Cowboys wide receiver claims his dog is being held for ransom

  • Cowboys' Lucky Whitehead says his puppy being held for ransom

Whitehead posted a picture of Blitz on Instagram on Sunday night, alleging that someone had abducted the poor pup.

'I strongly advise you to stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse!' Whitehead wrote in a post on Instagram. Making matters worse, Whitehead claims the thieves have contacted his phone and demanded ransom in return for Blitz. "We pretty much went everywhere together".

In his message, Whitehead pleads that his dog be returned safely and that anyone with any information contact him as soon as possible.

Lucky Whitehead really loves his dog, Blitz, which makes the situation he's going through significantly sadder. Signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2015, Whitehead was used primarily as a kick returner in his first two seasons. He said the caller said he would call back "but I haven't heard from him since".

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. 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.

"It's killing me", Whitehead told the station.
