Lady Gaga is struggling as the drama surrounding her stolen dogs and injured dog walker plays out on the other side of the world. The 34-year-old singer-actress is currently in Italy preparing to film the movie Gucci, but in Los Angeles, her dog walker and friend, Ryan Fischer, was shot and hospitalized on Wednesday evening and two of her dogs -- Gustav and Koji -- have been kidnapped.
A source tells ET that "Lady Gaga is beside herself about this situation. Ryan is not only her dog walker, but also her friend. She is horrified that this happened."
Gaga's third dog, Asia, managed to escape and was rescued by police, but her other two dogs are still missing and the shooter remains at large. She has offered a $500,000 reward.
"Her dogs are her babies and she is completely devastated and sickened by this," the source continues. "She feels somewhat helpless because she is far away in Italy, but is doing everything she can and praying for Ryan, Koji and Gustav."
The LAPD tells ET that Fischer was in "critical condition" when transported to the hospital. A source tells ET that he is currently in the hospital and is recovering.
On Friday, Fischer's family said in a statement that he is expected to make a full recovery.
"As you know, our beloved Ryan was the victim of a horrible, violent crime on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles," the statement reads. "Thankfully, Ryan is receiving extraordinary care in the hospital right now and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery. We cannot possibly say enough to thank all of the first responders, nurses and doctors who have worked so tirelessly to care for Ryan."
"Of course, we also want to thank Lady Gaga who has shown nothing but non-stop love and concern for Ryan and our family right from the outset," the statement continues. "Ryan loves Gustavo and Koji as much as Lady Gaga does; so we join in her plea for their safe return. Thank you very much for your interest and support. At this time we kindly ask that you respect our family's privacy as we are focused on Ryan's recovery."
