In March 2021, two of Lady Gaga's French bulldogs were stolen after someone shot her dog walker, 30-year-old Ryan Fischer. Fisher has ties to the Hudson Valley.

Fischer was "conscious but barely breathing" when police arrived on the scene. The Daily Mail reports he was shot four times in the chest.

Fischer, who made a full recovery, is from the Hudson Valley. Fischer was born in Cincinnati but has called New York home for many years, most recently living in Hudson.

Two people ran off with the dogs after Fischer was shot, officials say. Police add the shooter used a semi-automatic gun and sped off in a white car.

Days later, Gaga's dogs were found. Police believe the woman who found and returned the dogs had no involvement with the robbery. It's unclear if the woman will receive the $500,000 reward Gaga offered.
