Montana Belgian Malinois & Dutch Shepherd Rescue 

The MBDR is no longer accepting surrendered dogs. Due to a variety of factors, we sadly and regretfully have to close the surrender and adoption portion of our rescue.  

If you have a dog you need to surrender please reach out to us for help or reach out to another of the many Malinois/Dutch Shepherd breed rescues in the country. 

If you have an issue with a dog of this breed please reach out!  These are amazing dogs but need a knowledgeable owner willing to put in the work. They are not for the faint of heart! 

We will still be available for questions, transport, networking, senior rescue and as a resource to our community.
