See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the Southwest 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.

Jett is a frisky, frolicsome, lovable girl. She is 8 years young, which is perfect.

Remember when you were 8 years old? How you used to giggle and just wanted a best friend to play with? That's Jett.

Jett is a little bit of a pocket Malinois. She's 40-45 pounds of love, packed into a bundle of cute. She was one of 22 dogs seized all at once, and it seems like she had very little exposure to the outside world before she came to ABMR. She is learning fast, and is very affectionate with familiar people. It seems like she may have been a house dog at some point, because she knows about furniture and respects your things.

Jett is heartworm negative and seems healthy after a few months in foster care. She was very skinny and had dental issues when she came to rescue. She had to have 16 teeth removed, and she is doing great now. She can eat dry dogfood, but prefers soft treats. She also loves soft toys to toss, mouth, and carry around the yard when she gets the zoomies. Her touch is gentle when she accepts treats, even when she was hungry.

In the foster home, Jett has made best friends with one of the Staffordshire Terriers. They will roll and wrestle and play very nicely together. There's a poodle there that doesn't care for Jett, so she is polite and gives him space. Jett has not shown any dog reactivity and seems to have good dog-manners. She was even allowed to play in the communal yard when she went to daycare. She can "get small" to encourage other dogs to accept her invitation to play.

She's very smart, and a tiny bit mischievous. Her foster says that when Jett was caught counter surfing, Jett was only taking the things that she knew were for dogs. She actually took the dogfood and left the pizza alone! And she's practicing to be a magician. Jett managed to hide one of her favorite toys in a crack behind a pile of bricks— she confounded her host by burying it without leaving a trace.

Jett learns new commands quickly. It only took ten bites of hot dog before she understood that she has a designated spot to wait during dinner prep. She knows sit, down, crate, and is learning Jett (come), off, stay, go around a barrel, through hoop, load in the car, and to walk on a loose leash. She gets a little carsick so she doesn't enjoy the car, but she has learned to jump up if you ask her to. "She tries so hard to be brave and good," says her foster.

This pup is a homebody. Because she wasn't socialized, she is timid out in public. Jett really prefers to hang out at home, or nearby. She might even be okay in an apartment, if she got regular walks and lots of mental stimulation. She doesn't bark much. She loves puzzle games like her Buster cube, and wants to work to please you. "She's a lovely dog, the easiest Malinois I've lived with." Jett will "get silly" by grinning, rolling over, and juggling her toys with her feet.

A quiet home without a lot of visitors would be best for Jett. Strangers make her nervous. It's like she doesn't know how to get away, and being petted or cuddled by a stranger can make her feel trapped. When she is wearing a gentle leader and leash, she knows you are in charge, which helps. But if you plan to entertain or have visitors, she would feel safest in her crate in a different room.

Out in public, Jett walks nicely on a gentle leader, but "pulls like a fish on a line" on a plain leash. She ignores other dogs on walks. Squirrels and cats can bring out that Malinois prey drive. Jett isn't a candidate for dog sports, but she would be delighted to have a human to work with her on life skills. She might really like nosework, and it would be a big confidence builder. She's already an expert at kisses and affection, so you're in luck if you are looking for a professional snuggler!

Jett's foster just gushes when she talks about how sweet and silly this dog is. Jett needs an adult or two to love on her, be patient with her as she learns about life in the big wide world, and appreciate her loving and playful nature. She'd probably be okay with a first time malinois home, if they were dog savvy and could help her build confidence slowly. Day by day, Jett is learning to make better choices and let her goofy good-humor shine.

If you're curious about Jett, please take a look at the photos and videos. You will laugh when you see how happy she is with her foster brother and her toys. And I think you'll agree that this beautiful girl would look right at home nestled up next to you.
