"Somebody's broke into the house in L.A., took my dog from the house", Sturridge said in an appeal video sent exclusively to ESPN.

Sturridge, who played with Liverpool FC last season, had his small Pomeranian returned to him a day after he posted a video on Instagram showing his Los Angeles home burglarized.

However, Sturridge clearly was not concerned about either his home or the bags, taking to Instagram to offer up to $30,000 for the return of his dog, insisting that he would not ask any questions and would pay up instantly.

Los Angeles police confirmed they received a call at about 1:30 a.m and that other personal property was also taken from the residence.

"Walked into the house, didn't see the dog greeting us at the door", he told "GMA", "and everyone was like, 'Yo where's Lucci?'".

A video and pictures of the dog were tweeted on Wednesday, and Lucci has now been returned to Sturridge.

He offered "20 or 30" grand to anyone who could bring back his dog: "Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, straight up".

"I want my dog back, and I'll pay whatever".

The former Liverpool star came back home only to find out his dog was stolen and some items including bags were also stolen. "I want my dog back man".

Sturridge immediately took to social media and asked his 3.5 million followers to help him track down his beloved dog. "Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, 30 grand, whatever".

"You ain't going to get more than that anyway".
