A dog belonging to Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead was returned home safely Tuesday after allegedly being stolen and held for ransom.
ESPN reports that someone broke into Whitehead's home and stole his 16-week-old pit bull puppy Blitz and some shoes while he was in Florida, and then called him from a burner phone asking him to "cut a check" for $10,000. “They said, ‘How much does the dog mean to you?’”
Whitehead said the dog’s captors told him. Whitehead refused to pony up, but later got the dog back, as evidenced by a video exchanged posted by the Dallas rapper Boogotti Kasino, who wrote, "Dog home safe to his owner @ninjafast22 we got everythang understood I didn't steal nobody dog facts I took a lost n still gave him his dog."
Either way, Whitehead was ecstatic, and posted a video of Blitz to Snapchat, saying, "Look who made it home safely!!! THANKS EVERYONE."
I personally wanna say THANK YOU! The kindness and compassion I felt from everyone of you, speaks volumes to the Dallas cowboys family ❤️🐶 pic.twitter.com/RE7Cdken7k— Lucky Whitehead (@ninjafast22) July 18, 2017
