Dog train for abandoned dogs
A retired and skillful welder Eugene Bostick lives in East Forth Worth, Texas, and spends his golden years driving his very own dog train for every abandoned and stray canine he rescues.
Before Bostick became a proud dog train conductor, he didn’t have any pooches living with him. He lives with his brother, Corky, at a farm located near a dead-end street. One day some residents came by his place and dropped off their unloved pups outside to starve.
Rescuing the abandoned dogs
Seeing the poor animals alone and unwanted concerned him to do what was best for them. He decided to respond to the needs of the dogs and took them under his care. He and his family ensured their welfare by providing food, shelter and bringing them to vet clinics for sterilization.
Bostick wanted to take them all out on little adventures to make them even happier. He once saw a man driving a tractor with carts carrying stones attached to it. This gave him a brilliant idea to construct a special transport train made for them to ride around the neighborhood.
He started by connecting blue plastic barrels to his tractor as a resemblance of a train. He cut a big hole in the middle of the barrels and placed wheels underneath to make it look like a cart. Once it was ready, he put the dogs inside the carts and took them on an exciting ride.
Bostick takes them every other week around the neighborhood, and the ride lasts an hour and 30 minutes. All of his furry friends were so happy they kept barking along the trip, telling him they had fun.
At first, he didn’t plan to become a train conductor for dogs. But for him to see the dogs having a great time is what kept him going. And he too also enjoyed it.
