Lady Gaga's dogs safely returned after violent kidnapping

Ryan, bleeding on the ground, cuddles the dog as neighbours rush to help and the police are called.

It's not clear the kidnappers knew they were Lady Gaga's dogs, Gustavo and Koji.

Ryan, a dog lover who's walked pooches for the likes of Oprah Winfrey, was shot in the chest and is expected to make a full recovery, although he's expected to recover.

Her father, NY restaurateur Joe Germanotta (63), says the family are traumatised.

Lady Gaga's two French bulldogs, which were stolen by thieves who shot and wounded the dogwalker, were recovered unharmed Friday, Los Angeles police said. Of course, we also want to thank Lady Gaga, who has shown nothing but non-stop love and concern for Ryan and our family right from the outset.

In her first public statement since the Wednesday night crime, Lady Gaga took to social media, posting a series of photos of the bulldogs. It's just heartbreaking and I know he must've been absolutely trying to protect them.

According to People Magazine, one of the men can be heard in a video obtained by TMZ saying, "Give it up" to Fischer before a gunshot is heard.

A struggle ensues, and one gunshot can be heard, prompting Fischer to fall to the ground, screaming. "Hopefully, they'll be caught so we can get the dogs back safely". The black bulldog, Miss Asia, is seen on the video running back to Fischer on the ground after the assailants' vehicle disappears from view. Koji and Gustav were taken, while Miss Asia was not. The other man was described as wearing dark clothing.

The singer is now in Rome filming Gucci, and a source told Entertainment Tonight that "Lady Gaga is beside herself about this situation". "It's just really disgusting - it's like someone took one of your kids".

He's trying to keep his daughter calm, Joe told the New York Post newspaper. It's very appalling that someone would shoot somebody to steal some dogs.
