Beth died at age 51 due to cancer. 

Beth was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in 2017 but by December of that year was announced to be cancer free.

By November of 2018, the cancer returned and she underwent chemotherapy before stopping treatment by mid-May.

In April, she was rushed to the hospital for breathing trouble related to the chemotherapy. 

In early August, burglars robbed his Colorado store – and took items belonging to Beth – including her personal bounty hunting gear, according to TMZ.

Days later, he narrowly avoided a $430,000 scam to fly to Dubai for a speech; Dog and his literary agent Alan Nevins of Renaissance Talent noticed red flags and didn’t end up cashing the check.

The star’s new show Dog’s Most Wanted, which debuted earlier this month, features footage of his late wife Beth.

He told TMZ that it was ‘too difficult’ to watch the footage and stayed out of the editing process of the show.
