Question Thinking about getting a dog

hi, i'm thinking about getting a dog, it be on its own for 8am-4.30pm , i've narrowed it down to 4 breeds - golden retreiver, japanese spitz,border terrier & Estrela mountain dog- which of these would be most suitable- it could be taken out for walks in the morning and would get plenty of attention when i came home (i also have a 12 year old son).

any of those breeds would be ok with that time frame as an adult. As a puppy, there is no breed that could hold it that long. They need frequent outings.
