A French bulldog was snapped Wednesday night while walking with its owner on the West Side of Los Angeles, authorities said – the latest in a string of at times violent robberies targeting the popular breed, which can fetch a hefty price on the black market.

The woman who owned the dog told police she was walking the 8000 block of Cashio Street around 9:15 p.m. when a male suspect began pulling on the leash from behind, according to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department . The woman and man began to fight back, after which a second man pushed them to the ground and helped wrestle the dog away, police said.

According to authorities, one of the men pointed a pistol at a passer-by who tried to intervene. The two suspects then fled with the dog in a dark-colored van.

The dog was described as reverse brindle: blue and gray with a white chest.

French bulldogs have been caught in attacks, sometimes violent, in recent years. A 3-month-old French bulldog was abducted in a home robbery in Rosemead in July and nine French bulldog puppies were stolen from a home in Northridge in September.

Most famously, in February 2021, two of Lady Gaga’s French bulldogs were stolen in Hollywood after their dog walker was shot in the chest. A year ago, another dog was stolen at gunpoint not far from where the performer’s dogs were snapped.

Earlier this month, the man who shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker pleaded not to be charged with attempted murder and was sentenced to 21 years in prison.
