Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman was hospitalized over the weekend after suffering a possible heart attack.

According to reports, the 66-year-old reality star was rushed from his Colorado home to a hospital after experiencing chest pains. Experts are reportedly still doing tests to determine exactly what the problem could be.

“I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably,” a rep told about the troubling situation. “Thank you for all of your well wishes — keep 'em coming."

Test results should reveal whether or not Chapman will need to undergo surgery following the incident.

Amid the unfolding medical crisis, Chapman’s Instagram and Twitter feeds each sent out a message with the caption: “Addiction shall not win.” They also urged those in need to “call my team for help.”

As previously reported, Chapman is still mourning the loss of his wife, Beth, who died in June after a long battle with throat cancer.

“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven,” Duane shared in an emotional Tweet at the time. “We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

Beth was just 51 when she passed away in the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii.

The mother of four was first diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in November 2017. Though she was recovering, the illness returned last year.

Duane dealt with the death by distracting himself – doubling down on his work catching bail bond jumpers.

At the end of July, Dog exclusively told, “I don’t know what to do. As long as I stay bounty hunting it’s the only thing that keeps my mind off how things are right now. I just have to keep working!”

Duane’s latest venture, Dog’s Most Wanted, has just premiered on WGN America. The show follows Dog as he continued to hunt wanted fugitives while also chronicling and dealing with his wife's cancer diagnosis.
