Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer has released a statement on Instagram, sharing what happened during the shooting last week.
Last week, Fischer was shot while walking Gaga’s three French bulldogs. One dog, Asia managed to escape but the other two, Koji and Gustav were stolen.
The dogs were then returned safely on Friday.
Now Ryan Fischer has shared what happened, describing Asia as an angel.
“4 days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gun shot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me,” he begins.
“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.”
He explains that in the moment, he hoped that staying calm and ensuring he’d described the missing dogs well enough, would help them get the police and media attention they needed.
“I am still in recovery from a very close call with death and have kept myself (for the most part, I mean I am human) from the growing media story,” he writes.
“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 am humbled and grateful that 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.”
Closing the statement, Fischer writes, “And now? A lot of healing still needs to happen, but I look forward to the future and the moment when I get bombarded with kisses and licks (and maybe even an excitement pee?) from Asia, Koji, and Gustav.”
