LADY Gaga will cover the cost of her dog walker’s $97,000 medical bill after he was shot and left for dead, according to reports.
The Born This Way singer was horrified by the Hollywood dognapping in which her two French Bulldogs were taken and Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest.

She has called Ryan a “hero” and wants to compensate him following the ordeal.
A source told the Mirror: “Gaga feels horrendous about what happened to Ryan and wants to make sure he is looked after.
“She absolutely adores him and is forever indebted to him for his bravery.
“She also wanted to compensate him for lost work, and has been wishing him a speedy recovery.”

The injured 30-year-old is expected to make a full recovery although remains in hospital.
The Sun has contacted representatives for Gaga for comment.
The Oscar-winner’s French bulldogs were found safe on Friday.
An unnamed woman brought the two treasured pups to an LAPD station just after 6pm – two days after the horror shooting.

Detectives and a representative for the singer went to the Olympic Community Police Station – which is just over six miles from the scene of the robbery – and confirmed the identity of the unharmed dogs.
Gaga, 34, is currently filming a movie in Rome.
The mystery woman who dropped off the dogs appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the Wednesday night attack on Gaga’s dog walker, LAPD Cpt John Tippett said.
It was unclear how the woman obtained the dogs or if she would be in line for the $500,000 reward offered by Gaga this week for their safe return.

“Both of Lady Gaga’s dogs have been turned in to a local police station, and they have been safely reunited with Lady Gaga representatives,” tweeted the LAPD.
Earlier Friday, Lady Gaga broke her silence to praise Fischer as a “hero”.
The singer also begged for the safe return of her dogs and repeated her half-million-dollar reward to get them back.
She shared a few photos of her two missing pets and wrote: “My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago.
“My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness.
“I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to contact us.”

Gaga added: “Or, if you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same.
“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”
He was taken to the hospital in a “grave” condition, officials said at the time.
Gaga is reportedly speaking with him, and he is now breathing on his own after being shot in the chest.

Gaga’s dad Joe Germanotta told Fox News: “We are [relieved]. Stephanie’s been communicating with him and he’s out of intensive care.
“He’s on the mend. We’re thankful for that.”
Shocking surveillance footage from the scene showed a man believed to be Fischer strolling down the street with her three pets, before a white car pulls up beside him.
Two men then appear to get out of the vehicle and run toward the man, who begins crying out for help.

As he screams, a gun can be heard being cocked, while one of the men repeatedly shouts, “Give it up.”
A gunshot rings out, followed by more harrowing screams from the man, who is then seen on the ground.
A neighbor shouts over to the victim, “We’re calling 911 for you,” while he replies: “I’m bleeding out of my heart, of my lung, I’m bleeding out of my chest.”
He added: “They stole two dogs,” before a neighbor can be seen approaching him and he confirms: “They’re Lady Gaga’s dogs.”

The Sun exclusively revealed that a hero neighbor kept Ryan alive by tending to him after the shooting before cops arrived.
Buck Angel, who lives in front of the spot where Ryan was gunned down, told The Sun: “I heard screaming, which we hear a lot in this neighborhood, but it wasn’t stopping.
“I got up and looked right over my fence and saw a car.
“As soon as I went to pull the knob to go out and see what was going on, I heard a gunshot.”

Buck added: “I ran back in my house with my wife and my dogs. We got on all fours and called 911 immediately and then I heard a second gunshot.
“I had no idea what was happening but once everything calmed down, I came out and saw the guy on the floor. I thought he had died.
“I had no idea it was Lady Gaga’s dogs until the guy told our neighbor who was helping him.
“The guy was conscious while he was laying there. It all happened so fast and the police got here really quick.”
