LADY GAGA’s two stolen French Bulldogs . . . Gustav and Koji . . . are back at home.
They were recovered on Friday evening . . . nearly two full days after they were stolen by thieves who ambushed and shot her dog-walker in Hollywood.
A woman turned the dogs into the police. TMZ says the they were found tied to a pole in an alley, “miles away” from where they were abducted. As for the reward, Gaga will “gladly” pay the $500,000 to the finder.
There are no specifics on how or when the woman will be rewarded, but Gaga is currently in Rome working on a movie.
The suspects are still on the loose. The LAPD says they’re looking for two Black men in their early 20s . . . one with blond dreadlocks.
One of them was armed with a semi-automatic handgun.
The dog-walker Ryan Fischer is expected to make a full recovery. His family said he’s “receiving extraordinary care in the hospital.”
And Gaga said, quote, “I continue to love you Ryan . . . you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”
The fact that the dogs were abandoned by the thieves so soon seems to suggest these guys had no idea they were stealing Gaga’s dogs . . . and they probably panicked when the news blew up.
They also never contacted her with a ransom demand. So it seems like the plan was just to sell them, since French Bulldogs can be very expensive.
There’s also this: TMZ says that Ryan and the dogs weren’t just making a trip around the block. They’d walked down to a liquor store . . . and were on their way back. The store was seven blocks away from the site of the attack.

The liquor store is on Sunset Boulevard, a major street in Hollywood . . . so it’s possible that the thieves saw Ryan and the dogs either around the liquor store, or walking along Sunset, and then ambushed him when he’d turned onto a quieter, residential street.
