We consider the Ising spin-glass on a special lattice containing small loops with finite coordination number c. We derive the equation for the effective field distribution. With zero external field, we calculate the spin-glass transition temperature and obtain the lower critical dimension of the system. We investigate the system near and below the spin-glass transition and find that the replica symmetric solution is unstable in the low-temperature phase. Our results indicate that the replica symmetry breaking (RSB) effects are stronger than that of the Bethe lattice and furthermore, RSB is enhanced as the dimension (c/2) is decreased. Comparison with recent results of the 1 Id expansion is also discussed.
