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 #7 - Tuesday, December 12
This is Cole. He is the sweetest, most affectionate and loving dog in the whole wide world. And he was beaten by his last owner.
You would never know the trauma Cole has lived through just by meeting him. He is quite literally the world’s sweetest dog. He immediately comes up for loves and attention. OK, he can be a little clingy, and yes, he definitely wants to jump up and be a lap dog — but it’s just because he wants nothing more than to be loved by his human. Cole’s personality and health are absolutely excellent, despite his past, so we’re anxious for this guy to get a fresh start in a loving home.
What we’ve seen is a 3 year old dog who’s still very much a puppy. What we’ve seen is a beautiful boy who just wants to be loved. And what we’ve seen is a dog who has made it through the worst time in his life and is ready for his happily ever after.
