Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward with “no questions asked” for the safe return of her pets after thieves shot her dog walker and stole two of her French Bulldogs.
On Wednesday night (Feb. 24, 2021), the dog walker had been out with Gaga’s three dogs shortly before 10 p.m. when one “and possibly more” gunmen approached. It’s not clear what words were exchanged, but the dog walker was shot and the robber escaped with two of the dogs owned by Lady Gaga, named Koji and Gustav.
Fortunately, the dog walker’s injuries are not life-threatening and he’s expected to fully recover after he was taken to the hospital.
During the robbery, Gaga’s third dog had run away, but it was later recovered by one of the singer’s bodyguards. Gaga is currently in Rome working on her next movie, but TMZ reports she’s “extremely upset” by the news and is offering $500,000 to anyone who can return the French Bulldogs with no questions asked.
The unidentified gunman is still on the loose as authorities are investigating. It’s unclear if the robber knew if the dogs were owned by Lady Gaga and targeted them specifically.
As French Bulldogs are very expensive, it’s possible the shooting and robbery was a crime of opportunity perpetrated by someone looking to make a quick buck. In any case, let’s hope both Koji and Gustav are soon found so they can be returned.
