A North Texas man will be featured on national television Thursday night for his efforts in rescuing dogs. J.D. Ryan is Around Town with a follow up on the Canine Conductor.

We first brought you the story of Eugene Bostick, his brother Corky and their dog train about a month ago. It all started when someone got video of Eugene and the train cars he built for the dogs that he rescues and takes care of on his property in Fort Worth.

“I had a little trailer, and it was full of dogs. I had five dogs in it, so I had to come up with something, so I came up with the dog train,” said Bostick, the Canine Conductor.

The video of Bostick and the dogs went viral and got the attention of television producers Michael Levitt and Academy Award winner Hilary Swank. They were producing a show called “The All-Star Dog Rescue” for FOX Television. In its second year, the show attempts to find homes for many dogs and features folks, like Bostick, that help rescue animals.

They flew Bostick and his wife, Pat, out to Hollywood to accept and award for his service in rescuing dogs. The award is for the The Citizens Rescue of the Year, Bostick added.

“The All-Star Dog Rescue”is on FOX on Thanksgiving night at 7:00 p.m. Last year, they generated over 4,500 adoption applications from the show.
