Duane “Dog” Chapman's life over the last year has been a roller coaster. He went from the low of losing his wife, Beth Chapman, to the high of starting a new show called "Dog’s Most Wanted." 

The new show aired on September 4, while passed away in June. Many fans felt that Dog finally going out was a sign that he was slowly learning to live again without Beth. Besides, Beth, Rainy and David, Duane also has many other members in his team.
