Eugene Bostick is used to seeing stray dogs on his three-acre piece of land in East Fort Worth, Texas. The 80-year-old’s property sits at the end of a dead-end street, so uncaring people dump their stray dogs there with no regard for their lives.
Instead of ignoring the animals, Bostick and his family opened their hearts and homes to many strays over the years. In addition to caring for them, getting them veterinary care, and feeding them, Bostick decided to build them a mode of transportation.
One day, the sweet man saw someone hauling carts of rocks attached to a tractor. Bostick was inspired to build a dog train using his welding skills. He hooked up his tractor to makeshift train cars for the dogs.
He took plastic barrels that had holes cut out of them and put wheels underneath each one. Though he started with four or five dogs in the train cars, more and more dogs showed up on his property.
Bostick takes the dogs out for a train ride twice weekly and the animals love it. What a beautiful gesture from a good Samaritan with a kind heart!
Amidst all the doom and gloom – especially with the coronavirus pandemic – it’s nice to read some good news for a change.
