The 12 Strays of Christmas continues tomorrow on The New Mix Morning Show with Mike and Nicole just after 8am.

Each weekday until December 19, we will feature a dog waiting to be adopted from the Meridian Canine Rescue. The goal is to empty out the shelter before the holidays to give each precious pup a warm and loving forever home!

Is your family looking for a new family member this Christmas?

Our friends at Camp Bow Wow are providing all dogs adopted during Mike and Nicole's 12 Strays of Christmas a generous gift as well! FIVE days of doggy daycare at either one of their two Treasure Valley locations. (3430 S Tk Ave, Boise or 2134 E Franklin Rd, Meridian) How awesome is that?!

Once the pups leave the Mix 106 studio each day, they will visit The PULSE Running & Fitness Shop in Meridian from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. So, anyone interested in meeting and playing with dog, can do so!

Also, a huge thank you to Dawn Burkhart of Boise Pet Photography for taking such beautiful photos of these dogs before they find their forever families!

Follow along on and our Facebook page each day to see the dogs featured! Please share their photos and bios with your friends and family who may be looking to add a furry friend to their family!

Stray #4 - Thursday, December 7
Meet Sassy! This little pup definitely lives up to her name — she’s got such a personality!
At just about a year old, Sassy is puppy through and through. She was surrendered to a rural shelter in Idaho before being transferred to us. When she arrived at that shelter, she was understandably scared and overwhelmed, and it took a few days for her to warm up to people. We saw a similar transformation here — scared and nervous, then totally up for cuddles and kisses. Sassy lets her guard down once she trusts you, and she becomes a bouncy, happy, semi-crazy puppy.
