A male Akita lab which was just placed in a new home by the SPCA of East Texas just two days ago has escaped.

The 7-year-old, neutered, blonde, short-haired dog's name is Sandy. He has a collar and tag on, and is "sweet but scared," according to Jodie Martin of the SPCA. She asks that if you see Sandy, "don't chase him. Rather, call 903-596-SPCA and ask for Lynn ASAP."

Martin said Sandy may be headed back to his previous home near Lake Jacksonville.
