Duane "Dog" Chapman's wife, Beth Chapman, is in a medically induced coma, her husband has confirmed on Facebook.
On Sunday (June 23), the Chapman family released a statement on social media informing followers that Beth, the bail bondswoman who starred alongside Dog on the 2004 reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter until it went off-air in 2012, had been admitted to the intensive care unit at Honolulu's Queen's Medical Center. "Please say your prayers for Beth right now," Dog wrote initially on Facebook this morning, followed by an article detailing her dire condition.
Beth, who was diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017, underwent a successful procedure for her condition that same year. However, the cancer came back and prompted the reality star to undergo another surgery in November to have a tumor removed from her throat. She was later hospitalized back in April due to an "accumulation of fluid in her lungs," the pair explained, which caused for an emergency operation to relieve pressure.
No further details of Beth's condition are available at this time. The latest statement came from Dog in a tweet asking for more prayers, whereas Beth last tweeted Saturday (June 23). The unfortunate news comes weeks after it was announced that Dog and Beth's new show, Dog's Most Wanted, would be coming to the WGN America network sometime soon.
