THE YOUNGEST pup of Dog the Bounty Hunter, Garry Chapman, scared fans after he was briefly hospitalized.
Dog and his fiancee Francie Frane recently opened up about the scary accident.
Let’s find out more about Garry Chapman.
Who is Garry Chapman?
Garry Lee Chapman, 19, is the youngest son of Duane Chapman or “Dog” and Beth Chapman.
Garry – born on February 7, 2001, in Hawaii – had stayed out of the public eye and did not appear on his family’s TV series Dog the Bounty Hunter.
The 19-year-old pup currently lives in Colorado.
In 2019, Garry’s mother Beth Chapman passed away from throat and lung cancer.
Why was Gary Chapman in the hospital?
Garry ended up in the emergency room with a head injury after he “wrecked” a four-wheeler in June.
In a side-by-side interview, Dog and his fiance Francie Frane opened up about the scary accident and how her children are helping Garry to heal.
Dog revealed that Garry had just gotten out of the hospital the morning of the interview after crashing his four-wheeler the day prior.
Francie explained that her son Greg and his wife are “really close with Garry” and were the ones who took him to the hospital.
She said they were also the ones to take him back home after Garry, a certified scuba instructor, was released.
Francie continued: “He has a slight fracture in his tailbone, and a slight concussion.
“They’re taking care of him now. What they’re building is so [great].
What did Gary say after he got out of the hospital?
Shortly after Garry was released from the hospital, he paid tribute to his late mother on the first anniversary of her death via Instagram.
Garry posted a black-and-white picture of his mom on Instagram.
The emotional post reads: “I guess I have to realize that it’s only been 1 year. So many things have happened that I want to tell you about, and obviously so many things I need advice on.
“You always knew the path I was on and where it lead which helped you give me invaluable advice.
“To think I’ve not been able to lean on you for a year now makes me uneasy; but if your lessons taught me anything I can’t stop, I must keep going, until my dreams are a reality.”
Previously, the teen tweeted that it’s been “one of those days,” trying to figure out why he hasn’t received any messages from Beth.
When was Beth’s Celebration of Life?
Dog held a “celebration of life” for his late wife in June.
He and his family went to a river in Colorado, which was one of Beth’s favorite places, and where they used to spend Father’s Day weekend.
For the memorial, Dog filled one of Beth’s inflatable rafts with her favorite flowers, belongings, and a photo of her and set it free to float down the river.
Dog admitted he still could not believe Beth was “never coming home” and a whole year had passed since her death.
He also paid tribute to his fiance Francie – saying he could not have coped without her help.
