Lady Gaga’s bulldogs who were abducted at Gunpoint return safely
Lady Gaga’s two stolen French bulldogs who were stolen earlier this week, were turned over to a Los Angeles police station on Friday and have been “reunited” with the pop singer’s representatives, a police spokesman said. The pop superstar had offered a $500,000 reward for the return of her French Bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, stolen in a violent altercation in Los Angeles that left a man fighting for his life, police and a source close to the singer said Thursday.
A woman brought the dogs to the LAPD’s Olympic Community Police Station, just northwest of downtown, around 6 p.m, said Capt. Jonathan Tippett, commanding officer of the elite Robbery-Homicide Division.

The dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot once as he walked three of the singer’s dogs in Hollywood. Video showed a white sedan pulling up and two men jumping out. They struggled with the dog walker before one pulled a gun and fired a single shot before fleeing with two of the dogs. The third escaped and has since been reunited with Lady Gaga’s representatives.
The man, identified in multiple media reports as the singer’s dogwalker, was shot with a semi-automatic handgun and remains in critical condition, the LAPD said.
The woman who dropped off the dogs appears to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with Wednesday night’s attack, officials said.
