Is it appropriate to leave a puppy alone on weekdays?

Hello! I’m looking at adopting a Kelpie x Maremma puppy. However i go to work/university all day five days a week. As holidays are currently underway, she wouldn’t be left alone until about seven months of age. I’m still not sure if i am morally comfortable with leaving a dog only all day, particularly this breed. I cant find much information online, what are your opinions?

Even at 7 months old your pup will need a potty break during the day as their bladder cannot hold it for 8+ hours. I would find a local walker who can stop in for the potty break, give the pup some exercise and socialization. Best of luck with your new pup.
