How is it ventilated? Any windows? How tall is it? What is the floor like? Can you post a link? I would think that aluminum would get hotter than 88 degrees F inside on a warm summer day---but that depends on how warm it gets where you live. Is the shed aluminum or is it wood with aluminum siding?
If the space is enclosed I would think it could get much warmer than the outside air temp...If the dog is only going in when he wants to and it is only when it is raining out, then there shouldn't be too much of a problem because he'll be wet and the rain will cool things off...
But if he's also using it during the summer on sunny, hot days, then please share some more info. about the shed and the climate.
PS If the shed is placed on something raised a bit off the ground (rather than sitting right on top of the ground) you may find your dog digging a hole and hanging out in the cool dirt UNDER the shed on a really hot day[
