On Wednesday night, two of Lady Gaga's French Bulldogs were stolen by armed thieves who shot her dog walker and friend, Ryan Fischer. Gaga's dogs Koji and Gustav were turned in "safe" at the LAPD Olympic station around 6 P.M. PST., per ABC News. LAPD officer Mike Lopez told Variety that the dogs were returned safe to Gaga's representatives.
The thieves captured Koji and Gustav, but her third dog, Miss Asia, managed to run away and was recovered by her bodyguard, per TMZ. Gaga is in Rome filming a new movie, but she offered a $500,000 reward to anyone who found Koji and Gustav.
Brandi Hunter, a spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club, told Reuters that French Bulldogs are popular targets among thieves because they can be sold for several thousand dollars each.
"My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago," Gaga wrote on Instagram. "My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness. I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to contact us. Or, if you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same. I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You're forever a hero."
Fischer, who was reportedly shot one time in the chest, is currently recovering and expected to make a full recovery, per his friends and family. He is in stable condition and texted a friend that he is breathing on his own.
