Lady Gaga's dog walker Ryan Fischer has spoken out for the first time after he was shot during a violent robbery. During the event, two of the singer's three French Bulldogs were stolen.

In an emotional Instagram post under the name Valley of the Dogs, Ryan shared his harrowing experience.

He shared two photographs where he was seen lying in a hospital bed. 

In two separate posts, he explained just what occurred on February 24th and described his love for Gaga's dogs and feelings for the singer.

"Four days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gunshot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me. My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own," he wrote in the post. 

Ryan explained that he cradled Asia, the only dog that remained, as best as he could. He thanked her for all the incredible adventures they had been on together and apologized to the pup that he could not defend her brothers. 

Ryan also resolved that he would try to save both Koji, Gustav, and himself.

"Hopeful that my calm(ish) and forceful pleas for the urgency of my care as well as the focused descriptions of the dogs would be enough to help me and get enough police and media attention to find the boys, I looked back at my guardian angel. I smiled at her shaking form, thankful that at least she would be okay." he continued.

He said that neighbors poured from their homes and restaurant to he and the dog on the sidewalk.

Ryan added that at that moment, his life had taken a very sudden and unexpected turn.

'I Felt Your Healing Support'

"I am still in recovery from a very close call with death and have kept myself (for the most part, I mean I am human) from the growing media story. I will write and say more later, but the gratitude for all the love I feel from around this planet is immense and intense. I felt your healing support!" he penned.

He said he was humbled and grateful that attention and focus from the police were enough to get Koji and Gustav back to safety. He believed the police were committed to bringing these "criminals and attempted murderers" to justice. 

He claimed he was appreciative of everything law enforcement continued to do on the case.

"All the dog videos and photos from my clients to keep my spirits up worked miracles. Seeing their faces light up when you said my name motivates me to keep pushing so I can play with them and see you again soon. I love you all! First responders and health care workers: you literally saved my life and helped me take newborn walks, I can’t thank you enough," he said thankfully.

Ryan then thanked his  family at Haüs and Lady Gaga.

He was thrilled that her "babies were back and her family was whole."

Ryan said the singer had shown him and his family so much support throughout this whole crisis. He claimed Gaga's support as a friend, despite your own traumatic loss from your kids, was unwavering. 

"I love you and thank you," Ryan told the singer.

Lady Gaga was reunited with her dogs after they were returned by a woman who was not believed to be connected to the crime.
