Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead is back with Blitz after saying Monday that his XL Bully puppy had been stolen and held for ransom.

Whitehead told the news station he refused to give them $10,000, but agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of money for Blitz after first making sure he was OK.

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.

Whitehead said a friend was taking care of Blitz last Sunday while Whitehead was out of town, when someone broke into his house to steal the pitbull.

According to Whitehead's post on Instagram, the captors are demanding money for the safe return of his dog, but he never divulged just how much money they are demanding.

The reunion comes one day after Whitehead announced over Instagram that his dog was stolen and then added further detail in an interview with KXAS-TV in Dallas. He also contacted the police following the calls, but detectives said they couldn't be traced because they came from a "burner phone".

It's obviously not everyday that a dog gets taken for ransom, especially from a house not even belonging to the person who owns the dog, which makes this story even more depressing. "It's killing me. It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated".

"It's tough. I just got the dog (but he's) close to me", Whitehead told NBC 5. He said the caller said he would call back "but I haven't heard from him since".
