The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver posted a photo of his dog, Blitz, on Instagram Monday, writing that Blitz was stolen from his home and is now being held for ransom. The Instagram account is called Blitz2fast, and it documents Whitehead's life so far with his beloved pup.

The rapper, who was asking for $20,000 in exchange for Blitz, claims he bought the dog from someone else and was just asking for his money back that he paid for the dog.

"While out of town, Blitz was being taken care of by a close friend at my house and someone broke in and took him", he posted. In the days since, he said, he's received calls on his cellphone from a blocked number demanding $10,000 for the dog's return. He also posted a message saying the dog was home safe with its owner, which Whitehead also says is now the case.

Then Tuesday morning Whitehead got his dog back.

Boogotti Kasino returned to Twitter around midnight last night following the backlash from his ransom video to say that not only did he not know the dog belonged to Whitehead, but that an ex-girlfriend of Whitehead's took the dog and sold him to the rapper.
