About Texas Gun Dog Ranch-Champion Pups AKC
Champion Pups with AKC Champion Lines. Two Ranch Locations in Texas. We deliver Pups to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio areas quite often during our travels. We have Real References with Phones #s and Many Client Testimonials to share. We only have SELECTIVE breedings on a very rare basis. Most breedings are for our own personal use, however we do not need an entire litter so we make these available.


  1. Most of our dogs are pointing backing and retrieving by 4 months of age!!! If you have a good blood line it makes it easy!
  2. Our Pups are priced from $696 and the value is there.
  3. Occasionally we have a breeding that ends up in the middle of our summer vacation or Christmas Vacation and we will sell puppies at a reduced rate to maximize our family time.
  4. When we do sell pups at a reduced rate we are NOT going to sell to ANYONE, we want our dogs to be raised to their maximum potential. 
  5. Our Puppies are raised in a CLIMATE CONTROLLED kennel facility that ensures your dogs helath. The central AC and Heating system in our facility also captures dust etc. further protecting your puppy.
  6. Our Puppies are raised in a whelping pen with SURGICAL BLANKETS as used in hospitals to ensure your puppies are in a clean and sterile environment, others may use shredded newspaper, shavings etc. that can cause digestive tract problems later in life as your puppy becomes an adult and the damage from digesting these becomes apparent.
  7. We have REFERENCES with phone numbers, real people you can call and talk to about our facility, and quality of our puppies.
  8. We SHIP TO ALL US STATES. We know how and WHEN to ship your puppy and understand the best flights to use and not to use. Shipping a puppy can be very easy if done properly, most of our dogs make the trip in 6 hours. If you do not know how to schedule a puppies flight then a puppy can end up travelling for 12 hours or more, which increases the stress on the puppy. Our puppies take a nap and wake up in their new owners arms.

I recently purchased a male GSP from Texas Gun Dog Ranch, and I highly recommend this breeder to someone who is looking for an incredibly smart dog! Also, I purchased our pup out of state and was not sure what to think about the idea of getting a dog I have never been around. Now after having the pup for almost three weeks, I can testify that you are in good hands with James Sprouse. At 10 weeks my dog is responding consistently to the sit, stay, and here commands along with pointing to a wing on a stick and retrieving. I don't think it can get much better than that. Thanks again James!

The dogs that come from Mr. Sprouse's ranch are definitely top notch! They are healthy, good looking dogs that perform like no other. I was shocked at how well they did during a recent pheasant hunt that I took with Mr. Sprouse.

I had the pleasure of picking up my Springer Spaniel last March 2011 from Gun Dog Breeders, and i must say, since day one "Pakula" was a true hunter. I have taken her on several dove hunt in the past 6 month and she has done great on retrieving. I have hunted her several time on blue quail and she has do a great job finding them and pointing. I have been extremely pleased with my first dog ever to buy, James made the process as easy as possibly and I continue to stay in touch with him about Pakula's and my hunting experiences. Pakula just turned 1 on January 31st 2011, I can imagine how much better of a retriever and pointer she will become!

I bought my female ESS on Tuesday. I was hesitant to trust any breeder on that I found on the internet, but I was delighted to find that James and his Springer Spaniel Ranch blew my expectations away. When I first contacted the breeder he was very responsive and conveyed that he cared for all his animals (they have llamas, goats, ducks, and more). I am a first time dog owner and I found that no matter how much research is done before hand, there is still a learning curve. James and his family helped me through the first days of the puppy being home and I am happy to say that the pup is happy, healthy, and a very fast learner. Springer Spaniel Ranch is a top notch breeder.

I have looked at a ton of dogs and i can honestly say that Mr. Sprouse has some of the best mannered and working dogs that i have seen. When you pull up to their ranch to look at a puppy you think your at their house but you are actually at their dog kennels. The Sprouse family is a very nice and loving family they have many animals and their is not one poor or sick looking animal on the farm everything from the 20 year old horse to the 3 day old puppy is in top health. I have had the pleasure to hunt with Mr. Sprouse and his dogs and i must say i was shocked. These dogs are top notch and one of a kind their puppies are beautiful and very smart. So to sum it all up when it comes time for me to purchase my german shorthair IT WILL BE through Mr. Sprouse and no one else.

My husband and I recently purchased a female English Springer Spaniel puppy from James Sprouse at Texas Gun Dog Ranch in Normangee, Texas. I found James to be very friendly, responsive, and accessible throughout the process. His facility is top-notch, very clean, spacious, and professional. The dogs were all well-cared-for, and very well-socialized, with the help of his many children who give the puppies a lot of attention. We were able to meet both parents on site, which was really nice. I would recommend James and the Texas Gun Dog Ranch to anyone looking for a quality breeder.

If you do not do anything else you MUST visit the ranch and see the kennels. I have seen some nice houses in my days, however to arrive at what I thought was their house only to discover it was the doghouse just blew me away. Who builds a 6 figure house for dogs? Someone who cares for their animals obviously The kennel house is climate controlled, has pella double pane windows and is made of custom stone and hardi plank with spray in insulation. The interior of the 5 dog runs is covered in the white wall coverings like a commercial kitchen for easy cleaning and control of bacteria and contains a walk in shower for the dogs. The kennels were spotless due to the fact that they have a full time person caring for their animals which were all family pets and breeding is a special occasion for them. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this kennel for a puppy.
