Police Recover Lady Gaga’s Dogs After Daring Robbery

Police announced through a tweet the recovery of Lady Gaga’s two dogs on Friday, February 26th, 2021, two days after the dogs were stolen in a daring theft.

The two French bulldogs, named Gustav and Koji, were stolen on the evening of Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. In the brazen robbery, unknown assailants attacked Lady Gaga’s dog walker on the street and shot him in the chest as he tried to fight them off, before making off with the two French bulldogs. They left behind one bulldog who was later secured by first responders.

The two dogs were found by a woman who then reached out to Lady Gaga’s staff to notify them that she had found the dogs. The woman later dropped off the two canines at the LAPD’s Olympic Police Station on Friday evening, according to LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division Commanding Officer, Captain Jonathan Tippet. The dogs were unharmed at the time of recovery.

Detectives and representatives of Lady Gaga went to the station to confirm that the recovered dogs were the same ones that were stolen from the popstar’s dog walker.

It is still a mystery as to how the woman found the dogs. However, preliminary investigations by the police showed that the woman was not a suspect in the theft. Police consider her to be a good Samaritan who has facilitated the safe return of the popstar’s dogs.

Due to the fact that investigations are still ongoing, and to protect the safety of the woman, police have not disclosed details about the woman’s identity or the location where she found the dogs.

Thanks to the quick action of first responders, doctors, and nurses, the dog walker, Ryan Fischer, survived the attack and is currently admitted in hospital. Reports from doctors say he is responding well to treatment, and they expect him to make a full recovery.

In an Instagram post sent out on February 27th, 2021, Lady Gaga thanked Ryan Fischer for risking his life to protect the popstar’s pet dogs, and said that he will always be a hero. At the time of the robbery, Lady Gaga was away in Italy for a film project she is working on.

After the two French Bulldogs were recovered, they were taken to a vet for check up, where it was confirmed that everything is fine. Speaking to the press, Lady Gaga’s father, Joe Germantota, said that the family was very happy to be reunited with the two dogs.

Before the dogs were found, Lady Gaga had announced that she’d offer a $500,000 reward to anyone who found the dogs, without asking any questions. Since the police were not involved in the reward, it is not clear whether the woman who found the dogs will get the $500,000. However, police say Gaga’s representatives are in contact with the good Samaritan.

Police are yet to determine whether the dogs were specifically targeted because they belonged to the popstar, or if it just a crime of opportunity.
