First You do not have to take a puppy that you do not want, this doesn't mean that you will get the exact puppy that is your first or second choice but the puppy should meet your criteria. If you wanted a brown, medium, female you shouldn't be given a creme, male; the breeder may tell you that a male is better and why but you are the buyer and can't be forced to buy something that is not what you want. Hopefully the breeder did discuss with your their selection policy and you were clear on this prior to your deposit.

I would go back to the breeder with requests based on their written contract. If they are unable to comply with their own contract I would wonder if they would comply with their warranty!?

Your other options are to also report them to the associations that they belong to.

Your options really depend on what you want? Do you want a puppy from THAT breeder, do you want your money back?
