- Lady Gaga offered a huge reward to anyone who would bring her two dogs back home
- The 34-year-old learnt that her pets had been kidnapped while she was filming a movie in Rome
- Her dogwalker, Ryan Fischer, was shot and wounded during the attack
American celebrity Lady Gaga’s dog walker is on the road to recovery.
The ailing man was shot four times in the chest during a robbery and dognapping that occurred in Hollywood at 9.40pm.
A source close to the musician told People magazine that Ryan Fischer had been critically wounded during the scuffle but seems to be getting better.
He is currently receiving medical help.
Gaga had earlier offered to pay anyone who would return her dogs Koji and Gustav safely.
The Always Remember Us This Way singer was in Rome during the horrific attack.
She had gone to film her upcoming movie House of Gucci when she learnt that her bulldogs had been grabbed and Ryan was injured in the process.
“She was worried about her friend and her dogs. It was a terrible start to her Italian work trip,” the source said about Gaga’s reaction.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the dog walker to American artist Lady Gaga was reportedly attacked and shot four times in the chest by unknown gunmen. On Wednesday, February 25, the dog walker was attacked while in Los Angeles at night and the gunmen took two of the artist's dogs. However, the Just Dance hitmaker has issued a reward worth R6.7 million for anyone who can find her beloved bulldogs.
According to TMZ, Ryan Fischer was attacked near his home in West Hollywood while walking the singer's dogs, Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo.
Currently, the 34-year-old singer is in Italy and judging by the upfront money she has pledged to give whoever finds her dogs, she is determined to do everything to get her pets back. Sources said that the dog walker is thankfully recovering well in hospital.
However, police officers have said that they cannot ascertain if the gunmen who stole the dogs knew they belonged to the wealthy singer as thugs also target French bulldogs because of their high demand and worth.
They also confirmed that the shooting happened but could not ascertain if it was really robbery or if something else transpired. They are still waiting to talk to the dog walker as he was rushed to a local hospital in an unknown condition.
