The renowned bounty hunter took to his Instagram in the early hours of today to remember Beth on her posthumous 54th birthday.
Dog the Bounty Hunter shared a black-and-white portrait of his late wife wearing a broad smile and her signature hoop earrings and, in the accompanying caption, wrote:
I miss Beth and celebrate her today on her birthday and know she’s with Jesus keeping an eye on us from above. Happy Birthday, Beth. We love you!
Fans in the comments section celebrated the matriarch of the Chapman family, wishing her a happy heavenly birthday and sharing fond memories they had of her.
Beth, who was married to Duane for over a decade, passed away in June 2019 after a lengthy battle with throat cancer.
Dog The Bounty Hunter’s New Marriage And Family Drama
Dog’s lovely tribute to his late wife comes a month after the reality star became a married man again! As The Blast previously covered, the television personality walked down the aisle with his fiancee Francie Frane.
Frane and Dog bonded over their shared pain of losing their longtime partners and, in the process of comforting each other, fell for one another. By May 2020, the bounty hunter popped the question.
The lovebirds tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Colorado, but their nuptials was not without intense family drama. His daughter, Bonnie, who didn’t attend the wedding, levied several strong accusations against him.
The 22-year-old claimed she wasn’t invited to the ceremony because she supported the BLM movement and labeled Dog as homophobic and racist. She also alleged that he cheated on Beth while she was alive.

Dog broke his silence on the matter, explaining that he wasn’t a racist and what led to the division in his family. It all happened when a leaked conversation between him and his son saw him use the N-word, leading to a production company dropping his show.
The 68-year-old shed light on the controversy, claiming he was given a pass to use the N-word during his prison stint in the ’70s and has continued to use the word ever since. He even compared himself to rapper Eminem and denied he was a racist.
Duane Chapman And Brian Laundrie
Despite the hassles with his daughter, Dog and Frane’s wedding went smoothly. After the nuptials, the A&E star wasted no time in returning to work.
He was involved in the infamous search for Brian Laundrie in the Gabby Petito murder case and got several huge leads about finding the suspected killer. However, Laundrie’s remains were found last week, putting an end to the manhunt.
