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

Kayce is a 5-month-old Rhodesian Ridgeback-terrier mix who was rescued with over 90 other animals from a cruelty seizure in Smith County.

The SPCA of East Texas will continue to work on basic house manners while he is in their care awaiting his forever home. Kayce does well around other dogs, but he has not been introduced to cats. 

"We are sure with the proper guidance he will do great," the SPCA of East Texas said. "Kayce is very playful and is also very active. With a dedicated owner, he will be a great addition to anyone's home! Kayce is going to be a big boy and will need a home to accommodate his size."

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