@ The OP.
This is a hard situation to take a "side" on......
IMO...If your agreement with the breeder is for a replacement puppy....then you should be given a replacement puppy...period.
IF your breeder "chose" your original puppy (because of their breeding practises)...then your breeder has the right to "choose"" your replacement puppy also.
IF your breeder (honestly) believed, that the litter that was available, birthed "no suitable" puppy.....then you would be best to rely on his/her judgement.
IF your breeder made a decision to "halt" a specific breeding....*as bad, as it may seem or sound*...that is their prerogative.
Having a litter is a HUGE decision & commitment to make (at least it should be)...your breeder may not feel that the timing would benefit the litter being born. *Respect that*.
Please...speak to your breeder. Explain your thoughts......let her/him explain their reasoning.
I have a *very special person* at this moment, waiting for a replacement puppy.
I know what she wants, and she knows what she wants.....as soon as *that* litter/puppy is born...it is hers, and YES...there is a waiting period right now.
BUT...she also knows..every litter that I am planning...I would never not give her an option.
