Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer speaks from hospital bed for first time after attack


Lady Gaga’s dog walker has broken his silence from his hospital bed after being shot during an attack that saw two of her dogs stolen in Los Angeles.

Ryan Fischer shared two photos of himself in hospital on Monday with bruises on his face while hooked up to a breathing machine.

In the lengthy caption, he wrote: “four days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gunshot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me.

“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, apologised that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself.”

Fischer continued: “Hopeful that my calm(ish) and forceful pleas for the urgency of my care as well as the focused descriptions of the dogs would be enough to help me and get enough police and media attention to find the boys, I looked back at my guardian angel. I smiled at her shaking form, thankful that at least she would be okay.

“From that point, right as the neighbors poured from their homes and restaurant to us on the sidewalk, life has taken a very sudden and unexpected turn.”

Fischer added that he’s still in recovery before going on to thank all the well-wishers for their support.

“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 felt your healing support! Thank you,” he wrote.

“First responders and health care workers: you literally saved my life and helped me take newborn walks, I can’t thank you enough.”

Fischer then gave special mention to Lady Gaga and celebrated that her pets, Koji and Gustav, were returned to her safely.

He told the singer: “Your babies are back and the family is whole… we did it! You have shown so much support throughout this whole crisis to both me and my family.

“But your support as a friend, despite your own traumatic loss from your kids, was unwavering. I love you and thank you.”
