A gunman made off with two of Lady Gaga’s French Bulldogs after shooting her dog walker in Hollywood, Calif. on Wednesday night.
The Los Angeles Police Department says the shooting occurred last night around at 9:40 p.m. local time on the 1500 block of Sierra Bonita Avenue. An unidentified male known as Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot four times by an unknown male at an undisclosed location. The victim was rushed to an area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
The 11-time Grammy Award-winning singer is offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her dogs, Koji and Gustav, no questions asked. The gunman attempted to steal a third French Bulldog named Miss Asia, which was recovered by Gaga’s bodyguard close to the scene after the dog ran away.
Gaga has allowed her dogs to share the spotlight with appearances at award shows along with her 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show performance.
“Frenchies” are the fourth most-popular dog breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.
Gaga was not in Los Angeles at the time of the shooting. She’s currently working on a film in Rome, Italy, according to sources. The singer recently took the stage to perform the National Anthem at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Her press representative said anyone with information on the whereabouts of Gaga’s dogs can email KojiandGustav@gmail.com.
