The minimum age of placement is 8 weeks of age, many of the smaller breeds are recommended for minimum placement age of 10 to 12 weeks. They are usually weaned by then but isn't the only thing they are dependant upon the family unit for. They need to be with them to learn what they need to become good pets and good dogs later.
Critical life lessons are begun between 6 and 8 weeks of age and are learned thorugh interacting with their Dam and any litter mates. As the lessons are beginning around that time, there are many breeders who keep their pups longer for a better foundation though breed factors. They are learning how to be dogs in general and helps make them good companions in particular.
A puppy who leaves the Dam and/or any litter mates to early can have behavioral and socialization issues that are difficult or even impossible to correct. They lack the needed foundation and life lessons that are learned in early puppyhood through interacting with their family unit. The first link is the US breed parent club for more breed specific information.
