There was beer, food and fun at Saturday's Dogtoberfest, but the dogs - and plenty of them - were the main attraction at the SPCA of East Texas' daylong event. 

Dogtoberfest brought out hundreds dog lovers, many of whom arrived with their four-legged friends in tow, as well as those looking to find new member of the family.

The dogs up for adoption nuzzled into necks of prospective new owners or just barked a "hello" from inside the crates holding them.

Saturday's event at 151 Market Square Blvd., behind Gander Mountain, also included booths for food and drink vendors, as well as pet-related businesses.
