Singer Lady Gaga is hoping for the safe return of her French bulldogs Koji and Gustav, who were stolen in the attack.
Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her two beloved dogs after her boyfriend was shot while walking them.
Ryan Fischer was attacked while walking the star’s French bulldogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustav in West Hollywood on Wednesday night.
Two of Lady Gaga’s dogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen, while Miss Asia escaped and was later recovered.
Mr. Fischer survived the attack and is believed to be recovering well.
The singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, has offered a $500,000 (£353,000) reward to recover her pets.
Los Angeles police said Mr. Fischer was shot by a male suspect at 9:40 p.m. local time (5:40 a.m. Thursday in the United Kingdom). The man fled in a white vehicle, police said.
A semi-automatic pistol was used in the attack, and the weapon has not yet been recovered.
Two French bulldogs were taken by the suspect, they added, and the shooter is still at large.
An LAPD spokesperson said, “The investigation is ongoing as the LAPD continues to search for the suspect or suspects.”
Lady Gaga was reportedly filming in Italy when the attack happened. Photos from the scene released by U.S. entertainment site TMZ show police holding a dog, though it is believed to be Miss Asia.
The star has shared pictures of herself with her pets on social media in recent years. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. last March, she posted that she was “hanging out at home with my dogs.”
