Lady Gaga's Two French Bulldogs Stolen And Returned In Wild Saga

Over the weekend, news broke out that Lady Gaga's two French Bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, were taken in Hollywood. And it makes the story even more horrific, the man who stole the dogs, also shot the trusted dog walker, Ryan Fischer. 

Thankfully, this awful story has a happy ending, Lady Gaga's dogs were returned to her and Ryan Fischer is set to make a full recovery. 

In a statement obtained by Rolling Stone, the Fischer family said, "Thankfully, Ryan is receiving extraordinary care in the hospital right now and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery. We cannot possibly say enough to thank all of the first responders, nurses, and doctors who have worked so tirelessly to care for Ryan. Of course, we also want to thank Lady Gaga who has shown nothing but non-stop love and concern for Ryan and our family right from the outset. Ryan loves Gustavo and Koji as much as Lady Gaga does; so we join in her plea for their safe return."

The scene plays out like this, Fischer was walking the French bulldogs as a car pulled up beside him, demanding he hand over the dogs. All three of Lady Gaga's dogs were initially taken, however, one dog named Miss Asia managed to escape and was soon recovered safely afterward. The male suspect then shot Fischer with a semi-automatic handgun and quickly fled the scene in a white sedan. Heartbroken, Lady Gaga offers half a million dollars as a reward for her dogs to be returned. 

As luck would have it, a woman walked into the LAPD's Olympic Community Police Station, with Koji and Gustav. Police say the woman appeared to be "uninvolved and unassociated" with the armed robbery. It's unclear how the dogs came to be in her care, but we're just happy the pups have been located, safe, and are now back home with their rightful owner. 

To all those with dog breeds out there, we encourage you to be careful as dog-napping seems to be occurring more often. If you're planning on getting a dog, perhaps consider adopting instead? Just another reason why a rescued mutt might be a better choice!
