Dog The Bounty Hunter vows not to remarry following death of wife Beth at 51: ‘There will never be another Mrs. Dog’
Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman says he’s taken his last walk to the altar.
The reality TV personality, 66, said he would not remarry in the wake of his wife Beth Chapman’s death at 51 earlier this summer, following her valiant two-year fight against throat and lung cancer.
‘There will never be another Mrs. Dog,’ he told US Wednesday, referring back to a promise he and Beth made one another prior to her June 26 passing at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu.
Announcement: Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman, 66, said he would not remarry in the wake of his wife Beth Chapman’s death at 51 earlier this summer following her valiant two-year fight against throat and lung cancer
‘We both said, “If I die, you can have a man – 10 [men], I don’t care. But don’t marry one,’ he said. ‘And she said, “Don’t take my name off your chest, Dog. Do not get married.”‘
Dog, who said he doesn’t ‘like the word widower,’ told the outlet that he’s had moments where he still thinks Beth is alive.
‘I still put the pillows in the middle of the bed,’ he said. ‘This morning I thought she was still there.’
Dog said he’s open to date again, as he has ‘to have the companionship,’ has ‘never been single,’ and ‘doesn’t ‘do single s***.’

He was seen in Los Angeles August 11 having dinner with a woman, an outing his daughter Bonnie Chapman later said on social media was business-related.
Dog told the outlet that Bonnie is on board with the sentiment he should never remarry, as its what her mother Beth would have wanted.
‘She’s me in her heart, but her mother in her words,’ the TV star explained. ‘She’s like the girl of the family so she says I can’t even date. I tease her right now: “Do not worry, Daddy’s not getting married. You have Daddy’s word of honor.”‘
On the day Beth died, Dog took to Twitter, writing: ‘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 stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.’
The family’s new show, Dog’s Most Wanted, debuts Wednesday, September 4 at 9/8c on WGN.
