TYLER, Texas — For today's edition of Tuesday Tails, meet Atticus — from the SPCA of East Texas.

Atticus is a young hound-mix who was born Dec. 26, 2021. He was picked up by a Good Samaritan and had to have one of his back legs amputated due to an accident. He popped back up after surgery and carried on with life! Despite having only three legs, he has no limitations and can run very well. Atticus is very playful and needs someone who can give him lots of love and attention. He has such a happy-go-lucky look on life and loves everyone. Atticus is the perfect example of how resilient dogs are. 

The SPCA of East Texas' temporary adoption office is located at the Snippet Clinic, at 3405 ENE Loop 323 in Tyler.

Adoption office hours are Tuesday - Saturday, by appointment only.
