Lady Gaga is speaking out after her two dogs were were taken from her dog walker, Ryan Fischer, who was shot and injured in a horrific attack this week.
On social media, Gaga shared several photos of her dogs Koji and Gustav, along with a note explaining the reward offer of $500,000 in exchange for their safe return, and also shared that her "heart is sick" following the incident. She wrote:
"My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness. I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to contact us. Or, if you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same."
Gaga continued by offering her concern for Fischer, who is expected to make a full recovery following the shooting, adding, "I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero."
Earlier this week, Fischer was walking Koji and Gustav in the evening when a car pulled up alongside him. Two men then got out of the car demanding the dogs be handed over to them, and then eventually shot and struck Fischer.
In a statement to USA Today, Ryan's family said, "Our beloved Ryan was the victim of a horrible, violent crime on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles. Thankfully, Ryan is receiving extraordinary care in the hospital right now and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery." They added, "Ryan loves Gustavo and Koji as much as Lady Gaga does; so we join in her plea for their safe return."
