Lady Gaga’s dog-walker has spoken out for the first time from hospital about his “very close call with death.”Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest last month by a dognapper with a semi-automatic handgun in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
The man and an accomplice took two of Lady Gaga’s bulldogs, Koji and Gustav.
A third bulldog, Miss Asia, was unharmed. Fischer said she was his “guardian angel.” He credited seeing her next to him with giving him the determination to survive. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Lady Gaga’s pooches have been recovered, after a woman brought the dogs – unharmed – to a Los Angeles police station. Authorities said the woman found the dogs and was uninvolved in the incident. Police have yet to identify any suspects.
It is not known if Lady Gaga – who is currently shooting a film in Rome, Italy – will hand the woman the 500,000-dollar reward she initially offered for the safe return of the two dogs.
