Cowboys' Lucky Whitehead says someone is demanding ransom after taking his dog

Wednesday, 19 Jul, 2017

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead said early Tuesday morning that his dog was returned to him after being stolen and held for ransom.

When informed that Blitz was missing, Whitehead got on the next available flight to Dallas, where he was told that along with his dog, the thieves had taken two pairs of shoes "and some bags".

In an interview with KXAS-TV in Dallas (h/t ESPN.com), Whitehead said he received a call from an unknown number demanding $10,000 for the return of Blitz. Let's hope that Whitehead gets Blitz back and fast.

He said he agreed to pay an undisclosed sum but wanted to make sure the dog was OK.

After February 7, 2017, she has scored 7 consecutive fifties in one-day internationals which are greatest ever in women cricket. She has already hit three half centuries and a 46 not out, besides today's ton, from the seven matches she has played so far.

It has not been reported how the dog came to return home or if money changed hands.

Whitehead reportedly contacted police but learned that the dognappers' use of a "burner phone" made their calls and texts untraceable.

Whitehead's friend was caring for the dog at Whitehead's house when the dog was taken, Whitehead said. "Whomever stole Blitz has contacted my phone numerous times demanding ransom money". "It's killing me. It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated". They also took Blitz. While the Cowboys receiver took to Snapchat to share the news, Boogotti shared the video on Instagram with a caption that was half-apologetic half-plugging his new mixtape (WARNING: Caption contains NSFW language). All oddities aside, the guy just wants his dog Blitz back and for any dog owners out there, you know the feeling of being without your best canine companion. I wasn't here to protect him.
