American singer Blu Cantrell has offered a staggering $1 million (GBP555,500) return for the safe return of her kidnapped pet dog Pepper.

The BREATHE beauty recently gave the beloved pooch a $90,000 (GBP50,000) diamond encrusted collar - but insists her dogknapper can keep the collar and claim the reward if the dog is returned.

Blu says, "Pepper is absolutely everything to me.

"I love her more than any man I have ever had in my life and for someone to steal her is such a painful experience, I can't even think about it without crying.

"I don't care about the collar - whoever stole her can keep it, I'll even give him a million dollars extra if he brings her back."
