Dog the Bounty Hunter's new fiancee has officially joined the family business... which means Beth has essentially been replaced.
Read on to find out about her new role in Dog's life...
Dog the Bounty Hunter has had a turbulent couple of years.Only last year, his long-term wife, Beth, passed away from throat cancer and, ever since, he has been embroiled in controversy regarding his love life.
It all started in 1986.Beth was only nineteen years old when she met Dog. The situation was difficult as Dog was already married, but this didn’t stop the pair from striking up an on-off relationship.
They called it quits when Beth married Keith Barmore...But it didn't last for Beth and Keith and, after a couple of years, they decided a divorce would be best for both of them.
Dog's marriage didn't last either...So the two former lovers reunited in 1995, before getting married in 2006.
The couple went on to have 2 children, and they stayed together ever since.And then Dog the Bounty Hunter, the TV show that propelled them to superstardom, came along. The show was based on the life and experiences of Duane, who bounty hunts for a living.
The show became a hit after people fell in love with the couple.It was so popular that they ended up getting their very own spin-off show: Dog & Beth: On The Hunt.
Both of them worked hard to earn their celebrity statuses.
Their constant bickering was comedy gold.A lot of other married couples felt as though they could relate to them, which only helped them grow in popularity.
Things seemed to be going well for them, but then Beth shared some tragic news.
She announced that she had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. Despite being told that she was free of the disease only 3 months later, the cancer returned in 2018. This lead to Beth having to undergo an emergency operation to remove a mass on her throat.

Even though the operation was a success, there was more bad news for Beth.
Beth was in love with her job, so vowed to spend her final days "on the hunt."Somehow, the family managed to come to terms with this tragedy, and Beth wanted nothing more than to spend her last days doing what she did best on America’s Most Wanted.
But, unfortunately, Beth's health continued to deteriorate...After resting at home in recovery from further treatment, Beth was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Hawaii after having difficulty breathing. According to reports, she began fighting against the help of doctors and it was understood that she was attempting to remove the tubes that were in place to feed her medication and fluids.
She wasn't "reacting well" to treatment.Beth had to be given oxygen in order to breathe when she arrived at the ER. According to TMZ, medics first put her under mild sedation but she quickly fell into a full medically-induced coma.
Sadly, Beth passed away in her home in Hawaii on the 26th of June, 2019.
Her husband broke the news that everyone was dreading in a tweet that ended: "See you on the other side."
It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the st… https://t.co/csllvQQA8P— Duane Dog Chapman (@Duane Dog Chapman)1561564480.0
