Lady Gaga posted on Instagram on Friday that her “heart is sick” about her beloved French bulldogs that were stolen from her dog walker, who was shot as he walked them in Los Angeles.
“My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness,” Gaga’s caption, alongside a picture of the snatched pups, reads.
“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.”
On Wednesday just before 10 p.m., Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer was out for a stroll with the crooner’s three pups, Gustavo, Koji and Miss Asia, when two suspects ambushed him, shot him and stole Koji and Gustavo.
Images and video from the scene show Fischer writhing on the ground, screaming for help and clinging to Miss Asia, who managed to escape the dognapping.
The Los Angeles Police Department said the incident is being handled by the department’s Robbery and Homicide Division and is under investigation.
