Lady Gaga’s dog walker is in serious condition after an unidentified gunman shot him multiple times in the chest and stole the singer’s pet pooches.

According to multiple reports, Ryan Fischer, 30, was walking Gaga’s three French bulldogs, Gustavo, Koji and Miss Asia, on N. Sierra Bonita Avenue in Los Angeles around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when the assailant shot him from a white car and stole two of the pups.

Footage from the scene obtained by L.A.’s KABC-TV showed Fischer on the ground and clinging to Miss Asia. The dog walker appeared alert and was able to communicate with first responders before they rushed him to the hospital, the news outlet reported.

“We’re just sick over it, it’s really horrible,” the 34-year-old singer’s father, Joe Germanotta, told the New York Post. “It’s like someone took one of your kids.”

According to the newspaper, Germanotta told his distraught daughter, who is currently in Italy, to “just try to be strong and remember that they’re together” and “comforting each other.”

Gaga has offered a $500,000 award, no questions asked, for the return of her stolen dogs, Gustavo and Koji.
