Family and friends of Dog’s are worried about his health. One of his children, Bonnie, wished her father well on social media, as well as expressed her love for her famous father.
On top of Beth’s passing, he was also dealt a blow when the family’s Colorado store was burglarized, with various personal items of Beth’s stolen. It was rumored to be an inside job, making the theft even more troubling.
There is no question that Duane “Dog” Chapman has been under a lot of pressure and stress the past few months. Anyone who has endured the loss Dog has suffered would be struggling.
It is heartbreaking to learn all the stress has taken such a toll on his heath. Hopefully, Dog can get the rest and relaxation that he needs to focus on his health after this weekend’s care.
