Lady Gaga offers $500,000 reward for return of her stolen bulldogs

Ryan Fischer was shot in Hollywood on Wednesday night as he walked Lady Gaga’s dogs. The thieves made off with two of her French Bulldogs.

Lady Gaga is offering a no-questions-asked $500,000 reward for the safe return of her French Bulldogs Koji and Gustav. They were stolen from the street in LA on Wednesday night after Gaga’s dog-walker Ryan Fischer was ambushed on the street. A third dog, Miss Asia, managed to get away and was picked up by police.

Fischer, who has known Lady Gaga for years, was rushed to hospital after being shot with a semi-automatic handgun whilst trying to prevent the ambushers from taking the dogs. His current condition is unknown but an insider source told Page Six that he is ‘thankfully recovering well.’

Why were Lady Gaga’s dogs stolen?

It is not clear whether Lady Gaga’s dogs were targeted specifically because of her fame or whether they were targeted because French Bulldogs are expensive and highly sought-after. They are particularly difficult to breed and are usually sold for a little over $2,000 but can fetch up to $10,000.

FBI investigating Lady Gaga’s dogs theft

According to The Sun, the robbery is even being investigated by the FBI as one line of enquiry suggests that the theft may have been politically motivated after Lady Gaga sang at Joe Biden’s inauguration. A source apparently told the tabloid that ‘The FBI wants to know exactly what motivated this incident.’

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga, who is currently in Italy filming Gucci with director Ridley Scott, is said to be distraught at the theft of her beloved dogs. She has set up the email address, imploring anyone with information about Koji and Gustav to come forward ‘no questions asked.’
