Duane ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter‘ Chapman and his wife Francie Frane are expanding their family as they welcome an adorable Christmas puppy to the clan.

Chapman rose to fame on A&E’s reality series, Dog The Bounty Hunter. For eight seasons, Duane and his late wife, Beth, starred in the show and went on to have many spin-off series.

Duane has taken a break from reality TV since 2019, the year of his wife Beth Chapman’s death – they were together 13 years. He got re-married to Francie two years after Beth’s tragic passing as they both connected over losing a partner.

Now, it appears the duo has an addition to their family, an adorable furry friend.

However, other fans in the comments section couldn’t get over the fact that Chapman remarried after his wife passed away. Some reminded the reality star that he promised Beth on the show that he would never remarry following her tragic death.
