Daniel Sturridge was pictured today with his beloved Pomeranian Lucky Luccie the day after he had reclaimed him after a raid on his home in Los Angeles.
The former Liverpool star was spotted leaving a $ 1.3 million (£ 1.03 m) possession with a companion before he grabbed the dog and turned it upside down as he walked to his car.
It comes when the rapper, who claimed to have found Sturridge's dog with his cousin, said they didn't get the promised $ 30,000 reward.
The 29-year-old offered the sum on Instagram after being desperately abandoned when the pet was abducted from his $ 1.5 million home in Los Angeles on Monday night.
The next evening, Sturridge and friends left for southern Los Angeles to gather the esteemed dog after the dog was found.
However, after this trip, Killa Fame tweeted, that he did not & # 39; substantial reward & # 39; received, despite allegedly handing over the dog to the soccer player.
& # 39; So unfair & # 39 ;, he tweeted, & dog Lucci found me and my cousin & # 39 ;.
& # 39; $ 30,000 was just a lie & # 39 ;, he also said before adding: & # 39; If I was white, I would get the reward! & # 39;

Sturridge is now reunited with his beloved dog (which he sees on the left). It came when rapper Killa Fame posted a photo of a young boy who was probably a family member with a dog that looked like Sturridge & # 39; s
The rapper asked & # 39; is this Lucci & # 39; and has placed several images of the dog being held on a car seat
Killa Fame later tweeted the football player: & # 39; Man I got him & # 39 ;. It is unclear whether he was involved in his return. LAPD does not believe that the person who sent it back was associated with the crime
Forensic police officers were seen yesterday outside the Sturridge mansion in West Hollywood to make prints of his broken door
Messages from the Sturridge agent who was uploaded to Twitter by the rapper say Sturridge wanted to express his gratitude & # 39; and & # 39; would ensure that you are paid appropriately & # 39 ;.
They also asked to delete the messages.
In a video posted on Instagram after collecting the dog, Sturridge said: & Good morning everyone. I just want to say that we wake up with good news that Lucci was officially brought home. Myself and some friends went to southern LA last night to pick him up.
& # 39; In LA we actually said they had it, they were in south LA on the east side, so we were last night (Tuesday) around half past ten & # 39; drove there in the afternoon and picked him up.
& # 39; Absolutely honored. Can not believe it. I want to thank everyone on social media who supported us and drew attention to what was going on and I am grateful to all fans around the world, all influencers, celebrates, general people and media. & # 39;

& # 39; He's still there somewhere … please help everyone bring my dog home, & # 39; wrote the football this morning before the dog was recovered
Sturridge urged everyone to contact him when he posted a video of the dog on Instagram yesterday. It has since been found
His home in Los Angeles was raided by the night, with thieves grabbing the dog through the back door
Sturridge then posted a picture of cheerful Lucci playing with toys on the balcony of his house.
Yesterday, agents in the West Hollywood mansion came to the Premier League to make DNA prints of his back door, broken into pieces by thieves.
& # 39; If anyone has any information, please contact us as soon as possible & # 39 ;, he wrote. & # 39; A substantial reward will be organized. We just want the dog back. Send a video from him and we can talk. Dog was stolen from West Hollywood at 11:30 am last night. & # 39;
But it turned out that the dog returned after a deal between social media. LAPD does not believe that the person who sent it back was associated with the crime.
Earlier, a rapper named Killa Fame posted photos of a young boy who was probably his family member with a dog that had the same markings as Sturridge's. He tweeted the soccer player and said: & # 39; Man I got him & # 39 ;.
In a video he posted, the boy can be seen while holding the pet while a man from the camera says: & sir, I found your dog. Here it is exactly here Mr Sturridge, I have the dog here. You need your dog, I have the dog now. Please look. & # 39;
It is unclear whether the rapper was involved in the return of the dog or whether money changed owner.

Sturridge has previously uploaded an emotional video of himself in which he showed his followers the broken glass door and begged for the safe return of his beloved pet – presumably the only one of its kind in the world.
In an earlier appeal to people watching social media, Sturridge said: & Listen, someone broke into the house in LA, took my dog out of the house. Listen, who knows who's broken my cradle, I'll pay you everything, I'm dead seriously.
& # 39; I want to know who took my ***. I want to know what happened. I want to know why they caught my dog. I want to know why they brought bags from above.
I want to know what's going on. How can you break into someone's house in LA and take a dog? Are you crazy? Do you break into a house and take a dog?
& # 39; Yo, please, find my dog, I pay for everything, I am dead seriously. & # 39;
He offered the payment in another video and said: & # 39; The one who returns my dog, 20 mille, upright. Upright. 20 Gs. 30 Gs, whatever. Take my dog back. Take my dog back to this house, I will leave this b **** anyway.
Sturridge has also uploaded a video to his social media showing three hooded men next to his house
The house where Sturridge stayed, from where the dog was stolen on Monday night
& # 39; Take the dog back to this address. I am leaving tomorrow or the next day. I want my dog back and I will pay everything, it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter what the costs are. 20 or 30 grand, bring my dog back.
& # 39; You don't get more than that, and if you are, let me know and I will pay more than they do. I want my dog back. & # 39;
In a following video, Sturridge added: & # 39; Bro, they took my dog, they took two or three bags from my house. They jumped over the fence.
& # 39; We are in Los Angeles, West Hollywood. Look, my shirt is on the floor. They jumped over the fence. Whoever is so smart to come and take my dog, look that we can get your money, it's not about the money.
He left his shirt on the floor just outside his house, with thieves who had stolen bags
Sturridge appealed and said he would pay more than anyone else for his dog
& # 39; If you try to earn money, come back and we'll pay you for the dog, it's nothing. Don't sell my dog to someone else, we'll pay more. It's that simple.
& # 39; Come back to the crib, bring the dog back, organize it, but you want to organize it.
& # 39; I want the dog back, we pay everything for the dog. & # 39;
And in his story on social media, he continued: & # 39; It's a Monday, family. Who was home at 11.30? We've been gone for two hours. It does not make any sense.
& # 39; Someone will find my dog please. Like I said before, I pay everything. It's not about the money. I just want my dog, that simple. & # 39;
He also wrote in an emotional title: & Someone has stolen my dog. I'll pay for everything. I want him back. & # 39;
Sturridge added: & I will pay for everything. It's not about the money. I just want my dog & # 39;
The dog is a Pomeranian dog with husky markings – probably the only one in the world
