“This isn’t just a wedding ceremony, it’s going to be a marriage,” Dog told UsWeekly ahead of the wedding. “I knew Francie was the one almost straight away. And we’re both looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together.”
The 68-year-old reality TV star wed Frane a little over two years after the passing of his wife Beth Chapman, and family drama shrouded the nuptials.
Last month, Dog’s daughters Cecily and Bonnie Chapman went public when their father didn’t invite them to his wedding. And Bonnie accused Dog the Bounty Hunter of racism and infidelity. But despite all the turmoil, Dog walked down the aisle and tied the knot for the sixth time.
On September 3rd, TMZ got their hands on some pictures of the big day, and they shared them on Twitter.

The lavish ceremony and reception took place at The Pinery At The Hill. In one photo, we can see Duane Chapman in his signature sunglasses taking a smoke break on a balcony. In the remaining pictures, Dog the Bounty Hunter poses with friends and family and kisses his new bride.
After saying “I do,” Dog told E! News that he and Francie “are thrilled to be husband and wife.” And they “appreciate all the prayers and well-wishes.”
Dog the Bounty Hunter Prepares for New Show
New beginnings abound for Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman. On September 2nd, he put a ring on Francie Frane’s finger, and it also looks like he may have a new show in the works.
On August 25th, Chapman dropped an Instagram post that announced his new show. In the series called Beware of Dog, Chapman will work alongside his good friend Bobby Brown.
“Yes, One of my best friends Bobby Brown will be part of My new show Beware Of Dog, Coming Soon !!!!” he wrote in the caption.
This will be Dog the Bounty Hunter’s second try at a new series since his original show ended in 2012. Chapman was previously working on a reality show named Dog Unleashed for Unleashed TV. According to Deadline, the canceled series was going to follow Dog as he tracked down “the worst of criminal offenders America has to offer.” But that project stopped dead in its tracks when the network accused him of violating his contract by reportedly using racist and homophobic language.
