Daniel Sturridge’s pet dog Lucci has been found, 24 hours after thieves broke into his Los Angeles apartment.
Good Morning America confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the former Liverpool striker has been reunited with his pup.
They also claim police do not believe the people who returned the dog are involved with the theft.
Sturridge, who offered a £30,000 reward to anyone who can bring back the Pomeranian, posted several appeals to his social media platforms on Tuesday.
And on Wednesday morning, Twitter user ‘Killa Fame’ responded with several pictures and a video claiming to have located Lucci.
He then responded to Sturridge’s appeal, saying: “Man i got him.”
In his appeal to find his pooch, the former Liverpool striker said the following on his story:
“Listen, someone has broken into the house in LA, took my dog from the house. Listen, whoever knows who broke into my crib, I’ll pay you anything, I’m dead serious.” he said.
“I want to know who took my s***. I wanna know what’s went on. I wanna know why they took my dog. I wanna know why they took bags from upstairs.
“I want to know what the f**** going on. How can you break into someone’s house in LA and take a dog? Are you crazy? You break into a house and take a dog?”

He posted a number of clips, and in one he offered ’20 or 30′ grand to anyone who could bring back his dog:
“Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, straight up. Straight up. 20 Gs. 30 Gs, whatever. Bring my dog back. Bring my dog back to this house, I am moving out of this b**** anyway.
“Bring the dog back to this address. I’ll be moving out tomorrow or the next day.
“I want my dog back and I’ll pay whatever, it don’t matter, it don’t matter the cost. 20 or 30 grand, bring my dog back.
“You aren’t going to get more than that anyway, and if you are, let me know and I’ll pay more than them. I want my dog back.”
