An armed robbery on February 24th of this year sent shock waves through the world when Ryan Fischer was shot while walking Lady Gaga’s dogs. He was sent to the hospital with gunshot wounds and the attacker made off with two of Gaga’s French bulldogs.
Koji and Gustav, the dogs, were returned by the Los Angeles police, but Fischer is still in the hospital.
He does seem to be doing alright; he recently spoke about the attack on social media.
He thanked his supporters and wrote kind words for Gaga’s dog Asia, who managed to escape the attack.
Fischer shared two Instagram posts on March 1st.
“Four days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gunshot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me,” Ryan led off by saying. “My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own. I cradled Asia as best I could, thanked her for all the incredible adventures we’d been on together, apologized that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself.”
“I will write and say more later, but the gratitude for all the love I feel from around this planet is immense and intense. I feel your healing support! Thank you. I am humbled and grateful that the attention and focus from the police were enough to get Koji and Gustav back to safety, and I know they are committed to bringing these criminals and attempted murderers to justice. I am so appreciative of everything you continue to do.”
Gaga initially offered a half-a-million dollar reward. She also thanked Fischer, calling him her “hero”.
“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family.” She continued, “You’re forever a hero.”
Fischer continues to recover in the hospital. His social media has been flooded with people wishing him a speedy recovery and thanks for saving the dogs.
