Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is still without a team for the upcoming season, and now he’s also without his dog, Lucci. Sturridge, who has been linked with a move to Aston Villa, has confirmed that his adorable pet Pomeranian puppy was stolen after his West Hollywood home was burglarized late last night.

Sturridge said his dog, as well as a number of bags, were taken from his home while he was out for a couple hours just before midnight. The former England international posted photos of Lucci on his social media, where he made an urgent, emotional plea for help in his quest to get his best friend back.

There will be a sizable reward for anyone who helps reunite Lucci and Daniel.

“We will pay anything for the dog,” the 29-year-old Sturridge said to his followers. “Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, 30 grand, whatever.”

“Whoever knows who broke into my crib, I’ll pay you anything. I’m dead serious. I’ll pay whatever – it doesn’t matter the cost.”

The best way to contact Sturridge, if you have information related to Lucci, is at his Instagram page, which is linked here. Lucci has a page as well, with over 10,000 followers, and it can be found here.
