Lady Gaga grandmother Angeline Germanotta told newsmen on Saturday that she is ecstatic her famous granddaughter’s purloined pooches have been found safe.
“I was upset that my granddaughter was upset. I’m happy they recovered the dogs and I hope they’re alright,” Angeline Germanotta, 90, said.
Germanotta said she’s been a nervous wreck ever since she spoke to Lady Gaga when “this first happened,” late Wednesday. Although she’s not spoken to her granddaughter since the dogs were recovered.
“I’m letting her relax. This has been traumatic for her,” Germanotta said.
The two French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, were found safely Friday evening, only two days after they were unlawfully taken away by criminals who also shot and injured the dog walker, Ryan Fischer, according to a Los Angeles police statement.
An unknown woman returned the dogs to the LAPD’s Olympic Community Police Station around 6 p.m. on Friday. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga had offered a $500,000 reward price for anyone who returns the dogs.
