can you tell me how dangerous is a pulled or strained tendon in foot?

That would depend on: How bad the strain was. Usually, for the most part these are not dangerous injuries but more annoyances that you can't do what you want. Rest, ice, or heat after the first 48 hours are good. You can brace or wrap the injured region.
