The Tragic Real-Life Story Of Dog The Bounty Hunter

Duane Lee “Dog” Chapman and his wife, Beth Chapman, skyrocketed to fame in 2004 when their exploits of tracking fugitives and bail-jumpers were chronicled on the A&E reality series, Dog the Bounty Hunter.

With his long blond hair, signature wraparound shades, and iconoclastic look, Duane Chapman proved to be a standout in the world of television, and the show became such a huge hit that it furthered the network’s mission to shift brands from its “Arts & Entertainment” origins to more populist programming, per Variety.
