'We gotta change, we need longevity': Duane 'Dog' Chapman and wife Beth reveal they will be quitting the bounty hunting business amid her throat cancer diagnosis

She recently revealed she was diagnosed with stage two cancer.

And now Duane 'Dog' Chapman and his wife of eleven years, Beth, have revealed they will be leaving the bounty hunting business.

'I don't know that he's looked for a job in the past 40 years, but we gotta change because we need longevity,' Beth, 50, told TooFab. 'We have small children, we have people counting on us.'

Beth explained that the dangers of her husband's job has led to even more stress in her life.

'I feel like, even though I had a 50/50 chance with this surgery, Duane has a 50/50 chance every time he leaves the house and that contributes to my stress,' she told the website.

'Will he come home alive every day that he leaves? There is a completely different mood in our country these days. There's a big movement out there that people are trying to push the fact that people are in jail because they're poor. 

'People are not in jail because they're poor, brother, they're in jail because they broke the law. That way of thinking could get law enforcement killed, it could get my husband killed. In going through something as traumatic as what we just went through, for me a lifestyle change is in order,' she said.

Dog, 64, explained he wants to remain in law enforcement.

'I would hope that whatever I did people could profit and get happy about it. I like to see, laugh and cry when it's in a good way. I don't know. For 40 years, I've done bounty hunting. 

'I think it'd have to be something in law enforcement. It's just amazing, we're taking it day to day, it's amazing she's alive. We're so glad that people prayed to God, there's a God. I made some deals with him this time. I made some good deals. I just thank God he's still with us.'

In an emotional email sent to friends in September, Beth revealed her cancer diagnosis: 'After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of Stage 2 throat cancer.
