DALLAS (AP) — Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead says his beloved dog Blitz is back home after someone took the pitbull and demanded a $10,000 ransom.

Whitehead posted a video of Blitz on his Snapchat account early Tuesday with the note: “Look who made it home safely!!! THANKS EVERYONE.”

Whitehead told NBC 5 in Dallas he was in Florida last week when Blitz was taken from his Texas home, along with some shoes and bags. Whitehead says he got phone calls demanding he “cut a check” if he wanted to get Blitz back alive, but he refused to pay $10,000 without first getting proof that Blitz was OK.
