Ryan Fischer, Lady Gaga’s dog-walker has spoken out for the first time from his hospital bed about his “very close call with death”
Fischer was shot in the chest last week by a dognapper with a semi-automatic handgun in Hollywood, Los Angeles while out on a walk with Gaga’s dogs.
A man and an accomplice took two of Lady Gaga’s bulldogs, Koji and Gustav.
A third bulldog, Miss Asia, was unharmed and wasn’t kidnapped.
Fischer has now credited his survival to the dog calling it his “guardian ayan Fischer.”
Lady Gaga’s dogs were recovered Friday night, after a woman brought the dogs unharmed to a Los Angeles police station.
Authorities said the woman found the dogs and was uninvolved in the incident. Police have yet to identify any suspects.
Fischer has now revealed his experience.
“My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Monday night, March 1.
“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 wrote.
Fischer tagged Gaga in his Instagram post: “your support as a friend, despite your own traumatic loss from your kids, was unwavering”.
“Your babies are back and the family is whole… we did it!”
He added that, although his life had “taken a very sudden and unexpected turn”, he was glad the dogs were safe and hoped the criminals would be brought to justice.
Fischer is expected to make a full recovery according to his doctors.
