Chapman resounds the warning bell by saying, "I’m warning you in advance. May God have mercy on you when I get you, because I won’t."
Duane "Dog" Chapman gears up for his upcoming series Dog's Most Wanted and an exclusive trailer of the said series was released recently, reports PEOPLE. It obviously features the notable bounty hunter along with his wife Beth Chapman, who has been fighting the mighty battle against throat cancer for the second time. WGN's latest trailer for the series sets a grim tone as Chapman warns the ones who are on the run through a strong-worded message in this thirty-second video.
The clip begins with Chapman introducing himself, "Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman here." He continues by saying, "My wife, the love of my life, is fighting for her life. Instead of being at home helping her, I’m out here looking for you. I’m warning you in advance. May God have mercy on you when I get you because I won’t." Finally, Beth reinforces the seriousness of the message by adding, "You’ve been warned." The network seems to have taken a rather original approach for this season.
According to PEOPLE, this year Chapman will be accompanied by his elite team of professionals, who are also known as 'The Dirty Dozen'. This time around the bunch is coming together to track down the most wanted fugitives mentioned in Dog's bucket list. This thrilling new series will be marked down as the first unscripted show that has been aired on WGN America over the past five years. Apart from the exciting new adventure the duo's about to embark upon, they would also be quietly fighting a personal battle of cancer.
Dog's 51-year-old partner, Beth Chapman was diagnosed with second stage throat cancer in 2017. This condition was revealed through a letter she had written to her friend informing them about it. As reported by RadarOnline she wrote: As most of you know, I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected. She further expresses her shock, writing: I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost 50 years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words,'You have cancer.'
Finally, she mentions: After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer. I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses. Two months after this news surfaced, her husband posted a message on Facebook thanking everyone for their prayers and blessings. In addition to that, they revealed how Beth's operation was a success and how the affected part was completely removed.
Sadly enough, cancerous cells relapsed and she had to be rushed to the hospital last year. This happened right after the reality star was experiencing some difficulty while breathing. Post the operation the Dog told Us Weekly, "They got most of the throat cancer out. Her airway is clear now, but the doctors are afraid that it has spread. They are doing a biopsy scan to check if it has spread. I told them I need to know right away and they’re going to get me the results by tomorrow. Hopefully, it hasn’t spread. Last time it didn’t spread at all, so we’re hoping the same thing." But she had to be hospitalized once again in April during her trip to Hawaii.
During her speech at the Source Church in Bradenton, Florida on Mother's day, she mentioned a little about her health. Addressing churchgoers, she revealed how her diagnosis has been "the ultimate test of faith." She also added, "I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?' He’ll roll his eyes at me again because I know why — because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known."
After beginning her chemotherapy in January, the Dog the Bounty Hunter star intimated that she had, in fact, stopped going for it. "Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me. So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing," she said.
