Dog the Bounty Hunter is a reality television show on A&E which chronicles Duane "Dog" Chapman's adventures as a fugitive recovery agent, or bounty hunter. With a few exceptions, the show takes place in Hawaii or Dog's home state of Colorado. After eight seasons, on May 21, 2012 A&E cancelled the series. Duane "Dog" Chapman is joined by his business partner and wife, Beth Chapman; his grown sons Duane Lee Chapman, II and Leland Chapman, and his "brother," Tim "Youngblood" Chapman (despite having the same last name, Chapman and Tim are not biologically related). In Season 2, Dog's teenage daughter, "Baby" Lyssa Chapman returns home and becomes a member of the bounty-hunting team. Justin Bihag (son of longtime family friend Moon Bihag) also helps out during Season 1 and occasionally later. The program spun off from Chapman's appearance on the show Take This Job, a program about people with unusual occupations.
