Duane "Dog" Chapman's fiancee, Francie Frane, has now apparently entered the bounty hunting business with him. Frane recently assisted Dog with the capture of Felix Chujoy, a drugs fugitive from Virginia.

According to, it's not clear yet how much bounty hunting Frane is going to do, but Chapman has posted pictures of her attending his bounty hunting meetings.

Frane and Chapman got engaged in May, about 10 months after his wife, Beth Chapman, died after a long battle with cancer. Beth and Dog both appeared in "Dog's Most Wanted," which also covered Beth's cancer fight.

Chujoy was indicted in May by a grand jury for allegedly making and distributing methamphetamine.

Chapman was searching for Chujoy in Albemarle County, Virginia, amid a pandemic, when many people are walking around wearing masks to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus.

But Dog has a way to figure it out.

"The way I recognize people is facial features, which includes eyes, face and all that.

Most of my fugitives right now are walking around with their face covered. Shades on, face covered and a hat. You'll never know it."

Chapman found Chujoy in Augusta County, Virginia, after only a couple days' search. He tracked him down at his last known address; Chujoy turned himself in and is being held without bond.

Dog tweeted about finding Chujoy, writing:

"Thank you to the people of the great state of Virginia. Your tips and leads helped towards the surrender of Felix Chujoy. When Wyatt Earp comes to town, the safest place for the criminal is to hide inside the jail.

As Glen Frey says 'The heat is on.' ”

A meet and greet event with Chapman was scheduled in Virginia, though it was later postponed due to the pandemic. Chapman said he hoped to come back there again, with a new show called "Dog Unleashed."

The cancellation of the meet and greet disappointed several fans, like @matluvscrt, who wrote to Dog saying:

"What happened to the meet and greet you said to keep an ey out for tomorrow in Virginia? I was so EXCITED to meet you and now it has been deleted like it isn't going to happen😭😭😭"

Since the cameras were rolling for parts of the Chujoy hunt, then perhaps we'll see more of that in "Dog Unleashed," whenever that arrives.
