Dog the Bounty Hunter marries Francie Frane amid family drama

Dog the Bounty Hunter and Francie Frane are officially husband and wife.

Dog and his fiancée married Thursday evening in an “emotional and intimate” ceremony in Colorado Springs surrounded by close friends and family amid ongoing drama with his daughter Bonnie.

“We appreciate the support and well-wishes as we begin our life together,” Dog told Page Six in a statement on Friday.

The former A&E reality star was previously married to Beth Chapman for 13 years up until her death in June 2019 at age 51 after a lengthy battle with throat cancer.

Frane’s husband also passed away after a cancer battle just six months before Beth.

The newlyweds got engaged in May 2020 — just 10 months after Beth’s death and a failed proposal to now-ex Moon Angell. Dog popped the question at their Colorado home.

“I wasn’t expecting it at all,” Frane told The Sun of the proposal. “I think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back, he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit.”

“So when I came in I was like, ‘Wow, this is awesome.’ Then he said, ‘Come in, sit down because I need to talk to you.’ So I put all the food in the kitchen and I came in and he said, ‘I know that God brought you into my life and I don’t want to spend one moment of it without you.’”

Despite the happy news, Dog is still in a very public feud with Bonnie, who believes her father is homophobic and racist.

“I have expressed time and time again my ever-growing disappointment in my father’s progression into his old racist ways,” Bonnie shared in a post. “I had forgiven my father after my mother’s death for countless actions that I shouldn’t have.”

Dog, however, has maintained that he’s not racist and claimed he was given a “pass” by his black “brothers” in prison to say the N-word.

“I thought I had a pass in the black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem,” he said in an interview published this week.
