Is your yard fenced?
Would you fence all or part of your yard as a condition of adoption?

Are you willing and able to modify your daily schedule to accommodate a Malinois' needs, such as going outdoors into a fenced area or walking on a leash to perform bodily functions at least four times daily?

Are you aware of the importance of keeping a Malinois on leash or in a fenced area?

Malinois are social, pack animals that need to live in close companionship with their family and pack. While moderate time may be spent in an adequate outdoor kennel and dog house they cannot be kept outside exclusively and never chained. Do you agree to these conditions?

Is there a local ordinance in your area pertaining to owning/housing an animal (i.e. leash laws, required vaccinations, dog licenses, etc.)

Are you willing to keep a collar with a tag bearing your name, address, phone number, etc. on your Malinois at all times?

If for any reason, you are unable to keep your Malinois, will you agree to return it to the person from whom you adopted?

Are you willing and able to accept full care, costs, and necessary burdens and responsibility of owning a pet?
