Lady Gaga's dog walker was shot four times in the chest while taking her beloved canines for their daily walk yesterday.
Apparently two men in baseball caps approached Ryan Fischer and shot him before stealing Lady Gaga's French bull dogs, Koji, Miss Asia, and Gustav.
Miss Asia somehow escaped and was discovered later by the police.
When police arrived at the scene Fischer was unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Why did those two men go to such an extreme to steal the dogs?
One thing is for sure, French bulldogs are notoriously expensive to buy. At this point, no one knows if it was a random attack, or if the thieves knew it was Lady Gaga's dogs.
Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for the return of the dogs with "no questions asked" according to news reports.
The whole incident highlights a very real problem that is increasing daily: Bulldog thefts nationwide.
