Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs were safely recovered Friday evening, only two days after they were stolen by unknown thieves who shot and wounded the dogwalker, according to Los Angeles police.
According to the Associated Press, a strange woman brought the dogs to the LAPD’s Olympic Community Police Station around 6 p.m., Capt. Jonathan Tippett said.
Lady Gaga’s reps and detectives went to the station and confirmed that the returned dogs were actually the singer’s Frenchies, Koji and Gustav as the rapper is currently in Rome, filming a new movie.
The Grammy Award winner had in a statement on Friday said she was “heartbroken” over the loss of her beloved dogs, and also offered a $500,000 reward for anyone who returns her dogs. But it’s not immediately clear if the woman who returned the dogs will be walking away with the cash reward.
Tippet said the woman who dropped off the dogs appears to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with Wednesday night’s shooting and theft. Cops didn’t say how she got the dogs.
The LAPD says the incident remains under investigation.
Ryan Fischer, Gaga’s dog walker and friend, was shot in the chest Wednesday night while he walking her Frenchies, Gustav, Koji and Miss Asia. He is expected to make a full recovery soon.
“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Friday.
