Where did his big German Shepherd dog go? Deion Sanders doesnâ€™t really care at the moment, heâ€™s just happy his prized and expensive pooch is home. The former NFL player was finally reunited with the $15,000 dollar pet on Thursday after the pooch went missing from his front yard for nearly nine months.
Sanders tweeted, â€śThank u Jesus. My dog is BACK! I won’t begin to tell u how a $15,000 dog goes missing and who took it. Wow! TRUTH.â€ť The ex-star athlete also included a picture of he and his 139-pound attack dog, named Yasko. He also wrote, â€śI almost cried when I saw him.â€ť
The purebred was specially trained to guard the Sanders home but the dog mysteriously disappeared last year. Still, questions remain as to what really happened regarding the animalâ€™s unknown whereabouts. Anonymous sources say the entire incident smells of foul play. â€śHe [the dog] would only go with someone he knew,â€ť the source told The Examiner.
Sanders is not a novice to tabloid headlines as of late. He and his ex-wife Pilar Bigger were involved in a very messy, public and ugly divorce last year. Bigger was arrested on domestic violence charges after she and a friend attacked Sanders. Â Before that, Bigger filed a $200 million dollar defamation suit against Deionâ€™s daughter from a previous marriage when she tweeted that Pilar was a, â€śgold-digging (expletive).â€ť
Anyway, allâ€™s well that ends well, welcome home Yasko!
