Dogs enjoy a spot of heaven on their own personal train
A man goes beyond rescuing the abandoned dogs and comes up with a unique innovation to keep them happy.
80-year-old Eugene Bostick of Fort Worth, Texas, has taken to rescuing and taking care of abandoned dogs following his retirement.
In an interview with The Dodo, Bostick revealed how he was forced to take up the responsibility of the pets because of the cruelty of the owners.
Bostick explained that he and his brother live down a dead-end street, where they own a horse barn. The street often becomes a place for people to dump their dogs and leave them to starve.
"So, we started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered. We made a place for them to live," Bostick told The Dodo, opening up about how he was compelled to embark on a new career path.
But the kind-hearted retiree does not just look after the safety of the abandoned pets, he also makes sure that the dogs under his care are having a great time.
He takes the dogs on a trip from time to time and, for this very purpose, he designed his own custom dog transportation in the form of a "dog train," Bostick said.
He explained how he got the idea of his dog train while seeing a guy driving a tractor that had several carts attached to pull the rocks. He wanted to do something similar for his dogs.
"I'm a pretty good welder, so I took these plastic barrels with holes cut in them, and put wheels under them and tied them together," he further explained how he built the unique dog transportation.
Bostick loves taking his dogs out for a ride on the special train. He revealed that his dogs as well very much look forward to this experience. They come running and jump into the cart on their own whenever they see Bostick fixing it into the tractor.
