Lady Gaga’s dogs found safe after armed robbery

28 February, 2021

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27. (BBC) - Lady Gaga’s two stolen French bulldogs have been found safe and handed over to the police, according to officials.

The two dogs, stolen in an armed robbery, have been ‘reunited’ with the singer’s representatives, police said.

Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot by two men who abducted the dogs in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

He is in hospital and his family said on Friday that he was expected to make a full recovery.

Details of how the dogs were recovered are unclear. The Associated Press said a woman had brought them to the Olympic Community Police Station in LA and the singer’s representatives had confirmed they were hers. The woman appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the robbery, a police spokesman said.

Lady Gaga had offered USD 500,000 for their safe return but it is not clear if the reward has been claimed.

The star - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - is currently in Rome working on a new Ridley Scott film, Gucci. In her first public reaction to the attack, Gaga tweeted on Friday: “My heart is sick.”

“I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness. I will pay $500,000 for their safe return.” And in another Twitter post, the singer wrote: “I continue to love you Ryan Fischer you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”

Gaga is known to be extremely protective of her dogs, who have accompanied her to the American Music Awards and her 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show.

Footage has emerged showing one of the suspects firing at Mr Fischer before making off with the dogs, Koji and Gustav.

A third bulldog, named Miss Asia, ran away and was later recovered by police.
