Cowboys WR says his dog was stolen for ransom money

Cowboys WR says his dog was stolen for ransom money

Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead wants his dog back.

In an Instagram post Sunday, Whitehead, 25, shared a photo of Blitz and the "heartbreaking" news that his dog was stolen a week previously. It's unclear if he has contacted police at this time.

"I strongly advise you stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse", Whitehead wrote.

Whitehead created an Instagram account for Blitz just days after adopting the dog in May.

Whitehead told Doney that he believes it was an "inside job".

Whitehead signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2015. After breaking into Whitehead's friend's home, where Blitz was staying while the receiver was away from his home, the person who took the dog has contacted Whitehead asking for money in return for the dog's return.

Whitehead said he refused to pay the $10,000, but told the thieves he would give them "some cash", which they indicated they would accept. Whitehead said a detective was unable to trace the phone from which the thieves called him. I wasn't here to protect him. With just 11 posts, the dog has almost 5,700 followers now.

But no matter what else, "I just want the dog back".
