Dog the Bounty Hunter ends show, promises new chapter

Thumbnail image for dogheadshot.jpg
Mr. Chapman.
The list of Colorado celebrities is short. John Elway. Don Cheadle. Jessica Biel. John Elway. Amy Adams. Judy Collins. John Elway. Tim Tebow didn't last a season as a Broncos starter; John Denver has been dead more than a decade, even if he keeps getting added to local halls of fame. And then there's the biggest dog of all: Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Dog got his start in the bounty-hunting business here in Denver, and his wife, Beth was an investigator who helped on several early Westword stories. But they went global when they became the stars of Dog the Bounty Hunter, a reality show on A&E in which they chased bad guys from their new home base in Hawaii around the world and through eight seasons.

But there will not be a ninth, at least not on A&E. The show was cancelled last week.

Mr. and Mrs. Dog released this statement on the end of the series:

Prior to A&E making a decision not to renew the series Dog the Bounty Hunter, the parties involved were unable to reach an agreement for the 9th season.

Dog and Beth stated, "This has been a great ride for 8 seasons and we would not be where we are today but for our loyal and dedicated fans. We are about to start a new chapter, and an announcement will be made sooner rather than later. You can't keep a good Dog down."


And you can't keep him in Colorado, either.

Number 7 still ranks as Denver's best celebrity. Read why in this 2012 John Elway Best of Denver post.

I've always enjoyed dtbh. I know they are rough around the edges from time to time but they have also come from rough backgrounds and for them to be as good as they are is a miracle. Doug went to jail beth come from 3 marriages full of abuse she also had a child at the age of 18 . So many are quick to judge but until you have walked in someone else's shoes keep your mouth shut oh and before you judge get the plank out of your own eye before you try and take a splinter out of someone's else's . They do catch criminals but they also try to give em good advice and try to reach them. How many times have you seen them recommend rehab before their prisoners are thrown into jail that speaks volumes to me that they do really care.

oh i almost forgot, they do have to confirm the arrest warrant before they go out and make a arrest.

what you don't know about bounty hunting laws is that they don't need a search warrant, but they do need a arrest warrant in order to bounty hunt. most bounty hunting laws have specific wording on what they can  and cannot do. but if the bounty hunter goes on a private company property, most of the time, they cannot go in guns blazing, they have to enlist the help of local law enforcement to make the arrest.

Yeah Fooken Right!

I'm glad he's off the air! He's quick to preach Jesus but then calls his son's lady a racist slur?????? He gets drunk and abuses his family but is a good crime fighter?????? He never even apologized? That guy is a real piece of crap and he fought crime to get PAID, just like most police do, this guy should have been off the air a long time ago!

..... and i'm willing to bet that the "Couldn't reach an agreement" statement means that A&E wouldnt PAY fake boobed beth what she wanted. I'll also bet the pussy-whipped dog had no say so in the matter & is now pissed off, but taking it out on his sons & daughters and kissing the mile wide ass of NO-class, street walker beth. what is it that she HAS on the dog? it must be something gigantic for him to even LIKE beth, let alone place her OVER his own family. I wont miss the show. I like REAL justice, and that is something i rarely see on ANY cop type tv show. I see it more in the movies, than in real life. Thats fn SAD for America! Just curious... were you aware that America jails MORE of her own citizens than any other country in the WORLD? 30% of ALL Americans are jailed by the time they are 24 years old. is that a FREE COUNTRY? GERMANY is more free than we are. We LEAD the world in most LEGAL citizens in prison. THATS fuckin SAD! we need true justice again like Josey Wales!

They are not even real COPS! They act like they are! Bogus! I cannot respect Dog, and especially Beth. she is so CLASSLESS! She is white trash with money. I show my daughter how NOT to act the few times we've watched it. & for a man who says hes  Christian, you also have to ACT like it on a public show. no one would see how he cold be a Christian, the way he talks and behaves. I cant say if he is or isnt, im not gonna judge whether hes a Christian or not, no one can..... but if he really is.... he needs to change his act in front of the camera. And Beth is just so crude id be ASHAMED of my kids if they acted like that. Or if they weighed that much, DRESSED like that. cmon! TAKE A course in CLASS Beth. beth is the poster lady of NO CLASS. how can they goto church after people see their show? Id be EMBARRASSED. I Especially cannot respect the Dog for Breaking and entering people's homes (im astounded they show them breaking that law on TV, then again, im astounded i see REAL COPS on all the reality cop shows violating people's rights on EVERY episode. Its SAD that Americans do not know their rights anymore. if they did, theyd SHUT UP when being arrested and bring all that stuff up in court. then HOPEFULLY the judge is honest and have to dismiss the case based on Constitutional violations. sadly i know a person who was violated and the judge was SHIT, didnt go by the law and prosecuted for driving while intoxicated on what?....DIABETES and BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS! Why? because the person prosecuted does NOT drink or do illegal drugs and they couldnt stand that. They actually changed the police report from "Pending Blood Alcohol level" to an entirely different reason. ALL these 'cop shows' are there to brainwash people into believing they have NO RIGHTS. I see it every show, every episode where they violate the Fourth amendment. if the people being arrested would just SHUT UP.... most would get off of the charges based on violations of BASIC constitutional rights. I dont like ANY cop type show when i see people who ONLY were arrested for drugs. I dont care how anyone thinks about drugs. it still is Unconstitutional for the gobmint to tell any citizen what they can and cannot place in their body. it should be up to the people to decide for themselves if they wish to ruin their lives or not. We already have laws in place for those who murder, steal, break and enter, armed robbery, or commit some crime against others (NO MATTER THE REASON or Motive for committing the crime). Put people in prison (AND KEEP THEM THERE) if they break THOSE laws. leave others out of it. So far, NO ANTI-DRUG law has stopped anyone from wrecking their lives by using dangerous drugs. but it HAS ruined a lot of people's lives with convictions of young people who are just starting out in life.... for the rest of their lives. NOW what are they supposed to do? They will go to jail for weed, and come out with more knowledge about how to be a better criminal, less likely to get caught, LESS likely to get a GREAT job and more likely to STAY involved in illegal activity. because who wants to work for walmart for the rest of their lives? Id rather shoot myself. Make the punishment fit the crime. make the severity of CHARGES fir the crime also. Do they? NOOoo. They want ALL people to have a felony so no one can own a gun, vote or get a decent job. Put fuckin child molesters and child porn lovers in jail... forever! Put cold blooded murderers in jail forever, put ppl who commit armed robbery in jail for 5 years (1st offense) and 15 yrs 2nd offense or even lifetime since they obviously didnt learn the first 5 years. Put car thieves and home invaders in jail for MM 10 years at a time. because thats shitty. but someone on the east coast goes to jail for weed? while west coast dwellers its legal? Something is wrong here. very wrong.

