Savannah is a 3 year old Australian Cattle Dog with an adorable bobbed tail. She weighs 42 pounds but you would never guess her to be that heavy because she has a small frame, but she’s all muscle. This girl is some kind of athletic! Savannah can run like the wind, and she can easily scale a chain link fence without even touching it. We see a lot of working instinct in her, as she will often herd the other dogs when they are in the yard playing or walking outside off-leash with us. She is great with every dog she has met, and she’s nice to the cat when they meet face to face but otherwise wants to chase the cat when she sees him. She’s a gentle dog so I don’t think she would hurt a cat, but would probably annoy them. Savannah came to us VERY pregnant, when a friend found her wandering stray, took her in and then found rescue for her. She blessed us with nine beautiful puppies a week later and was an exceptional mother, but now it’s her turn to be someone’s baby. She has a very sweet, demure personality other than when she’s being frisky and playing with other dogs and then she gets a little rambunctious, but never plays too rough. She is very obedient and can be trusted off-leash with you after a period of time. She sleeps in a crate at night and will go into it when asked, and does not have accidents in her crate at night but needs continued reinforcement on her potty training during the day. Savannah has now been spayed, is fully vaccinated, tested negative for heartworms, is microchipped, and is current on heartworm and flea preventatives. She is available for a $300 adoption donation and a 6’ or taller fence is a requirement of her adoption. If interested in this gorgeous, sweet girl, please download an adoption application from our website,, and submit it to the email address at the top of 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.
