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.

Sturridge, 29, offered a £30,000 reward for the return of the Pomeranian, which he said was stolen during a break-in at his house in Los Angeles.

The ex-Manchester City and Chelsea man, who is linked with a move to newly promoted Premier League side Aston Villa, left Liverpool when his contract expired at the end of June.

"I want my dog back and I'll pay whatever, it don't matter, it don't matter the cost".

"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.

The soccer star also claims the burglars took other personal items from the house. I'll pay anything, I'm dead serious.

But a second episode struck a week later at the end of June, just hours before she was due to board a plane for a G20 summit in Japan.

The dog was apparently discovered by two KTLA viewers, who called into the newsroom to say they had found the dog running in a street.

It wasn't clear who returned his dog, but police said the animal was found early Wednesday.

Sturridge immediately took to social media once he realized that the pup had been taken in the burglary, offering a £30,000 reward for the safe return of the dog in a video message.

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

"Offering big money for anyone who could help find his four-legged pal, he added: "£20,000 straight up.

"Bring the dog back to this address, I'll be moving out tomorrow or the next day. I want my dog back man".
