Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead said his beloved dog Blitz is back home after someone took the pitbull and demanded a $10,000 ransom.
Whitehead posted a video of Blitz on his Snapchat account early Tuesday with the note: “Look who made it home safely!!! THANKS EVERYONE.”
There was no word on the events that led to the return of Blitz.
Whitehead told NBC 5 in Dallas he was in Florida last week when Blitz was taken from his Texas home, along with some shoes and bags. Whitehead said he got phone calls demanding he “cut a check” if he wanted to get Blitz back alive, but he refused to pay $10,000 without first getting proof that Blitz was OK.
Whitehead brought Blitz home nine weeks ago and has created an Instagram account for the pup, including photos of him in superhero costumes and a Cowboys shirt.
