Jogger Comes Across Barking Dog Tied To Tree and Decided To Do Something

Abandoned deep in the woods, Llana, a loving pit bull, faced a bleak and uncertain future. Tethered to a tree with a short chain, her cries of distress echoed through the desolate forest, filling the air with a sense of despair and urgency. She was alone, terrified, and without hope, waiting desperately for someone, anyone, to come to her rescue. One night, while on his usual evening run, a compassionate jogger heard her desperate barking and was moved to take action, sparking a series of events that would transform Llana’s life forever.


The jogger was taking his usual evening run when he was startled by the sound of frantic barking echoing through the darkness. Initially, he dismissed it, thinking it might be an echo or perhaps an animal startled by his presence. However, the persistent barking gnawed at him, and he felt an overwhelming urge to investigate further. He returned the next morning, determined to find the source of the distressing cries.

As he ventured deeper into the forest, he found Llana, scared, malnourished, and chained to a tree. The sight broke his heart, and he knew he had to help her. The jogger quickly contacted Craig Fields of the New York Bully Crew (NYBC), a well-known rescue organization dedicated to helping needy animals.

When Craig arrived, he approached Llana with caution and empathy. Initially, she responded with fear and defensiveness, her trust in humans shattered by her abandonment. However, Craig, with his calm demeanor and kindness, knew how to soothe her fears. He offered her food, speaking to her softly, and waited patiently for her trust. Using a belt as a makeshift leash, Llana took her first tentative steps toward a new and brighter future.


Over the next several weeks, Llana underwent a remarkable transformation. From a frightened and defensive dog, she blossomed into a loving, cuddly companion. With the unwavering support of Craig and the dedicated NYBC team, she gradually learned to trust people again. Her initial fear gave way to a renewed sense of joy, her playful personality starting to emerge as she realized she was finally safe. It was as if she had become a completely new dog, her spirit lifted by the love and care she received.

As she grew more comfortable in her new surroundings, her true personality began to shine. She quickly adapted to living with people, enjoying the affection and companionship she had been deprived of for so long. The turning point in her journey came when a loving family decided to adopt her, offering her a chance at a fresh start. The family spent weeks getting to know Llana, ensuring a smooth transition to her new home.

Llana’s new family was just as excited to welcome her into their lives. They included a little brother, Ruckus, and a beautiful sister, Tea. She  immediately bonded with her new siblings, as if she had always been a part of the family. The bond she developed with her new family members was immediate and strong, a testament to the resilience and capacity for love that animals like Llana possess.


In her new home, she discovered a loving and warm environment. She now spends her days playing, eating, and taking wonderful naps with her new family. Her loving adoptive family, overjoyed to have her, shares their home and hearts with Llana, giving her new adventures and filling her days with happiness and security.

Llana’s journey from abandonment to adoption is a testament to the power of compassion, resilience, and the unbreakable bond between humans and their beloved pets. Her story serves as a reminder of the importance of kindness and the incredible impact it can have on the lives of animals in need. With her forever family, Llana has truly found her happily ever after.
