It's a Juniper bonsai. If it were left alone it would be a ground cover. It should be kept outside. They are not a good houseplant. They do not adapt well to growing indoors. There are many species of groundcover Junipers, so I can not tell you the exact species. Most are very winter hardy.

Maybe one of the low growing Juniperus, here are a few in our database for comparison:
Creeping Juniper (Juniperus horizontalis)
Japanese Garden Juniper (Juniperus procumbens 'Nana')
Creeping Juniper (Juniperus horizontalis 'Pancake')
Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper (Juniperus procumbens)

May be blue rug juniper. These types of junipers are easily made into bonsai style, I have done them myself. Yes, you can have them inside for short periods of time, but they do best outdoors. Because these often have had root pruning and are planted in shallow pots before being sold, they may need protection in very low wintertime temps if outdoors. I use to tuck a small fleece blanket around the base of my pot when the night time winter temps would go below 28 degrees so so.
