I don't think it's black and white. It is of course not ideal for a dog. but as white shepherd mentioned...what is going on the other 8 hours? If MOST of the other 8 hours are spent with the dog, then it may be ok...why?...cause dogs sleep about 12 hours a day anyway.
in terms of a super young puppy...no way. but an older "puppy" or an adult dog, especially with daycare and dogwalks, it could work.
my 10 month old is essential "alone" 16 hours a day. I work 8 and sleep for maybe 7. when i am home he gets walks, fetch, flirt pole, training, cuddles etc. but the reality of life is we all have to go to work and sleep. he is not crated at night, but is during the day...
A tired puppy is a good puppy
