Morgan the Mal Is a Playful, Sweet Girl Looking for Some Fun!
1 ½-year-old, female, medium, Belgian Malinois
Good with other dogs: Selective
Good with children: Older children
Good with cats: Unknown
Morgan is a beautiful, high-energy Mal who would love to find her forever home with an active
person or family with older children. If you’re familiar with the Belgian Malinois, you know they
have a high level of energy and are very intelligent, which Morgan definitely is.
Morgan has been going through training with Ryan at The Barking Dog in Scottsdale and now
walks beautifully on a leash and knows several commands. She has made lots of progress with
her training and is a very well-behaved girl now.
This young girl is wary of strangers, but once she gets to know you, she develops a real
attachment and is very sweet and cuddly. But most of all, her favorite activity is to play tug,
which is a great outlet for her typical Mal energy. She also enjoys playing ball and has a high ball
drive, which likely means she wouldn’t be good with cats or small dogs.
This gorgeous girl would be ideal for a family with previous Malinois experience. She’ll need lots
of physical and mental exercise to keep her happy, and she would really enjoy a daily run or
hike. She will also need to continue her training, since she’s still a very young girl that will easily
learn how to channel her energy with continued, positive obedience training.

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.
"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.
"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.
Shelter Driving Directions
Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.
"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.

"Saving Paws" serves Phoenix Arizona and the surrounding communities. Adoptions nationwide are offered through partner rescues and by special arrangement.
"Saving Paws" works individually with each potential adopter to assure a good match and successful placement. The specific adoption process can vary and includes:
* Telephone and or email consultation.
* "Meet & Greet" with selected animals. We request that all family members and pets be present.
* Adoption application and reference check.
* Home visit
* Completion of the adoption process.
* Any additional follow up or assistance required.
Adoption fees and donations offset the extremely high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses.
