Zabrina's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Zabrina's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $350.

We have special Requirements for Adopting a Puppy and a separate Puppy Questionnaire that must be completed on puppies. Please see our Requirements for Adopting a Puppy or EMAIL us at info@gcgsr.org for more information.

Zabrina is a petite female 6 month old Malinois. She was an owner surrender to rescue when the family quickly realized they were not ready to handle the energy of this breed.

Zabrina"s current foster home is a ranch setting where she is kept very active and busy most of the day. She loves running alongside the ATV, swimming in the pond, and playing chase with at least 6 other dogs. Her best buddy is her foster brother Nixon, a large 6 month old GSD, who she chases and wrestles with constantly.

Typical of a Malinois puppy, Zabrina is very mouthy and would not be appropriate for a family with small children. She has some ball drive, but not enough for a serious working dog. She does not appear to have high prey drive, so its possible she may be able to live with smaller animals, with proper training and supervision.

Zabrina is affectionate and tolerates being picked up and snuggled fairly well for a Malinois. She loves her crate, and when not active outside, prefers the safe confines of it. She is housebroken, and has descent manners, but occasionally tries to sneak her way up on the couch. She travels well in the car, and walks fairly well on a leash.

Zabrina is looking for a very active home with avid runners, hikers, or similar lifestyles. She would greatly benefit from a structured obedience training program to challenge her mind, and as an additional social outlet.


This dog is a Level 3. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zabrina, a Modesto Belgian Malinois puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Belgian Malinois for sale in Modesto, or seeking a Belgian Malinois puppy from a breeder in Modesto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Modesto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Modesto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Belgian Malinois breeders who help with Belgian Malinois rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Modesto paves the way for another one to be saved.
