I don't think the temperatures would be conducive to their good health in a permanent outside living situation.

26-32 Celsius is a good target range for them, and I can't imagine your climate supports that....

I'd consider a breed that's tolerant of a broader range of conditions, like maybe a Russian Tortoise, but I'm sure others will chime in with suggestions.
