Nearly two years after Beth Chapman’s death, “Dog the Bounty Hunter” family members suffer yet another loss. Lola, Beth’s canine companion, has recently passed away. The familymade the announcement on Instagram. A few of them shared a photo of the beloved dog, along with heartfelt words.

“Promise mommy @mrsdog4real will come and take you home with her. I love you forever,” wrote Cecily.

Another one of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Duane Chapman’s daughters, Lyssa, also mentioned Lola’s death on Instagram. She posted several pictures of the family dog, along with a few captions. They read, “Rest in love J-Lola” and included the hashtag “#MakerofKings.”

Lola was most remembered for being Beth’s loyal sidekick. The dedicated pup stood by her bedside when she fell ill.

In April 2019, Pop Culture reported on the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star being hospitalized. She had a build-up of fluid in her lungs. As a result, Beth had to undergo an emergency procedure.

However, after the hospitalization, she shared a post-op photo on Twitter of both her and Lola. She added a caption saying, “Mama and Lola so much love for this girl.”

Soon after, Beth lost her battle with throat cancer and passed away at 51 years old on June 26, 2019.

In the moments before her death, Beth was rushed to Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii. Medical professionals placed her in a medically induced coma. However, it was too late and the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star sadly passed away.
