We have been blessed with old fashion business and personal practices, where a hand shake goes a long way and your word is your contract. We work hard and play hard too! Which is easy to do living in one of the top quail populations in the south-west. So good gun dogs are handy, but we expect and breed for more than that. We are a small breeder, trying to help improve the breed, by breeding quality Brittany’s, and placing them in good hunting and/or competition homes. Most of our females are daughters of The All Time Great ; Nolan’s Last Bullet, that has won more championships in National Shoot To Retrieve than any other bird dog, competing ALL Pointing Breeds!
I’d like to have an opportunity to tell you more and examine with you the key ingredients that make up Lone Star Brittany’s breeding program, to produce quality pups that will give you what you’ll need to bring up a great gun dog or companion.

Hunting Dogs - Brittany Puppies and Started Dogs
Please call or email us for more information on our upcoming litters. We look forward to hearing from you. We have some of the best quality Brittany pups in the country.
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.
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,
When we decided to get our first Brittany, we searched long to find the right breeder. James didn't disappoint us. He was friendly, patient, and helped us out with all our questions from start to finish, and even helped me pick out the right pup. Archer is just 3 months old now and so well behaved - and smart! - picks up commands like a charm. He even points and holds without any instruction, lol. The 2 day trip to bring him home was more than worth it. We couldn't be more pleased with our dog and know he is going to grow into a great family member. Thanks Lone Star Brittanys!!
After some searching for a pup I was advised that James had a male from a litter in the bloodline (Nolan's Last Bullet) I was seeking. The transaction was smooth and I ended-up with a gregarious 43 pound Britt that loves to hunt. Luke, A.K.A. Lilly's Frozen Bullet, is nearing 18 months and has the opportunity to hunt California Quail in Oregon and Idaho, as well as Sharp Tail and Ruffed Grouse and Ptarmigain here in Alaska. He has an amazing nose and a beautiful point. I could not be happier.
Mr. Morriss was extremely helpful when I came to him to breed my Bitty to his Ace. She produced a litter of 9 very healthy pups. The pups are now 9 months old and I'm receiving excellent reports on all of them. Each new owner loves their pup very much and have all reported that the pups are very "birdy" I can't thank Mr. Morriss enough for all the extra effort he went to, in order for this breeding to be successful. The hospitality he and his wife showed me while I was in Midland was outstanding. The Morriss' actually took me to watch the air show while I was there. If you are looking for a great hunting companion, look no further. Mr. Morriss breeds a quality Brittany. Thank you Mr. Morris for all your help, I hope to breed Bitty back to Ace soon. As I think we got a phenomenal litter.
From the very first moment that we started communicating with James regarding our male puppy I was impressed. His professionalism and willingness to help us was fantastic. When the day came for us to fly to Midland from Tulsa my wife Sara and I were very excited. We had recently lost one of our Goldens and were trying to replace her. We had the pick of the litter and chose a male we have named Hunter. He is a healthy, lively (understatement), and wonderful. We are glad that Hunter is in our lives now. I would definitely recommend James and Lone Star Brittanys to anyone looking for a new friend.
We drove from New Mexico to Midland to pick up our pup, Bella, from James back in January. He was outstanding! From the moment we put a deposit in for a pup, all the way through to picking her up and follow-up afterwards, James has been fantastic. Bella is showing all the signs of being both a great hunter and excellent family pet. At 5 months, she is already quartering naturally in the desert and her nose seems to be just as good. We may even try her at agility as she seems to love jumping, crawling and climbing in, over and on everything! Thanks again James for a fantastic Brittany!
Last June I drove from Fairfax , Va to Midland to pick up a puppy from James. I spent a long time looking at the breeding and decided that Ace / Paige puppy was what I was looking for. I had the last pick of the litter ( no pick )but no concerns because the pedigree is so strong. I had never run in field trials but wanted to try. The first trial at 6 months old, Cody won the open puppy and am puppy and got her first field trial points. She placed third in open derby the same weekend.We are still running derby and she has added a second place. I should have her derby points this fall. I am planning on entering her in shows as I feel she has great duel ch potential. I am so happy with Cody and can't thank James enough for breeding such great dogs. As we speak, Cody is warming my feet on the end of the bed. Rough Life !!!
James is truly a great breeder and the dogs he has to offer are excellent too! My brittany is a year and a half old and she does anything and everything to make me happy! She is constantly interested in birds and other critters and loves to play. She has a lot of energy and I'm extremely impressed at how friendly she is even with the little ones! You've got nothing to worry about with this breeder! A+
We are thrilled with our little Ronan! James went above and beyond and picked us up from the airport, took us to his home, and introduced us to our new baby. Our vet says he's in great health and there's no doubt that he's handsome and well behaved (for an 11 week old!). I highly recommend this breeder.
