Our family had a great experience with James and his dogs. We chose a male puppy that is now about 2 years old. He's a very healthy dog and his name is Deets after a character from the Lonesome Dove series. Deets took to training very well and out of 3 brittany's we've had in the family Deets has been at the top hands down. He's also a great addition to our family. I'd certainly purchase another pup from James and just may get on the list soon!!!

My Dixie is now 2 1/2 years old, a daughter of Ranger (son of Ace) and Emma (daughter of Nolan's Last Bullet). I contacted James after much searching because I wanted not just a dog that hunts but a companion as much more time is spent this way. James encouraged me by his comments on temperament and the bloodlines his dogs possessed. I was fortunate enough to get 1st pick female after waiting almost 2 years until the time was right for me to have a pup again. I spent an evening and the next morning observing the pups before deciding on my Dixie. James was communicative, responsive and patient throughout the entire process. This is without a doubt the best dog I have ever had. She has responded well to training, hunts strong and has a wonderful personality. I couldn't be happier and I hope to have her for a long life. She has become an integral part of our family and I thank James for the job he has done to be able to supply such wonderful Brittany's.

My 3 year old "Dash", son of Ace and Paige from Lone Star Brittany's has turned out to be amazing.
When I picked up this puppy from James, he was telling me about the sire, Ace. I'll never forget James said, "that dog would rather hunt than eat". Well, like father like son... Dash has tremendous bird hunting drive, the enthusiasm is unbelievable. Also, obedience is as good as I could ever ask. The dog simply does not disobey. This dog has excellent house manners and he is very gentle around my 11 year old son who has severe autism. I'll never regret using the best I can find (James Morriss and Anderson Gun Dogs for training)to develop this hunting companion.

We met James in the Austin area in early August three years ago to pick up Star our female prodigy. We have owned and bred Brittany's for 40+ years. Star is one of the best out of all of those years of hunting with and training bird dogs. In spite of being handicapped by living in Texas she has become a Prairie Chicken, Hungarian Partridge, and Sharptail Grouse specialist. Star travels well in the backseat with our 12 year old Minnesota Maverick/Rum River Brittany. Star lives in our home, camper, and trailer everyday with us. She is a perfect companion whether running 5 miles a day with me or sleeping on the bed at night. Star hunts in Montana and South Dakota with us every fall and is going to develop into one of the top three dogs we have seen in the last 40 years. Thanks James for all of the work you are putting in to breeding excellent Brittany's.

We adopted our Sofie from James 11 years ago and she is an amazing dog. Exceptionally smart, well behaved, easily trained and the perfect family member. We cannot wait for James to have a new litter to get a new pup from him.

Cassie will be four years old in Oct 2015. She is an amazing family dog and hunting dog. She is very sweet, loves people and is very smart and easy to train. I took her to Anderson Ranch Gun Dogs when she was about 10 months old. We've been quail hunting yearly after that and she does great for only getting out a few times a year and i'm always amazed at the birds she is able to find. I couldn't be more happy with James and his Brittany's and with Anderson Ranch.

I've waited about a year since picking up my pup from Mr. Morriss so I could have a little more time to see the dog develop. First, Jim was great to deal with. It was about a year wait for me to be able to get a puppy. I picked mine out of two that were available. The pup has been out of this world. She developed mentally very quickly and has a great temperament. At 5 months old I took her to the pheasant fields for some exposure and she flushed 2 pheasant and 3 quail on her first trip, and I knew we we're onto something special. Training has been easy with her and she has a great natural retrieve. Her skills have developed and improved over the last year at a rapid pace. I took her out to the same field yesterday and she found 12 pheasant in a matter of 10 min. She did amazing at the field trials as well. Everywhere I go I am constantly getting compliments about her. I am frequently being told she is the best looking brittany people have ever seen.
Bottom line is this, I can't recommend Lone Star Brittanys enough. The wait is more than worth it for the caliber of hunting partner and family companion you will get.

Last week I took Rennie back to the pro trainer, Paul Cacciatori, for some brushing up with his retrieving technique. (I'm a first-time dog owner, the problem was with me not the dog.)
After Rennie flawlessly retrieved to Paul's hand several times, the following exchange took place:
Me: "Rennie sure is a good dog."
Paul: "He's not a good dog, he's a GREAT dog. I have customers who've spent the last 20 years looking for a dog like that."

Rennie (age 15 months) is larger and more robust than the average Brittany. He is the perfect size for us. Rennie weighed 49 lbs. when we took him to hunting-dog school in June. On his return, he weighed 46. Where the 3 pounds came from I don't know, he never had any fat on him.
Whenever we take Rennie out with us, people say, "Wow, that is a handsome dog." It isn't just his markings or his coat, it's his dignified bearing and alert appearance. Whatever it is he's doing, he always looks great.
Most of the time Rennie is highly obedient, although he still backslides occasionally, as I would expect at 15 months.

Rennie is 15 months old now. He has completed three and a half months of his four-month training program with Mr. Paul Cacciatori of Starlight Kennels in Norco Calif. Rennie does everything he should be able to do at this level of advanced training. 100% effort every time. We love this dog! Can't wait to get him back.
