DOG BRANCH. Dog Branch rises five miles northeast of Mason in central Mason County (at 30°49' N, 99°11' W) and runs southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on East Willow Creek, 2½ miles northwest of Art (at 30°47' N, 99°08' W). The creek rises in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau and crosses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams that support scrub brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak and mesquite.
