NFL Player’s Dog Stolen, Held For Ransom After Appearing On Instagram


This is a situation where, if it were my dogs, I would go all Liam Neeson on someone. I don’t have a certain set of skills, but I would quickly acquire them to get my pups back.

Lucky Whitehead, a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, is warning people about the dangers of social media after his puppy was kidnapped while a friend was dog sitting.

(If you watch/listen to as many true crime series as I do, you might be thinking the friend was involved…no word on that.)

According to ABC News, while the friend was away from Lucky’s home, someone came in and took Blitz. Lucky then says he received calls from a blocked number asking how much the dog was worth to him and what he’d be willing to do to get him back.

He then took to social media to ask for help and was actually reunited with the dog, who was apparently sold to someone.

(…Again, seems suspect since they could have potentially gotten way more money from an NFL player. I KNOW, I can’t help it. Too much SVU and murder podcasts.)

All and all, this story ends with good news, as Blitz is now back home.

P.S. Don’t crop your dogs ears. It isn’t necessary and pibble ears are so cute and floppy. See:
