What about farm dogs? They are almost always outdoors, and yet very happy, well-adjusted dogs
I didn't read all the other posts because this thread is a bit long.

I think that some breeds love it outside, and wouldn't trade it for anything. Sled dogs, for example. Outdoor dogs get lots of attention, too. There are huge, shaggy dogs who love to be outside and wouldn't trade it for anything. It really just depends on the dog and the owner. My dog is definitly a house dog. He follows us around and trips us if we step back quickly. Our other dog loved it outside, and never came in the house. He didn't want to.

So I think that when there is a difference in personality, size, and coat, you would notice it and decide for yourself whether your dog would be happier inside or out.
