Daniel Sturridge reunited with stolen dog after offering £30,000 reward


Lucci, arguably the world's most famous Pomeranian, has been returned to ex-Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge after he was stolen in a robbery at the England football international's Los Angeles home this week.

The 29-year-old was not home when his house in L.A. was burgled, and said that his dog, as well as a number of bags, were stolen.

It now appears the dog was found somewhere in the city on Wednesday morning and, according to LA police, has been returned to the former Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool star.

You'd have to say the dog in the video looks an very bad lot like Lucci.

"Somebody has broken into the house in LA and took my dog from the house", he told his 3.4million followers when he found out his dog was missing.

"Listen, whoever knows who broke into my crib, I'll pay you anything".

Sturridge's house in Los Angeles was broken into earlier this week and several items had been taken.

Somebody please find my dog, I'll pay anything.

He also offered a £30,000 reward for its safe return.

Sturridge recorded a video in which he said he'd "pay anything" for information regarding the incident. I wanna know why they took my dog.

He then posted a video showing Lucci back where he belongs: at his home. 30 Gs, whatever. Bring my dog back.

"Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, straight up". I'm dead serious. I wanna know who took my s***.

Sturridge also posted four images of the dog - who has his own Instagram account - and uploaded CCTV footage of three hooded men.
