Lady Gaga’s dogs – Gustav and Koji – are still missing and she “prays” for her return and a speedy recovery for her friend and dog walker Ryan Fischer, who was shot.
“Lady Gaga is beside herself in this situation,” said a source close to the singer / actress Entertainment tonight. “Ryan’s not only her dog walker, he’s also her friend. She’s appalled that this happened.”
Fischer was walking the dogs on a Hollywood sidewalk at 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday when a white Nissan Altima pulled up, two men got out, and demanded that the French bulldogs be abandoned. Fischer fought the suspects, was shot and left screaming on the sidewalk, while Gustav, also known as Gustavo, and Koji were stolen. Gaga’s other Frenchie named Asia escaped.

“Her dogs are her babies and she is completely devastated and sick,” said the AND Source said of Gaga’s pets, for which she is offering a $ 500,000 reward.
And to be all over the world – she’s in Rome doing the Ridley Scott movie. Gucci – is difficult, no doubt especially in a pandemic, so that she cannot get on a plane and fly home.
“She feels a little helpless because she is far away in Italy, but does everything she can and prays for Ryan, Koji and Gustav,” said the AND Source added.

A graphic and very disturbing video of the violent incident has surfaced. It’s a surveillance video from a neighbor’s house and wasn’t released until after Gaga’s team gave OK in hopes that it would help catch the shooter and get their dogs home.
Fischer, who has long taken care of Gaga’s pets, yelled repeatedly after he was ambushed and said to “give up,” which apparently referred to the three dogs. After an argument, you could hear the gunshot and more screaming – and screaming too when two of the dogs were stolen. Fischer was then left on the sidewalk and asked for help from neighbors who came to his aid. You can hear him tell about the dogs being taken and say they belonged to Gaga, but he was obviously in great pain.
A LAPD source told TMZ that it was very likely that Gaga’s dogs were targeted for their celebrity status. This is because Fischer has just taken them for a short nightly walk. It was dark too. If grabbing the valuable breed of dog were a chance hit, it would be difficult to decipher the breed in low light.
However, it was no secret that Fischer went for walks with Gaga’s dogs. He often shares videos and photos of them on Instagram. He even took her to busy The Grove in Los Angeles for a Christmas portrait with Santa Claus. Gaga often re-shares his photos or tags him on her own posts. She also has an Instagram account for Asia where she shares pictures of her multiple dogs.
Fischer’s close friend Dr. Fred Pescatore was interviewed by AND and said Fischer moved from NYC to LA four years ago specifically for a walk with Gaga’s dogs. He said he was “great” at his job and looked after all of the animals under his care, including Oprah Winfrey’s dogs.
“”[He was] incredibly close to them. Incredible, “said Pescatore.” I mean, I would do anything for you. It’s just heartbreaking and I know he must have absolutely tried to protect her. … he would literally give up his life for one of our dogs, and I hope this time wasn’t. “
Pescatore added, “He was great at it. He was able to make them do whatever he wanted. He would send you videos whenever you were away. He really took care of these dogs like they were his kids and they were, I mean, he was amazing – kind, kind, gentle man. Very kind and gentle soul. He was really an artist and he actually left. He actually left the profession in just a few months. He finished performing with Gaga and went to go and do his artist thing. “
While Fischer is recovering, the focus is on bringing the dogs back. According to the TMZ report, no one has contacted Gaga or her agents who requested payment for her. In addition, the dogs are not chipped.
There have been some criticisms that their $ 500,000 reward could turn prominent pets into a target for thieves. A former FBI agent told the Daily Mail, “It’s always been an option for opportunistic criminals. But … paying without asking can open a kind of Pandora’s box. It should give the investigation a chance. After all, the dogs still did.” shot a man. “
Gaga did not speak publicly about the shooting and theft. Hours before the incident, she was seen at her hotel in Rome, where she stayed while at work Gucci.
Her grandmother Angeline Germanotta followed her father as she talked about the theft, saying, “It’s a cruel world we live in. I pray this young man will recover and I hope the dogs are safe and in.” good condition are health. “
