The dogwalker of pop star Lady Gaga who sustained gunshots while trying to fight off a thief who made off with two of the singer's bulldogs will make a full recovery.
In addition, the two adorable stolen canines, Koji and Gustav, have since been found safe and unharmed.
The recent news follows after it was reported that a thief managed to assault the dogwalker, Ryan Fischer, and made off with Koji and Gustav on Wednesday night.
Fischer, who is a close friend of the Poker Face and Bad Romance singer, tried to fight off the thief but was injured after the thief shot him in the chest with a semi-automatic handgun.
A third bulldog, Miss Asia, was able to evade capture thanks to Fischer's courageous actions.
Jonathan Tippett, commanding officer of the LAPD's robbery-homicide division, revealed that a woman brought the dogs to the LAPD’s Olympic community police station on Friday evening.
Earlier in the week, a source close to the singer and actor, who is currently in Rome working on the Ridley Scott film Gucci, said the 34-year-old previously offered a $500,000 [€414,178.15] reward 'to anyone who has her two dogs, no questions asked.'
The source also provided an email address – KojiandGustav@gmail.com – for anyone with information about the dognapping to make contact.
According to The Guardian, the French bulldog is a popular breed, and puppies can cost several thousand dollars, and in recent years, there has been a growing trend in the US of the dogs being stolen for resale and breeding.
Gaga, whose real name is Stefanie Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has since paid tribute to her friend on Instagram, saying: 'I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family.'
'You’re forever a hero,' she added
It's safe to say that Mr. Fischer definitely deserves a round of Applause for his bravery on that fateful night.
