Duane “Dog” Chapman, the reality TV star known for his show on bounty hunting, was hospitalized over the weekend in Colorado for a possible heart attack, reports TMZ.

He is currently under a doctor’s care, his representative tweeted.

"I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably. Thank you for all of your well wishes- keep 'em coming,” the representative posted.

Doctors are performing tests to determine the nature of the problem and are attempting to figure out whether he will need corrective surgery, according to TMZ.

Chapman’s wife, Beth Chapman, died in June from complications with throat cancer. The bounty hunter in August said he and his kids are struggling to deal with the loss and some of his kids are “barely making it.”

"Each one copes differently, there is a few that [are] really barely making it," Duane said during an interview with People magazine. "We don't know what to do. We haven't read, we weren't prepared."

Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017 and underwent successful surgery that same year, but the cancer later returned. She began aggressive chemotherapy but later decided to discontinue the treatment and seek out alternative therapies. In June she was rushed to a Honolulu hospital and put into a medically induced coma, where she died on June 26 at the age of 51.
