Nashville, aka Nash, is a 3-1/2 month Lab/Heeler mix boy. The only reason we know he is a Heeler mix is because he was born here at the rescue by his Heeler mom, Savannah. Otherwise he looks completely like the Lab that his dad must have been. Nash is very outgoing, friendly, and loveable, and just a little bit spunky. He’s probably going to be smaller in size than your average Lab, but only in size and not in personality. Nash was the first puppy born from his litter an d he struggled to survive for the first few minutes, but he was a fighter and bounced back, and he shows that strong spirit today. He responds well to training and a regular routine, and would be best in a home with an older dog. Nash is doing fantastic on his housetraining and socialization as well as his obedience training. He has received all 4 of his parvo/distemper vaccinations, bordetella vaccination, he is microchipped, and has been started on heartworm and flea preventative. He is available for a $250 adoption donation on a Neuter Contract that requires his adopter has him neutered by 7 months of age. If interested in Nash, please download an adoption application from our website,, and submit it to the email address on the form.

About Twisted Branch Aussie Ranch

About Our Rescue Group...

With few exceptions, we do not use foster homes. Most of the dogs in our rescue live here in the home with us as members of our family, and they sleep and eat indoors and have free run of the yard during the day. We feel that this is the best way for us to prepare these dogs for adoption and life with their new families, to teach them house manners and basic obedience training, and to get to fully know them so that we can make a proper placement.

Our Adoption Process...

Please keep in mind that we are not a shelter where you can visit dogs and go home with one that day. We are a home and family first, and a rescue secondly, and in order to maintain a family environment for the dogs, we are only able to offer visits after we have an approved adoption application from you. We put a great deal of effort into every dog that we rescue, sometimes driving several hours to rescue them and then spending a huge amount of time caring for them physically, training them, socializing them with other dogs, and teaching them house manners. We bring these dogs into our home, into our family, and in some cases, into our bed to sleep with us. They are our family, and we care deeply about every dog that comes into our rescue. For this reason, we are very particular about where our dogs go. We do not adopt on a first-come, first-serve basis, but instead adopt to the family who is the best match for that particular dog.

Adoption Requirements and Procedure:

*We must have a reviewed, approved Adoption Application from you before scheduling a visit with the dogs.
*You must have a securely fenced yard for your adopted dog. We do not adopt dogs to homes where they would be allowed to roam free on acreage. This is for the safety of the dog.
*Due to health concerns for young puppies, puppies under the age of 4 months can’t be adopted to apartment homes where they would be exposed to other dogs. Puppies underage for spay/neuter are only available for local adoption.
*You must be able to travel here to meet and adopt your new dog. We do not ship dogs, and we want the opportunity to meet you in person before trusting you with one of our babies.
*You must be patient with us! Once we receive your application, we will need time to review it, check references, and conduct a home visit to ensure that you can provide a safe environment for your new dog. The whole process could take as much as two weeks. Please keep this in mind when you apply, as you will not be able to apply and adopt the same day.
