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(s) #10 - Friday, December 15
Julius and Cleo
They are like so many fearful dogs, anxious for love and attention but too afraid to come close right away. So, we played the invisible dog game and waited them out. And sure enough, they trust us now. Julius is much faster to give loves and to accept touch; he’ll bark at you, run up and kiss you, back off, then wag his tail. Cleo will tuck herself in behind him, and when she’s ready, she’ll commando crawl toward you to meekly accept some pets. Kisses and wiggles come later for this girl, but when they do, they’re so rewarding.

Julius and Cleo are two years old and fully vetted. They walk well on a leash, but they do startle at sudden movements and noises. They are house- and crate-trained and very appreciative of predictable routines. We’re hoping a family has the time and patience to earn their trust and to see their darling personalities emerge. Because the twins are so much fun to be around. It’s time to upgrade their setting from onion field to foster home to forever home.
