The two dogs, stolen in an armed robbery, have been “reunited” with the singer’s representatives, police said.
Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot by two men who abducted the dogs in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on Wednesday.
He is in hospital, and his family said that he was expected to make a full recovery on Friday.
Details of how the dogs were recovered are unclear. The Associated Press said a woman had brought them to the Olympic Community Police Station in LA, and the singer’s representatives had confirmed they were hers. The woman appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the robbery, a police spokesman said.
Lady Gaga had offered $500,000 (£359,000) for their safe return, but it is not clear if the reward has been claimed.
The star – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta – is currently in Rome working on a new Ridley Scott film, Gucci. In her first public reaction to the attack, Gaga tweeted on Friday: “My heart is sick.”
“I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness. I will pay $500,000 for their safe return.”
And in another Twitter post, the singer wrote: “I continue to love you, Ryan Fischer; you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”
Gaga is exceptionally protective of her dogs, who have accompanied her to the American Music Awards and her 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show.
