When this 86-year-old retiree relocated to the outskirts of Fort Worth, Texas, he started noticing numerous suspicious owners coming to his new 13-acre home with their unwanted dogs, seeking to abandon them in a discreet fashion. In response to this heartbreaking situation, he turned his property into a refuge for these frightened and neglected animals – providing them with the shelter and care they so desperately need.

Over the course of time, these animals evolved from being mere acquaintances to integral parts of his family. His fondness for them was so great that it eventually played a major role in his decision to retire – a choice he made with joy and satisfaction.

Eugene watched his beloved Dogs with delight as they happily played together, and it was this that sparked an unusual but ingenious notion in his mind – the concept of a ‘doggie train.’ Taking inspiration from what he had seen, Eugene embarked on a mission to bring his idea to life, working tirelessly until every detail was perfected.

He was an expert welder, and he used his skill to create an amazing experience for his dogs. He punched holes in plastic barrels and affixed wheels to them before attaching them to a mini tractor – giving his beloved canines the ride of their lives! The sheer joy on their faces made all the hard work worthwhile.

Eugene and his train have become a source of great enjoyment to the local dogs, who eagerly anticipate their twice-weekly outings with their “fatherly figure.” Each time they set off on these lengthy trips, the canines show their enthusiasm by leaping around with uncontainable joy.

Every time they step aboard the train, Eugene brings them to life and they become two enthusiastic, tail-wagging puppies with glistening eyes. His journey takes them through lush forests and forgotten corners of town, allowing them to explore new places beyond their wildest dreams.

The most blissful sounds and sights to them are when they inhale the fragrant air and bask in the warm sunshine! They beam with the widest grins as they watch life meander around them, taking in all its beauty!

Eugene derives true bliss and purpose from rescuing abandoned dogs, who keep appearing in the desolate area intermittently. He finds immense contentment in providing these animals with a safe haven and ensuring they have a place to call home.

Not only does Eugene generously take the abandoned boys into his home, but he also demonstrates an incredible level of thoughtfulness by making sure that there is enough space for everyone on the train. To accomplish this, he ingeniously adds another barrel car so that all the boys can comfortably fit!
