The sources said the pop star "is offering half-a-million dollars to anyone who has her 2 dogs, no questions asked. Anyone who has the dogs can use this email — — to retrieve the reward."

According to Los Angeles police, the victim was walking the dogs when an unknown male shot him about 9:40 p.m. local time in the 1500 block of North Sierra Bonita Avenue. The dog walker was "recovering well," according to the sources close to Gaga.

Authorities are searching for the shooter, who they said used a semiautomatic gun and sped from the scene in a white vehicle.

The case has been assigned to the police department's robbery-homicide division.
French bulldogs are small and known for their large, bat-like ears. They are the fourth most popular dog breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.

In October 2018, Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, posted a photo series of the dogs in Chia pet costumes for Halloween. She performed the national anthem on Inauguration Day.

According to The Guardian, the LAPD revealed she's in a relationship with the father of one of the suspects.

It's understood those arrested didn't know the pet belonged to Lady Gaga.

As quoted by E!, District Attorney George Gascón said in a press release: "Evidence suggests the suspects knew the great value of the breed of dogs and was the motivation for the robbery."
