A few days ago, singer, songwriter, and actress Lady Gaga sent out a desperate appeal for the retrieval of her beloved two French bulldogs, setting a $500k reward on the return of her pets. Last week, the news broke out reporting the traumatizing abduction of the pets and the attack on the dog-walker that was taking the pups for a stroll. The incident took the internet by storm, and many were beyond shocked to learn that Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest during the abduction.
What Went Down?
The tragic incident took place in Hollywood on 24th February. When Fischer took Gaga’s three French bulldogs for a walk, things quickly changed for the worse in the absence of their owner. It was reported that a white Nissan Altima drove up and ambushed the dog walker.
Two men tried to steal the pets, and when Ryan resisted it, one of them took out a gun and shot the dog-sitter, and the two Frenchies, Koji, and Gustav, were taken. Unfortunately, the police weren’t able to profile the dognappers but, were able to get a useable description.
Fischer was taken to the hospital after he was found holding on to the third dog- Miss Asia- protecting her from being taken as well. Though the wounds are grave, Ryan is expected to make full recovery. The remaining pet was returned to Lady Gaga after one of her bodyguards picked her up from the LAPD Station.
Where Was Gaga Amid the Havoc?
As horrifying as it sounds, Lady Gaga was watching it unravel from afar. She is currently in the city of Rome in Italy, where she is shooting an upcoming movie. The star took to Instagram after hearing the news of the abduction.
She made an emotional plea for the return of her dogs and set out a massive cash reward in exchange for the pups. She also sent out her well-wishes for Ryan and commended his bravery, calling him a hero in the eyes of Gaga and her family.

Return of the Frenchies
On 26th February, an unknown woman showed up at the LAPD with the dogs and dropped them off at the station. The LAPD confirmed that the pets were unharmed. There is no word on whether the woman will receive the cash reward or if there will be an investigation regarding the whole situation.
As of now, the LA Police Department states that the woman seems to be unassociated with the attack on Fischer.
