Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman under doctor’s care after heart-related emergency

Duane "Dog" Chapman, star of WGN America's Dog's Most Wanted, is being monitored after a medical incident over the weekend, a representative for the TV star tells CNN.

A spokesperson told the Mirror: "I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably".

In December, Dog - whose real name is Duane Chapman - revealed Beth's cancer had returned and explained it had become "incurable".

Duane "Dog The Bounty Hunter" Chapman was hospitalized over the weekend of September 14 after suffering a "heart emergency" that could require surgery, TMZ reports.

The news outlet claims that the man was taken to the hospital after experiencing chest pain while in his own home. The show aired from 2004 until 2012, followed by its first spin-off, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, which aired on CMT for three seasons.

Last month, his store was burglarized and some of his wife's personal items were stolen, along with thousands of dollars in clothing. "I depended on her for so much".

ET spoke with Chapman in July, shortly after his wife's memorial, where he opened up about how hard it was to get back to his routine without the love of his life.

Speaking further of his loss, Duane added: "It's bad, the most awful time in someone's life. I got to force feed myself like I force fed her", he admitted.

"She goes, 'All it'll do is keep me alive six months longer and I'm not going to do that because I want to be by your side.' " he recalled. "I never felt like this".
