so no cats or small animals. He gets along well with other dogs. He is friendly with people but he is a strong boy so he might knock over a smaller child, and has accidently nipped an arm when going for a toy, so no children for this guy as we don't want any accidents to happen. Don't let his age fool you though, he is very spry! He loves toys, give him a toy and see the puppy in him. He is more on the low/medium energy scale, but will still need regular exercise and stimulation.

He is housetrained as long as he is on a schedule- this is a big accomplishment since he was an outside dog before (we assume). He is trained to be in a large xpen in the house rather than a crate, and has broken out of a regular wire crate before. Arko needs to be supervised in the home as he is still learning house manners, things need to be kept out of his reach because everything is a toy to him. Fabric and plastic objects are his favorite toys, and he grabs them and shreds them. He has made me a better housekeeper for sure!!

He is a really loving and sweet guy that would appreciate any time and attention you want to share with him.

Callie, officially Kendall when taken in by ABMR, was found as a stray in the FL Everglades and is developing into a lovely companion dog.

Callie is a mid-energy level girl and is 3-4 years old. She's made such great strides! She wants to please, and thrives on a schedule, and her confidence is growing every week. Like many dogs, she has different 'inside' and 'outside' personalities.

Inside: she settles down easily, likes to cuddle on the sofa, is very affectionate, and self-entertains by chewing on an old bone. She sometimes engages in light play time with the other dogs in her foster home - a lab and a westie.

Outside: in the yard, her prey drive kicks in. She LOVES to run and play ball. She also is intense about chasing squirrels. She cannot be in the yard with the little Westie who loves to run fast. (She sees him as prey.) She has not been tested with cats, but assume it would not be safe.

She is very soft a raised voice may result in her cowering to the ground going into 'survival mode'. When she feels threatened or is surprised, her fear from her former life comes back and she wants to escape the situation, or bark at it, or shut down by flattening herself on the floor. When calmly introduced to something new, she is very accepting the next time she encounters it. Her new person will need to continue to work on building her confidence and trust in new situations.

Callie enjoys going for walks and does nicely on leash. She calmly meets people when on leash and slowly goes forward to seek their touch. Callie is crate trained (she sleeps in an extra large crate and is crated whenever I leave the house). She likes to ride crated in the car and loads easily. She will bark if she sees other vehicles close to her car!

Callie LOVES to run and play ball. Watch her catch in her video!

Dream Home: The dream forever home for Callie would be with an active retired person or couple, or a family with children over 10 years old where someone is home for part or most of the day. She would be on a schedule, and they would be consistent about her boundaries, would have lots of patience, and would help to build her confidence. They would go for a short walk or two every day, and play ball together in a large fenced in yard. There would be another dog in the family, (preferably a medium to large male), that would be her buddy. She would be loved and valued for her sweet disposition, playfulness, and intelligence, and she would lavish her people with attention and affection.

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.

Hello everyone, I'm Maddie I'm located in Alabama and approximately 2 years old and a typical Velcro dog.

I was seized from my owner and was never claimed. I am extremely loyal to my family, and need to know your ok to be there. I have a big brother malinois and the neighborhood dogs I like to play with, but don't trust me I like to run. I even like my foster dads two year old granddaughter. My perfect family would have another dog to play with and be home most of the day. I think my crate is scary so I will need someone to show me it is a safe place so I won't get in trouble when left alone. Keli Axe is my coordinator so reach out to her if you are interested in adopting me.

Malinois Foster Mitch - 18KB

Mitch is an energetic, enthusiastic, intelligent, and sweet puppy.

He can be initially unsure when meeting other dogs, but once he feels safe it's non-stop play. There are two other dogs in his foster home, an 8.5 year old GSD/Malinois and a 1 year old Malinois, and he plays with both of them well. He has not shown any resource guarding, but he will steal toys.

He has met and had extended positive interaction with a few other GSD, a Border Collie, and a large lab mix, our walking/hiking buddies. He has been friendly and approachable with everyone he has met while at his foster home. Mitch has enjoyed long walks and hiking and likes to play in water.

He has a good recall, has learned "sit", and is working on "down". He has a very high prey drive. He will try to chase lizards and squirrels and even birds in the trees or flying overhead while we are walking. He is doing pretty good about leaving these things alone when told "leave it". He is confident and curious when approaching new situations. He will alert bark, but will quiet when told.

He crates well, though he is only crated when no humans are home, and uses the dog door. He has not had an accident in his foster home. He will happily snuggle on the couch or bed with you, but watch out for those paws! If allowed, he will be gently mouthy in his play with people. He is always game to tug!

He would do best in an active home with a balanced to submissive dog who likes to play. He lived with children and did well, but would do best with children older than toddler. He has not lived with cats, but will ignore them on walks, so he would probably be OK with a dog savvy cat who wouldn't run from him.

For more information about Mitch, please contact: Cindy.
