Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot in the chest while walking her three french bulldogs Wednesday night in Hollywood. Tw0 of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, were taken by the assailants, while the third, Miss Asia, ran away and was later safely recovered.
Thankfully, Fischer is in stable condition according to a statement by the LAPD. It is unclear whether the the gunmen knew these dogs belonged to Lady Gaga for certain. Even without a celebrity connection, french bulldogs are considered valuable and have been stolen for that reason in the past.
While the star has not made any official statements yet, she is reportedly offering a hefty reward for her missing and beloved pups. A source close to Gaga has said that she, “is offering half-a-million dollars to anyone who has her two dogs, no questions asked. Anyone who has the dogs can use this email, [email protected] to retrieve the reward.”