Dog always talks about family. However .... He and Beth have fought with just about ALL their family, and now they are no longer family. shall we say enemies? There was Travis then Duane Lee, then Lelend. before that the one legged young guy nephew , then Bobby Brown ..... and many more are no longer associated or family of the Dog and wife. This family thing seems to be a sick thing with this group. Did Dog or Beth do the family in? Throw a ball up and it must come down. Just like this show did. I believe it will never be again. Karma has a way with us all.

getting too hard to chase fugitives with that fat belly.  why does he leave his shirt unbuttoned so low, does he think that blob of fat looks good.  and how do you run after  a fugitive with cowboy boots on?  answer  you don't, dog doesn't catch any fugitives Leland and Dwayne do.  Now do a show about Leland, one of the dreamiest men on tv, he should be on cover of romance novels.   now i'd be a huge fan of a show featuring LELAND as the star.  And beth those sise tripple G's torpedo tata's look hideous and you dress like a hooker to try to show them off?  god you must embarrass your kids with those ugly implants, whatever doctor pumped that much saline into your boobies should be arrested, how do you keep from falling over?  and u chase fugitives in high heels?  haha, good luck you guys got Leland and Dwayne Lee or you would never catch anyone.   HEY BOY THIS IS THE DOG, YOU BETTER RUN LIKE HELL CUZ I'M GONNA GET YOU BOY!  WHAT A JOKE.  Then he has prayer time but when he chases fugitives he cusses like a sailor.  yeah, cancel this dribble.

Hey, I watched the shows. I like the location shots in Colorado & Hawaii. I know both states pretty well so it was fun.

I hope they come back, I would like to see a few more women helping the Dog, however the Dog needs to cap the weight of his helpers at about 130Lbs it's a show business thing.

I think the language and bad comments about Dog and his family are brought about by people who have no respect for anyone and if you want to make comments that is your right but whatever is eating at you to say such bad things maybe you should get some help yourself, I think dog is a great show and has influenced alot of lives, even mine, love ya dog and family...

I can not believe some of the posts & the language. What is your problem? Just say you don't like the show you don't have to use that kind of language to get your point across about how you feel. If someone has to be so angry just get a life. You need to learn respect because it clearly shows you were never taught any. If you don't like the show just don't watch it but don't put people down that do. I'm sure you are using the language to shock people. I'm not shocked just sad that you can't use better language to get your point across. You are a very sad person

when you break the law you have m ade it clear that you care nothing about your rights and as far as breaking in when you have an arrest warrant and the other person won't comply or run you use whatever means necessary to apprehend them .

bruceusa2086
bruceusa2086

 bounty hunters are not real cops, which is correct, but they can legally arrest somebody if that person has a confirmed warrant out for his/her's arrest if that person jumps bail. they are bail bondsmen as well. they can use any means neccessary to apprehend fugitives, as long as they comply with state and bounty hunting laws,and they turn over the fugitives to the county jail. remember, he is a bail bondsman as well as a bounty hunter even though he is a convicted murderer.

You think someone should get hurt because you don't like them?  What if everyone else thought "Glenn66martin" should get hurt because he can't write above a 4th-grade level?

funny how the ones using the profnaity think its ok for them but they are so quick to judge dtbh and his wife . No I don't agree with the profanity they use but they do try and do a good thing . Everyone seems to forget that . They threw a block party where the proceeds went to a childrens home they also built an addition for a family that werre adopting two kids . Oh and there was a girl wanting to commit suicide beth gave her her twitter account and she told the girl to keep in touch and that she would be checking on her from time to time. Not many celebrities will do that.
