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 #8 - Wednesday, December 13
You can’t help but smile at Sven, love him, and shake your head all at the same time. He’s just a big goofus. And you need someone like him in your life. He’ll make you smile when you’re down. He’ll force you to play and exercise even when you want to sit on your bum. He’ll keep you on your toes — and then he’ll probably lick your toes. And maybe nibble on them for good measure.
Sven is good with kids and other dogs. He’s house-trained, kennel-trained, and fully vetted. He’s also very, very, very smart. And very, very, very food-motivated. Which will make that whole training thing so much easier.
