Meet The Malinois (approx. 6)

With a recent increase in the number of homeless Belgian Malinois dogs, the German Shepherd Rescue of OC has welcomed several Mals into our life raft. Belgian Malinois are not the same breed as German Shepherds, and while they share some similar traits, adopters should become acutely familiar with the breed before choosing to adopt one. Belgian Malinois are very high-driven, very energetic, and very intelligent dogs and as such, they do not do well waiting at home all day for an owner to return from work. If you are not extremely athletic with a good exercise routine, this is probably not the right breed for you. They require twice as much exercise as the average large dog.

If you believe you can offer a Belgian Malinois a home with exercise, leadership, patience, and a very stable routine, these dogs are available for adoption.

Application, home visit, and donation are required prior to placement.
