You probably remember the hit A&E show Dog the Bounty Hunter and its cast of colorful characters from 2004. One of the most memorable was Duane "Dog" Chapman's wife Beth, who has gotten attention from fans since the show went off the air due to her weight loss. While we no longer can enjoy catching the family on the small screen, today, we can keep up with our favorite on Instagram and other social media sites!
Today, Beth works as the president of the National Bail Bonds Association, according to her Facebook. She and her husband work as lobbyists for the bail bond industry. This year hasn't been easy for Beth, and earlier in 2017, she revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer.

Despite Beth's battle, her work with the National Bail Bonds Association hasn't slowed down in the slightest. Just last year, Beth talked with In Touch exclusively about the ending of their show. “Our industry is under attack,” she explained. “There are bail reform movements springing up across the country that would end the cash bail systems. This would be a disaster.” Beth and Dog worked against the changes in the bail system, which sought to get rid of the cash bail system altogether.

“The bail industry provides a service to the government and helps ensure the public’s safety,” she said. “Removing the bail system would have a deleterious effect on the criminal justice system. It is imperative that our association, under strong leadership, fight every attempt by these social justice lackeys to remove cash bail when their only goal is to make it easier for the bad guys to get out of jail.”
But even though her days on reality TV are over — for now — Beth still remained in the spotlight and has shared even the most intimate details of her cancer battle with her fans. “To be certain, I’ve stared down the devil more than once in my life but I’ve never faced a real life or death decision. My life has never been easy, and I surely don’t expect it to start now,” she recently wrote. “Still, I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let my cancer beat me.”
