Mark Fischer was walking Lady Gaga's three French Bulldogs last week when a car pulled up alongside them.
Two men then jumped out of the vehicle and demanded Fischer hand over the dogs - Koji, Gustav, and Miss Asia.
The dogwalker fights back
The brave dog walker tried to fight off the men before one pulled out a gun and let off a single shot, hitting Fischer in the abdomen. The dog thieves got away with Koji and Gustav. Miss Asia managed to escape the chaos but then returned to comfort Mark.
Fischer was rushed to a nearby hospital after local residents called first responders. He's now out of danger and expected to make a full recovery.
Lady Gaga's dog walker describes the attack
Mark described the ordeal from his hospital bed, explaining how Miss Asia, the one Bulldog who was able to get away from the dog nappers, helped him pull through.
We know dogs are always there for us when we need them - and Miss Asia certainly fulfilled her role as man's best friend on that day.
An unnamed woman returned the stolen dogs to a police station after seeing their pictures online. Police didn't share any details, but officers are confident she was uninvolved with the crime and will continue searching for the dognappers.
