First let me say that you have to do what you feel is best for your situation. If it means returning the puppy, then it has to be done. I know how you feel. Sometimes it just gets overwhelming. When my son (now 36) was 2-1/2, and I was 7mos pregnant, my husband brought home the most beautiful German Shep pup. After 2 weeks of craziness, the pup went back.
Now, I'll tell you my experience with Kodi and Shelby.
KODI is a very sweet, calm boy, except for playtime. Then he plays just as hard as any dog. He will sit and let me brush him for hours. So when we got SHELBY we were surprised that she is so "feisty". I have not been able to brush her for more than 5 mins unless she has something to distract her. like another brush. Also, she is a biter. Part of the problem is teething, but she likes to bite. I just have to let her know that I am the boss. When they play together, she is much more aggressive and louder than Kodi, so I have to watch them. If I think it is getting out of hand, I give them both a nudge to stop them. Now that she is getting a little older (going on 5 mos), she seems to be calming down a little. Also, her personality is starting to emerge.
Maybe this helps, maybe not. But I know you will make the right decision for you and Cash.
