You mention several contractual issues that are not being met. Those you can seek legal counsel on and remediation. You can also file complaints with the associations though personally I think you have a better chance at some kind of resoulution through courts or arbitration. As far as the pup not meeting "your request" thats vague. As breeders we have more experience at placing dogs properly, though not always perfectly. There are techniques and observations that good breeders use and then some just shut their eyes and point. You would need to prove your breeder is not equiped to choose and your breeder will make the argument that it appears like you have buyers remorse. As breeders we dont "deesign" to your blueprint of the perfect dog we do the best we can.

In spite of what you may hear, pups can, and some do, leave at 8 weeks. I have seen no difference between leaving at 8 or 12 and i have done both for almost 40 years. Microchipping ( or tatooing which I find useless) and neutering are real issues that can be remedied by both the courts and the associations.
