Young Van Roekel Harker Heights Texas

Complaint: We purchased 2 puppies from Young on 9/30/2017. We thought we were buying full-bred 8-week-old Shih Tzu’s and was excited to get them home and start to care for them. Before arriving, I had asked Young if the parents of the puppies stayed with her and she said yes, so I was expecting to see both parents, but saw neither. We were so excited over the adorable puppies (which she capitalized on) that I did not push the issue. We drove 1-1/2 hours one way and were eager to get on the road with our new babies. We have owned 3 Shih Tzu’s in the past but it has been 8 years since our last one so we just remember they were little loving furbabies. After getting them home and comparing them to pictures of our past Shih Tzu’s, it was obvious that they were not full-bred. I wouldn’t doubt if the 2 we have are from 2 totally different litters, to be honest. I sent Young a text asking if we could return the puppies for a refund but of course she said she doesn’t do that (I thought every good breeder stands by there puppies). I asked her to be honest about the breed – the only Shih Tzu listed on her current website (apparently, she has alias websites) is a female. I did not see any male Shih Tzu’s and I asked her about that, which she ignored the question (I wouldn’t doubt if she has added one by now). I just don’t understand why she had to lie about the breed, other than thinking this would justify charging more. I have gone through different stages; angry at myself for not checking her out better, frustrated at the greed of some people in this world today and sad that there seems to be no integrity left in people. I am a woman of Faith that TRIES to mimic Jesus’s life so I am called to pray for Young and ask God to awaken her soul and draw her to Him. I have no one to blame but myself for this situation because I let my emotions get the best of me and was careless in my judgment. This was a very expensive and tough lesson to learn but God will use it for His good – this I know! He is control! I hope this helps someone not fall into this trap. Thanks for reading!
