Lady Gaga’s two French Bulldogs Koji and Gustav have been found safe and unharmed after being stolen in Hollywood on Wednesday the 24th of February 2021.
The popstar offered a $US500,000 ($A628,155) reward for the return of her dogs after her dog walker Ryan Fischer was shot on Sierra Bonita Avenue during an armed robbery. One of the dogs, Miss Asia escaped and was recovered by police.

The two other dogs, Koji and Gustav were recently found tied to a pole several miles from where they were kidnapped. They were found by a woman who took them to Olympic Community Police Station and sources confirm that she was not connected to the kidnapping and was passing by. It is believed she received the $500,000 reward that was initially offered.
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.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 26, 2021
Her dog walker Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest during the incident but is expected to make a full recovery, according to his family. TMZ reports in a statement from the family: "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."
Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, was away filming in Rome when the incident happened and will reportedly pay for Fischer's medical bills.
