Whether you broke the contract or not revolves around the contract. Your leaving the puppy somewhere "for en extended period of time" and the way you vaguely chraracterize that - as opposed to "2 weeks" or whatever time frame, is a cuase for concern and will all have to be assessed. You will need to hire a lawyer but that will likely cost you equal to or more than the dog itslef.
