Whitehead posted a picture of Blitz on Instagram on Sunday night, alleging that someone had abducted the poor pup.
“I strongly advise you to stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse!” he said in the post, addressing the person who’s responsible. “If you know of any details regarding Blitz’s whereabouts or who may be involved in this, please contact me immediately”.
Whitehead is starting training camp soon for the Cowboys, and this is definitely the last thing a football player, or anyone wants to go through for that matter, wants to go through, especially before some of the most important weeks of your year. In 30 career games, he’s hauled in nine receptions for 64 yards and two first downs.
In an Instagram post, Whitehead explained that the dog was at a friends home while Whitehead was out of town. Whitehead said a detective was unable to trace the phone from which the thieves called him.
Whitehead said he refused to pay the $10,000, but told the thieves he would give them “some cash”, which they indicated they would accept.
“It’s killing me, because I wasn’t here to protect him”.
“It’s tough. I just got the dog (but he’s) close to me”, Whitehead told NBC 5.
