Lady Gaga may not have been the specific target of the now-famous dognapping case, based on new evidence of where her assistant was walking just minutes before the shooting.
According to multiple reports, Ryan Fischer was walking the singer’s two French Bulldogs several blocks away from her home. The operating theory is that the assailants may have gotten a good look at the poochies in the minutes before the attack.
As we reported, pure breed French Bulldogs can go for thousands of dollars on the open market — including their puppies which can be worth much more.

According to law enforcement, the dog walker was not just talking a short walk around the block in the minutes before the brutal attack. In fact, he was at a convenience store over seven blocks away before heading back towards Gaga’s house.
The singer’s assistant, and the three dogs, were spotted at Almor Wine & Spirits at the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and Fairfax in Hollywood. The point — cops believe the well-lit and heavily trafficked area could have been an unfortunate trap for Fischer after the assailants noticed the dogs breed.

At that point, the dog walker strolled another half a mile and was ambushed on a low-lit residential street. Again, the point is that police believe the thieves could have just seen the good-looking dogs walking, and followed them to this area.
In this scenario, it’s almost certain they did not know it was Lady Gaga’s animals.
LAPD has gone to the store in question, according to one report, and obtained surveillance video of Ryan and the dogs. Unfortunately, the white car and the suspects are not in the video.
The other reason authorities believe Lady Gaga was not the target. During the entire time they were in possession of the two animals, no one made a ransom demand.
As we reported, a woman found the dogs tied up to a pole in a random alley — miles away from the location of the crime. The dogs were unharmed. The good news — a good samaritan recognized the animals from all the media reports and turned them over to LAPD. For her efforts, she is collecting a reward from Lady Gaga worth $500,000.
The suspects are still at large.
