Lady Gaga has offered a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her two French Bulldogs, who were stolen after a gunman shot her dog walker on Wednesday night.

The dog walker – named in the press as Ryan Fischer – was reportedly walking three of Lady Gaga’s French Bulldogs around 10PM in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, before being approached by two men. According to reports, he was shot by one of the men, and they both ran off with two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav.

The third French Bulldog – Miss Asia – reportedly ran away, but has since been found and safely returned.
According to LAPD Capt. Jonathan Tippet, Miss Asia “escaped and is back with the people that are taking care of them”.

Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – is currently in Rome working on the new Ridley Scott movie, Gucci. Her father, Joe Germanotta, has told several news outlets that he and his daughter are keeping in regular contact about the incident…

“We’re just sick over it, it’s really horrible,” Joe Germanotta told The New York Post.

“It’s like someone took one of your kids.”

“Our whole family is upset and praying Koji and Gustavo are not harmed,” he said in a separate interview with Fox News.

“Help us catch these creeps.”

The gunman and his accomplice are still said to be on the loose, but we have more positive news about the dog walker, Ryan Fischer. He was reportedly taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Anyone who has any info about Lady Gaga’s dogs is urged to email [email protected].

The LAPD is also asking anyone who has further information about the crime to call Robbery-Homicide detectives at (213) 486-6840.

We hope Lady Gaga’s two dogs are returned safely ASAP!
