Lucky Whitehead posts stolen dog Blitz is 'home safely'

Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead house broken into dog held for ransom

Dallas Cowboy player Lucky Whitehead was out of town when his house was broken into and his beloved puppy, Blitz, was stolen. So it's not hard to imagine how upset the Cowboys wide receiver is that his pooch, Blitz, was recently stolen from his home. Moreover, who steals a dog and then demands a ransom?

'I strongly advise you to stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse!' Whitehead wrote in a post on Instagram. Told he would receive another call, Whitehead says he has not heard back from the malicious dognapper.

The receiver said a man asked: "How much does the dog mean to you?" and said that if Whitehead wanted his dog returned, "You got to cut a check".

The Cowboywire stated that this is no laughing matter, apparently after some people have made jokes online about Whitehead's dog being held for ransom.

According to an Instagram post by Whitehead, the dognappers struck while his close friend was watching the dog.

The beloved pup of Cowboys wide receiver and return specialist Lucky Whitehead was returned to his rightful owner last night, after a freakish series of events that played out on social media over the past 36 hours. "It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated".

Whitehead said a detective told him that a "burner" phone couldn't be traced. The station has also reached out to the Cowboys for comment and has not yet received a response.

This is obviously a pretty wild story (and one that could develop further if Whitehead decides to press charges), but the good news is that Blitz is safe and has been returned.
