80-year-old Eugene Bostick lives on a 3-acre piece of property in East Fort Worth, Texas, with his family. The home is located on a dead-end street and features a large horse barn on the property.  According to Bostick, ever he has lived there, people have dumped unwanted dogs and strays on their land, leaving them to fend for themselves.

Throughout the years, Bostick took care of the dogs that were left on his property. Once retired, Bostick was able to start investing a lot more time into saving all the dogs that made their way to his property. Feeding and housing them, as well as taking them to regular vet appointments. In addition to all of the ‘normal’ care he gives the dogs, he also built an awesome ‘dog train’ to have a little fun with the pups!

Being in his 80’s and having so many dogs, Bostick needed a way to move around while bringing his dogs with him. After seeing a man moving rocks with a similar train, he decided to build one that would transport all of his dogs!

All of the dogs hop on the train and go for rides almost daily, most rides last roughly an hour and half. They go along the Sycamore Golf Course, which is just at the back of the Bostick property and Bostick states that the golfers get a kick out of the train and the dogs!

80-year-old Eugene Bostick of Fort Worth, Texas, has the job all retirees would love to have: he is a dog train driver.

Bostick’s dog train has earned some attention, locally and on the internet.

Bostick is a skilled welder, and creating the dog train was something he could easily pull off.

Bostick claims that taking care of all his dogs and running the dog train keeps him going!!

How awesome is this! Seriously! What a guy!
