Dog the Bounty Hunter is a newly married guy. He tied the knot with his sixth wife Francie Frane on September 2 in Colorado Springs at the Pinery at the Hill resort. The couple arrived in Florida for their honeymoon after Francie expressed that she wished to visit the state she was born in. “I asked her before we got married, ‘Where would you like to go?’ And she said, ‘To Florida to put my feet in the sand, and my ocean,’” the 68-year-old celebrity bounty hunter told the Sun. The reality star was at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort near Naples when his fans started to urge him to take up the case. 

The reality star has received a number of negative comments after he joined the search for Brian Laundrie. Chapman was seen neck-deep in swamp water in one of the videos taken near Fort De Soto Park in North Port, while on a mission to search for Gabby Petito's fugitive boyfriend. The video was posted on October 3 and saw him heading into the thick bush and floating vegetation which people dubbed to be a "gimmick" and many said, "he's only doing this for publicity." Dog wants Brian Laundrie to be found soon so he can resume his honeymoon. “So one of the last reasons that I want to catch him — so I could continue my honeymoon. I hope that’s not any disrespect to anybody involved in this case because it’s terrible, but that’s where we stand now, in our honeymooning,” he told the Sun.

Who is Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife Francie Frane?

Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife Francie is a former rancher and hunter who lives in Colorado where the former owns a home. She was married previously and has two sons from that relationship. Dog was previously married to Beth who died in 2019 making him a widower. At the time, he had vowed to never marry again. "I probably will [date], and I told [Beth] that," he said. "What deal we said is I will never take 'Beth' off my chest, [where] I have her name.. And I will never get married."

Dog and Francie met each other while the former was looking for her then-husband Bob, an excavator because he needed some yard work done. Bob had died six months before Beth. Both Dog and Francie discovered they were grieving their departed spouses and that's what helped them connect. Francie refused Dog's advances initially and only gave in on a condition that he'd go to church with her for which he agreed. Their first date was at the church and they both held hands where the reality star reportedly said, "Gotcha."

Speaking of his relationship with the Sun in 2020, Dog said, “It’s going really good. It’s a God relationship because it’s just like a miracle. It’s a miracle how we met and it’s a miracle how great we’re getting along…..both of us are allowed to talk about our spouses that are in Heaven – it’s not like we’re afraid to mention it or anything like that.”
