Lady Gaga is reportedly offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her French Bulldogs after her dog walker was shot during a savage attack in Hollywood.

Ryan Fischer, 30, was walking near his home the three dogs on Wednesday at around 9.40pm local time, when he was approached by two men and shot four times in the chest.

Two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav were stolen in the shooting, while the third - Miss Asia - ran away before later being found by police.

A semi-automatic gun used in the attack has not yet been recovered and the gunman is still at large.

Thankfully, Mr Fischer is understood to be recovering from the brutal attack.

Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, is thought to currently be in Italy for filming.

The pop star is now understood to be offering the huge amount of money, which is around £353,000, for the safe return of her beloved pets.

According to TMZ, an email address has now been set up for the perpetrators to claim the money "no questions asked".
