Eugene Bostick had been retired for over 20 years when a dog caught his eye and tugged at his emotions. Then there was another and another till Eugene could no longer tolerate it. The man from Fort Worth, Texas, lives in a rural area where unwanted dogs are routinely dumped. It hurt him to see these animals wandering aimlessly, unsure of where their loved ones had vanished. They didn’t have fresh water or food.
Their hearts had been broken, and they had become lost. Eugene lavishes the puppies with the love they crave. When he greets them, he renames them and gives them a friendly pat on the head.
Eugene’s 12-acre farm, which is home to ducks, geese, tortoises, bunnies, goats, and birds, is a favourite hangout spot for the pups. Eugene, on the other hand, didn’t think that looking after them and supplying the necessities was enough. He had to go above and beyond. Eugene kept saving puppies in need while also adding a new title to his resume: train conductor.
Eugene places the dogs in his care into their own tiny barrel, complete with a safety harness, and takes them for a ride around the neighbourhood or the woodland area near their home a couple of times a week. This is such an uplifting story!
