Former Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge has posted an emotional Instagram plea after his beloved Pomeranian dog was stolen from his house in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Sturridge, 29, uploaded a clip revealing that his property had been burgled and his Pomeranian dog was missing.

He then posted several photos to his 3.4 million Instagram followers of the pet, vowing “to pay anything” to be reunited with his pet.

“Someone find my dog please, I’ll pay anything I’m dead serious. I want my dog back,” Sturridge said.

The former Liverpool star – who left the club at the end of last season – uploaded another clip following the incident, promising a “20 grand, 30 grand reward” to anyone who finds his dog.
