It's the time of year where many people open their hearts and homes. Here is a great chance to welcome a new friend into your family. The Meridian Canine Rescue and Mix 106 are back with the 12 Strays of Christmas.

For the next 12 days we will be featuring different dogs from the Meridian Canine Rescue. These animals need their FUR-ever home. You will see a different dog featured each day. You can always check the MIX 106 YOUTUBE channel, Facebook or mix106radio.com for each days special dog.

Thanks to Camp Bow Wow and Shadows Paw Wash for setting each adopted dog up with some goodies. Follow the 12 Strays if Christmas and share with friends you think may be looking at a new dog.
