Everyone’s favourite Mother Monster – Lady Gaga, is this morning without her two beloved French bulldogs after a dramatic scene overnight in Hollywood, which saw her dog walker shot, and both pooches stolen.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told People magazine that the robbery occurred on Wednesday night around 9:40pm on Sierra Bonita Avenue in Hollywood. Authorities are yet to name the victim, but they are believed to be in a critical condition. At least one shooter, believed to be a male, was seen fleeing the scene in a vehicle along Hollywood Boulevard.

 Gaga’s third French Bulldog escaped the dramatic scene and has since been found. A representative for Lady Gaga, who is currently in Italy, confirmed the news. The two dogs that were stolen were Koji and Gustav, whom the singer adopted as a puppy in 2016.

“I’m proud to announce we added a new member to the #JOANNE family. I haven’t named him yet but I call him both cowpig and moopig in the meantime!” Gaga said in an Instagram post at the time of adoption.

In the United States, French Bulldogs are the fourth most popular breed of dog, and are often stolen with the motive of resale, with thieves knowing the can easily make thousands of dollars from their sale.

LAPD’s robbery/homicide division has taken over the case. While Lady Gaga is also offering a $500,000 reward for information on the whereabouts of her dogs.


Lady Gaga’s two french bulldogs have been found unharmed, after women, believed to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with Wednesday night’s attack, brought the two dogs to the Olympic Community Police Station, on Friday evening. Representatives for Lady Gaga and Police detectives have confirmed they are Gaga’s dogs.
Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, is expected to make a full recovery, however the ruthlessness of the dog-napping has left many in shock, with Gaga taking to instagram to post ,“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”
The attackers are yet to be caught.
