Who is Dog the Bounty Hunter?

Duane Chapman aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, 67, is an American reality TV personality best known for his successful capture of Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico in 2003.

He was born on February 2, 1953 in Denver, Colorado.

Dog was given his own series, Dog the Bounty Hunter, the following year on A&E.

The series follows Dog and his associates as they hunt for fugitives on the run.

After Dog the Bounty Hunter ended, he appeared in Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, alongside his late wife and business partner, Beth Chapman.

About eleven months following his wife's death, Dog was engaged to Francie Frane.


Frane, 51, is a rancher from Colorado. She met Dog after he reached out to Francie's husband Bob to do some work at his home.

Sadly, Francie had to break the news to Dog that Bob had passed several months before Beth.

Grief brought the pair closer, and they began dating soon after.

Dog told the Sun that he wants to have the "biggest wedding there's ever been" open to all his fans, in what he says will be "one hell of a party."

They moved in together earlier this year and kept their romance a secret, only revealing it to the public in March.

In May, Dog revealed he and Francie were engaged.

Many people criticized them for getting together so soon after Beth died, but his family sprung to his defense.
