Following Dog the Bounty Hunter’s super touching tribute to his late wife, Beth Chapman, the reality star’s daughter Lyssa took to her Twitter account to wish her late stepmother a happy birthday. 

“Happy Heavenly Birthday @MrsdogC,” Dog’s daughter shared in the tweet, which featured some super sweet snaps of Beth with her family. 

Beth Chapman was notably married to Dog in 2006. She appeared alongside the famous bounty hunter in various TV shows, including Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and Dog’s Most Wanted. Beth was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017 and initially went into remission. But the cancer ended up spreading throughout her body. She passed away from cancer on June 26, 2019, from cancer complications. 

Beth’s children are Bonnie Chapman, Cecily Chapman, Dominic Davis, and Garry Chapman. 

Dog the Bounty Hunter Opens Up About His Late Wife’s Passing

Eight months after Beth Chapman passed away from cancer, Dog the Bounty Hunter spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how he was mourning his late wife. “Oh, I miss her. Eight months, that’s the worst part. It seems like yesterday. And they say, ‘Time heals all wounds.’ No, it doesn’t.”

The reality TV star also stated that he missed Beth’s comments, touch, and smell. “[I miss] her encouragement. [Beth’s], ‘I am going to hire a real bounty hunter if you don’t catch this guy.’ Her teasing me. Her [saying], ‘We say the blessing before we eat.’”

Dog then admitted that Beth was his everything and he absolutely hated admitting that. “Because I am such a macho, macho man. But she was the glue that held my family together. So now I got to redo it and restaple everybody. And we are all kind of brawling right now.”

Dog goes on to explain that his daughters would not want to date anyone too soon after their mother’s passing. He did state at the time that he is very lonesome and it was almost time to start looking for a partner. “I can maybe go out with a girl and eat and date a little. If that’s a date? Where, how, do you date today? I’ve forgotten!”

Dog Marries New Wife Francie Frane

However, since that interview in 2020, Dog the Bounty Hunter has gone on to date, propose and marry his current wife, Francie Frane. The couple was married at the beginning of September at The Pinery At The Hill, a luxury resort in Colorado Springs. The special event was also intimate, with only 100 of the couple’s closest friends and family.

Dog the Bounty Hunter and Francie met six months after Dog the Bounty Hunter’s fifth wife, Beth, passed away from throat cancer. Frane’s previous husband, Robert, died in December 2018.
