Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife, Beth Chapman, has had her fair share of struggles this year. Following her heartbreaking diagnosis of throat cancer — which the reality star revealed has spread — Chapman also suffered the loss of her beloved dog, LBJ, shortly after beginning chemotherapy treatments. Now, Chapman has shared that she has lost a human companion, her good friend — and member of the Chapman family’s support group, “The Dog Pound” — Tammy Lowery.
The Dog and Beth: On the Hunt starlet took to Twitter to share the sad news of Lowery’s passing. She added a lovely tribute to her social media accounts, complete with a picture of her friend. Lowery was seen wearing an oxygen tube, surrounded by a filtered overlay of roses, and the phrase “God Got Me.” Chapman didn’t reveal how her friend had passed, but did share that Lowery had fought hard and had never complained while she suffered.
Fans of the bounty-hunting couple took to Chapman’s post to express how sorry they were for her loss. Several longtime fans of Dog and Beth remembered Lowery for being kind and supportive to the family, as well as for being a key member of their community.
“Oh no this is very saddening news she was an awesome person she fought a good fight Rest In Peace Tammy May god protect her at all times terrible news to wake up to,” one fan shared.
“I don’t mean to like someone who died, but I hope she had a peaceful passing — what a sweet and wonderful soul. She is resting in God’s loving arms,” added another user.

Chapman has been very vocal about her grim diagnosis, and frequently updates her fans about her cancer journey — including sharing a selfie following her first chemotherapy treatment. Alluding to the common side effect of chemo — loss of hair — Chapman said that “cancer sucks,” and she would “stay humble pray” while continuing to fight for her life.
Though fans of Dog and Beth have been keeping up to date with the latest news that the couple shares, including that which surrounds their exciting new reality show Dog’s Most Wanted, they’re also watching out for news of the Chapman family matriarch’s health. As the Inquisitr previously shared, Chapman is a pro at keeping her fans in the know when it comes to everything from her illness to the happy times that her family shares.

The Dog The Bounty hunter star has opened up about her future funeral, should she lose her battle with cancer — and has revealed that she has had a hand in planning the event in order to take the burden off of her husband.
“She’s like, ‘Here’s the casket I want, and here’s the flowers.’ I said, ‘Beth, don’t say that.’ And she said, ‘What? You don’t want me planning my funeral? Well, I’m going to. And she’ll say, ‘You have to face the facts.’ But I don’t want to,” Dog previously said of the matter.
Fans — and members of the “Dog Pound” — will be keeping an eye on Chapman’s social media for the next update, and will continue to surround the reality star with love during this difficult time.
