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 #2 - Tuesday, December 5
This is Buddy. He’s 4 years old, and his whole world just changed.
After Buddy’s primary guardian passed away, his family was in a tough position. There wasn’t anyone around who could really care for him, though the neighbor kids did come to take him for walks regularly, and his behaviors began to change as he became more and more protective of his home and his other guardian. Buddy was raised by a lovely couple who cared for him very well ever since he was a puppy. He had a routine and certain habits, including favorite toy balls that were different depending on whether he was playing indoors or outdoors. He was loved. He was a member of his family.
