Dog the Bounty Hunter Is Engaged: ‘God Brought Us Together’

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Dog the Bounty Hunter’s fiancée, Francie Frane, credits God for bringing the pair together, just months after their spouses died.

“We know that God brought us together and that’s why we don’t believe that it’s too soon,” said Frane.

Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, lost his wife, Beth Chapman, in June 2019 to throat cancer. Frane lost her husband, Bob, six months prior to Beth’s death.

The newly engaged couple doesn’t seem to be worried about the naysayers who say their engagement happened too quickly.

Frane said, “We both have done our share of screaming and crying and asking why. Then for us to come together the way that we did and build this friendship because of what we’ve been through, that turned into a love story.”

The theme of God brining the two together has been consistent.

Francie recalled the words Chapman declared when he proposed, “’I know that God brought you into my life and I don’t want to spend one moment of it without you.’”

Frane said in April 2020 on Instagram, “Neither one of us can replace what we had with Bob & Beth and we don’t want to…. What we do know is that God has brought two people who have walked a treacherous road together and shown us LOVE is possible again ❤️ And as Wonderful, Loving and Kind as You all think Dog is, HE IS & MORE !! I LOVE YOU DUANE LEE.”

Chapman’s claim to fame came with his widely-popular reality show DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER.

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER premiered on A&E in 2004 and ran for eight seasons until 2012. Countless fans have stood by Chapman through thick and thin.

During this new season of life, Chapman said, “You know [Francie and I] go to Walgreens, Walmart, Starbucks and every single fan has been like ‘… you guys look good together’ or ‘Boy Dog you should keep with her, with her strength and her Christianity, she will stand by you.’”
