Eugene Bostick and his brother, Corky are taking in stray dogs in Fort Worth and giving them a second chance at a sweet life.
80-year-old Bostick and his brother live on a culdesac and own a barn. Eugene told The Dodo, people abandon their dogs there and leave them to starve.
“We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn. People sometimes come by and dump dogs out here, leaving 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.”
The Bosticks have been helping animals for 30 years, but now Eugene has taken it a step further. He found the sweetest way to entertain his animals and that is with a doggy train.
“One day I was out and I seen this guy with a tractor who attached these carts to pull rocks. I thought, ‘Dang, that would do for a dog train,’” Eugene told The Dodo. “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.”
This is the sweetest thing I’ve heard in a long time. If there is anything that really bothers me, it’s people harming poor innocent animals and a story like this means a lot to me. Eugene and Corky are truly inspiring and it’s motivating to know there are people out there that are this selfless and caring.
