Cowboys Players' Dog Returned After Brief 'Kidnapping'

Lucky Whitehead of the Dallas Cowboys runs during a NFL game in Arlington Texas in 2016

Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead posted on Instagram Sunday that his pitbull puppy, Blitz, was stolen for ransom money while Whitehead was out of town.

Football has taken a backseat to Lucky Whitehead's dog dilemma. Moreover, who steals a dog and then demands a ransom?

When 105.3 the Fan's Mike Fisher caught wind of the video, he immediately shared it with Whitehead to confirm that the dog in the video was in fact Blitz.

The 25-year-old Whitehead told Dallas-area reporter Mike Fisher that he had never seen or heard of the rapper.

To add to Whitehead's anguish, he says that Blitz is being held for ransom and that the thieves have gone silent.

Whitehead claims that Blitz was taken from his house July 9 while he was out of town.

A Dallas Cowboys player's Blitz is missing - and, unfortunately, this time it's not an indictment on the team's defensive line. The WR then made an Instagram account in Blitz's name, and there are now more than 5,000 followers.

According to the report, Whitehead refused to cut a a check for $10,000 but agreed to pay cash after making sure the dog was OK.

Whitehead said a detective told him that a "burner" phone couldn't be traced. "It's killing me just because I wasn't there to protect him".

Whitehead doesn't seem to care about anything else having to do with the break-in, but his dog's safe return, as the New York Daily News suggests. I was willing to do what I had to do [to] get him back. It is not known if, or how much, Whitehead paid to get the dog back.
