Last year was the Chinese calendar\'s Year of the Dog – and Duane "Dog" Chapman – the world\'s most famous bounty hunter - had enough drama to last him two lifetimes. Now, staring adversity in the face with his own freedom hanging in the balance, Dog is coming back with a vengeance to hunt down fugitives with his wife Beth and fearless Posse.

A&E is reporting that the tables may have turned on "Dog" Chapman.
As reported, on July 30th, the First Criminal Court in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico dismissed all criminal charges pending against Dog, Tim and Leland Chapman on the grounds that the statute of limitations had expired.
However, A&E has learned that Dog and his Posse are not in the clear quite yet. Although the cancellation of the warrant still stands, an appeal was filed by the prosecution to overturn the lower court’s decision.
A&E has been told that in Mexico, rulings against the prosecution are generally appealed as a matter of principle.
In the meantime, A&E posts that their thoughts and best wishes are with the Chapman family as they await the outcome of the appeal which could take many months.
