Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for any information regarding the shooter and stolen dogs, according to People magazine. Anyone with information should email KojiandGustav@gmail.com, the representative told the outlet.
Lady Gaga adopted Gustav in 2016.
“I’m proud to announce we added a new member to the #JOANNE family,” the singer shared on Instagram at the time.
“I haven’t named him yet but I call him both cowpig and moopig in the meantime!”
The musician welcomed Koji to the family in 2015 with her then-fiancé Taylor Kinney.
