Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs have been found safe and unharmed after being stolen at gunpoint and their walker shot, police in Los Angeles have said.
The pop star offered a $500,000 reward for their return after her dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot in Hollywood on Wednesday.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
Koji and Gustav were handed in at the LAPD’s Olympic Community Police Station on Friday.
Lady Gaga’s third dog, Miss Asia, managed to escape the robbers.
Captain Jonathan Tippet, commanding officer of the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division, said that the “dogs have been located and are safe”.
It was not immediately clear how the women who dropped off the dogs came to have the animals, but she appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the crime, according to the Associated Press news agency.
Capt Tippet said the force would not be “providing any additional information at this time”.
The dogs have been “safely reunited with Lady Gaga representatives,” the LAPD said, adding there have been no arrests made.
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is in Rome where she is shooting Sir Ridley Scott’s film about the Gucci fashion dynasty.
In a post on Friday, she pleaded for the dogs’ return as “an act of kindness”.
She also praised her dog walker, adding: “I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family.
“You’re forever a hero.”
If you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same. I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.

Mr Fischer tried to fight the two robbers off and was shot by one of the men wielding a semi-automatic handgun, according to police.
