10 Dogs That Perfectly Personify Stereotypical Austinites

Here at Austin.com, we’re not really one for labels, but it’s true that many of can identify with and fit into loose categories made up of different types of locals. As stereotypical as these classifications may be, there’s no denying that they ring at least a little true, you hipster-foodie-natural swimming hole bum, you.

However, whatever social group or groups you belong to, we’re pretty sure that these Austin dogs are fitting in way better than all of us. Seriously, look at these pups being awesome:
