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.

I have been around Brittanies my whole life. For many years my family raised them. After loosing my last one it was really hard. It was even harder to find a breeder that I felt comfortable getting a dog from. After three years of looking and some convincing of my Husband we got on Mr. Morriss' list for a female. Belle, is now a little over a year old has is the birdiest Britt I have been around and a natural at hunting. I feel bad sometimes there are dove that torture her by sitting on the power line in the backyard, she will hold a point for the longest time, many times after a while we have to try to get her distracted by something else. We could have driven less or spent less but we would NOT have gotten the quality dog we did. I would recommend to anyone to get their Brittany from Mr. Morriss.
Thank you Again,

Rennie just turned one year old two weeks ago. He's rugged, handsome, athletic, and healthy in every respect. Everything we wanted, and a great family dog.
Rennie is currently training with Paul Cacciatori of Starlight Kennels in Norco Calif. Paul says one of the best Brittanys he has ever trained, if not the best. Paul's nickname for Rennie is "Handsome."
We are so fortunate to have this wonderful dog!

Our girl Josey is about to have her first birthday at the end of the month. My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our dog and the experience of working with James. I'm biased, but I couldn't imagine a better looking brittany than our Josey. She's a natural hunter with my very limited experience trying to train her. She basically trained herself with me just trying to help her out as much as I can despite my ignorance and time limitations. Josey is mainly a family pet though, and this is why my wife has fallen in love with her. My wife has had several great dogs in her life, but she has never been so crazy about a dog as she is with this one. She had questioned whether we should get a brittany because she wanted a smaller, calmer, indoor dog. Josey quickly won her over. She is convinced Josey will be the best dog we could possibly ever have. Josey being a big cuddler has helped with that. She thinks we spoiled ourselves with Josey and that our expectations will be too high in the future. She may be right. Josey is fearless. She loves playing with dogs that are bigger than her and enjoys her her time jumping in dirty creeks or lakes. Her temperament has been surprisingly calm as she spends most of her day as an indoor dog. This is our first brittany, but we had heard a fair share of stories and warnings from friends who have owned this breed in the past, so we were expecting to have a somewhat crazy dog on our hands. This is where I think James has done a great job. He has somehow mastered breeding a blend of a great, loving, well behaved family dog, while maintaining fantastic natural hunting instincts. I think other prestigious brittany breeders focus on the one dimension of having a great hunting dog and you end up with a spaz of a dog when they aren't on birds. If you read the reviews below you see the common trend of great family dogs and fantastic hunting dogs. It still amazes me how she can make the switch from family dog to bird dog. She will be pretty calm, but when she knows its time to be outside with the birds or hunting, her eyes get dilated and its like a drug for her. It's clear she was made to be a great hunting dog. I wouldn't be surprised if she had the natural ability to do very well in the competitions, but we didn't think we needed to go the professional training route because she will mainly just be a dove dog and family dog for us. Overall, we couldn't be more impressed. James is a great breeder, a great communicator when you have questions, and a great man in general. We fully recommend Lone Star Brittanys

“Dash” was born to Paige and Ace. At 10 months old, I took him to Christine Anderson of Anderson’s Gun Dogs. After completion of 3 months of training at Anderson’s, I took Dash out for a hunt and he did an amazing job. He is a very passionate hunter, he worked the field very nicely and he held steady on points perfectly. I was also pleased to see him fetching to my hand.

It was Dash's first hunt and his performance was right on the heels of my guide's four year old English Setter who hunts about 15-20 days out of each month. I will go as far as to say his obedience was even better. He heeded every command with great enthusiasm. Also, Christine Anderson trained him to cast directions with the tone button on the collar (two beeps). He turned perfectly every time I hit the tone. Using the tone for that purpose was very handy.
Dash is always eager to please and continues to be a great family dog. He is wonderful with my 10 year old twins and particularly with my 10 year old son who has moderate-severe autism.

I just wanted to send my gratitude for the great genetics of James Morris's Brittany(s) and Christine Anderson's excellent training work.

I have to say that I could not be more pleased with our dog Scout that we got from James. Her disposition is the best of all the Brittany's I've owned (5). I had her trained by Stacy Anderson this summer and when we went to the field this fall and winter she has performed very well. Her first hunt, I put her in the field with three experienced dogs and after about 30 minutes she held her own and had numerous single points and retrieves. Scout is only 19 months old but is already hunting beyond her years. James really knows what he is doing with his dogs. I couldn't be more pleased.

When you first talk to James on the phone, you will recognize his intent and his heart are in the right place. He wants to furher improve the breed and he wants to find good homes for his pups. James has been very successful. Our "Dash" has amazing natural hunting instict and he has excellent disposition as a family dog. James has done a great job of selecting dogs that produce pups with a very good balance of both attributes. "Dash" was born to Paige and Ace. Dash turned out to be a very good looking dog. He has Ace's beautifl head. Dash is a great listner and very mindful of me. He is great with my 9 year old twins. Dash picked up on the commands I taught him (Here, Whoa, Kennel, etc.) extremely quickly. I just sent him off to Anderson Gun Dogs in Decatur and they are equally as impressed. I'll send an update once I get him back and get some hunts under his belt.

I had searched for several years to find the right Brittany. James took the time to not only talk with me on the phone, but to meet with me at his home prior to purchase and answer all of my questions. If you are looking for an incredible gun dog, with outstanding skills, James is who you need to talk to. Clara, who is now 4 months old, is not only an amazing bird dog, she's the most well tempered and intelligent Britt (or any other breed)I have ever owned. She's great to work with in the field, has TONS of style on point, and a work ethic that won't quit. James was a pleasure to work with, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
