I think it's doable if you're willing to make sacrifices. I also work full-time, but I come home every day to let Murphy out and play with him. When I first got him, I took a week off to spend with him. Then for about the first month and a half, I went home to let him out and play every 2 to 3 hours. Now I come home once a day, for about an hour. In the morning, I spend lots of time playing with him. I also don't go out during the week, unless he's coming along. I come home and spend the evening playing and doing training. On the weekends, I take him wherever possible. If I wasn't able to get home to let him out, I would definitely hire a dog walker.
So as long as you can really look at your life and are completely willing and happy to make those sacrifices, it can be done. I thought long and hard before I got Murphy, and decided that I was willing to do whatever it takes to make our situation work. It has worked out very well for us, and I'm so happy that I've got the little furball in my life. Best of luck, whatever decision you make.
