Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead's dog has been returned safely after being stolen and held for ransom, he said.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Whitehead said that someone had broken into his house and stolen his dog Blitz.

Whitehead told FOX 4 Dallas he was convinced this happened to him because he plays for the Dallas Cowboys and whoever stole the dog was trying to mess with his head.

"Look who made it home safely!"

While Whitehead didn't report anything else missing besides his dog, in an online post, the National Football League player soon learned what the break-in was all about once he was contacted by the person who took his XL Bully puppy.

Whitehead, who was in Florida when the dog was stolen along with a couple of pairs of shoes and some bags, said initially that the unknown robbers demanded $10,000 for the return of his dog.

It has not been reported how the dog came to return home or if money changed hands.

The Cowboys receiver adopted the pit bull puppy earlier this summer and has been documenting Blitz's life on an Instagram account created for the puppy. Whitehead said he has not heard back.

The 25-year-old Whitehead tried to get detectives on the case, but they were unable to trace the dognappers' phones.

Whitehead said he's had Blitz for nine weeks and got the dog shipped from San Diego. "I wasn't here to protect him", Whitehead said of Blitz. Whitehead refused to pay that much, but did offer to pay "some cash" to ensure Blitz's safe return. "It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated".
