what do you think about Walker Hound X Australian Shepherd puppies. I tend to work about 10 hrs a day m-f, is this too long to keep this kind of dog alone? I read about both breeds, but not sure how they mix

That is going to be too long for any puppy. Puppies need frequent potty breaks, but also need ongoing training and socializing, exercise and company if they are going to develop into sound, stable dogs with good temperaments. Unless you have a way to make sure a puppy will have those needs met, it would be good to wait to get a puppy until you are home more. An 8 week old puppy may need a potty breaks every couple hours.

This may not work to have a puppy being away 10 hours because they need to have a potty break every 30 minutes. Although you can take your puppy to a doggie day care. The puppy should get lots of potty breaks, get to play with other dogs, and socialize with humans. Besure not to get confused with doggie day care and bording kennels. Bording kennels will take your dog on potty breaks but still the dog would be in a kennels a lot. Which I don't beleive dogs should spend all day, every day in a kennel. (Not that bording kennels are bad, but not the best for a regular basis.) Hope this helps!
