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 another video, the rapper claimed that he did not steal the dog, but that it was given to him by Whitehead's ex-girlfriend, and that he originally paid for the dog himself.

"Whomever stole Blitz has contacted my phone numerous times, demanding ransom money", he continued.

Whitehead posted a short Snapchat video early Tuesday morning that showed Blitz reunited with his owner unharmed. The person or people who are holding Whitehead's dog have contacted him several times by phone.

Kasino then tweeted a video of Blitz being returned to Whitehead just after 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Whitehead said he also had talked to the police.

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

Whitehead said he's had Blitz for nine weeks and got the dog shipped from San Diego. "It's killing me. It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated".

The third-year Cowboys receiver and kick returner asked for the public's help in getting Blitz returned.

Whitehead, whose real name is Rodney but has gone by the nickname "Lucky" since childhood, pleaded with the mysterious thieves to find it in their heart to return Blitz where he belongs. He said the caller said he would call back "but I haven't heard from him since". "I just want the dog back", Whitehead said.
