Belgian Shepherd Dogs for adoption in Canada


In keeping with the club's objectives as stated in our constitution . . ." to support, promote, and protect the Belgian Shepherd Dog and to support responsible breeding . . ." The Belgian Shepherd Dog Club encourages its members to actively participate in breed rescue situations.

By maintaining lines of communication to ensure quick response and action whenever a Belgian Shepherd Dog is in need of assistance, our section members across Canada are vigilant, dedicated, and passionately involved in their canine communities,

The Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of Canada will financially assist any member with the cost of the adoption fee from a recognized shelter. We will also publish the availability of the dog on the National Website, Additional expenses incurred by any member in the rescue must be applied for and receive the approval of the National Executive.

Each rescue or re-home situation is unique. By having less rigidity in the policy, the Belgian Shepherd Dog Club can be flexible and adaptable in reviewing each incident.

When a situation arises in your section that requires the clubs involvement, contact the national secretary. Provide details of the Belgian in question and the type of help required including a dollar figure for reimbursement.

The National Secretary will notify the National Executive of the situation requesting a decision. If required, the secretary will gather any additional information.

The secretary will then notify the member and / or section of the decision.

It will be the responsibility of the member and / or section to provide follow up on all rescues and re-homes when financial support has been provided.

Available Rescue - Zena

Located on Vancouver Island, Zena is a 4-5 yr old spayed Belgium Malinois approx 55lbs. Crate trained and house trained. Loves to go for car rides. Enjoys running free in her fenced back yard. Loves to play chuck it, brings the ball back to your feet. Has high prey drive. Slow to trust people, prefers to get to know you on her terms. Takes time to trust. Loves morning belly rubs and snuggles. Very affectionate towards those she trusts. Takes treats from your hand oh so gently. Loves cheese. This girl is timid towards people but non aggressive. VERY selective towards dogs that she chooses as a friend. This loving girl has had a rough past, but so deserves a good new start on life. Zena is learning her basic commands and is catching on quickly. She is extremely smart and has a want to please. Zena would do best in a home with no small children (have not seen her around children), preferable a home with no other dogs, a fenced yard would be ideal so she can run. She loves nature hikes and going for runs. All on leash do to her past and lack of training. A handler who could help her get past her fears and help her live a happy full filled life would be amazing. Zena is safe in my hands but I am looking for a fur ever home for her. I received her over 3 weeks ago from a Rescue who did not have her best interests in mind. I am advocating on this poor girls behalf. In hopes to find someone with a good heart and with the training and patients that she needs. Please feel free to message me. I am willing to transport her in person to the right person.
