Puppy + 12 hour night shifts

Hi.
I have a 7 week old tri pitbull. I work 12 hour nights in a hospital 3 days a week. I want my pup to be crate trained and house trained. Ive had him since Christmas and he was doing ok when I was gone 5-6 hours but last night was his first 12 hours alone and it's been a rough day. He pooped on his puppy pads, but it looks like he was walking back and forth through it getting himself and the crate dirty.
Please give me advice?!

This what marienze said, or maybe you can rent someone to take him to walk and work a little bit with him.
