Dog The Bounty Hunter was reportedly rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart emergency this weekend. The 66-year-old reality star was apparently at his home in Colorado when he started to experience chest pain. 

Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, might have had a heart attack. Doctors are reportedly still conducting tests to figure out just what happened to Dog. 

A rep for Dog said in a statement, “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 health crisis comes a few months after Dog’s wife Beth passed away after a battle with cancer. Beth died in June at the age of 51. 

Dog explained that his health was suffering in the aftermath of her passing. In July, he said he lost 17 pounds in the first two weeks after she died, having completely lost his appetite. 

“I can’t eat. Two bites, I’m full. I got to force feed myself like I force fed her,” he explained at the time. “Chewing ice helps, and I’ve lost 17 pounds in about two weeks.”
