Dogs are genuinely valued companions, famed for their loyalty, and for putting a smile on their owners’ faces. But despite that, there are still humans who abandon their dogs heartlessly.
Just like this story of a dog who was abandoned by the human he fully trusted in. Way up in the observation tower, deep into the rain forest, was a pitbull left on the Bosque Toro Negro tower in Puerto Rico. If not for a Facebook video, the poor pitbull may still be waiting for his owner.
Rescuers were acting on a video on Facebook about a dog who is way up an observation tower. They went on a 30-minute hike in the jungle before they finally reached their destination, the abandoned tower on the island, which is said to house a pitbull.
The rescuers started climbing the tower in search of the unfortunate dog. When they finally saw him, they couldn’t believe their eyes.
They have never seen a dog look as mistreated, depressed, scared, and sad as Ragnar. The poor dog must have been abandoned for around a month already with how debilitated his body looks. They might have come a moment too late.
One of the rescuers carried the poor dog down the tower and back to the clinic for evaluation. They decided to name him after a famous Viking, Ragnar, for the courage and strength he has for surviving alone in the observation tower in the forest. A survivor of being castaway.
Ragnar turned out to be a sweet pitbull. It makes one wonder why he was left in the tower by his owner. The good thing is, Ragnar is recovering with a bright future ahead, and a family ready to love him. Despite what he went through, he is ready to love and play with his future family.
