On Tuesday evening, Beth Chapman took to Instagram to post that she had lost her pet dog. The reality star shared the sad news while still struggling with her cancer battle.


Chapman shared about the pet and the relationship they had. She also included a photo of the canine.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Beth Chapman revealed that she recently lost her pet dog LBJ. The reality star wrote:

“Lost my precious LBJ he was such a good boy the best hiking buddy anyone could ever have. He just never fully recovered from his horrendous surgery .. Your Delilah awaits you on the rainbow bridge be free sweet baby.”


Her fans were quick to respond with messages of support to the star who is currently battling a cancer diagnosis. Others shared their own stories about losing their pets.

This loss comes at a time when Chapman was recently hospitalized and underwent emergency surgery to remove a mass. Her cancer has been considered incurable.


The reality star has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments to fight of the disease. On social media, she regularly shares photos of her enjoying life at events and family gatherings.


Fans of Chapman and her husband Duane “Dog” know that the pair values their animal family members. The couple regularly features their pet cat Plum on Instagram.


The reality stars have also posted images of their macaw named Ozzy plus a number of different dogs. Chapman referred to Delilah in her post, and that happens to be one of their many dogs.


The dog passed away in September 2017. The star’s battle with throat cancer has led her to be a great inspiration to her fans and followers.

Last Tuesday, Chapman shared a picture of herself on Instagram with the hashtags #cancersucks, #stayhumblepray and #"itsonlyhair. In the image, she’s seen smiling as she shows off her long blond hair.

The star might be hinting at the inevitable hair loss that she will encounter as she carries on with the treatment.
