Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs have been recovered after being stolen by thieves who shot her dog-walker.

Los Angeles police confirmed the singer’s two dogs – Koji and Gustav – had been found by an unnamed woman, who is “uninvolved and unassociated”.

She had simply “reached out to Lady Gaga’s staff to return them”.

The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted, “Both of Lady Gaga’s dogs have been turned in to a local police station, and they have been safely reunited with Lady Gaga representatives.”

The good news comes just days after Lady Gaga said her “heart was sick” over the violent robbery and promised a $500,000 reward for their safe return.

Lady Gaga, 34, also paid tribute to her dog walker, Ryan Fischer, who was shot in the chest four times during the attack.

She said, “My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness.

“I continue to love you, Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”

The horrific incident took place on Wednesday night (24th February) when Ryan was ambushed in West Hollywood as he walked the singer’s dogs, Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo, at around 10pm.

The suspects are believed to be young males and were reportedly wearing baseball caps. They fled the scene in a white Nissan, police said.

Thankfully, Ryan’s family have confirmed he is expected to make a full recovery following the incident. 

They told TMZ, “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.”

Having wowed in A Star is Born in 2018, Lady Gaga is currently in Italy filming her new movie, Gucci, which tells the story of the famous fashion family.

She will play Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci.
