Joggers would usually see other people jogging with their dogs. One day a guy was going on his regular route when he heard barking in the deeper parts of the woods. He thought it was nothing until the next day when he heard it again in the same spot. The guy walked to where he heard the barking and saw Llana, the Pitbull, who was chained to the tree.
Lost in the woods
Craig Fields, the founder of New York City Bully Crew, received a message on their hotline about a dog that was tied up in the woods. Supposedly the dog had been tied up for more than a day.
Craig immediately drove the where the dog was with John, the trainer for New York City Bull Crew. They were careful when they approached Llana because she was frightened of someone getting in her little circumference.
Llana was on a little two-foot chain that restricted her movements. Craig was furious that someone would purposely tie their dog up to a tree and leave her behind.
The pair brought food and water to calm the dog that was barking at them and trying to break the chain. While Llana was eating, John slipped a leash around her neck.
They cut the chain, and the leash prevented the dog from running away. Craig and John wouldn’t have done a better job at trying to get Llana to trust them.
They walked the back to where their car was parked. It was easy for John and Craig to lure the dog into a cage with some food.
Craig brought Llana to the shelter to get her checked. The vet assured Craig that the dog was in good shape ad that she was only a little dehydrated.
Josh and Shannon Handler, a couple who wanted to adopt dogs, saw a photo of Llana on Instagram. They found out about how the dog was rescued, and that made them want to take Llana home.
The couple would go to the shelter two hours a day every day for two weeks straight to walk Llana and just get to know her. They loved the dog ever since they met her.
After two weeks, the couple decided to adopt Llana officially. They formed a bond quickly, and it was evident by the way the dog was running around and playing that she was happy in her new home.
