The recent theft of Lady Gaga’s two French Bulldogs has put one of the potentially disturbing parts of owning the adorable breed in the spotlight.

On Wednesday, the singer’s dog walker was shot while walking her three French Bulldogs in Hollywood, TMZ reports. Although one of the Frenchies ran off and was later found, the other two, Koji and Gustav, were stolen.

Gaga has since offered up a $500,000 reward for the safe return of the dogs with no questions asked. The Robbery-Homicide Division of the Los Angeles Police Department will be taking over the investigation.

The demand for furry companions has increased amid the coronavirus pandemic and dog thefts have continued to rise.

It is unclear whether Koji and Gustav were targeted because they belonged to the singer, but this isn’t the first theft involving French bulldogs. 

In January, three men robbed a woman in San Francisco at gunpoint for her French Bulldog named Chloe, Inside Edition reports.

At the time, Sarah Vorhaus was taking Chloe for a walk outside of her apartment building when three men attacked her. 

“I heard a man’s voice behind me that said ‘Give me your dog,’ and I turned around and I saw he had a gun held up,” she said.

A website has since been set up in hopes of finding Chloe with a $20,000 reward.

French Bulldogs are the most stolen among all dog breeds, according to the American Kennel Club. Due to their small size, they are easy to transport and are also considered high-value dogs.

The breed is known for its signature bat ears and even disposition. Frenchies are popular among city dwellers and aren’t known for barking, which makes them perfect watchdogs.

In the event that a French Bulldog does bark, they are most likely alerting their owner whether it's something strange or a possible health issue they are struggling with.
