The man we all know as “Dog The Bounty Hunter” looks happier than ever.

Duane “Dog” Chapman has found love again after his beloved wife, Beth, passed away last summer. In a March interview with The Sun, he revealed that he had been dating his new girlfriend, Francie Frane, for a few months.

“It’s going really good,” he told the publication. “It’s a God relationship because it’s just like a miracle. It’s a miracle how we met and it’s a miracle how great we’re getting along.”

Francie lives in Colorado, where Dog has a home, and her late husband Bob used to do yard work for the Chapmans. One day, Dog called Bob to ask him to come over for some work and Francie had to return the call to let Dog know Bob had sadly passed away from cancer. This was just a bit before Beth’s death in June 2019.

They began to lean on each other, seeing as they were going through the exact same thing at the exact same time. Their friendship grew into a relationship and Dog’s feelings have become so strong, he says they will likely get married.

While speaking with The Sun, Dog dropped quite the bombshell:

“There will never be another Mrs. Dog but it looks like there will be a final Mrs. Chapman.”

Since the interview, he and Francie have been sharing photos together and fans have been loving seeing this side of Dog.


They are currently in Colorado together, spending time fishing and taking walks. She is even teaching him how to use a tractor.


In a recent Instagram post, Dog professed his love for Francie, saying, “I scream & Cry Beth where are you why did you leave me then I look up & see you Francie & the pain turns to a smile I LOVE YOU WOMAN !!


Francie definitely reciprocates his feelings and wants everyone to know it. In a post dated April 27, Francie took a photo of a handwritten journal entry of sorts.

The note read, “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have! So you cling to God & His word with all your might because it’s all you know to do.”Then one day, I looked up from the ashes, and there you stood. Wow, God!

She added an “I love you” to her caption on Instagram and tagged the bounty hunter.
