Cowboys receiver Lucky Whitehead went public Monday with the news that his beloved pit bull "Blitz" had been kidnapped from his Dallas home on Sunday, and moreover that the kidnappers had contacted him demanding a $20,000 ransom.

In hopes of helping Whitehead find his dog, here are a bunch of cute pictures from Blitz's Instagram. While he was away, a close friend was watching his house and his XL Bully puppy, Blitz. "It's sickening", Whitehead said of Blitz, who has been in the National Football League player's possession for nine weeks.

Whitehead asked his followers to contact him if they had any details about Blitz's location or anything relating to the incident, and broke all of our hearts in the process.

Whitehead's friend was caring for the dog at Whitehead's house when the dog was taken, Whitehead said.

After discovering the dog was missing, Whitehead says he received phone calls from someone demanding that he pay $10,000 for the safe return of the dog.

According to, Whitehead posted a video of himself and Blitz on Snapchat Tuesday, saying: "Look who made it home safely!" Blitz was safely returned last night, but not before falling into the hands of a local rapper named Boogotti Kasino, who vehemently denies having stolen Blitz.

Early Tuesday morning, Whitehead apparently got his dog back.

To make matters even worse, the dog thieves aren't done there. 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. It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated".

The Dallas Cowboys' offseason took a odd turn Sunday afternoon. I wasn't here to protect him.
