Most fans know bounty hunter Duane Chapman as Dog thanks to his reality show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” on A&E.
That show delves into the excitement and intrigue involved with chasing down dangerous criminals and bringing them in for a significant monetary reward.
Despite some controversy involving a leaked audio tape featuring discriminatory language, Dog has remained popular with many, and he and his wife Beth are passionate about bringing runaway lawbreakers to justice.
However, the two of them agree that the time has come to move on from this aspect of their lives. Beth has decided to run for the office of president of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States.
She feels that the bail bond industry is in danger, and she wants to do her part to ensure that it keeps going long into the future. Dog wants to put his energy into supporting his wife and helping her to achieve this dream.
Both of them want to fight against out-of-control regulations and laws that hurt the bail bond system.
While those who love the series will be sorry to see it go, Dog promises that he won’t really be going away. He and Beth will stay in the public eye, just in a different way.
In the meantime, those who relish the thrill of watching him chase down fugitives can always comfort themselves with older episodes. After 12 seasons on the air, there are plenty of reruns to keep them busy for a long time.
