Our Girl JoyLee- a few questions

Hello!
I'm new to this forum. We adopted JoyLee when she was 6 weeks old, now she is 12 weeks old.
Me and my husband both working and JoyLee stays home alone 8 hours a day. We live in a apartment building and her "room" is the balcony. When we are out we use training pads which she uses as her toilet. When we are home we take her out every 2 hours and rest of the time she is locked in her crate.
The problem is that when she in not in her crate she pees every half hour on the training pad, If it is not there she pees in the place where it suppose to be. If she locked in her crate she can hold for 2.5-3 hours and then she pees.
How much time a 12 weeks old puppy suppose to hold?
How can I make her not to pee in the house?

I'm adding a few pics of our dog, does she looks like a pure breed golden retriever?

about 8 weeks old:







12 weeks old:

Joylee

Joylee is just adorable!!
Do you mean you are leaving her Outside, High Up on a Balcony?
That is so dangerous.
leaving a pup for 8 hours is a long time.
A crate would be a much safer place to leave her-it will also be a training tool for her to not potty in house. Make sure you remove her collars before leaving her in a crate so she doesn't choke.
Can you have someone come in and take her out to potty during the day?

The balcony is completely safe, it is closed and she cant fall out. Unfortunately I don't have anybody who can take her out during the 8 hours.

Puppies can't hold it for that long at all.

I know that. The problem is that she pees every 30 mins when she is not in her crate. I'm sure that she can hold at least for 2.5 hours. The question is how to make her not pee for the time that she can hold and in the same time not to lock her in the crate?

Crate

They say the crate is the best training tool.
I don't know any other way to train them then using the crate.

Joylee is so cute!! You can't train her to not pee so often. Think of her as a newborn baby. Puppies pee often and there's no getting around it. I don't have a solution for you but just wanted to welcome you to the forum.

She can't hold it for 2 and 1/2 hours when she isn't in the crate, or when she is. When Max was that age, I took him out every 20 minutes.

When puppies are awake and up running and playing it stimulates their bladder and they need to go potty much more often than when they are laying down. Every 20 to 30 minutes is about normal. Take her out to potty more often, try to time it so you take her out before she has an accident inside. As they get older and their bladder grows and they have more muscle control, they can hold it longer while they are awake.
