The two French bulldogs belonging to pop star Lady Gaga are now safe and sound thanks to a good Samaritan.
On Wednesday night, February 24, drive-by assailants shot Gaga’s dogwalker multiple times in West Hollywood and fled the scene with the canines in a white sedan.
A woman reportedly found the dogs, which she recognized from the news about the crime, tied to a pole in an alley, on Friday night. She returned them to a nearby police station at about 6 p.m. local time upon being told to do so after using the email address that Lady Gaga and her team set up for any tips.
The woman is apparently now in line to receive the half a million bucks in reward money that Lady Gaga publicly offered for the return of her beloved pets named Gustav and Koji.
“Police believe the woman has no involvement in the dognapping,” TMZ noted.

The songstress, who is in Rome filming a Ridley Scott movie, is also apparently going to pay about $100,000 in medical bills for dogwalker Ryan Fischer who is currently hospitalized for his injuries in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
“Gaga feels horrendous about what happened to Ryan and wants to make sure he is looked after. She absolutely adores him and is forever indebted to him for his bravery,” an insider told the Mirror, which is consistent with what Gaga previously wrote on Instagram in the aftermath of the incident.

First responders at the scene on Wednesday evening found Fischer reportedly clinging to the third bulldog named Miss Asia.
The suspects are still at large, but Lady Gaga’s dad Joe Germanotta wants authorities to throw the book at them when the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division arrests them as the investigation continues.
“I want them apprehended so that they are tried for assault and/or attempted murder,” he told Fox News. “I am relieved that Ryan is going to be OK and Koji and Gustav were found. Thanks to the LAPD. Letting Koji and Gustav go unharmed was nice but they must be punished for what they did to Ryan. Special thanks to the doctors and nurses in the emergency room.”
French bulldogs are apparently big-ticket, avidly sought-after pets, but according to a separate TMZ report, Gaga’s celebrity status may be unrelated to the attack. “Although cops initially believed the target may well have been Gaga, there’s now a real possibility the perpetrators could have seen Ryan on Sunset Blvd., scoped out the dogs and followed him to a dark, residential street.” Lending credence to this theory is that the thieves never demanded a ransom TMZ suggested.
Watch an ABC News report on the case:
The actual charges against the suspects remain to be determined if or when they are taken into custody. Los Angeles is, however, devolving into a dystopia exacerbated by a soft-on-crime, Soros-backed district attorney.
