Austin may not be the smartest pup around, but he sure knows how to get things done. Sometimes he can be really goofy and funny, and other times he can be very serious about what's going on around him. He tends to overreact to some things and does things he doesn't mean to do, but he ends up making up for it in the end. Austin is very good at fixing things, at home he fixed his own 4 wheeler in under 10 minutes. He is also very good at hockey and loves to play it all day long, and once scored 10 goals in a game by himself with no assists.
Austin stated that he used to play hockey for his local town.
