Dogs of American pop star, Lady gaga were snatched late Wednesday as some gun-toting robbers attacked her dog walker in Los Angeles and made off with two of the singer’s beloved French bulldogs, prompting the music icon to offer a $500,000 (N190m) reward for their return.
TMZ identifies the dog walker as Ryan Fischer. He was strolling along North Sierra Bonita Avenue with Gaga’s dogs, Gustav, Koji and Miss Asia around 9:40pm, when a car pulled up and two men attacked, according to police.
When Fischer put up a fight, one of the dognappers shot him one time with a semiautomatic handgun, and the duo sped off with the two dogs.
The distraught Gaga, who was in Italy at the time of the robbery, is offering a $500,000 (N190m) reward for the return of the dogs — no questions asked — and has set up the email address KojiandGustav@gmail.com for information.
Fischer “is thankfully recovering well” at a local hospital, a source familiar with the incident told The Post.
Detailed descriptions of the crooks weren’t immediately available.
Police said it wasn’t immediately clear if the crooks knew that the dogs belonged to Gaga, or targeted the pooches simply because French bulldogs are in high-demand, including on the black market.
